Some people like to follow tradition when it comes to first dates and offer a bunch, or a single bloom, of flowers as a kind gesture. We love this tradition. We think it speaks a lot of a person to give a simple, beautiful gift from nature to express the beauty of a potential new relationship.
Flowers given to a first date show thought. They display generosity of spirit and a desire to please someone else, which is a great foundation for any partnership.
If you’re going on a first date and are thinking about bring flowers, you don’t have to choose anything elaborate or expensive to make an impression. You can find flowers to fit almost any budget in a grocery store, or at a florist, that will due just fine because they’ll provide a bit of beauty for your recipient to enjoy. If you have access to a garden, you can simply cut a few flowers and wrap them modestly, and still show your appreciation for the chance to spend time with someone.
Wherever you get your flowers, we think you should look for the following blooms. These flowers are great to give because they’re beautiful and they have a cheery nature, which will surely bring a bit of happiness to a first date.
Anemone are striking at first glance, which means they make a great first impression so consider giving these flowers if you want to be noticed for your attention to beauty right away. Amenone come in pink, purple, red, white, and variations of these colors. But, it’s the white flowers with purple borders, with the bloom’s signature dark and inky center, that we’re in love with.
Wildflowers are some of the most happy and carefree flowers you can find. So, offer these flowers on a first date to lighten the moment and show that you’re ready to have a great time. We especially love black eyed Susans in a wildflower bunch.
