Picture them slaying on the flower runway because if there were a Met Gala for blooms, you'd find roses in the spotlight, without a doubt.

Talk the Talk: The Colour Code

Get this; each colour is like an emoji for a certain vibe. It's more than a hue; it's a whole darn mood! So choose wisely, or you'll send smiley faces when you mean hearty eyes.

Creating Your Floral Masterpiece

Who knew arranging flowers could be as intricate as a ballet performance? It's not just chucking fresh flowers into a vase but curating a visual symphony.

The Art of Symmetry vs. Asymmetry

Some like it balanced; others say red roses thrive in chaos. Know what your roses prefer. Think of it as the flower version of finding your perfect hairstyle.

Why Odd is In

Three's not a crowd in the flower world. Odd numbers create a visual flow, like a poetic verse but with petals. Trust me; it's a numbers game of love you'll love.

Must-Have Tools for Budding Florists

Ready to take the plunge? You'll need the right tools. Like painting a Mona Lisa, you need more than just enthusiasm—precision. So invest in a solid pair of clippers today, okay?

Water You Waiting For? Hydration 101

Yes, roses get thirsty but not desperate! Overwatering fresh roses is a no-no. Too little water? Just as bad. Aim for that hydration sweet spot.

Ready to become the rose whisperer? Prepare to be dazzled by Flower Guy's top-five trade secrets to make your rose bouquet a show-stopper!

Secret 1: Seasonality - The Calendar Whisperer

Hold on to your petal hats, people! You wouldn't wear a winter coat to the beach in July. Just like your wardrobe, roses have seasons too! Winter roses have their own sort of luxurious, robust bloom, while summer roses are all about that light, airy, flirtatious vibe. Choose the rose that matches the season, and let Mother Nature be your wing-woman!

Secret 2: Layers Matter - The Cake of Flowers

Why settle for a flat when you can have 3D? Imagine your bouquet as a multi-layered cake. It's not just roses stacked on each other—oh no, darling. You have your base, your fillers, your focal points, and of course, the dazzling top. Each layer adds a level of oomph, making your bouquet go from "aww" to "awe!"

Secret 3: Water Level - The Goldilocks Zone

Too much water? Your roses will drown. Too little? They'll dry up faster than your phone battery on a Tinder swipe spree. Just like Goldilocks wanted her porridge just right, your roses crave the perfect level of H2O. So, give them that sweet spot where they can sip but not gulp!

Secret 4: The Snip and Dip - Spa Day!

This isn't just a cut; it's a full-on, five-star spa treatment! Snip those stems at a 45-degree angle for optimal water intake, and then immediately dip them in cold water. It's like a rose pedicure and a hydrating face mask. It's not just science; it's luxury science.

Secret 5: Temperature Play - Sauna or Ice Bar?

Imagine stepping into a hot shower, only for it to turn ice-cold a minute later. Unpleasant, right? Your roses feel the same way! Keep the water temperature consistent, not too hot and not too cold. Your roses want to relax in a cosy bath, not a polar plunge or a steam room.
