There are many different things you can say with flowers, but there are also several factors that determine what message the flowers you send are saying. If you’re not careful, you can actually send a very different message than you mean to! Here are the things you need to keep in mind when you send flowers.
How many are you sending? A dozen red roses shows more of a commitment than a single red rose.
How high-quality are your flowers? Sending her flowers from a florist says you value her. Giving her a $5 bouquet from the supermarket either says you’re cheap or that you waited until the last minute.
What flowers are you sending? This is the big one! If you want to say “I love you,” roses are obviously the go-to flower. Daisies, on the other hand, are much more of a friendship flower. Here are some flowers and what you can say with them?
