Very often when we have married men coming in for wedding anniversaries or for a just because bouquet (which men in my opinion should get their wives at least twice a year) they have no idea what kind of flowers their wives like. Two questions I always ask the guys are what were the flowers she chose for your wedding? And if they don’t know what they were I ask what were the colours she chose for the wedding? Very often women will choose their favorite flowers and colours for their wedding! If the florist has those flowers or something in those colours you are almost guaranteed that she’ll love it!
When buying flowers for your girlfriend, it’s usually best to choose bright colours or statement flowers. Go with something you have never seen before, something funky or different like a parrot tulip! Parrot tulips (seen at the top of this post) are just like normal tulips except for their large size and feathered edges. Other great choices are bird of paradise or Ginger! Both are very bright exotic flowers that are sure to charm you girl! If you can’t find a florist who stocks these exotics, go with either a cymbidium orchid or a dendrobium orchid, both very stunning and popular in prom corsages.
That’s all for me this week! Please check in next Friday when I talk about the difference between flowers in flower shops and flowers in your garden, and remember to support your local florist!
