Flowers to Impress Your Partner’s Parents

Flowers to impress your partner's parents

Meeting your boyfriend or girlfriend's parents for the first time can be somewhat stressful. You have little to no idea what to expect, what to say, what not to say, and what you should bring along. Presenting your partner's parents with a gift is customary upon first introductions but, at the same time, you want to make sure that the gift is just right!

Fresh flowers are always a wonderful gift for the woman of the house. Remember that flower choice and colours are both important factors the will determine how well they are received. Red is a colour that you should avoid. Red roses and any other red flower is associated with a passionate kind of love. This is not the message you should be sending to such a recipient on this kind of occasion.

Yellow is the perfect colour and, if you want to play it extra safe, you can send a mixed bouquet with several kinds of flowers and various colours. A combination of orange, yellow, pink, and even some red will send just the right message. You could send various colours of the same flower, like a mixed bunch of roses or tulips, or you could mix flowers and colours.

Don't forget about a gift for the man of the house! When you place your flower order, you should ask your florist about including a bottle of wine. Remember, they most likely will not pop the cork then and there. It's customary for the host to keep the gift to enjoy or serve at a later stage.

Finally, don't forget to relax and have a good time! Ask your partner about any topics that will interest their parents and any that they should avoid. Always try to be yourself and have fun! Part of the dating experience is meeting the parents but, with the right gift, you're off to the best possible start!
