Ready to pop the question? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and presents you with the perfect opportunity to propose. If you plan to make the most of this opportunity, you might need a little more than amazing flower arrangements to send the right message. Valentine’s Day and proposals are all about grand gestures! And this year, we’d like to share a few tips and ideas on how to ask for your love’s hand in marriage.

Three Great Ways to Propose this Valentine’s Day 

  • Sing Your Way Into Her Heart!

Ever watched Big Bang Theory when Howard proposes to Bernadette? If you haven’t seen it, check it out here. Recreate the scene with a love-song of your own and your closest family/friends as backup. Add a personal touch to make it your own. Perhaps your backup buddies can all be holding bunches of her favourite flowers or brightly coloured flower arrangements.

  • Flash Mob Her!

You probably know that a flash mob is a performance put on suddenly by a group of people in a public place. You can tone it up or down, depending on your preference. If you haven’t seen the Isaac Flash Mob Proposal, you can check it out here. It is the perfect example of how you can use your family and friends to create a flash mob scene that says “Marry Me” in the most beautiful, yet fun way.  Try work in some flower petal throwing like confetti and don’t forget, you need flower bunches to spoil her with before and after!

  • Classic Proposal!

Not keen on anything too extreme? Like to keep things simple? Why not say it with flowers. Flower bunches, plants and flower arrangements are just a phone call away. Fill the house or room with her favourite flowers with a cute note attached saying “marry me”.

Yes, it is that time of year again… The month of love is just around the corner. Secret admirers the world over are about to take a chance on love.

Avoid the Last-Minute Scramble for a Valentine’s Day Gift 

If you were caught last year scrambling for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift, this year it is time to do things a little differently! Why not rather order your flower arrangements, plants, and bunches in advance this time around?

At Impala Flora, we have seen bunches of flowers, plants and arrangements of all sizes leave our store and head for their soon-to-be delighted recipients. What makes us so proud is that we have had a hand in helping someone spread the love. This year, we would love to help you spoil that special someone.

Five of the Best for Your Love

Of course, there are many types of flowers, arrangements and bunches to choose from. Below is our top pick of 5 flowers/plants that we recommend for Valentine’s Day:

  1. Roses – yes, this one is a bit obvious, but roses are indeed the flower of love and romance. If you’re not too keen on crimson red roses, try something a little different. Consider a gorgeous handful of yellow roses or even delicate white roses. All send a beautiful message of love.
  2. Proteas – these are elegant, strong flowers that typically symbolise diversity, courage, and transformation. They are the perfect Valentine’s gift – and will help to take your relationship to the next level.
  3. Gerberas – this plant is a type of daisy and is perfect to gift in a pot. This particular flower has several meanings, all of which point to happiness. If you are looking for a cheerful and bright way to say “be my Valentine”, the Gerbera is the perfect pick.
  4. Anthuriums – these are beautiful plants that are long-lasting too. The flower is shaped almost like a heart and symbolises good luck. If you are taking a chance on love, this is the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift.
  5. Spathiphyllums – these are also called “Peace Lilies” and they have many symbols associated with them. One of which is purity, which is perfect if you are sending Valentine’s Day flowers to a brand-new love (or someone you have been admiring from afar).

Hopefully, these top picks will help you to choose the perfect flower arrangements, plants or flower bunches for your love this Valentine’s Day. Need more advice or would like to place an order? Simply contact us via email or telephone at Impala Flora today.

We all know how challenging it can be to think of the perfect gift to give someone on a special occasion. The good news is that, in most cases, you don’t have to think further than a classic flower bunch, flower arrangement or houseplant! Here are 5 different occasions when these are certain to put a smile on the receiver’s face:

  1. Congratulations 

A beautiful bunch of flowers is the best way to congratulate someone on an achievement. Whether someone has just graduated or been promoted at work, every time they look at the flowers, they will be reminded of their success and feel those proud emotions all over again.

  1. New Baby 

When you’ve just had a baby, it’s safe to say that you don’t get out of the house much – at least for those first few weeks! You can bring the joys of the outdoors to those sleep-deprived parents by giving the gift of a beautiful flower bunch or generous flower arrangement. The lovely aromas are also sure to lift the spirits during those lonely night-feedings.

  1. House Warming 

There is no doubt that fresh plants and colourful flowers breathe life into a home. What better way to welcome someone into his or her new living space?

  1. Get Well Soon 

There is something about plants and flowers that help you to feel healthier the second you see or smell them. No wonder they’re the perfect ‘get well soon’ gift.

  1. Birthday 

Spoil the birthday girl or boy with a new plant or flower arrangement. Pair with a card as a loving, finishing touch.
