When should I give her a bouquet? 

Is it still cool to offer girls/women flowers on a first date?

Are flowers the answer when she’s upset?

We know, flowers are tricky. Plus, if you really want to impress her and show up with a bouquet (not just one flower strand), how do you go about it? Do you leave it to the florist?

While there are occasions when it’s best to ask help from a professional, it’s also helpful to understand the basics of a well-designed bouquet. After all, you never know when these skills may get you out of a tough spot.

Therefore, today we are going to show you the top three tips you need to get the perfect flower bouquet for your partner or date.

1.Keep it Simple

Whether you’re arranging roses or making a bouquet of seasonal flowers, the best rule is simplicity. Play with a few colors and don’t go for a huge bouquet – a few strands and some leafy things should be enough. 

If you got too big, your date may feel overwhelmed or you may come off as trying too hard. Also, if you choose roses, best keep it to a single strand and don’t choose red.

Overall, it’s best to find something in season, not too expensive, and if they have a nice fragrance, that’s great. Of course, if you know what she likes from previous chats, then go with that type of flower (it shows you pay attention).

2.Choose Unpretentious Flowers

Whether you’re at the very early stages of dating or you’ve been together for ages, it’s best to go with flowers that don’t transmit any grand gestures and feelings (unless you’re celebrating an important anniversary or event).

Unpretentious flowers like daisies, tulips, or gerbera are refreshing, affordable, and make you look sweet and caring. Plus, they don’t suggest a heavy emotional load, which may be off putting during a first date.

3.Don’t Make it Too Fancy

Professional florists have a tendency to make bouquets look, well, professional. This usually means a lot of fancy wrappings, decorations, and lots of additional plants that look good but will make everything a bit too big and fancy.

Instead, if you do go with a professional, ask them to keep the wrapping at a basic level. A nice wrapping paper and maybe a tiny ribbon, and that’s it.

On the other hand, if you make the bouquet yourself, follow the same principle – simple & basic is the best. It doesn’t matter if the end result looks a bit clumsy, she will appreciate the effort.

When Is It OK to Give a Bouquet?

Now that you know how to put together a nice flower bouquet, you should also know when to offer it (outside of those occasions when it’s customary).

The first date is a nice occasion for flowers, as long as you keep it simple and casual. Also, if you plan on having an active date (going dancing or playing a game), flowers may be difficult to carry.

Anyways, with or without flowers, it’s important to keep things interesting and get to know each other. 

If you are already a couple, flowers are a nice gesture from time to time (not when you’re trying to get out of a fight or when you’ve done something that might upset her). Small gifts (flowers included) show affection and respect, which is why it’s a good idea to cultivate this habit.
