Dating provides endless opportunities to give flowers. Throughout the course of a relationship, you can offer flowers for a first meeting, an anniversary, a birthday, and dozens of other occasions.
If you’re dating someone and want to give gorgeous flowers to brighten a day, a home, or a special moment, consider the following:
For a First Date
You can set a tone of generosity on a first date by giving flowers. When you give flowers on a first date, you don’t need to focus on a particular flower or color meaning if you don’t want to. Simply choose something that speaks of your sentiments at the time, such as joy, sincerity, or gratitude. Keep things light or dive right into your deepest thoughts. It’s up to you how you use flowers to express your thoughts on a first date, because everyone’s circumstance will be different.
It is fun to choose flowers like cheery sunflowers or colorful anemone, though. White roses can signify innocence and forsythia can show excitement.

After the First Date
When you give flowers after the first date, consider keeping it simple and going with blooms that offer a sincere “thank you” or a genuine “I enjoy your company.” Some flowers to express these thoughts include the beautiful calla lily and elegant lilac (opt for purple if you want to display your first sensations of love).
If you’re dating on Valentines Day, there are many floral options that would make a great gift. Depending on how long you’ve been together, and the strength of your feelings, you could choose pink camellias to show you’ve been waiting to connect deeply, red carnations to offer your heart, or tulips to say “you’re an incredible lover.”
In addition to these occasions, you can send flowers while dating for a birthday (consider a stunning orchid), anniversary (maybe a forget-me-not), or no reason at all (possibly an aster, which offers the code of love).
