How to Make Valentine’s Day Perfect – The Do’s & Don’ts of Flowers

Posted on 21st January 2020

Valentine’s Day is one of those really special times of the year. Remembering your loved one is so important. Occasionally, people get so nervous about planning the special date that they forget important details about the flower bouquet.

For guidance on your bouquet, don’t hesitate to contact Katherine’s flower shop in Newcastle and Gosforth. Our flower stylists can guide you on fashion and modern tastes. Remember to follow a few important guidelines when shopping for flowers. These are relevant no matter what type of bouquet you purchase.

Scents Can Be Overwhelming

Call it scent etiquette, if you like. The general idea is to keep the scent light, unless it’s a favourite of your loved one. Some people will intentionally purchase heavily scented peonies, roses or lilies. But others prefer something lighter.

Don’t forget about the mixing and matching of scents. Ask your florist in Newcastle to help you downplay scents that your loved one may not care for. Your florist should have a good selection of alternative fillers, like greenery, if there is an unwanted scent in the bouquet.

Consider the Card Carefully

For most people, the card is as precious as the bouquet. Make sure that you write something thoughtful and from the heart. Don’t be afraid to take your time to write your note!

Feel Free to Ask for a Bespoke Bouquet

Not quite found what you’re looking for? Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want – Katherine’s Florists are famous for their ability to create stunning and beautiful  bespoke bouquets on a daily basis.

Consider Flower Alternatives

If the scent of flowers in general is just too strong, consider a bouquet of greenery or succulents. Many florists have plenty of these options. Things like eucalyptus, fern, ornamental kale or elephant ear have their own charm.

Order on Time

You will want to order about a month early to be on the safe side. Remember to consider delivery, special instructions and coordination with other deliveries when you order. Don’t try to tag special instructions on at the last minute.

Simple Flowers Can Be Just as Lovely

If going over the top isn’t your thing, you can stick with simple daisies or carnations. The thought is just as wonderful, and you can put the same amount of effort into the card for a simple bouquet.

These are great for lighter-smelling bouquets or for a date you haven’t been with as long. It’s up to you to choose a flower your date will love, so if their tastes run simpler, then let it be!
