How to... Choose Flowers for a Woman

Flowers are a wonderful way to express your feelings, but make sure you're saying the right thing. There are flowers that are appropriate for different occasions in life. Here are some guidelines on how to choose flowers to send to a woman.

  • Consider whether you want to send a single flower, a bouquet or an entire flowering plant. Consider what the gift is for. For example, a housewarming present should have more permanence, like a plant. A single rose might be a better gift for a single date.
  • Timing is everything. If your flowers are for a wedding or a dinner party, send them ahead of time so that they can be displayed at the event.
  • Check the meaning of your flowers if you want them to say something particular. Red tulips are a declaration of love, ivy symbolizes fidelity and marriage, and a single rose symbolizes simplicity. Do some research.
  • Enclose a note, small token or memento to better convey your sentiments.
  • Send appropriate arrangements to your recipient. Consider the woman's demeanor and match that in your arrangement. A simple, calm person will appreciate a single rose more than an extravagant, overwhelming bouquet.
