This week is National Flower Week. This means one of two things: You have a reason to go out and buy yourself flowers just because, or you can pester your guy to get you flowers (it's a national holiday!) During this week only, you're allowed to have a bouquet in every room. Also: You can wear flowers in your hair or pin them to your clothes a la Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City Season 3. Or give yourself a floral iPhone background! The possibilities are endless.
If your man does end up buying you flowers, the flowers he chooses can say a lot about your relationship. Use this key to figure out what the flowers he brought home mean.
Carnations are one of the cheapest flowers, but they come in a ton of colors. So either your guy knew your favorite color was hot Pink and decided to get a flower in your favorite color (how sweet!) or he ran into the flower shop and grabbed the cheapest flower without putting any thought into it. If he did the latter, don't get too upset. Maybe he just needs a little coaching or a hint for next time!
Tulips are my favorite flower. I think they're the perfect gift for any special moment in a relationship, and they're more unique than roses. They come in a variety of colors, and if your guy gets you a multi-colored tulip bouquet, he obviously put a lot of thought into the gift.
The peony is a favorite of Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf. Blair has impeccable taste (as if you didn't know that), because peonies are so classy and pristine. They're also an omen for good fortune, and they're known as the flower of riches and honor, according to Teleflora.com. If your guy picks up some peonies, then you may just have good relationship luck coming your way. And chances are, he likes your classy style!
If I were a guy, I would get a girl daisies if the relationship was new. Daisies are fun, pretty flowers that don't mean anything too serious (like "I love you"). Daisies represent innocence, so it's the perfect flower for the honeymoon stage of a relationship when you haven't had any real fights or issues yet.
5. Red Roses
On the total opposite end of the spectrum, we have red roses, which, if I were a guy, I wouldn't get for someone I wasn't serious about. Many guys may be afraid to get girls roses too early in the relationship, so if he ends up buying them for you, then either you have something very special or he's completely clueless about what flowers mean. Which, to be honest, a lot of guys are.
