Matching Flowers to Personalities
With the hundreds of sizes, shapes and colors flowers come in, floral arrangements are one of the easiest gifts to customize. When it comes to gift giving, carefully selecting the flower varieties and colors you send will result in thoughtful, customized gifts people appreciate and like to receive.
The first step is to consider the preferences of the person who is receiving the gift. For instance:
- What colors do he like?
- Does she have any favorite flowers?
- What are his hobbies?
- What kind of message do you want to convey?
Here are examples of arrangements you or a friend might like:
People who are casual, earthy and prefer the outdoors. Flowering or green plants, meadow flowers and woodsy accents suit this personality best.
People who are generous, spontaneous and extravagant. Bouquets of soft colors, light fragrances and accents of lace or ribbon might suit romantics.
Individuals who seek personal betterment and are attracted to the unconventional – from new age to the arts. Exotic flowers and unusual combinations of shape, color and texture will match their creativity and artistic bent.
People who are trustworthy, family oriented and prefer classic styles. They appreciate lush arrangements with a great variety of flowers.
Individuals who are cutting-edge trendsetters and enjoy living in the moment. Vogue styles such as monochromatic bouquets or arrangements with a few, large vibrant flowers are favorites.
Finally, consult with your florist, who can help you create just the right gift, as well as explain the assortment of possibilities available.
