Grand Opening Flowers: What They Mean
The grand opening of a new store marks a new chapter for somebody’s business venture and it is a very memorable day for any businessman no matter how many store chains or franchises they own. It is quite challenging to buy a congratulatory gift for someone who can buy almost anything, but just to let them know you believe in them and support them in their endeavors, giving a bunch of flowers is a nice option.
Grand Opening Flowers And Floral Stands: How To Choose One
Grand Opening Flowers are intended to be given as a store display (in the form of tall, floral stands) or as a hand-held gift for the store owner themselves. You can give both, of course, but if you’re on a shoestring budget, giving a bouquet of flowers which you can physically hand over to the owner will do.
The most common flowers used for grand opening bouquets and floral stands are gerberas (gerbera daisies), anthuriums, orchids, roses, carnations and chrysanthemums. These flowers can be arranged on a short congratulatory stand wrapped in golden silk cloth or red linen, or on a large stand that can be used as a centerpiece.
Remember that the flowers should be arranged in a square or rectangular form and not in a triangular one as the latter is more associated with funeral floral stands. Tie the whole floral masterpiece together by pinning a sash with your well wishes across the bunch of flowers or by tucking a note on the floral stand.
Grand Opening Flowers: Cost And Delivery
Flower bouquets can cost anywhere from $30 to over $400 in Singapore depending on the choice of flower and size of the bouquet. The buyer will also incur additional charges if the flowers are requested to be delivered to the site of the grand opening although in some cases, delivery may be free. Prices of flower bouquets often fluctuate; special holidays will either bring down or mark up the prices of flowers. There are floral shops, however, that offer discounts on bulk orders for the whole year round.
