What Flowers to Send for Back to School

back to schoolWe’re barely halfway through the summer and thoughts are already turning to the start of the school year. Even though school may not start for over a month, it never hurts to get a head start on buying school supplies, clothing, linens and towels, and other accessories for college students who will be living away from home. It’s also a good time to start thinking about thanking the people who teach, advise, and do everything else to prepare your children for the real world. The Conklyn’s Flowers design team looks forward to helping you find the perfect back to school gift for your college student, or for your younger children’s teachers.

We’ve come up with some suggestions that are ideally suited to giving to a college student in their dorm room, apartment, or a bedroom in a sorority or fraternity house. We hope that our suggestions will help you choose a gift more easily. We are always happy to help our customers choose the perfect gift for any occasion.

Burst of Sunshine

Be Happy is an adorable arrangement that appeals to everyone. The sight of this cute smiling face mug that is filled with yellow roses and yellow and white daisies is guaranteed to make anyone smile. The keepsake mug is a lasting reminder of your thoughtfulness, and the message that comes with your gift.

Cobalt Beauty is the epitome of thoughtfulness. The long, narrow cobalt blue vase is a good size for a table or desk. The vase won’t intrude on a workspace. This quintessential summer arrangement is filled with beautiful big sunflowers and delicate dark blue delphinium. We add some colorful filler and decorative curly willow sprigs for texture and drama. It comes with a special tag that says, “You brighten up our office.” It’s a fantastic way to brighten up a classroom, dorm room, common area at a school, or any other space.

When you want to give someone a gift of flowers that’s guaranteed to make them smile and feel warm and fuzzy inside, you can’t go wrong with our Burst of Sunshine bouquet. We carefully arrange ten huge sunflowers in a clear glass vase. To dress the vase up, we wrap it in a rustic red mesh fabric. The arrangement comes together with a plaid yellow and orange bow that looks spectacular against the yellow sunflowers. The arrangement combines elements of summer and early fall to deliver a message that’s straight out of Mary Oliver’s Sunflower Poem: “Come with me into the field of sunflowers.”
