WHAT TO WRITE IN A BIRTHDAY CARD

A birthday card message sent with flowers can be hard to write, especially if you want something a little different or extra specially heartfelt. Receiving flowers any day of the year is a wonderful surprise, but getting them on your birthday can make the day extra special. And getting the message just right can turn a great gift into one that’s remembered and talked about for a long time afterwards.

To help you find the right words, we’ve listed a few of our favourites. And remember – don’t joke about the recipient’s age unless you know they won’t be offended! We wouldn’t want you to ruin a beautiful relationship…

If you haven’t chosen the flowers to go with your birthday message card, may we offer some birthday flower suggestions?
