Host: When it comes to flowers, most women knows what they like and what they don’t like which can make the process of buying flowers very intimidating to the man.
Samantha Daniels: A dozen red roses is not always a romantic gesture for every woman across the world. Some women like flowers, some women don’t.
Host: Well, I’m meeting up with Tam Ashworth, florist for the Four Seasons Aviara Resort. And her advice – when in doubt find a good florist.
Tam Ashworth: I think some guys come into flower shop and just say “I need some flowers.”
Host: Do you encourage them to maybe dig a little and find out information?
Tam Ashworth: I do, I can get really nosy so that we can do a better job for them. You know, you ask them also some question to find out like where they're going with this, or how or when is it going to be appropriate.
Host: So now I have to ask you, what’s the most romantic flower arrangement that you have ever created?
Tam Ashworth: We had a guest staying here and I think he proposed to his girlfriend on the flower field and then he came back for his anniversary but it wasn’t that time of the year. I mean he came back and he brought her here and we had to create a flower field for him in the bedroom.
Host: In a room?
Tam Ashworth: In a room.
Host: How did you do that?
Tam Ashworth: So we lined the whole, you know going down into the room once you opened the door into the room with flowers with petals and just making sure that there are lots and lots and lots of flowers in the room. And the chef came in and cooked for them that evening.
Host: So there are so many ways to appropriate flowers that are that are not the traditional way.
Tam Ashworth: Exactly.
Host: A bouquet of flowers is nice but if you put a little more thought into it you can create something spectacular and more romantic. You just need to know the answers to a few key questions.
Tam Ashworth: How unique is she. Is she into color, or is she into fragrance or how sweet is she as a person. It’s always good to know what that person is like. If she likes scented flowers I would send out like freesia and tupa roses and even gardenias and things and roses and you know all in a bouquet. Or if she likes colorful then we could do a little more exotic like orchids and something with color and bright.
Tam Ashworth: That could easily be translated as romantic because after all beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Host: Yes it is. So do a little asking maybe not the day before but find out her favorite colors and scents. It would help a lot when you’re flower shopping and that desired response, well you might just get it.
