How to Choose a Grand Opening Flower Stand

| Wendy Han

Grand openings are momentous celebrations to commemorate the start of a new business chapter. 

While turning up at the ceremony is a sweet way of showing your support, sending a stunning flower stand to the venue could convey your well wishes and also brighten up the party venue in Singapore! 

While choosing a congratulatory flower stand seems as simple as ABC, there are also a lot of ways it could go wrong. 

Since you don’t want to send the wrong message, make sure to follow our tips down below.


1. Find out flower meanings and symbolism

Before buying a congratulatory flowers stand from our florists, it is a good idea to understand what each flower symbolizes. Only then can you choose the right congratulatory flowers that stand out and customize your gift according to your requirement. 

Let’s look at some flowers that are often a part of the traditional congratulatory flower stand. Along with it, we will also highlight what each flower symbolizes so that you can make the right buying decision.


Eustomas are vibrant in colour. One thing which is for sure is that they are quite mesmerizing. In addition to that, they symbolize happiness and harmony. The presence of Eustomas in the flowers stand not only adds to the aesthetics but also channels some much-needed positive vibes.


Is the event being attended by very important persons (VIPs)?

Want to respect and honour them?

If yes, do make sure that peonies are a part of the flowers stand. These are not only elegant, but often used to honour others. 

Making them a part of the flower stand certainly indicates respect and gratefulness.


Also known as buttercup, Ranunculus flowers appear delicate and dainty. They represent beauty and elegance. Try playing with a mix of warm colours like red, pink and orange to get an eye-catching flower stand.


When you’re buying a grand opening flower stand, it is better to add sunflowers that can ward off evil eyes. They are the perfect flowers to add to your congratulatory flowers stand as they are eye-catching and carry light but fragrant scents.


Pink and yellow tulips are another great addition to the congratulatory flowers stand. Yellow tulips symbolize cheerfulness. On the other hand, pink tulips symbolize confidence and happiness. Both these make the perfect choice when looking to assemble a flower stand.


 2. Consider taboo colours and flowers

Did you know that a few flowers and colours are strict no-no’s when it comes to grand opening flower stands?

In fact, these represent negative situations. Hence, you need to avoid them. Common among them are white roses, white lilies, and chrysanthemums. Oftentimes, these flowers are used for sad events like funerals, and so on. Thus, many superstitious people do not prefer them on auspicious occasions. Rather than upsetting or offending someone by including them in the flowers stand, it is better to avoid them altogether.

To avoid any negative vibes, avoid taboo colours like white and the taboo flowers. Instead, stick to bright colours and celebratory flowers.


3. Decide on the arrangement

The best way to use flowers stands is to grace the venue with numerous flowers stands. To do so, you have to opt for a precise arrangement.

The goal is to enhance the beauty of the venue with these stands. However, including too many of such stands can create a mess. You have to break the monotony without overusing the flowers stands.

Reach out to your local florist and inform their team about the event and ask for their recommendations.
