Gesture of Sending Flowers

The softness of petals, the richness of each bloom’s colour, and the dynamism of a blossomed bud undeniably send messages of good intention, adoration, and appreciation. No wonder flowers are generally accepted to have a positive influence on people. The gesture of sending or giving flowers is now a standard way of expressing our emotions of love, sincerity, and sympathy.

Flower presents can be given for almost all occasions, be it a happy event or a sorrowful period. Flowers can be given to express romantic love and platonic love. It can also be given to extend your sympathy and condolences for those who lost a loved one. Flowers also make a great present for those who have just brought a new life into the world.

Flowers can also be used for ornamental purposes and you can see blooms arranged in boxes or vases and displayed in hospitals, business offices, shops and restaurants. It seems that the language of flowers knows no bounds.

Perhaps it is indeed true that flowers make people feel good. It would not be used to express thoughts and feelings if it sends the wrong signals and make people feel miserable. Confirming the theory that flowers make people happy is the study done by Dutch researchers from Wageningen University in 2009. Flowers were found to create a pleasant atmosphere and promote a positive ambience. The experiment involved participants who were grouped into four and classified into four rooms. All rooms are identical except for the flower decors. The participants were then asked to take a photo evaluation test. After a week, the same groups of participants were asked to come back and do a memory test. In depth interview of randomly selected subjects was also done.

The result of the experiment shows that people in the room with flowers tend to be warmer and more cheerful than those who are in the room without flowers. People in the room with flowers appeared to be less tensed and less shy, and they look more at ease and comfortable in the room with flowers compared to the people in the room without.

The study shows that the sight of flowers can influence one’s perception and mood. What more when flowers are given by a special someone, right?

So when you want to express your love, show your admiration, or maybe just to acknowledge someone’s delightful presence, go ahead and send her flowers.

Why Send Flowers

Just by sending something to someone already means that you are thinking about that person. So whether you give a card, a balloon, a nice present, or a bunch of flowers, it already conveys the idea that the person is important for you to remember and for you to want to make her smile. But compared to other presents, flowers have that special appeal to it. Maybe because of its natural charm or maybe because of the language it speaks.

There are thousands of flower varieties available and each one and each colour is believed to have a special message that it wants to convey. Through flowers, one can express his/her thoughts and feelings in the manner he/she is more comfortable with. Whether one wants to subtly express love or give a hint of admiration or someone wants to passionately express devotion and propose a lifetime of commitment, flowers can easily send the message across.

When one is too shy to speak about love, or is too busy to personally send a message, or maybe too far to give a joyous or a sympathetic hug, flowers can do the work for them. It is in the natural charisma of flowers that recipients can easily feel and understand the message of the giver. Mother Nature is indeed one clever lady that she has provided us with everything that we need to survive and thrive and so much more.

Tips When Sending Flowers

Now, from the list you can choose one that suits the recipient best. How do you that? Well, aside from identifying the recipient’s favourite flower, you can base your flower choice from the recipient’s favorite colour, or favorite fragrance.
If you wish to give a deeper meaning to your flower present, give one that is representative of your true feelings. Remember that the flower gift gesture is sweeter when you do it spontaneously. So don’t hesitate to send your lady some fresh flowers whenever you can. The surprise flowers signify that you are thinking of her and that you do not forget.

When selecting a flower to give, take your time and pick the one that suits the recipient best. Do not hesitate to ask the florist about the language a certain flower type communicates. Ask about colour meanings and the right flower species combination.
You can select an arrangement that contains just one flower variety and mix it with some lush foliage. you can also go monochromatic and select different flowers but of the same colour range. You can go for texture too and ask the help of the florist in mixing and matching flower varieties.

When giving flowers, do not be afraid to try something new and give something that is unique. There are many flower varieties aside from the rose and even the rose flower itself has different kinds. You will surely enjoy sending a bouquet that is different from what every man sends to his loved one.

Women love flowers. They see themselves in it. So when you give one, it will surely be well-received. And for those who are hesitant to give flowers as gift for fear of the recipient interpreting the gesture as a promise of commitment, relax. The women of today are wise enough to know that flowers symbolise appreciation and flower gifts do not necessarily mean commitment.
