THE EASY GUIDE TO BUYING FLOWERS Saying I love you with roses is much easier with Carriage By bazaar staff

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whether you have been together with your sweetheart for months or for years, it’s always a wonderful opportunity to show how much you care. And before you start rolling your eyes at the capitalist-created day of love, rethink it in a different way. It’s a great way to signal how much you care by buying a beautiful bouquet of flowers. With today’s hectic lifestyles it might be easy to forget but modern life has also given us convenience in the form of technology. Just use Carriage to order the perfect floral arrangement. But with more than 70 flower shops, it might feel overwhelming to find the perfect one. Never fear, bazaar is here with a simple guide that will help steer you in the right direction depending on your recipient’s personality. Traditionalists These are the people who like things being done by the book. They know the rules and don’t want them to be broken. The perfect bouquet for them is a big bunch of bright red roses. Grey Flowers and Pick a Bunch have just what you need. If you’re willing to tow the line of propriety, you can be bold and order white roses or a mix of pink 18

and red. Or stick to red and get them in a box instead of a bouquet. Heart on their Sleeve Some people can’t help sharing their emotions and loyalties wherever they go. They are innocent and pure in their love and want to show the world that they are taken and that they partner is the best. Carnation Flowers have a fantastic solution, wearable flowers, in the form of bracelets and brooches. They are elegant, tasteful and the perfect addition to any outfit. And the perfect gift for romantics. Chocolate Lovers There are two types of people in the world, those who appreciate chocolate and those who are wrong about life. If you’re with the kind of person who loves flowers but still asks where is the food? Then you really need to pair your bouquet with some cocoa based delights. Camellia and Dolcissimo have got you covered. They offer beautiful floral arrangements that come with gorgeous boxes of chocolates. Practical People If your sweetie is not lovey-dovey on the outside, but is more on the stoic and responsible side, then you are doubly lucky. They might not be into hearts and teddy bears, but they will always have your back. An extravagant bouquet of roses might irk them more than delight them, instead opt for a practical gift. We

love the Coffee Lovers Box from In House Florist, it includes a bunch of flowers and a great coffee making kit, that will make your favorite morning person think of you every time they get caffeinated. Every Day is Valentine’s Day These are our favorite people, they treat every day as a gift and don’t feel the need to be tied down to a specific day to show and appreciate love. They deserve a subscription service and not just a single bunch of roses no matter how beautiful they are. Lavish Collection can send you flowers once a week. The scent of fresh flowers every morning says “I love you” in its own special way. Just like restaurants on Carriage, delivery time depends on your location, but most florists can provide delivery in under an hour. However, some arrangements are more intricate and require some extra time since these are delicate fresh flowers that need to be handled with the care they deserve. So check in advance to make sure that they will arrive in time.
