Have you ever wondered why flowers since time immemorial still make the world’s best gift today? What is it about flowers that make people want to constantly associate themselves with?
The intrinsic nature of flowers – the fact that flowers are not everlasting; they wither and die, reminds us that life is such and is worth cherishing every moment of it especially those special ones. Nothing last forever in this world except time. We live only once in this life, for every good moment that comes by, we are compelled to celebrate it. It is in our innate nature to want to do so. Simply because we are by nature somehow pre-programmed to subconsciously know that special moments are unique and they will not occur exactly the same way again. To make these special moments last, we celebrate them so that they own a place in our memories for years to come.
There is another draw to flowers that other gifts don’t come close to match. Humans reconcile flowers to be part of this world of evolution. The fact that when we look at flowers, the colour, the bloom and their fragileness, our inner sanctum of our being triggers that unexplained sense of joy, delight and hope. Even at times of sorrow and hurt, flowers are nature’s way of reminding us that life is precious, life is beautiful and we should treasure it and make the best of it. The beautiful blossoms of flowers give us a sense of wonder, a sense of hope, telling us there will always be sunshine after the rain and that exciting times await us.
Flowers ignites our sense of love and passion. It is precisely the nature of flowers, that women are drawn to. The enchanting beauty, colours and smell of flowers trigger a string of emotions, the collective joy, love, care and hope flowers represents. They serve as a voice to conveying our hearts’ desire and feelings in ways words cant. If a picture tells a thousand words, flowers tell a million.

There is already a International Forgiveness Day in August, founded by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance, but the Global Forgiveness Day on 7th July was founded by CECA (Christian Embassy of Christ’s Ambassadors), though really both days have essentially the same message; to forgive!
In honor of countless benefits of forgiveness, people all over the world united to celebrate Global Forgiveness Day annually on 7th of July.

Furthermore, at a time of loss, recipients rank flowers and sympathy cards as the most meaningful of gifts. Those surveyed believe fresh flowers are a critical component of funerals, providing a necessary diversion, something to talk about, and a bright environment at a sombre time.
Asked to identify gifts and memorials that helped a great deal with grief, a majority of surveyed respondents named flowers. Respondents also agreed strongly that looking at the cards to see who sent funeral wreaths and condolences flowers is a comfort.

Flowers can reflect many religious beliefs, including eternal life and rebirth. Your floral consultant is well aware of the differences between faiths and will assist you in this regard.
There is a wide variety of floral tributes for every budget. Among them: table arrangements; standing arrangements; sprays; casket drapes; flower beds; wreaths; and other designs which reflect a more personal aspect of the deceased, such as favoured flowers, colours, and styles.

In Singapore, funeral flowers or condolences flowers are normally delivered to the wakes (normally held at residences or funeral houses or parlours). Wakes (a vigil held by the immediate family members of the deceased) can be held within a day to about 5 days depending on the wishes and practices of the family. After the vigil, the casket is then transported to the crematorium. Funeral flowers can be sent to any race or religion (except to the Muslim community) as they are universally accepted. In Singapore, it is not a practice to send flowers to the homes after the funeral, hence it is best to send during the wake before the funeral is over.

5 Simple Steps To Remember When You Want To Tell A Girl That You Like Her. – Guide For First Timers Giving Flowers
Most Asian guys are rather ‘shy’ when it comes to trying to verbalize their interest to a girl. Fortunately, God gave us this thing called flowers to help them ‘express’ their sentiments towards the girl in a non-verbal manner. Even for those who are verbally more expressive, an accompaniment of a bouquet makes the task even more romantic.
Flowers have been the universal language of love since time in memorial and they will remain so for many years to come.
However, when it comes to flowers, guys are generally clueless. In a very Singaporean way of saying – guys can be rather ‘sotong’ when it comes to giving flowers to a girl. The truth is, guys are just not into flowers as much as they are into electronic gadgets. So, it does make a guy stands out if he knows a thing or two about flowers and it does goes a long way to impressing her with the right choice of bouquet of flowers.
The good news is that it doesn’t take a lot of money nor any scientific floral knowledge to pick the right arrangement of flowers. Here are 5 simple pointers to remember when trying to buy flowers for a girl.
Step 1: Learn Something About The Girl
The first thing you need to do is to learn more about the girl. The simplest of method is to observe what colour she likes. You can do this by observing what colour of dress she often wears. What colour bag, phone, shoes, purse, notebook and sometimes even the colour she paints her toe or finger nails with. Chances are the answers are all around. And obviously a major plus, if you know what kind of flowers she likes!
Step 2: When Is The Best Time To Give Her Flowers?
There is no one best time to give flowers. There is no better time to give her flowers than now if you have a strong desire to tell her that you like her. Not everyone is impulsive. And there are many opportunities for you to give flowers. Consider some occasions that may help your giving of flowers more timely, appropriate and more gentlemanly.
- Her Birthday – This is the most common and most casual occasion to give flowers
- Get Well -An opportunity to show that you care for her and wish her a speedy recovery.
- Apology – An occasion which you want to say sorry for the things you have done wrong or upset her (not that you intentionally planned)
- Congratulate her on her promotion or achievement or graduation – celebrate with her and show that you are proud of her achievement
- Special Date – your third date or an anniversary or a significant day to mark an event that both of you share.
- Encouragement – an occasion to remind her you have her in your thoughts, supporting her in times of distress or anxiety
- Valentine’s Day – this is by far the best time to give flowers and to tell her you like her.
Step 3: Choosing The Right Flowers
There is no need to perform an encyclopaedic search into the meaning of flowers. If you are attempting to give her flowers for the first time, give her favourite flowers. If you don’t know her favourite flower, give her flowers with her favourite colour.
Roses with their abundance heritage and history have been long a symbol of love and romance. They convey messages of love without words. Although each colour of rose offers a distinct meaning but it not uncommon to give her a rose bouquet of her favourite colour. And thankfully, roses do come in quite a variety of colours.
Step 4: What Do You Want To Say?
If you are personally giving her flowers, tell her what the flowers are for when you are handing the bouquet to her. An example: ‘Happy birthday, hope you like the flowers’. Or ‘I just want to tell you how much I enjoyed getting to know you..”
If you choose to send flowers to her which most guys would rather do especially on their first foray into giving flowers. A gift or message card would be appropriate to accompany it with the bouquet.
How do you want to say also much depends on what do you want to say. Not such a good idea to present to her a long love letter/poetry (pouring out your emotions) particular if is your first bouquet to her. A more casual approach would leave you more room to observe her reaction towards your gift. Keep your message short and sweet. Avoid anything generic or cheesy and make it sincere. Even a few well-chosen words will go farther than some over-quoted sonnet. Some examples would be:
- ‘It is wonderful getting to know you. I hope there are more wonderful opportunities to meet you again’
- An angel once asked why I care for you so much. I told her I care for you so much because … I can’t find a reason not to.
- There’s no special reason for these flowers; I just want to steal a single moment of your busy life and hope I can make you smile when I say: I Miss You.
- I admit I’ll never be the perfect one. I’ll never always be there. I may fail to make you smile at times, but there is one thing I could do. I could be the person I am, for you.
- What makes some people more special than others? It’s not just the happiness you feel when you meet them, but the anguish you feel when you miss them.
- Certain people touch your heart in a way that you just can’t stop thinking about them; that is the kind of person you are; so far, yet so near, so simple, yet so desirable.
- You can’t see the sun when it rains, but you know it’s there. I hope we can both be like the sun, who don’t always see each other, but who are always there for each other.
- They say, as long as at least one person cares for you, life isn’t a waste. So when things go terribly wrong and you feel like giving up, please remember you still have me.
- Life is full of beautiful things: soft sunsets, colourful rainbows, delicate blossoms, love & laughter, quiet moments, and a wonderful someone, like you.
- My life was a jigsaw puzzle until you came along and filled in the missing pieces.
- A time may come when I can’t smile anymore; but don’t worry about me, I know what to do. I’ll just close my eyes and think of you. No one else could make me smile, the way you do.
- A date is a mere formality I need to complete before I can tell you what you really mean to me.
- It’s difficult to imagine now, hard to believe for a minute, that I once led a life, that didn’t have you in it.
- Between a million yesterdays and a million tomorrows, there’s only one today. And I would never let it pass without telling you – I’m thinking of you.
Step 5: How Do You Give Her Flowers?
If this is your first date, a single stalk of rose is appropriate. It shows that you are the romantic kind without going overboard. A single stalk of her favourite colour rose can’t go wrong else, red or pink rose is as good.
If rose doesn’t do it for you, a beautiful daisy (also known as gerbera) is as good especially for a casual date…let’s say a picnic or a walk in the park, by the beach, etc.. Heck, being spontaneous and simply handing her any type of single flower is perfect on a date when you’re out and about. It’s easy for her to hold (compared to a bouquet). You’ll definitely score brownie points for being thoughtful.
You’ll want to bring her flowers if you have met in person or know her to a certain extent…and if you are picking her up at her home. Now here’s the ‘universal’ dating rule: Save the bouquet for when you have had at least 3 to 4 dates. A bouquet holds some meaning for a woman. She knows that they cost a fair bit (If you buy the right kind) and a whole bouquet which generally says “I really like you”. So save that for when you can legitimately say that…and that would be after you’ve had a few dates and have gotten to know her much better.
Do remember to the dating rule that screams: “Women love flowers…you don’t have to be in love with a woman to give them to her…Just give them to her every now and then (on special dates or special occasions) to remind her that you are thinking of her. Relax. Flowers don’t have to mean commitment. Women know when an arrangement simply means that you care. Don’t be afraid to give flowers because flowers make a women feels good and happy like no other gift.
A final tip, if you really like her and feel cumbersome (or embarrassed) to carry a bouquet around to meet her for a date, another good time to give her flowers is have the flowers delivered to her office (and see how much attention you’ll get because of the attention she got.) or her home and have a card that reads something like “I really enjoyed spending time with you…You’re more beautiful than these flowers”.
Remember guys, there is no one perfect formulae that will guarantee to win the girl’s heart. That’s what make life more exciting. However, with some knowledge about giving flowers, you are now this much more successful than before. Ultimately, it is also about the journey to wooing your desired girl. Be Spontaneous. Be light-hearted. And most of all, be a gentleman.
The sight, aroma and touch of a bouquet of flowers melts a ladies’ heart. Men know this and that is why they will give their favorite lady a lovely arrangement of flowers during courtship days. The blend of happy colours and sysmatrical shapes of the blooms represents fresh new life of spring and new hope. A thoughtful bouquet enhances the individual blooms when set against fillers and complementary leaves. It is a sampling of creation at its best. It conveys the message that the lady recipient is lovely, is worthy and is loved.
When a lady is loved for who she is during courtship days, surely she is even more appreciated after marriage. She has to adjust to a new home and the responsibilities that come with managing a household. When babies arrive, these are a totally awesome and new experience to take care of. A lady gives of her time, her heart and her soul in raising children. She has to do all this even while continuing to nurture a relationship with her husband.
So husbands can do their part by showering the love of their life with words of kindness, thoughtful deeds, loving caresses and massages, the gift of creatively arranged bouquet of flowers. Schedule in time to go on a date to tell her how amazing she is, how much you grow deeper in your love for her. Keep the flames burning. There is no reason why romance can’t continue after the wedding and arrival of babies.

Graduation is a momentous occasion. A moment to be proud of, a moment to mark the success of one’s journey in life.Celebrate and add colour and joy to this time and capture this special occasion with flowers. We thank this lovely brother and sister pair for making their graduation bouquet from us
For as long as anyone can remember, flowers have been given as a gift for all sorts of different occasions. Valentine’s Day is perhaps the day where flowers get the most play, with rose bouquets in particularly high demand, nut they truly are the perfect gift for any occasion. Roses are a perfect example of how flowers can be used to convey a specific motion or feeling. Red roses are all about love and passion, while yellow roses are often used to convey friendship and feelings of gratitude. There truly is a rose for all occasions, but that can also be said for any flower.
When you visit a florist, you can’t help but smile as you catch sight of the flowers on display and smell the delightful scents that each give off. It’s not surprising that you feel this way, as research has shown that flowers have a way of making people feel happy, even when they are feeling at their very lowest point. It is perhaps because of those feelings that flowers have become commonly used during funerals. Condolences flowers are a very common gift, and while their color and beauty may seem at odds with the sadness of the event, it is also the traits that they bring that can make the day a little brighter for all involved.
If you are trying to think of a gift that will let someone know that you are thinking about them, flower delivery is perhaps the best way to do so. While the flowers themselves are often enough to get the recipients heart racing, the fact that you can attach a card with a personal message makes it all the more special. Even though the flowers were delivered by someone from the store you purchased them at, the recipient is often left feeling as though it was you who handed them over personally.
Flowers are a great way to fill a space and make people feel at home in their new house. This is especially true if the new home does not yet have all the furnishing and accessories in place. A bare room can take on a whole new vibrancy once colorful flowers have been added into the mix. These types of flower gifts convey the blooming of a new life in a new place, which is also why flowers ate a great gift for Mother’s who have just given birth.
The gift of flowers in one that bring almost instantaneous joy to the person receiving them. We have all become so caught up in the fast paced world that we live in that we often forget to take a moment to stop and look at the beautiful things nature provides. Simply looking and smelling flowers from a Singapore florist can take you out of that hectic schedule and back to nature, even if only for a few moments. That is a feeling you can’t really get anywhere else, and is just one of the reasons why flowers make a great gift.
