Appropriate flower or plant birthday gift for friend
June 30, 2014 12:07 PM Subscribe
A dear friend of mine is turning forty-mumble-something tomorrow. We are getting together to celebrate this weekend, but I would like to send flowers or a plant to her office on her actual birthday. Would it be awkward to receive flowers from someone who is not a significant other? (We really are just friends - no romantic undertones.) Are there only certain kinds of flowers that would work? I am leaning toward sending her a nice plant, but not sure if plants are reserved for condolences/sympathy. More details inside.

is a plant I thought might be nice. What do you think?
We are both in the SF Bay Area. She is in Berkeley. Delivery needs to be tomorrow (July 1). I would like to use a local florist if possible. Budget is $100, including delivery. She has significant diet restrictions, so cupcakes, Edible Arrangements, etc. aren't an option.
