Ways to Welcome Loves Ones with Flowers at the Airport

While planning a special reunion with a loved one or an out-of-town guest at the airport, you cannot forget a luxurious and luscious bouquet of flowers. While these blooms are sure to help express your love, how much you have missed them, or how grateful you are to see them again, the way you present this thoughtful surprise can create a beautiful memory. To help spark some fun ideas, your friends here at Boyd’s Flowers, the best florist in Wilmington, are sharing our favorite ways to give flowers after a long flight.

Fun Ways to Present Flowers

Present Flowers at the Airport

Show your loved ones how much time you thought about reuniting with them as they walk off the airplane by presenting them with their favorite floral bouquet right then and there. You can make it sweet, romantic, or humorous by dressing up, creating a homemade sign, or even standing in line with other chauffeurs. As soon as you reunite with your loved one, trade the wrapped bundle of blooms for their baggage as a thoughtful gesture.

Spruce Up Your Car

If you prefer to soak in every second of your reunion with your friend, family member, or significant other inside the airport, it might be a great idea to leave their surprise floral bouquet in the car. Without juggling delicate blooms, you can be fully present and give them a hand with their luggage. Then, as soon as they open the door to your car, they will be met with their fantastic flowers, and maybe even a few more local surprises, like snacks, a welcome gift, or greeting card.

Decorate Your Home

If bringing flowers to the airport seems like too much excitement all at once, welcome them with a grand surprise as they arrive at your home. With a big bouquet of fantastic flowers waiting in the center of a table, drape a fun banner with their name on it from above. Then, complete the greeting with some sweet treats to indulge in together while you relax and catch up.

Tease with a Single Stem

If you love surprises, and your loved ones do too, bringing along a single bloom to the airport will set the tone for the rest of their welcome celebration. As this sweet sentiment puts a smile on their face, they will surely be surprised/ in awe when they find the rest of their bouquet at home. This is another way to ensure the flowers stay healthy and fresh in water and you don’t have to juggle bouquets and baggage through a busy airport.

Design a Flower Scavenger Hunt

Who doesn’t love a good, old-fashioned scavenger hunt? Among the many ways we can present flowers to our favorite travelers, this one is one-of-a-kind and perhaps the most entertaining. Grab a few stems from a large bouquet of “welcome flowers” to give to them at the airport, in the car, at a special location, at the home, or accommodations, all leading up to the grand finale over lunch or dinner. Tie a unique note to each bloom with clues, riddles, love notes, pieces of a sentence, or even an itinerary for their visit.

Dress Up the Dinner Table

After a long flight, we are certain that your loved ones are going to be nice and hungry for some local cuisine. Whether you fancy yourself a cook or favor ordering from the best restaurant in town, have a meal ready for their arrival and complete it with a beautiful bouquet of welcome flowers. They are sure to enjoy these meaningful blooms over a thoughtful meal as you catch up.

Flowers have been a significant part of cultures around the world for centuries, helping people express themselves and send messages to one another. We rely on blooms to enhance the meaning of life’s little moments and add beauty through their symbolism. As you plan to greet loved ones at the airport, your friends here at Boyd’s Flowers are here to ensure your reunion is nothing short of memorable.
