Our Guide for Picking Up the Perfect Bouquet!
Choosing the right bouquet can often feel like a check off the to-do list. We go into the store, we pick the arrangement that appeals to us the most in our price range, and we leave. Flowers are an excellent way to add excitement to your home décor, special event, or to send a loving message to someone.
However, sometimes the occasion or person is extra special and we want to put a little more effort into personalizing the arrangement- even if that person is yourself! If you are someone who wants to put a little more thought into this process, Bloom & Bud is here to help! Look no further than the guide we’ve put together for you to accomplish the perfect bouquet in the comfort of your own home.
5 Steps to Accomplish the Perfect Bouquet
1) How would you describe the receiver? Recognizing the reason behind the purchase!
When imagining the perfect bouquet, it’s important to think of the characteristics of the person receiving the flowers. Is their style elegant and classic or edgy and bold? Having this in mind first will allow you to paint a picture in your head to act as guide for the rest of your decisions. In addition to this, it’s also important to consider the occasion you are giving it for. If it is for someone who is sick you might want to intentionally pick brighter flowers to cheer them up. If it is to honor someone who has passed, consider neutral colors like white so as to be respectful of the occasion. Recognizing the reason behind the purchases allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the characteristics that are required.
2) Look into which flowers are in season
Picking flowers that are in season are essential to giving a bouquet that is sure to last through time. It’s important to look into which flowers will be the freshest, but remember who you are buying your flowers for; if none of the seasonal flowers match the recipient, you can do without it! However, flowers come in so many colors and shapes, it’s almost assured you can find an appropriate seasonal one. In season flowers last longer than others and also have the boldest fragrances.
3) Consider the shape of the bouquet
Are you going with a more tailored and symmetrical design, or would a free form bouquet make more sense? Some elements to consider here are the colours you want in the bouquet; if you want bold contrasting colors be mindful of the shape of each individual flower when you put them next to each other. Another thing to consider is the height of the bouquet. Do you want a simple, plateau bouquet with bright flowers, or an undulating tall bouquet? If the bouquet will serve as a centerpiece, we suggest going with a bouquet with some height variance.
4) Take note of their maturity
It may be tempting to pick the flowers that are in full bloom, as they look the brightest and fullest. The whole point of flowers is to fill your space with vitality, right? Well, the best way to make sure that your bouquet does this for the longest amount of time is to choose flowers that aren’t fully bloomed. Usually, flowers that are just about to bloom are the best to sprinkle into the mix to ensure that they still have color to them and will complement the bloomed flowers you choose. This way, when the older flowers die, you can remove them from the bouquet and keep the younger flowers.
5) Purchase the flower from a shop of your trust
When it comes to deciding where you want to purchase your flowers from you would want to take into consideration the type of experience you want to have. Ordering a bouquet by Bloom & Bud is a lot more than buying a traditional bouquet. We take you through a journey, where you will discover the beauty and simplicity of creating your own flower composition. Apart from being a total mood booster, our bouquets will introduce you to a wonderful world of depth and meaning behind flowers!
