Birthday gifts can be tricky. We want to send a message with love, something they’ll love and that brings them joy. Flowers are a classic way of showing someone how much they mean to you. At Belles Fleurs, we have bouquets for every occasion and best of all, you can customise your gift to suit your loved one's taste and style. All our flower arrangements are skilfully crafted by our in-house florists using the freshest blooms available, making each bouquet a unique creation. Here are some tips for choosing the perfect birthday flowers, no matter the occasion.


The choice of flower used in a bouquet depends on the taste of the person receiving it. If it’s a romantic partner, a vibrant bouquet of red roses is always a winner. For a neighbour or colleague, you might play it safe with an elegant white spray or hat box. For a friend, a bright and beautiful arrangement with a splash of colour is usually a great choice, brightening up their homes and their day. If you’re unsure, we can create an arrangement with a neutral colour scheme. Oranges, yellows, greens and whites always go down a treat.

Flower Choice

It's hard to go wrong with a floral bouquet for a friend's birthday. The perfect birthday flowers are those that give messages of happiness and celebration. Vibrant warm colours like orange and yellow are perfect choices for birthday bouquets, with lilies and roses being among the most popular options. You already know the birth date of the recipient which will help you choose a bouquet based on their birthday flower. Many months have several birth flowers and we’re happy to incorporate them if requested.

It’s hard to think of the perfect thing to say to accompany the perfect bouquet. At Belles Fleurs Florist in Blanchardstown, we have read, written and sent hundreds, maybe thousands, of birthday messages in our 25 years of business so we’re happy to help! We find a simple Happy Birthday goes a long way but we are very happy to include a personalised message with your order, so the recipient knows exactly how much you care.

Birthday Flower Tips

When in doubt, seasonal flowers are always a good option. Just like fruit and vegetables, flowers smell and look better in their natural season. Try to imagine where the flowers will go in their homeor office – perhaps a hatbox arrangement will suit better than a bouquet. Check if the person has a pollen allergy in case your gift causes more harm than good! Try to pick a time for delivery when you know they’ll be home as our delivery drivers can only attempt delivery once.
