We all know what a great pick me up flowers can be, especially when the recipient is not expecting them and this month, whilst the hot weather is driving many people crazy, why not do some flower crazy things with bouquets and blooms and get double the happy feeling for you and the recipient?
Some years back, our longstanding readers will remember me recounting how a friend of mine, for a dare, dressed up in a tux, hired a nice car for the day, popped into the local florists and bought thirty red roses. Armed and ready, he then toured the streets for candidates to give a rose to.
Foolishly accompanying him on his quest to get arrested, I initially cringed but then saw the surprise and often, joy, on the faces of those he ran up to, presenting them with the single red rose accompanied by a brief comment on their beauty, their attire or their smile before leaping back in the car and driving off. What the ladies must have though remains a mystery but it will certainly have given them something to tell their friends and family that evening and it confirmed that he was definitely ‘flower crazy’.
You needn’t be quite as mad with flowers but another way to do good with flowers is to think of whether someone has done something good for you recently? If so, consider thanking them with even the smallest of floral gifts and they are more likely to repeat the act for you or someone else. A recent survey noted that the size of the bouquet matters not, just the act of giving flowers is enough.
You could also send a bouquet anonymously to someone but try to be nearby when they receive it so you can see their reaction. They and their friends will have endless fun trying to guess who sent them!
Often people would like to send flowers but the expense of modern day life or their personal financial situation often precludes them from doing so. Ask your friends to nominate someone who really deserves flowers then be magnanimous and send them on their behalf. You could even start a trend and launch your idea on Twitter or Facebook!
If you don’t get flowers very often, buy yourself some flowers and make those in your life who should have bought them, very jealous!
Wickedly, you could buy flowers for someone who really doesn’t deserve them. Studies on praise and rewards show that those who receive the opposite of what they were expecting, especially when it is a nice opposite, consider their behaviour and are more likely to make a positive change.
If you decide to ‘go flower crazy’ with a floral gift this summer, make sure you order them from Cosmea Gardens. You’ll get great value for money as well as very special flowers and they have gifts to suit every pocket. It will cost you from under 20 euros, a small price to pay for the effect your flowers will have. You never know just what will come of your gift but then that’s half the surprise!
