Plants are sometimes more important than more precious presents. Let`s find out some peculiarities about choosing and giving flowers for Russian girls.

In Russian the bouquets of flowers are presented on every significant event like first date, birthday, the 8th of March (International Women`s Day), graduation from university, first day at work. Unexpectedly given flowers are even better.
If you buy plant for any important event or for no reason, pay much attention to the number of these flowers. In Russia only odd number of flowers is appropriate. Even though in other countries a dozen of flowers will be ok. However in Russia, even number of flowers is given for sad occasions, funerals.
Another tradition is connected with the number 13. It is believed that 13 is unhappy number. So, buy 11 or 15 flowers.
In Russia it is believed that as longer the bouquet is fresh as stronger feelings of a boyfriend are. When plants wilt quickly, it means that the relationship you have can`t last long. So flowers should be bought just before a significant occasion. Don`t buy in advance.

flowers or a large solemn bouquet. In this case, decorative compositions and an
abundance of lush greenery are welcomed as a part of the composition.

How to give a bouquet in a unique way?
There are some ideas how to give flowers unexpectedly:
- Insert one artificial flower into the composition of roses or other plants. Presenting the bouquet you can say – “I will stop loving you only when the last rose wilts in this bouquet.” Most likely, the girl will not guess what this phrase means. But when there is one never-fading flower left in the wilted bouquet, it will be very touching.
- You can arrange a real flower festival to your beloved lady. Throughout a day she will find her favorite flowers left in advance in the most unexpected places: in the bathroom, hall, near the house, in a taxi, at the workplace, etc.
- Flowers from nowhere are one of the most romantic ways of giving them. To do this, you need to select a bouquet in advance, and place it somewhere: under the table in a cafe, behind the seat in the cinema, in the supermarket’s locker room, etc. And at the most unexpected moment give the bouquet to your girl to impress her.
Remember, even a single, modest rose, chamomile, cornflower or other plant very often looks much more romantic and sweet than armfuls of expensive flowers. Moreover, ladies love to attract the attention of other women, to catch their envious and admiring glances.
For a bouquet of flowers the occasion is unimportant! Emotions, words and the way you present flowers are much more significant. Choose the best bouquet for your Russian bride, and she will certainly appreciate it.
