PICK THE PERFECT
COLOUR FLOWERS

A bunch of flowers is a joy to receive, but a bouquet made up of your favourite, meaningful shades is a new level of joy

Here’s how to choose your best-ever bunch from our colour wheel (clockwise from top). Nothing shouts energy and passion like red. Put some yellow in the mix – our sunshine bouquet, tutti frutti roses or Fairtrade rose and alstroemeria will do the trick – and you’ve got a bouquet that’s bursting with happiness. If life has been a bit hectic, relax with the shades of serene blue in our cool rose and sea thistle arrangement. For occasions that call for gentleness – christenings, congratulating new mums – think soft pastel pink, like our Avalanche roses. If someone has passed a big test, regal purple flowers like our soft lilac garden or amethyst bouquet evoke feelings of pride, dignity and success.
