A Man's Simple Guide to Buying Flowers
Posted on August 24 2016
Gentlemen, in the world of dating, buying flowers for a girl can be a frustrating task. With so many options and arrangements out there to choose from, how can you possibly narrow down picking out the right set of flowers for her? Well, today, you can put all of those questions and uncertainties aside, as we here at the Garden of Eden Flower Shop have put together a comprehensive, fool-proof men's guide to buying flowers. Just follow along, and we guarantee you'll be able to sweep her off of her feet. First things first: color. Find out what color she likes, and colors that she doesn't. Chances are you will already know this, but if you don't, (or if you forgot), there are ways to tell without asking her. Notice the color of the things she wears or carries around with her. If your girl wears a whole lot of blue, or carries around a pink handbag or cellphone, chances are very good that those are a few of her favorite colors. Next, think of a few ways to describe her. Is she the traditional, romantic type, or more of a rebel? Is she strong in her faith, or maybe very goal and career-oriented? These questions will help to determine what type of flowers to give her, and the style in which you give them. In addition, think of what you want to say. There is a world of difference between an arrangement that says "I love you" and one that says "happy birthday". Nothing is worse than giving her the wrong impression, or having her interpret your flowers in a very different way, so think out EXACTLY what you want to say. Now, it's time for you to do a little research on your own: finding a florist. Sure, a grocery store is great for flowers in an absolute pinch, but for a real personalized arrangement, that says exactly what you want it to, a florist is your best bet. Once you find your florist, walk into their shop (we have multiple in the South Jersey region) and tell the florist all of the answers to the steps up above. Your florist will then take all the information, and come up with a floral design that aligns with it. It's as simple as that. Picking out the right flowers for the girl in your life may seem like a daunting task, but with a little bit of know-how, you can cut that task down to size. And guys, remember: it is the thought that counts. No matter what you pick out, we promise that she will adore it all the same.
