Sometimes I really wonder why malls bother to sell flowers. They have no fantasy what so ever when it comes to flowers. No flower power fantasy.

It should be the easiest product ever to arrange to appeal the customer and yet they just throw them in like it were out of interest.

Of course, very often they got them sold anyway, maybe that’s why? Everybody like to buy flowers to make life a little bit more beautiful. Or to make up for bad behaviour.

These pictures are from a mall nearby here. There is nothing wrong with the flowers - all flowers are beautiful in my eyes - but the arrangement of them.

There is so much you can do to make flowers look more pretty or stand out a little more, so why don’t they? Are their staff dull too? *lol*

Some of the pictures were so boring that I just can’t stand to show them!

Even for me, that LOVE flowers, it doesn’t look appealing enough to make me wanna buy one. Not even one. Then of course, I have no bad behaviour to make up for either…

Roses is often very difficult to buy this way, they won’t last for long, some even dies the day after. Let’s hope it wasn’t red roses symbolizing your love…

I strongly remember that Mr Lifecruiser brought yellow roses with him the first time we met.

(He didn’t know what to bring, since we just should be friends ;-)

I think that they could increase their sales with the double, at least, if they made some better flower arrangements.

What are your experiences?

    I give girls plants on a first date. Then I have a reason to keep calling her. To ask about the plant of course..
    Flowers just don’t last long. But a plant lets me harass a girl for pretty much ever without being charged with stalking ,ha,ha..

    Lifecruiser: I hear that you prefer girls with a green thumb, so I better warn all the Green Thumb Sunday participants now hah? *lol*

    i love flowers. i love their smell. i love their look. i love the way they make me feel, all happy inside. my ex never brought me flowers, well maybe once or twice maybe and that is a maybe..we were married over 13 yrs or so, lol..Joe doesn’t believe in buying flowers, ??? don’t understant it, but he doesn’t buy them even when i beg..The only person that has given me flowers was a Czech boyfriend i had when i was 18..the only way to see me was to come to mass with my family and he would should up with baby roses every sunday. he wasn’t at all romantic but that he did. he never will know how i still remember that so fondly and how happy he and they made me. Anyhoo, i buy me flowers. i try every wk to buy me a bouquet from Safeway (supermarket florist). the lady knows me and she knows they are mine and she arranges them nicely for me, she is most kind…And so my living room or bedroom if i’m stuck in bed for periods smell wonderful and they cheer me up immensely…Now, if i could just grow them i would have so many and enjoy them year…i don’t have a green thumb in me and i have tried trust

    there you go, much more than you ever wish to know about me and flowers, lol..

    Lifecruiser: If only guys knew how much the flowers really means!!!! And I’m not only talking about buying flowers, but also how they leave them to us… Mr L is an expert there, he do it with so much feeling. But there is one problem: he can’t find much opportunities to surprise me since we’re together all the time! *lol*

    Oh, I wish you lots and lots of flowers…..!!!!

    Ooh the flower arrangements here are stunning. I really need to take some pictures and show you. It’s all about presentation in my opinion, and the Dutch seem to know exactly how to do that, when it comes to flowers.

    Happy Sunday Mrs Lifecruiser :=)

    Lifecruiser: I could just imagine that, after all the Dutch is known for their flowers! You live in the flower heaven ;-)

    Green Thumb ? I thought I were at a blogging chick ! Never mind, with flower arrangement I see this the other way around. When it’s not nicely done, I prefer it, because then I have a challenge to do it myself and much better ! As I already said, everything which tickles my creative side, I love to do.

    Lifecruiser: Ok, I’m a blogging chick with green thumbs…. Hm, how do I look? *lol*

    When I buy flowers and they try to put together a bouquet, I almost always have to stop them or change what they suggest and combine my own instead. It’s very few of them that really put together stunning bouquets. I bet it’s different in Belgium.

    You’re so right about the boring flower arrangements. I see them all the time in the grocery stores here…especially this time of the year. I did spot some sunflowers the other day that were very nice :)

    Lifecruiser: The silly thing is that itdidn’t have to take much to make them a thousand times better, not much more time or money. Well, maybe I have to tip them :-)

    Norma UNITED STATES said:

    I think they are selling them for me–can’t grow or arrange them.

    Lifecruiser: Aha, so THAT’s why…!!! *lol*

    Christine UNITED STATES said:

    Yellow is my favorite color of rose,too:???::???:! I agree roses in the grocery stores, don’t smell as good, as a real rose bush, or even ones from a Flower Shop. One of my experiences, was driving along a Highway in Mexico, and on both sides for as far as you could see were Rose Bushes, that were being grown for Markets! I like it when my husband surprises me with flowers, and if they die the next day, I just dry them out and tie a ribbon around them and they last a little longer that way! But it still makes me sad to see them die!

    Lifecruiser: Oh, that sounded beautiful, to pass fields with Roses…. *dreamy look*

    I love flowers! Period. And I’ve even purchased them at supermarkets in bunches wrapped in cellophane and take them home and make my own arrangement. Ya, I agree with you — in the USA there are ‘classes’ you can take to learn the art of flower arrangement. Maybe these store employees should consider the classes? *smiles*

    Lifecruiser: They sure need that classes, but I guess the stores don’t want to spend that money on them. Maybe if they draw some figures about how much the sales would go up…. *lol*


    I’ve never met a flower I didn’t like and I’ve never had that experience with the flowers in the stores but now that you mention it I will pay more attention!

    Lifecruiser: May you’re surrounded with good stores :-)

    Alice AUSTRALIA said:

    Most of them in the supermarkets here seemed to be arranged attractively (not that I ever buy them). However, what is sad is the fact that they are being flown in from overseas, bypassing our own flower growing industry.

    Lifecruiser: Lucky you, over here it’s rather dull as said. I do agree though, that it’s sad that it’s being flown in from overseas.

    Colleen UNITED STATES said:

    The arrangements I tend to see around here are pretty boring, too. However, bouquets of yellow roses, like the one you showed, can get me every time. I absolutely love yellow roses. Which is odd, since I’m normally not a big fan of yellow….go figure :-)

    Lifecruiser: I agree that yellow roses is wonderful and I don’t like yellow normally either!!!!!
