Apology Flowers for various Recipients
Mum, Grandma, Aunt or other Female Relative - so things are a touch easier when it's a female relative. You can choose to say I love you, you're my best friend, you have my loyalty and a host of other things and you're on safe ground, just avoid passion for obvious reasons. Roses - so whilst roses are a bit of a cliché they do have a classic elegance, try pink roses that signifies you respect the person for having grace and refinement, they can just mean thank you, other sources attribute the meaning Please believe me, to this simply elegant and beautiful bloom. Hyacinth (Purple): if you want something a little different try a bouquet with purple Hyacinth at its centre, this stately flower just states I'm sorry. Add a tendril or two of white ivy to signify affection and that you're anxious to please.
Work Colleague or Female Friend - are you trying to say sorry for something you did, or sorry for something that has happened to them, do you want to say I'm a friend and I'm here for you, or leave the door open for something more than friendship down the line. I'm a friend and I'm here for you: nearly everyone knows that yellow Roses are the symbol for friendship, yellow Poppies are the symbol for wealth and success and yellow Tulips say, there's sunshine in your smile. I'm your friend, for now: want to say I'm sorry but maybe hint at something else (once she's forgiven you), try a bunch of Tulips, red as a declaration of love, and white to say I am worthy of you.
Girlfriend or Wife - so sometimes you just need to Sorry I was a bit of an idiot, but I love you. Nuts signify being an idiot, but may not go down well when she's mad at you already, so maybe something a bit more floral and a clearer apology.Roses: So sometimes you just need to get a big bunch of Rose to make sure your message is clear and understood. A mixed bunch of Roses says You're everything to me. Red Roses say 'I love you' whilst Lavender Roses speak of your enchantment. Loyal love; Daisies say your love is mine and I'm loyal or even I'm innocent, add some Buttercups to speak to a childish side or Gladioli say I'm really sincere. Faithfulness and fidelity; Bird of Paradise and Passion Flower as well as being a beautiful flowers symbolises faithfulness, Ivy means fidelity and blue Violets say I'll always be true. It's all too easy to buy flowers without thinking of what they say, a dozen cheap tiny roses says, I got whatever I could and I didn't put much thought into it. Whilst a single perfect bloom says I love you. Decide what you want to say, what you're sorry for and let the flowers speak for you.
