Let your florist help you choose the perfect bunch

Many people think of florists as flower arranging professionals. While this is true, florists also know how to give expert advice when you are shopping for the perfect bouquet for a loved one. If you are not sure what to buy, have a chat with your florist and make sure that you discuss the following important points.

Start with the recipient’s personality. Our flower and colour preferences are often dictated by our personality traits which means that your florist will know how to connect the dots even if you’re not sure about the recipient’s favourite flower. If you do know what their favourite flower or colour is, you can mention this as well since it will make the florist’s job that much easier.

If the bouquet is for a specific special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, let them know! Different occasions call for different types of arrangements. For example, sympathy flowers will have a softer, more comforting appearance whereas birthday flowers are usualy bright and bold.

If you are ordering flowers to decorate a particular event, you should tell your florist about the event, the location, and how many tables or spaces need to be decorated. If there is a colour scheme or theme for the event, your florist will need to know so that they can arrange bouquets accordingly.

Ask your florist about vases and, if you have your own, you should mention it to the florist before placing your order. This will help the florist choose flowers to suit the size, style, and colour of the vase.

Should you have any preferences with regards to mixed flower arrangements or if you want a bouquet that consists of a single type of flower, you should mention this as well. Your florist might come up with the most intricate design but, if you wanted something simple, even the most elaborate display will not impress you.

Don’t forget to have your basic information like your contact details, name, delivery address, and the recipient’s details on hand. When you place your order, the florist will need all of this information in order to avoid any confusion or delays.

No matter the occasion or the recipient, your skilled florist has the experience and training necessary to ensure that you get exactly what you want and more! As long as you provide them with specific details, you can be sure that they will deliver.
