Your Guide to Giving Flowers

  What's the best way for you to make a lasting impression on someone you like? Research shows that the answer to making a memorable impact is right under your nose through flowers. In fact, 92% of women can remember the last time they received flowers, and 89% say receiving flowers makes them feel special.

  Flowers are a simple and sensual gift that can express any emotion or sentiment. Giving great floral gifts, however, still remains a mystery to most mankind. This is where Nicola Flora comes to your rescue. You don't have to wait for a special occasion to impress with flowers. Give them a memory they will never forget. The fact is 96% of people like to receive flowers when they're not expecting them.

  The most important thing to remember is you can't go wrong with flowers. Our approach at Nicola Flora is to ask questions about what atmosphere or mood you are trying to create and we will provide expert advice on arrangements or gifts that enhance any sentiment or occasion. Describing the recipient's personality, as well as favorite hobbies or colors will help us match the floral arrangement or gift with the recipient's personal preferences.

The New Thing 

  This emotion may be really difficult for some to express, so Nicola provides style advice for people who want to show their new romantic interest exactly how their feel. A passionate arrangement is filled with hot pinks, oranges, reds and golds. Add a thoughtful card to help communicate just the right sentiment. 

The Real Deal

   Flowers are intimately and internationally linked with the art of romance, and for good reason. As relationships grow, flowers become symbols of different events and milestones in our lives together. Take note of their favorite flowers, the varieties at your wedding, flowers you sent them when you first started dating or the ones they buy for themselves. Those will have great meaning and impact.

- Family and Friends

   Absolutely everyone deserves a little TLC now and then, but especially those who are always there for us, through thick and thin. A fabulous flowering plant or a garden-style arrangement with greens and soft pastel hues no matter what the flower will send the message that you care.

- The Pal

  Flowers that show you're thinking of someone, but not in a sensual way, have a natural, just-picked feeling. Usually customers ask for a simple but elegant selection of garden-style flowers or a bright bold color palette that is fun and whimsical. A basket with a mix of flowering and green plants delivered to their door or office is also a sure fire winner.

- Monobotanic

  Arrangements featuring only one type of flower (such as all roses, tulips, lilies or iris) are in style and may even include different colors of the same flower in the vase or container.

- Monochromatic

  Pick a color, any color and stick with it! If their favorite color is pink, for example, ask your florist for a fresh bouquet of different flowers in the same color range.

- Bunches of Texture

  Ask your florist to select complementary flowers of various textures to place in bunches in an elegant glass container. This unique look has a bold, contemporary feel and will surely provide the 'wow' factor.

- Be Spontaneous

  You don't have to wait for a special occasion to give flowers. In fact, most customers say 'no reason' is the best reason to get flowers.

- Size Doesn't Matter

 Trust your florist to help you send an arrangement that is appropriate for the occasion. Bouquets both big and small can make a bold statement. It's the sentiment that makes the impact.

- Score Big Points

 Surprise them by sending a bouquet to their office, and see how much attention you'll get because of the attention they got!

- Relax

  Flowers don't have to mean commitment. People usually know when an arrangement simply means that you care.
