Fresh flowers are the perfect gift for many different occasions. Romantic occasions always call for a bouquet of perfectly arranged fresh blooms. There is no better way of showing your partner, spouse, or even your secret love interest how you feel, than with the right bouquet.
When looking for a bunch of flowers that will tell your love or crush how you feel, there are a few key points to keep in mind. Firstly, the colour of the bouquet is extremely important. Red is associated with romance and a very passionate form of love. Red flowers are great for those who are already married or in a long-term relationship with their partner. If you send red flowers to somebody you have just met, it might come across a little bit too strong. This is where pink flowers come in! Pink flowers send a more gentle message of love. They are feminine and perfect for that first date or even as a Valentine's day bouquet for your crush. Of course, if you know that your partner or love interest has a particular colour preference, you can send a bouquet consisting of their favourite colour. Even if this colour is not pink or red, the fact that you know their favourte colour will demonstrate just how well you pick up on those little details!
Another important factor to remember is flower choice. Roses of all colours are associated with love. The colour of the rose will determine the type of love your bouquet will express. For example, red roses represent romantic love while yellow roses symbolise friendship. When it comes to the colour red, you can rest assured that all red flowers symbolise romantic love. So, even if you prefer not to go for the classic bouquet of a dozen red roses, you can still choose an equally romantic bunch of tulips or another flower. You can even mix it up by using several different types of red flowers. Red roses, carnations, and gerbera daisies look wonderful together! Add a touch of greenery and what those bright flowers stand out even more! Like colours, if you know that the intended recipient has a particular flower preference, then choosing their favourite flowers will also be a thoughtful and romantic gesture. Keep your mind open when browsing around and don't hesitate to include anything from roses and carnations to stargazer lilies and a touch of foliage.
Last, but not least, take note of how your bouquet is presented. A professional florist knows the importance of presentation. Not only does it help your flowers look great but it also ensures that they are properly handled and protected. Hand-tied bouquets should have decorative paper wrapped around them whereas vase arrangements should be placed in the vase with just enough water to cover the ends of the stems.
Don't forget to ask your florist about including an optional extra or two. Some of the most popular romantic gifts that you can add to your flower order include chocolates, a stuffed animal, and a bright balloon. The gift you choose will depend on the recipient, of course.
