Flower Care & Handling Tips

Tips For Women Ordering Flowers

One of the biggest concerns that a woman has when choosing a gift for a man is how he would react to receiving flowers. It may come as a surprise that in a recent survey conducted by the Society of American Florists, over 60% of men surveyed said that they would like to receive flowers on Valentines Day. This hardly seems shocking when you think about the reason behind this occurrence - men like to receive flowers for the same reason that they send them... to be recognized.

All of us like to feel special, however, it requires a bit more tact when you send flowers to a man. First, when selecting flowers, stick to vivid hues such as orange, red, purple, bright yellow and gold. Men respond best to bright, powerful colors. Avoid pastels or traditional "feminine" designs. If you are unsure about the types of flowers you can always start off by sending a plant or dish garden.

Second, it is best to send contemporary or exotic arrangements. Linear or natural styles are better received than "fluffy" ones. In selecting an arrangement you can also try to incorporate his favorite hobby into the design. If he is a golfer you can include a box of golf balls. If he is into cars, maybe a car magazine should be tucked in.

Third, when choosing the right time to send him flowers, think about the occasions on which he sends you flowers. If he sends you flowers for your birthday or your anniversary, maybe those would be good times to send flowers to him. And don't forget about Valentines Day, a promotion, or as a host gift at one of his parties.

Florists have known for decades that men love flowers, and today there is an increasing trend of men buying flowers for their own homes and offices. They too like a bright arrangement on their desk or fragrant flowers in their foyer.

Tips For Men Ordering Flowers

Be Spontaneous.
You don't have to wait for a special occasion to give flowers. In fact, flowers given for no reason other than "I was thinking of you today" mean much more because they are unexpected.

Don't Overlook Anyone.
A bouquet can express a range of feelings -- from romantic to friendly to something in between. Your wife or sweetheart will love to receive a surprise gift of flowers. So will your mother, daughter, sister, and friends.

Try Something New.
Women are interested in a wide variety of flowers and colors. So, when giving roses, consider pink, peach, yellow, white, or assorted colors to catch her attention. And, remember, most women appreciate a beautiful assortment of fresh flowers, as well as roses.

Get More Bloom For The Buck.
The prices of some flowers vary seasonally. Roses, for example, are usually a great value during summer months. In the winter, mixed bouquets may be a better way to go.

Flowers Are Never Boring.
Because of their infinite diversity and unique appeal, flowers never lose their specialness. Each new floral arrangement is a fresh and individual declaration of appreciation -- reflecting positively on your imagination and thoughtfulness.

Flowers Don't Have To Mean Commitment.
Relax, guys. Women know when an arrangement simply means that you care.

Be Prepared.
When ordering flowers, have ready the recipient's name, address, and phone number. If you're not sure what to order, ask for assistance.

Get Professional Help.
Selecting flowers may be a bewildering experience for the uninitiated man. Fortunately, help is available. Consult your professional florist for a special arrangement that will match both your sentiment and her personality.

A Gift Of Flowers Goes A Long Way.
Every woman can remember the last time she got flowers!
