What colors does she like to wear? Does she have a color theme in her car, bedroom, or house? Does she typically prefer very bright colors or does she usually go for more subtle hues? These are some of the questions you can ask yourself when picking out flowers to add to her gift. Once you have a good idea of her favorite colors, talk to a florist or look online to see what popular flowers are available in those hues. If you are still not sure, go with a bouquet that has a mixed color theme.

What Flowers to Bring on a First Date.

Guys generally shy away from a full bouquet of roses on first dates because of their perceived significance and value. Roses have a reputation for being fairly expensive and signifying love and passion. If you are still learning about the person you are dating, a bouquet of in-season flowers can be a great choice. We suggest requesting a garden mix, which usually is a bouquet full of the freshest flowers of the season. Another idea is to give her tulips or daisies. They are pretty and delicate and offer a token of appreciation perfect for the first time out together.

Choosing “I’m Sorry” Flowers.

Flowers have different meanings. A great source to find out which flowers have different meanings is with our Flower Guide. If you need to tell her you’re sorry, try sending Lilies, Orchids, Chrysanthemums, or daffodils. Make sure you include your apology in a note and perhaps even explain what the flowers in the bouquet mean. Paying attention to the colors of the flowers is also important. The color yellow could mean jealousy and purple is majestic glory. Whereas pink means poetic romance and white means sincerity.

Are There Specific Anniversary Flowers?

Anniversaries are important. It represents an investment of time and it is often celebrated depending on the number of years. Flowers are a joyous way to celebrate an anniversary and many anniversaries have a designated flower as explained in our Anniversary Pairings Guide. Giving her a bouquet that has one type of bloom matching the number of years together will surly be a great start to the celebration.
