It is one thing to want to give flowers to your girl, but it is quite another to walk into the flower shop and scout for actual blooms to give. For one thing, girls attach too much meaning to a bouquet of flowers. Different colors have different meanings. The number of flowers in one set have different meanings altogether. Even the actual flower arrangements are supposed to have their own connotations. For a guy, a flower is a flower is a flower, no matter what its color is, number or arrangement. Besides, when a guy walks into a flower shop and asks for flowers to give to his girl everyone just assumes that he did something really bad. And that he is giving flowers to his significant other as a way of begging for forgiveness.
Really, what is a guy to do? If you are truly embarrassed about buying flowers for your girlfriend, use a Houston virtual florist instead. This is particularly helpful if: you live in city; or your girl lives in the city; or one or both of you live just outside the borders of Houston. There are so many virtual florists now that you probably wont have any problem at all about finding a good service. However, it is our recommendation that you find one that has a brick-and-mortar flower shop within your (or your girlfriends) immediate area.
Some people may not attach any importance to the actual location of the brick-and-mortar flower shop, claiming that most virtual florists would, after all, seek the services of local flower dealers to get the job done. You should remember though that the chain of command goes: you, virtual florist, local florist, your girlfriend. That is, if all things go smoothly. This series of communications is grounds of confusion and misunderstanding.
Unfortunately, as the consumer, you get to be on the losing end of this picture. For one thing, if there is some mix-up along the way, your girlfriend wont get the flowers when they are due. Translation: if you are begging of forgiveness, you are in far deeper trouble than you ever before if the flowers do not show up on time (or show up at all!)
Make sure then that the Houston virtual florist you patronize actually has a flower shop nearby. This is to ensure that she will get the blooms exactly when you want them delivered. If there are none, try to scout around for a Houston virtual florist who is willing to deliver to her place, and make sure that you read their policies about flower deliveries and possible refunds for non-delivery of goods.
Once you get a likely florist, then you choose the flowers for your intended. The wonderful thing about most Houston virtual florist is that you could actually see the flowers, their description and possible meanings on the websites already. This saves you the trouble from having to figure out what the meanings are behind every stalk and leaf. And if you are particularly feeling a bit mushy at the moment, you can avail of the other services they have as well. Some of the add-on services include flowers plus wine; or chocolates; or stuffed bears
