Here are some tips on how to choose the right Flowers

The beauty of flowers is that they're so versatile – it's hard to think of an occasion when they aren't an appropriate gift and let's face
it, if you're stuck for a gift idea, flowers are always a reliable fall-back solution. The only problem is that for most of us the world
of flowers can be a mysterious and daunting one; not everyone is blessed with a florist's expertise so knowing what to choose
can be a bit of a challenge.

Well chosen flowers really are a great way of expressing a whole range of sentiments from gratitude to congratulations to love.
So have a look at the following tips and hopefully you'll feel a bit more confident about choosing the right flowers to say exactly
what you want to say.

* Red Roses for Romance
If you're trying to woo someone or perhaps hoping to inject a bit of good old fashioned romance and spontaneity into your
relationship or marriage, flowers are still one of the most effective tools of seduction. The obvious choice here are roses,
the red rose in particular is still associated with love (it's traditionally symbolic of passionate love) more than any other flower
and as such still makes a good, classic choice. For something a bit different though there are plenty of attractive
alternatives – Lilies, Daisies, Orchids and Wildflowers for instance are all associated with conveying a message of love.
* SunFlowers for Congratulations
Obviously you're looking to express something of the celebratory spirit here so consider going for bold, bright and
contrasting colors that you feel really communicate a sense of fun and playfulness.
* Pink Carnations for Thank You
One of the most common sentiments behind floral gifts - flowers are ideal for expressing gratitude. There aren't really
any definitive rules here; the most important thing is that they convey a sense of sincerity and perhaps feel like you've put
some personal thought into your choice. A casually arranged selection of some complementary flowers of your choice
should be fine. Pink carnations are traditionally the floral symbol of gratitude.
* Bouquets for I'm Sorry
There are few more consistently effective ways of getting out of the dog house than with flowers, somehow a floral gift
makes it almost impossible for anyone to hold a grudge for too much longer. Go for arrangements of delicate warm
tones and put a bit of thought into an accompanying note.
* Get Well
Flowers can convey a sense of deeply felt empathy so they make the perfect gift to let someone know your thinking of them.
Ultimately what flowers you choose will come down to a personal decision but you could bare in mind a couple of
possible approaches: You could go down a couple of different routes here. Either stick with something restrained
and tastefully serene or why not go for a more positive, uplifting message with a bold, vibrant arrangement. Bare in
mind that ultimately flower-buying is a personal thing so don't feel too bogged down by these suggestions.
