The Ultimate Guide to Choosing Flowers for Every Occasion

Flowers have the magical ability to brighten a day, express emotions, and add a touch of beauty to any occasion. But with so many varieties and colours available, choosing the perfect arrangement can feel overwhelming. As your local florist, Flowers of Canterbury is here to guide you through choosing the perfect flowers for each occasion, with options for same-day flower delivery to ensure freshness and timely arrival. Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary, or any special day, selecting the right bouquet can enhance the celebration.  Here’s how to make every event memorable with the floral selection.


Birthdays are all about celebrating the special someone in your life. Celebrate another year with vibrant and cheerful flowers. Bright sunflowers, stunning Gerbera daisies, or a mixed bouquet featuring a variety of colourful flowers are perfect to bring joy and energy to the occasion. Order flowers online from us for convenient and thoughtful gifting.


Mark your special milestone with classic roses which symbolise love and admiration. Depending on the number of years celebrated, you can tailor the quantity and colour of the roses: red for romance, white for loyalty, or pink for appreciation. Ensure the flowers arrive in perfect condition with our reliable flower delivery in Canterbury.

Weddings and Formals

For weddings, delicate white lilies or classic roses in soft pastels set a romantic and elegant tone. For formals, a corsage or boutonniere with orchids can add a sophisticated touch. Check with our local florist near you to customise arrangements that complement the event’s theme.

Mother’s Day and Holidays

Show appreciation on Mother’s Day Flowers with pink carnations, the traditional flower for this holiday, or mixed bouquets with lilies and roses. During the holidays, opt for seasonal flowers like poinsettias or festive holly arrangements.

Choosing the right flowers for each occasion ensures your sentiments are perfectly conveyed. With us by your side, you can order flowers online with ease and confidence, knowing that each bouquet is prepared with care and expertise. Whether it’s through same-day flower delivery or online flower delivery, we ensure your floral gifts arrive fresh and beautifully arranged, making every occasion special.
