Determine the occasion

  • Important events in life such as Birthdays, Graduation day, New child's birth, Wedding day, or any Anniversaries
  • No special reasons, just want to say "thank you", or "I'm sorry", or just "thinking of you", etc.

You should choose pink blooms that will show how much you care. For example, pink roses express gratitude, appreciation and admiration. Pink carnation, a symbol of maternal love, is a perfect choice for Mom.

Find out her favourite flowers or colors

The best thing is to find out her favourist flowers or al least her colors. If she adores lilies, you had better send her lilies in spite of the occasion and the relationship. That makes a girl surprised and be touched because you remembered her favorite kind.

Choose the flower shop 

The best choice for high quality and wide selection of flowers is visiting florist's shop. You can ask the florists to deliver flowers. It's more of an occasion to receive a delivery of flowers, especially in a public setting such as her office.
