How to Create a Meaningful Airport Reunion with Flowers

If you’re planning on picking up a loved one from the airport, greeting them with a beautiful bouquet of flowers will make your reunion even more spectacular. Plus, it’s easy! With just a few tips from the flower experts at Evansville’s top florist shop, Zeidler’s Flowers, florals, you’ll soon be the man of the hour greeting your special person at the airport with more style and class than anyone else there.

Tips for Taking Flowers to the Airport

After deciding you will be bringing flowers to the airport, the next step is selecting the best choices of flowers. Use the below tips for guidance.

Big, beautiful bouquets are definitely impressive, but if you’re going into a crowd with a large floral arrangement, it’s likely to get jostled, damaged, and could be cumbersome to carry back to the car with additional luggage. Instead, choose small-to-medium bouquets. If you must go large, then take just one particularly striking stem to give to your SO at the airport and leave the rest of the bouquet at home for her.

If you happen to know which flower(s) your special person likes best, such as peach roses, then a bouquet including these blooms will be a great personal touch.

Be mindful of color symbolism and certain meanings different types of flowers carry to ensure you send the right message to the recipient. For example, a bouquet of yellow roses and white daisies expresses friendship and innocence, which is perfect for a friend or little sister, but not for a girlfriend or wife. When selecting flowers, refer to the below guide:

  • Hydrangea
  • Iris
  • Rose
  • Tulip
  • Orchids
  • Snapdragons
  • Peonies
  • Zinnia

Airports & Flowers – Tips for Keeping Flowers Fresh & Fabulous

  • If you purchased your bouquet the night before going to the airport, keep the stems in clean water and, if there’s room, place them in the fridge overnight to keep the flowers fresh. Before heading to the airport, take the flowers out of the vase and wrap the ends with wet paper towels to keep them hydrated. Wrap the rest of the florals in newspaper or tissue paper to protect them.
  • Get the flight number and arrival time of your visitor so you can keep track of their flight, find their gate, and arrive in plenty of time. (Being late ruins the surprise!).
  • Park in short-term parking so you can delight your guest at the gate and help them with their luggage. This is much more romantic than doing a curbside pickup.
  • Surprise your guest with even more flowers and a cold beverage for their ride home.
