Top 7 Flowers to Send On Admin Day

March 17, 2022

Administrative Professional’s Day is right around the corner! Don’t let your favorite administrator go unnoticed.

National Administrative Professionals’ Day, also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day, recognizes the professionals who keep the workplace running smoothly day after day.

Sending flowers is the perfect way to show your favorite Admin just how much you appreciate all of their hard work, flexibility, and incredible ability to keep things organized.

Plus, they’ll look amazing on their work desk and keep them smiling all week long.

Wondering What Flowers to Send?

1. Tulips

Not only do tulips meaning that spring has officially hit, they also symbolize success, wealth, welfare. 

The meaning of the tulip also depends on the color you choose—which gives you endless opportunities to express your thanks (so many colors to choose from!).

For example, red tulips represent passion, whereas purple tulips are tied to royalty, and are symbolic of abundance and prosperity.

Perfect for well wishes and acknowledging the success of your favorite Admin.

2. Orchids

Orchids are super trendy right now. Have you noticed an increase in the number of orchid plants your local florist or grocery store is selling?

They’re flying off the shelves like hot-cakes and we’re so here for it.

Orchids typically represent perfection and luxury, especially in the Victorian era.

This was most likely a result of the rarity of the flowers, as they were only found in the Tropics at the time; therefore, only the rich had accessibility.

In ancient Japan, the orchid was treasured by royalty and considered a symbol of wealth. Perfect for showing your Admins just how treasured they are.

3. Hydrangea

Do hydrangeas make anyone else think of breezy summer days by the beach? Just us?

Hydrangeas are a classic beauty who’s colors also take a big part in their meaning. 

A white hydrangea is often gifted to brag on someone for a job well done, and a red hydrangea is given when someone is trying to express gratitude.

4. Daisy

The classic daisy may be a fan favorite, especially in the spring time, but that doesn’t discredit their beautiful meaning and symbolism!

One of the daisy’s many meanings is harmony and balance.

A perfect representation of your favorite Admin for all they do to keep things flowing smoothly and ensuring that everyone can continue to work in harmony as a team.

5. Carnation

Another fan favorite, carnations, especially pink carnations symbolize gratitude (yes, another one!).

We know carnations come in so many colors, so if you happen to know your Admin or Secretary’s favorite colors (or can find out), we’re 99.9% sure you’ll be able to find carnations in any color or colors you want. 

6. Dahlia

Who doesn’t love dahlias?

Their look is completely unique and they provide one of the most spectacular blooms in the flower kingdom. They come in countless sizes and colors, but each is distinct with their spike-like petals and vibrant colors.

The common dahlia represents staying graceful under pressure, especially in challenging situations. If dahlia flowers were a person, they would be an Administrative Assistant.

Pro Tip: The purple dahlia symbolizes kindness and grace.

7. Gerbera Daisy

They’re sleek, they’re elegant, they’re big, bright, and fabulous.

We’re talking about gerbera daisies.

Gerbera daisies have several meanings, all sharing a common denominator—happiness.

Gerberas are often said to represent an energized happiness instead of a more laidback, chill type of happiness. They are meant to evoke feelings of bubbliness and excitement you just can’t contain.

Think of them as an upbeat, vibrant celebration of life—perfect for the Admin who keeps everything together no matter how crazy they get.

However you decide to celebrate your favorite Administrative Assistant, be sure to show them how much all of their hard work really means to you.
