How to communicate without having to talk

Let’s be honest here, most guys are quite shy when it comes to expressing their feelings. This is what makes sending flowers one of the best and easiest ways to tell your someone special how much you care. Fresh blooms show you care, and are a way to communicate that works like a charm! But this can be tricky too, confusing initially.

What kind of flower to choose? Well, the first thing that can help is, knowing the favorite color. Picking a flower with the favorite color can do the trick, but if you don’t know that, here’s a guide to help you pick a color! While roses are the classic flower to send someone, if you send the wrong color, it might end up sending some mixed signals. After all, different colors have different meanings. Here are a few colors with their meanings that can help you choose.

Red - Red is the ultimate symbol of love, if you trying to woo your boo! Red roses are super romantic.

Pink - The color pink symbolizes admiration, joy, and happiness and is a good option if you want to be careful! Moreover, a little pink can spread some joy.

Yellow - Yellow is considered as a symbol of friendship. Yellow roses are a great option if you want to cheer up your BFF! However, be careful because yellow roses can be sending some mixed signals.

White - White roses are symbolic of purity. This is the reason why they are used in weddings, funerals, and other religious ceremonies. You can send a white rose to send a ‘just friends’ signal!

And if still in doubt, go with your gut: you’ll know which flowers remind you of the recipient when you see them.

Don’t be afraid to make it personal!

You should know about the person you are sending flowers to. How close are you? What kind of things do they like? Classic romantic gestures, small and ordinary things or are they trendy? The more you personalize their flowers, the greater impact it will create. Also, by opting for the fastest flower delivery service, you can ensure that your gift of love reaches them on time.

5 Simplest Messages To Get Her Attention When Sending Flowers

~Flora Macaroni~Comment

Does one need a special occasion to make his/her significant other feel worthy of their love?

Well, not really! Small lovely gestures without any specific occasion can do a lot of good when it comes to relationships or loving friendships. These small gestures can range from posting your partner cute little love letters when he/she lives away or preparing a romantic brunch on a Sunday afternoon.

When it comes to flowers, girls usually love it when they receive unexpected tulips or roses on a stressful office day or after a heavy workout session. A surprise delivery of flowers in a box can pep up anyone’s grumpy mood and if it’s about sending flowers to her then there is no hard and fast rule.

While sending flowers you can add simple messages using poetry or quotes by a cherished poet to make the surprise even more interesting for your loved one. I know that sending a short note comprising of someone else’s poetic lines might sound as if it’s just an easy way to send a gift and be over with it. But, selecting sweet and loving messages to send with the flowers can be a tough task too.

One doesn’t simply send a love quote or a poem for her without putting some thought into it. When sending such love notes, especially with flowers in a box or a bouquet, you must make the right choice. To generate some romantic inspiration in you, listed down below are five simplest messages to grab her attention when sending flowers:

1) If you are sending her a bouquet to confess your love for the very first time then sending a quote from a famous romance novel can work wonders. Here’s a revered quote from the book The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

“I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you”.

2) Sometimes cheesiness also works wonders if it’s the right time. When sending her flowers in a box, you can add to it love poems or famous lines by the renowned poet

Pablo Neruda.

“I want

To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees” –

Pablo Neruda, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair

3) Or you can revive the classic Victorian love in your message by quoting Alfred Lord

Tennyson- “If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever”.

4) “The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but

must be felt with the heart”- Helen Keller.

5) Perhaps a romantic song by a pop artist could also work, “When I see your face,

there’s not a thing that I would change. ‘Cause you’re amazing just the way you

are.”- Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars

So be it a sixteenth century sonnet written by Shakespeare or a love poem composed by you,

what matters is how that moment is made special for your loved one, when she opens up the

flowers in a box sent by you.

3 reasons to consider sending flowers in a box

Flowers have always been the choice of gift, be it a birthday, Valentine’s Day or any such occasion. They convey a very special meaning, unlike any other gift. We believe there is no better way to celebrate the precious moments of life than by sending a bunch of beautiful flowers to your loved one. This act of sending flowers is perceived as caring and thoughtful. Over the years, the ways of sending flowers have constantly changed.

In today’s era, Boxes are the new Bouquets. Let’s take a look at three reasons as to why you should consider adapting to this change!

Trend setting and evolution is a part of life.

The trends in flower delivery are changing drastically. Over the years, there has been a shift from the conventional handheld bouquets to woven baskets to the present trend of luxe boxes in pretty monochromatic, pastel and muted tones. The presentation and style of sending flowers in a box is quite unique!

This new trend of sending flowers in a box, popularly known as ‘bloom box’ not only exudes elegance and class but is an example of smart evolution. The boxes are meticulously engineered to keep the flowers fresh until they are delivered to the recipient.

With the emerging new techniques, these flowers are exposed to certain oils that can leave them fresh, radiating their natural beauty for longer periods than usual. Some can even last up to a year. If you follow the instructions! See, new trends are not that bad after all, are they?

The overall look of these boxes is more upbeat than the traditionally styled arrangements. They are in vogue among many fashion and beauty influencers, actresses and celebrities worldwide. Still wondering if you should try this new trend?

Adding a personal touch.

The best part about this new trend is that you get to choose the design by customizing your bloom box. Unlike bouquets, that are mostly nonetheless the same, with boxes, you can design your own stylish ornate flower box. You can even add initials of the loved one, or even a whole message. You can bring your ideals of an exquisitely picturesque arrangement and turn them into a reality! Yes, you can even design the flower arrangements!

So, if you choose to send flowers in a box, the flowers will be packaged in your choice of color and design and shape (yes, you can also decide if you want a square box or a hexagonal box!).

It’s not just flowers; it’s an experience.

Every bloom box arrangement is sincerely and carefully handcrafted by floral design specialists. Inspired by class and simplicity, it is their belief that flowers in a box are more than just sending flowers. The keepsake handcrafted boxes with personalized labels and perfect hand picked flowers arranged with delicacy are a luxury gift. They speak of class.

Similarly, sending a bloom box can be seen as a way of pampering your loved one with elaborate and unequivocally gorgeous floral color options. Every box is crafted to perfection and customized to your unique ideas bringing to fruition an exquisite floral delight! This whole experience can leave both you, and the receiver, extremely mesmerized.

A Mother's Day Tradition with a Beautiful Twist!

~Flora Macaroni~1 Comment

For centuries people have given the gift of flowers to lovers, mothers, and friends alike. But do you know where this custom comes from? During the Victorian age, it became improper to declare love for someone in a public forum, it was even potentially inappropriate to declare your affections for relatives unless under the correct circumstances. Flower giving became a modest way in declaring your adoration and has followed society throughout the centuries. Today, flowers are still a common and beautiful gift to present to the person you care about most.

With Mother’s Day coming up on May 14th, many of us who are responsible for buying gifts are starting to feel the squeeze. As consumers you’re bombarded nearly every single day for the next three weeks with advertisements, gift idea lists, and being told what your mother would actually like. We know you’re not about to ask her what she wants for Mother’s Day, so we’re here to help with a simple gift unlike anything else available in Phoenix: Stick with the age-old tradition of flowers, but with a memorable twist.
