What Flowers Should You Give New Parents to Welcome the Arrival of their Baby?

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

The arrival of a new baby is a special occasion in a couple’s life. And there’s no better way to congratulate the parents and partake in their joy than by giving them flowers. You can send a flower bouquet or a flower basket to welcome their new bundle of joy into the world.

So if you know someone who has recently given birth to a child, you can’t go wrong with a baby-themed floral arrangement. It’s sure to put a smile on the parents faces. But with so many flowers out there, which colour or type of flower do you pick? Should you also add extra items like a soft toy and balloons to the flower arrangement? What about a special treat for the parents? To help you choose the perfect congratulations gift, here are some tips.

Choosing a colour

Traditionally, pink flowers are given for a baby girl and blue flowers are given for a baby boy. But you’re free to choose any colour or combination of colours you want. You can get gerberas in primary colours or a green and white combination of lilac and ruscus. Or you can spice things up by giving purple and white flowers for a girl and red flowers for a boy. For a gender-neutral floral arrangement, go with white flowers.

Type of flower

Pink and blue flowers

If you’re going down the traditional route and want a pink arrangement for a baby girl, you can choose from the following flowers:

  • Stargazer lilies
  • Bouvardia
  • Lisianthus
  • Sweet Akito rose
  • Pink ruscus
  • Cymbidium orchid
  • Daisies
  • Gerberas
 

For a baby boy, consider these flowers for a blue arrangement:

  • Flox
  • Freesia
  • Thistles
  • Hyacinth
  • Orchid
  • Irises
  • Delphinium
 

The birth month flowers

If you want to buy a flower that matches the birth month of the baby, here’s what they are:

  • January – Carnation
  • February – Iris
  • March – Daffodil
  • April – Daisy
  • May – Lily
  • June – Rose
  • July – Larkspur
  • August – Gladiola
  • September – Aster
  • October – Marigold
  • November – Chrysanthemum
  • December – Poinsettia
 

The meanings of flowers

You can also buy flowers for the baby and/or the parents depending on their meanings. Here are some flowers and what they mean:

  • Apple blossom – promise
  • Azalea – abundance
  • Peony – healing
  • Queen Anne’s lace – delicate femininity
  • Star of Bethlehem – hope
  • Stephanotis – good luck
  • Pink tulips – caring
  • Blue violets – faithfulness
  • Yarrow – good health
  • Aster – contentment
  • Bronze chrysanthemums – excitement
  • Daisies – innocence
  • Gardenia – joy
  • Gladiolus – strength of character
  • Hibiscus – delicate beauty
  • Hydrangea – perseverance
  • Orchid – love, Chinese symbol for many children
  • Statice – success
  • Daffodils – new life and new beginnings
  • Carnations (in different colours) – happiness
  • Pink roses – friendship
  • White roses/lilies – purity and innocence
  • Yellow roses – care and joy
 

You should also pick flowers that are robust and will last long, but still look elegant enough for the baby. Carnations are one of them and they have a soft, ruffled appearance and delicate perfume. Or you can opt for gerbera daisies, which look pretty, last for a week, and come in various colours so you can easily find the colour combination you want.

Other elements of the arrangement

You can choose to have the flowers arranged together in wrapping paper (bouquet), a basket, a ceramic pot, a glass vase, or a square or round gift box. Or you could give a potted plant such as a miniature rose to mark the baby’s birth and growth. You can also include a complimentary message card.

Adding extra items

You can add extra items to the flower arrangement to introduce a bit of your own style into the gift and turn it into something truly special. This includes:

  • It’s a Boy/Girl! balloons
  • Teddy bears or other stuffed animals
  • Baby figurines or mother and child figurines
  • Baby rattles and toys
  • Baby-themed picture frames
  • Music box
 

A gift for the parents

Parents of the new baby will appreciate the thought you put into their gift especially if you keep their likes in mind. You can give them an arrangement of peach or yellow roses, which are pretty and elegant. Or you might want to find out what kinds of flowers and colours they like so you know exactly what to buy.

You can also add extra items such as chocolates, sweets, cookies, wine, or a little figurine. A basket of useful baby products (lotions, scrubs, soaps, sprays) and a book about how to deal with parenthood are good too.
