What Are the Best Flowers for a New Baby?

Welcoming a new baby into the world is one of the most momentous occasions in a person’s life. You can show your support and love for the new mom by sending a beautiful bouquet of expertly selected flowers. Since most new moms and their babies don’t need to stay in the hospital for a long time, it may be best to have the flowers sent to the home rather than the hospital.

There are also plenty of thoughtful gifts for new moms that you can send to help them out during the challenging and joyous days to come.

Choosing a color palette for the bouquet

It’s traditional to send flowers in shades of red, pink, purple, and pastels to new moms who have welcomed a baby girl into the world. Similarly, people tend to send blue bouquets (often paired with white or yellow) to the home of a baby boy. You can stick with tradition if you wish, but it’s not strictly necessary. New moms would love a beautiful bouquet, no matter the colors. And if you aren’t sure about the gender of the new baby, feel free to choose bold colors like orange, yellow, red, or green.

Selecting Types of Baby Flowers

As an alternative to focusing primarily on the color palette, you can focus on specific types of flowers. Most bouquets feature multiple types of blooms, often accented by baby’s breath. However, you may want to carefully select the predominant flower type in the bouquet. Daffodils, for instance, are an excellent choice because they represent springtime, new beginnings, and new life. Daffodils will also brighten up any room with their cheerful presence.

Aside from daffodils, many other types of flowers are appropriate to welcome a new baby, including:

  •   Tulips
  •   Chrysanthemums
  •   Carnations
  •   Roses
  •   Hydrangeas
  •   Lilies

Thoughtful Baby Gifts to send to new moms

There are two main types of baby gifts you can send to the home: gifts for the new mom or the new baby. For the new mom, anything that pampers her, such as a gift basket containing fancy lotions, soaps, bath salts, and other spa items, would be welcome. She’ll also appreciate chocolates or chocolate-dipped strawberries, a fruit basket, or delicious snacks or teas. For the new baby, moms always enjoy layette items.
