New Baby Flowers

The birth of a new child is a joyous and memorable occasion for parents and their friends and family. When you want to send your support and congratulations on a baby girl or baby boy, flowers are an excellent choice thanks to their vibrant colour and scent, which will brighten up any day.

You can celebrate the arrival of a new baby in many ways. However, one of the nicest and most popular ways to show your care is by sending flowers for a new mum. If you’re unsure how to choose the right flowers, you can get some inspiration below.

  • When do you get a new mum flowers?

    Some babies are born early, while others come out late. As a result, most people choose to send flowers when they hear that the mother has gone into labour or they hear the child has been born.

    Sending flowers directly to the new mother's home is generally the best option. In recent years, many hospitals have chosen to ban flowers on some wards due to concerns about allergies. Additionally, sending flowers to the mother’s home means they have fewer items to transport home, which they’ll appreciate.

    When you hear that the baby and mother are returning home, you can use a same or next-day service to ensure your gift reaches them both in time. However, it’s perfectly acceptable practice to send a gift weeks after the baby is born too. 

  • What flowers are appropriate for a new baby?

    Baby flowers in Ireland are traditionally chosen based on their colour. However, there are several other popular approaches. Some people choose to buy flowers based on which season the baby is born in, while others pick flowers based on the birth month.

    Another thing to consider is the scent of the flowers. Anything too strong might be overpowering for the new baby's nose. Lightly fragranced flowers, like irises, daffodils, or sunflowers, can be a great choice.

  • Flowers for a new baby girl

    Pink flowers are an excellent traditional option when you want to express your congratulations on a baby girl. Roses, irises, carnations, and tulips are popular choices.

    Pink flowers symbolise love, happiness, gentleness, and femininity, which is why they are an excellent choice for a baby girl.

  • How to choose flowers for a new mum?

    If you know the gender of the baby, you can choose a traditional pink or blue bouquet. However, if you don’t have the information yet — or you’d rather choose something gender-neutral — a white, pastel, orange, or yellow bunch will work just as well.

  • Flowers for a new baby boy

    Blue flowers are an excellent traditional option for celebrating the birth of a baby boy.

    Blue flowers symbolise love, desire, hope, and beauty, which is why they are a great choice as baby shower flowers for a boy or as a gift to congratulate a mother on her new arrival.

  • Choose by season

    You can also choose to send flowers based on the baby’s birth season. For example:

    Winter: Carnations, Freesias


    Spring: Daffodils, Cherry Blossoms


    Summer: Gerberas, Sunflowers

    Autumn: Rose, Dahlias

  • Choose by Birth Flower

    Each month has an associated flower or two. For example, January has the Carnation and the Snowdrop, while February has Violet and Primroses. If you want to celebrate the birth of a child, you can choose a bouquet that symbolises the birth month of the new arrival.
