As we journey through life, celebrating the strides we make can help push us even further towards our goals.
There are many milestones worthy of recognition. If you want to celebrate the achievement of your friends and family, congratulations flowers are some of the most thoughtful gifts money can buy. Whether you're a flower person or not, following this short guide can help you get the right flowers to say ‘well done!’
Going back to Ancient Greece can help us see when flowers first became a symbol of gratitude and celebration.
Greece is famous for its games, like the Olympics. In those times, victorious athletes were awarded olive leaves in recognition of their achievements. Sending flowers to congratulate people became more popular during the 18th century with Sweden's Charles II and has continued until today.
It bodes well to pick the right congratulations flowers. This will mostly come down to the recipient's taste - something obvious (but occasionally overlooked) such as their favourite colour, can be a game-changer. However, if you're stuck on what to buy, Direct2Florist can really help you send flowers the right way.

Some of the best flowers for congratulations are listed below. Take a look and see which ones jump out at you.
The multi-coloured nature of carnations communicates achievement, admiration, and prowess. This is something you can give to your friends or family members if celebrating success in their career, family, business, etc.
The lilac flower is popularly known as the 8th-anniversary flower. So, when celebrating this wedding anniversary, look no further than lilacs. This wonderful gift of nature also signifies spring season-arrival, so it’s a nice gift for those spring celebrations.
Roses are quite popular when it comes to communicating love and affection. It's the first-stop on Valentine's day, or when one lover wants to show the intensity of their passion! It's also one of the most versatile flowers you'll find.
Aside from the red-coloured roses which are usually linked with romance, there are also white and yellow roses that stand for pureness and innocence, respectively. Roses are also ideal when a new baby is born.
