Matching flowers with personalities
We all have different personalities and preferences. When shopping for flowers for yourself, it’s easy to choose the bouquet you love the most. However, when you are shopping for a loved one, you will need to think about their preferences rather than your own. Obviously you want to choose flowers that are fresh and look good. However, when it comes to choosing the types of flowers and the colour scheme of the arrangement, here are some things to keep in mind.
Firstly, consider the recipient’s favourite colour or colours. If you know that they favour a particular type of flower then you are also off to a great start. Think about the things they love, like their hobbies, as well as the message you want to send.
For somebody with a very relaxed personality and who enjoys the outdoors, you should look for a bunch of flowers that reflects this kind of simple beauty. You want the bouquet to resemble a meadow with various soft colours and a few bold accents. The vase or container should be something natural in appearance like a clay pot.
For those who are more extravagant, you should look for flowers with bright colours and stronger scents. This is the kind of bouquet that should immediately grab your attention as soon as you enter the room.
If the recipient is the kind of person who enjoys being different and is not in the slightest bit conventional or predictable, then an exotic bouquet will best suit their spontaneous personality. Look for bright colours, lots of texture, and plenty of contrast.
The exact opposite would be somebody more on the traditional side of the scale. In this case, the bouquet should be perfectly balanced in terms of colour, shape, and texture. You want a single main colour but you can use several shades of this colour for some variation. Add accents of different colours here and there to help the main colour stand out even more.
Finally, for those with more of a modern or contemporary style, there are some lovely linear arrangements that make use of elegant containers and bright flowers. These arrangements are simple yet highly effective. Think about something like a shallow container with a single orchid, some bamboo for foliage, and a few cherry blossoms around the base of the flower stems.
With all of these options available, it has never been easier to find the perfect fit for any lucky recipent. Remember, if you are ever unsure about the type of bouquet to buy, you can always ask your florist for some professional advice.
