Bouquet recipe: first date bouquet

For a stunning first impression

Full of nerves, you asked your crush out on a date and they answered with a resounding 'Yes! You can't believe your luck and have spent all week thinking about what you are going to do on the big day. Casual or that knock-out outfit? But it’s not just your coat and shoe combination that will catch your crush’s eye.  Show that you really fancy them by taking flowers with you.

First date bouquet recipe

Beautiful inside and out

For an unforgettable impression, your bouquet is not only very beautiful, but the meaning is spot on. You don’t want to move too fast and scare your crush away. Do you want to express your intentions more subtly than standing on the doorstep with a dozen red roses? Then do it with the first date bouquet.

Did you know that lilacs stand for young, first love? Off to a good start! Delphiniums symbolise the desire to stay together and ranunculus in your bouquet means that you find someone attractive. With a blossom branch you signify a new beginning, and of course you add love with a few roses. Set the tone right from the start with this first date bouquet.

You will need:

  • Lilac
  • Delphinium
  • Ranunculus
  • Blossom branch
  • Rose

How to make:

The easiest way is to ask the florist to create a bouquet. With a list of ingredients like this, the florist has all the tools they need to make something beautiful. And you can also add that extra personal touch yourself.  Take a look at how to make a biedermeier arrangement or an informal bouquet yourself. At the florist, choose flowers that you like as well as flowers you think your love will like. Don't forget during the process why you want to give this bouquet: to make a good first impression. So be yourself, be friendly and enjoy the moment.
