Everyone loves receiving flowers, some more than others. In fact some expect flowers on a weekly basis from their husbands, for monthly anniversaries or even on a day-to-day basis, just so they can feel loved. Then there are those who appreciate the every now and again flowers and feel these have a greater impact. These sort of flowers are a great surprise, especially when delivered straight to the person’s doorstep. They also normally result in tears of joy and an “aaaaaah.”
Deciding when to send flowers though is only half the battle. Selecting the right flower is just as important, if not more. For example, it is unwise to send red roses to your best mate’s girlfriend as everyone knows red indicates love (unless you think you’re a character in a Hollywood rom-com).The same can be said for the types of flowers you choose.
Giving sunflowers to someone means “good luck finding that new garden-gnome” while daffodils mean “I forgive you for eating my blueberry yoghurt.” Netflorist has a fantastic selection of all these flowers and more and will help you say what you need to say best. Find the bouquet best suited to the occasion even one that requires apologising for accidently using someone’s toothbrush. Why not send an I’m sorry mug with some flowers for that person to store their new toothbrush in.
Floral fact #490: The first flowers to be given were in Sweden. A woodcutter gave them to his beloved for accidently mowing through her rose bush. He hid the remains under the kitchen sink, next to the biscuits which in turn led to the invention of the first ever rose water flavoured biscuits.
