Saying I Love You With Flowers

Flowers have been used for many centuries to send across certain messages. These can be of sympathy, love and even friendship.

Moving forward with technology and modernisation within societies has meant that many people now believe that flowers are an old fashioned gesture which should be cast out. However, in reality, flowers always have, are and will always remain to be an emotion filled gesture which will make the sender and the recipient feel special and good.

There are many occasions during which people send flowers. These can vary from anniversaries to birthdays. Nevertheless, what’s to say that we cannot send them without reason? Many people send flowers without having a reason to send them. They are a kind gesture by which someone can see that you have been thinking about them, or that you care and love them.

Flowers can be used to say I love you to a friend, a loved one such as a girlfriend/boyfriend, husband/wife and even family members such as parents or siblings.

Saying I love you to a person according to the type of love or relationship that you have can be portrayed via flowers. The art is to know which flowers portray which message.

Portraying friendship and the love you have for a friend can be done via purchasing and sending specific flowers. These include yellow roses, which show love, but not that compared to a red rose. Similarly, pink roses also show a less intense form of love than a red rose, making it perfect for friends. In the language of flowers, the Iris flowers portray a message indicating that the friendship is highly valued. The Ivy is the symbol of fidelity and warmth.

These flowers can also be sent to family members, since they show the feeling of love, but not a kind of love that would be portrayed by a red rose. If you think that yellow and pink roses are still a little too intense for a family member, you can choose to have a bouquet made which contains other subtle flowers. By adding a few pink or yellow roses, with a few Iris flowers can still portray the message of affection without it coming off too strong.

Saying I love you to a spouse, partner or loved one can be done in the perfect way by sending roses. The classic red rose is a strong symbol of love and affection. Sending a dozen long stemmed roses has been a common gift to a loved one. Sending a loved one red roses, especially when they least expect them, will leave them surprised and very delighted.

Many people believe that flowers are only suitable for women. This sexist idea has been disproven a long time ago and it has been shown that men respond positively to receiving flowers just as much as women do. The thing you need to consider is the type of bouquet that you send them. For a male member, using more masculine flowers will be most appropriate. A bouquet with more greenery and exotic plants make a more masculine gift, making it perfect for men, whereas women respond more to colours and fragrances.

Florists offer additional services such as message cards, stuffed I love you toys or chocolates, which also send across a message of love and make nice additional gifts.

Flowers are the perfect way to say I love you to anyone. The art is knowing which flowers portray the message you want to send. If you are unsure, a florist will be more than happy to help –that’s what they are there for!
