Flower Bouquet Ideas
for a 60th Birthday
A New Year is Always a New Bloom
Trees bear fruit in season annually, and
sometimes more than annually. As those trees mature, so does their fruit; and so
it is with human beings. Especially for ladies who have become the matriarch of
a family over time, what they’ve borne through the years becomes its own
spinning human eddy. But people of all kinds bear fruit over time.
Just because she’s not become the
grandmother society expects doesn’t mean she hasn’t sewn creative seeds
throughout her life equally reflected in the beautiful flowers of a fine
Accordingly, just as individual as she is,
for her sixtieth, you can find a fine bouquet solution that precisely matches
her personality. We’ll explore a few ideas to help get your
1. Fine Classics from Flower Makers Who Know Their Craft
First, look at what professional florists
are up to. Because each year is a new beginning where a soul brings their
particular creative spice to the world, flowers tend to be very popular for
birthdays. That’s one of many reasons a fine
flower "happy birthday" bouquet can
say a lot to many people.
Even though you’re considering options for
someone in their sixties, just remember that individuals have that same
uniqueness as different sorts of flowers do. Before getting the most popular flower arrangement making the shape of a “6” and a “0”—though that could well be
the best move—you might want to additionally explore

options before finally choosing.
2. Potted Beauties Designed to Bloom through the Years
Flowers with cut stems
be made to last much longer than you might expect in a vase with flower food, stem trimming,
placement of illumination, and water management. However, you can also get
flowers that are potted in such a way they bloom through multiple cycles within
the home, so long as they get water and proper light.
3. A Finely-Wrought Flower Crown
The age “sixty” is special; vestiges of
youth are not totally gone, yet maturity of years has made an individual
exceptionally wise. Certainly, no one lives forever, but in this day and age,
provided one is conscientious and maintains enough joie de vivre, it’s very
likely to live into one’s late nineties. So really, the sixties are sort of like
the beginning of the third act of life.
They could even just be the middle of
someone’s “second act”; it depends on the person. Regardless, making it to sixty
means someone has seen a lot of life, and done a lot of things right.
Accordingly, a flower crown is quite appropriate, and a fun little way to
celebrate this benchmark decade.
4. A Hawaiian-Themed Celebration With “Leis” You Make
The Hawaiian “Lei”, that particular wreath
worn like a necklace made of flowers, is especially festive and fun.
A lot of people approaching that sixtieth
birthday are in a financial place where they might well vacation in the tropics. If
something prevents the trip, a fine Hawaiian-themed celebration at home can act
as a worthy replacement; especially if you get the right sort of flowers and
make your own leis.
5. Sixty Roses for Sixty Years: Roses Like Candles
One rose for every year of life makes a
large bouquet. A dozen roses five times makes sixty. So five-dozen roses
presented individually, or as a group, can really make a statement. For a
change, instead of candles, you might bring the loved one in your life who is
passing into this sixth decade a huge amount of roses.
The appearance, smell, and sheer number of
these flowers will likely make a memorable impression. Just do the work to clip
them and vase them, either individually, in groups, or within one very large
vase; whatever makes the most sense. This will make a big statement, be striking
to the eye, and definitely represents a striking sort of bouquet arrangement.
A Flower Bouquet that Says: Your Bloom is Endless
Whether you bring the new sixty-year-old in
your life sixty roses in a bouquet, get a little tropical with it through either
purchased or hand-made Hawaiian Leis, crown their achievements in life with a
flower-wrought circle of royalty, celebrate long-term fruitfulness through a
multi-bloom potted flower arrangement, or give a classic bouquet; flowers are
fine for a sixtieth birthday.
Explore what’s out there, consider who the
recipient is, and get creative. There are all sorts of options; what works best
will be that which you know resonates with the maturing special person in your
