You can never go wrong with flowers, no matter the occasion, or the lack thereof. But you can always wisely up the ante by knowing which flowers to get for your special someone. More commonly, people tend to base their choice of flowers on their personal intent or feelings for the recipient, i.e. they pick the flowers that convey these emotions. However, not all people know what every flower, or its specific color, really means. And just as the giver would have researched first which one means which, you can’t really expect anyone to understand what you are trying to express with your flowers unless prior information is provided. So, there’s a better way. Instead of thinking of what the flowers mean, why not think of who your “flower” is.
Birthday, Valentine’s, anniversary, graduation, or “Just Because”, the secret to that ultimate flower value is to have a good idea of the kind of person your special someone is. That’s easy as flowers and humans, especially women, can be identified with the following categories: natural, romantic, expressive, traditional, and contemporary.
Natural people are gravitated towards earthy sceneries; they love earth colors and outdoorsy ambiences, and appreciate the relaxing splendor of nature. You may opt to match their temperament with garden flowers adorned with lots of green and rustic accents.
The romantics, on the other hand, are gentle, passionate, and extravagant. They get excited with bouquets accompanied by an amorous feel. Flowers with a light fragrant scent, pastel colors, and laced with sweet accents are most appreciated.
People who are artistic and/or outspoken and are usually known to have their own niche; they freely express their emotions, and are commonly thought of as those who shun flowers away. But this is not true. They do appreciate the gesture, but their grandest gratitude are seen when they receive a creative arrangement of exotic flowers with an artistic combination of colors and texture.
Traditional individuals prefer the classics. These people are usually family-oriented home-buddies who love tradition and culture. It is great to respect their taste by giving them a lush but humble arrangement of a wide variety of flowers.
Lastly, the contemporaries are modern by nature, and are very spontaneous. You can balance the old-fashioned notion of giving bouquets by arranging them into vogue styles. Pick vibrant and full-blossom flowers in monochrome. And then try to arrange them asymmetrically.
If you know the person’s favorite color or favorite flower, then that’s a bonus. Whenever necessary, you may also want to check with your florist for some little guide on flowers and their meanings, but don’t get boxed by it. These are simply options that you can play around with. Once you get the right combination, you may then arrange them to the kind that perfectly suits your special someone’s personality.
