New Baby Flowers Gift Ideas

Occasions Written by: Arbour blooms Posted on: 15/03/2024

The pending arrival of a new baby is such an exciting time for all involved. Whether it’s a firstborn, twins, triplets or number seven (wow!), joy and happiness abound. As florists, of course, we believe that flowers are the perfect way to mark such a momentous occasion. 

But what blooms, when and why? Our talented team of local Arbour Blooms florists shares their top recommendations for congratulations flowers for a new baby.

Spectacular Baby Shower Flowers For Mum 

Baby showers have really grown in profile over the years. They are a wonderful opportunity for (typically) mum and her friends and family to meet and celebrate the pending arrival. The occasion can be as high-profile or modest as mum wants. 

You can use baby shower flowers to help style the event or turn to blooms as the perfect gift. If you are looking for baby shower flower interior decorating ideas, it’s important to think of mum. 

Does she have a favourite flower? What colours does she love? How will the room be styled? What flowers are in season this time of year? Answering these questions will help refine your options and make selecting the perfect baby bouquet easier.

Baby Shower Flowers That Our Florists Recommend 

If the season permits, peonies are such a popular choice. Feminine, romantic and available in a variety of soft colours, they complement most decor arrangements and styles. They look oh-so-sweet in small vignette vases for a simple, utterly elegant appeal. Or turn to a more rustic look and create bigger bunches in vintage jugs. Add foliage such as fresh-scented eucalyptus and you have a real show-stopper. 

Divine Flowers For Newborn Baby Girl 

We’re not suggesting any flower is best for one gender or the other. We’ve created this section purely to offer some baby flowers gift ideas that might work for you. By all means, if you’re celebrating the arrival of a little girl and prefer our recommendation for new baby boys, go right ahead. And vice versa; there are no rules in the baby flower bouquet world.

This tray of flowers is such a fun way to give a gift of blooms. It’s also a gift that keeps on giving – the lucky recipients can make good use of the tray and bottles well after the flowers have gone.

Stunning Flowers For New Baby Boy 

Again, don’t feel like you have to conform to stereotypes. Any bouquet of baby boy flowers is perfect! You can send a dozen red roses if that’s what you feel like doing and you know it’s a great fit.

We just can’t go past a lily vase. Yes, lilies are often associated with fertility, but that’s not why we recommend them. We think this bouquet is glorious in its natural, unadorned simplicity. 

Flowers For New Mum 

OK, bubba has arrived, but the parents’ hard work is far from over. The weeks and months ahead can be some of the most joyous and exhausting; parents will tell you they hardly have time to shower, let alone get everything else done. So we’ve got a particularly thoughtful recommendation if we say so ourselves…!

We’re not so much recommending flowers but more so a flower subscription! Sending a bunch of fresh flowers every month is such a touching gesture. It recognises that the busy family might not have time for tiny pleasures, and it adds such a stunning touch of colour and joy to the home.
