A Guy's Guide to Flowers

    Whether picking them up for a date, your mum or yourself, the art of buying flowers is one not easily mastered.

    For you:
    One bloom in a vase adds sufficient color and life to an apartment. “it’s more about quality than quantity when dressing a bachelor pad. One simple flower, like an orchid plant or blooming artichoke, is certainly more stylish for a man than say a bunch on a coffee table. Keep it simple and modern” says Brent Wang, owner of Eggs in Los Angeles – the man behind bouquets for guys like Will Smith and movie producer, Joel Silver.

    For them:
    • When in doubt, ask. “I always ask nonchalantly inquiring into the receiver’s floral taste. This can be achieved by commenting on something you see or asking what other flowers the recipient favors”. Hint: Ask now and be prepared for V-day.
    • Don’t have much cash? “A large single flower is ideal when arriving for a date. Make an impact with an amaryllis or a peony.”

    • Impress Mom by going big. “Moms and grandmothers respond to scale. Ask for white china mums. They’re bound, fluffy and inexpensive. Long stem roses were last in vogue in the 50s. if you want roses, go with a shorter, lightly packed arrangement (known as pauve roses) are in. plus, it’s cheaper.” [p/s: now you know what to give your mum in the Mother's Day next week!]
