Presenting a bouquet to your beloved is a great way to cheer her up and wish her a happy birthday. Someone buys a bouquet for congratulations on the way to the holiday, but most of them think in advance which composition to choose. What flowers to choose for the bouquet to be liked? Should I give roses for a happy birthday? How many flowers should there be in a bouquet? You can find out the answers to these questions in this article.

What flowers to give?

Select flowers depending on the occasion and your goals. If you don't know which flowers a girl prefers, just ask her. After you have chosen the perfect bouquet for a happy birthday, it remains to give it correctly.

When the girl comes up to you, calmly hold the flowers in your hands. Be sure to keep the bouquet with the buds up. It is bad manners to give it in the transparent film; it can ruin the whole appearance. If it is in a protective thermal pack, it is better to open it in advance. Be sure to tell your lady that the flowers are as beautiful as she is. Enjoy a sincere smile and eyes shining just for you. There are no special difficulties; the main thing is not to rush and do everything elegantly.

The best bouquet is the one that suits the tastes of the girl. But if you do not know about her preferences and are embarrassed to ask, use our tips:

  • If the girl is young enough, present lush bush daisies, tender white rose, snow-white gerberas or tulips. They symbolise purity and girlish innocence.
  • For birthday greetings with round dates of 20, 25 and 30 years, choose premium Ecuadorian roses or lilies. They look really chic. Give preference to bright colours or, conversely, pastel mixes, two-tone varieties or bouquets with a gradient.
  • In the spring-summer period, the girls' favourites are peonies and tender coloured roses. Take this opportunity to wish the birthday girl longevity, prosperity, good luck and great happiness, presenting an amazing bouquet of the best flowers.
  • If you are looking for a bouquet for your beloved's birthday, choose sensual red roses or orchids. The last flower means not only love but also sexuality and eroticism.
  • When choosing a bouquet, be guided by the rule the younger the birthday girl, the lighter the buds’ shades should be. Creamy, peach and rose petals look delicate and sophisticated.
