Graduation season is an exciting time of year when the anticipation of what’s to come is in the air – not to mention the pride of what’s been accomplished. For the grads in your life, from the smallest to the wisest, celebration and tribute are well deserved. All over the world, different traditions and customs permeate the event. In Sweden & Russia, for instance, caps and gowns are not worn, but instead, sashes make up the extent of the traditional attire. America’s history of the cap and gown can be traced back to the Middle Ages when long liturgical robes were the standard within learning institutions which were all run by the church.
In ancient Rome, the gladioli were given to victorious warriors; to this day, they are given to signify admiration. A magnolia bloom has always been given to recognize great perseverance, and a purple iris is a recognition of wisdom. This bright bouquet is a fitting gift for any graduate, not only because of its celebratory balloons but because it showcases the yellow rose, which is given to those who have reached the highest distinction in their field.
It’s no secret that floral arrangements put a smile on just about anyone’s face. This graduation day, inspire your accomplished student with the gift that represents their accomplishment and ties to their alma mater.
