When it comes to sending flowers, you have literally millions of options for a flower bouquet. Each customized floral bouquet can be crafted to fit the personality of the recipient and the occasion. Primary factors to consider when putting your arrangement together are size, shape, aroma, and color. Another important factor to think about is how each flower arranges with its neighbor. Personal preference is extremely subjective and is very dependent on our life experiences and individual tastes. This involves a certain level of probing into the likes and dislikes of your recipient. Those that go the extra step, like talking to friends or loved ones to get the inside scoop on a favorite flower, are most certainly rewarded when it comes time to special days such as Mother’s Day.
Perhaps the most important deciding factor that goes into determining the type of arrangement you would like to create is the occasion. Different occasions have different social and cultural meanings, and it should be no surprise that cultures have associated different flowers with those meanings. Let’s focus on these different occasions and discover the perfect floral arrangement to go with them.
A Flower for Every Occasion
This occasion is certainly customized to the individual. When determining the best bouquet, we recommend finding out favorite flowers from friends and family (if not already known). Additionally, knowing whether the birthday boy or girl likes scented flowers is important. Some people are just not fans of scented varieties and a scented bouquet could be a quick turnoff.

These occasions are certainly not set dates that you can prep for, and by the time you recognize you’re going to need a forgiveness bouquet, the event has most certainly occurred. Most of us have experienced the day with our significant other where we have made a mistake or forgot something we shouldn’t have. Regardless of the reason, we have made it to the dog house somehow. A tried and true way to escape is to prepare a sincere apology and give a gift of flowers as a token of penitence.
Recommendation: The Luxe Kiss Me Cupid bouquet, consisting of 36 long stem red roses, are your best bet to send to your significant other. Just make sure not to downplay the importance of that sincere apology (it is equally if not more important).
