As the people who spend nearly as much time with your kids as you do, teachers deserve some recognition. There’s a national holiday that celebrates educators and thanks them for the hard work they put into creating thoughtful lessons and performing many other unsung tasks throughout the academic year. This year, National Teacher’s Day falls on Tuesday, May 7. Why not show your appreciation for your child’s favorite teachers with some gorgeous floral arrangements that can brighten up their desks? Here are some of our top picks:
Present your child’s favorite teacher with this gorgeous arrangement, which is packed full of color and life, making it perfect for spring! Lavender roses, purple tulips, lavender alstroemeria, lavender miniature carnations, purple daisy spray chrysanthemums, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, lemon leaf and sword fern make for a full, lush display. This arrangement is presented in an iridescent aqua-colored glass vase, which your child’s teacher can reuse as a decoration in their office or to hold vital classroom supplies, like pens and pencils.
This stunning mixture of warm and cool colors will brighten up the classroom in no time. Comprised of yellow roses, blue iris, purple matsumoto asters, white daisy spray chrysanthemums and purple sinuata statice, the Sapphire Garden Bouquet will have students feeling cheerful and calm during what is typically the busiest part of the school year, with standardized tests and final exams in full swing. It arrives in a nice glass lantern that doubles as a candle holder that your child’s teacher can keep in the classroom or bring home.
This bouquet is one of Teleflora’s best sellers and for good reason. The delicate combination of light pink roses, white Asiatic lilies, white alstroemeria and white cushion spray chrysanthemums create a well-balanced, stunning display. Its pastel shades stand out against white statice and variegated pittosporum, as well as against the simple yet effective glass vase it arrives in.
It’s you child’s teacher’s ultimate goal to create a difference in the students they work with every day. Why not show them that their wish to impact your child’s life has come true? The Make a Wish arrangement is made up of bright blooms in pleasant shades of yellow, purple, orange and red. This mixture of carnations, daisy spray chrysanthemums, Matsumoto asters and alstroemeria brings a sense of optimism to the classroom, brightening the students’ spirits and — as a result — making their jobs that much easier and more enjoyable.
Are you looking to bring a sense of “zen” into the classroom to make your child and their classmates’ day a bit more relaxing? Present your child’s favorite teacher with the Zen Artistry arrangement, which features a unique combination of blooms that add some feng shui to any hum-drum classroom. Purple dendrobium orchids, green carnations, dark pink Sweet William, green hypericum, an emerald palm leaf, bamboo-like equisetum, sheet moss and galax leaves make for an eye-catching display when placed on a desk or tabletop. It arrives in a square dish that is kiwi-colored, adding a pop of energizing bright green that the kids will surely appreciate when they arrive in the morning for first period!
