About Us


The most important day in the year for any educational institution is Graduation Day. The Commencement Ceremony signifies the University’s validation of the completion of a rigorous and challenging curriculum, which leads to the conferring of a degree. The ceremony is dignified to present the right tone, but warm to capture the deserved celebration of the graduates, their families and friends.

Graduation Bouquets takes great pride in the special touch our floral bouquets add to the occasion.

Graduation Bouquets, the first of its kind in the nation, was established in 1988 by Karen Gattis. Karen, a purveyor of college rings, announcements, caps and gowns and diplomas was involved in all aspects of commencement. After hearing guests comment that they “wish they had brought flowers”, Karen realized there was a great opportunity for a blossoming flower business that could also serve as a fund raiser for the campus. Graduation Bouquets is a small company that prides itself on personal customer service, high quality products and constant recognition of the dignity of the ceremony.
