We’re sure you’ve heard the saying “never show up empty-handed,” but we know that figuring out what to bring to a party or special event can be rather difficult sometimes, especially when there are a ton of other people attending who also don’t want to show up without something. Take a summer BBQ for instance – while you may be interested in bringing brownies or homemade chocolate chip cookies, chances are several other guests have the same idea, making it your job to find something else if you want to stand out.
If you’ve been in a predicament like this before, then you’ve come to the right place – we have a solution for you that will always be a big hit. What is it, you ask? A fruit bouquet! While these are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser no matter where you go or what you’re celebrating, here are some of our favorite occasions for showing up with or sending a fruit bouquet:
Birthdays usually aren’t complete without a cake, but they can be made even sweeter with a fruit bouquet! Arrangements can even be found with happy birthday balloons, making them both delicious and festive.
Whether you’re having clients come in for a meeting, throwing a dinner party to show your employees some appreciation, or hosting your annual holiday celebration, a fruit bouquet is a must-have on the dessert table. For these events, opt for something that’s covered in chocolate – especially if the event is on the formal side.
For baby shower hosts that are expecting a lot of guests, you’ll want to consider using fruit bouquets for centerpieces – we bet friends and family won’t have seen a centerpiece that they can munch on before! On the other hand, for those baby showers that are going to be more intimate, especially for those with a dessert buffet, think about some chocolate covered strawberries or cherries that guests can keep on the side of their dessert plate.
Or second dates, or third dates, or any date really. For those who are planning an evening out, there’s no better way to end the night than by sharing one of these romantic arrangements. For the gents out there, never forget that chocolate can be the way to a girl’s heart!
Any celebration for the bride and groom warrants a fruit bouquet, so also consider one for bridal showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and potentially even the wedding too! Our celebration and congratulations collections have a number of arrangements that can be enjoyed by groups that are both large and small – just take your pick!
Although these occasions definitely call for a fruit bouquet, remember that you really don’t need a reason to send one to someone! If you’re looking to do something nice for a friend or family member, sending an arrangement “just because” is one of the best things you can do.
