Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Francisca Mccarty
In fact flowers are by far the most popular romantic gift along with chocolate for this special day celebrated by those in love. But you dont want to wait until the last minute to purchase them. Prices go sky high the day before Valentines Day so get your order in early. What kind of flowers should you give? Choosing the right flower can be a little frustrating but dont despair! Here are some helpful suggestions. Some people believe that roses are the only flower that will do as Valentines flowers. Roses are the ultimate romantic flower. No flower says "I love you!" the way a rose does. For that reason they are the most popular flower for that special day. Red roses are the most traditional Valentines flower but pink white and yellow are also given. Maybe youre thinking of the right flower to give to someone who is glamorous.
Any flower you choose will delight the person you send it to. Wondering how much it will cost to send your loving gift? If youre on a tight budget and cant spend a lot no worries! You can still get a nice bouquet of Valentines Day flowers for under $30. For example a very beautiful bright and sunny flower arrangement selection I recently saw consisted of yellow daisy chrysanthemums purple asters hot pink and orange carnations and more. These delicate beauties are delivered in a miniature ginger vase adorned with a plaid yellow ribbon. The arrangement and vase measures approximately 9" wide by 12" high. Thats a lot of Valentines flowers for the price! Maybe youre looking for something that will really show how much you love that special person and price is not an issue. Well then you can spend $175.00 $200.00 or even more.
If youre one of the lucky people who received a bunch of beautiful flowers from your loved one you may want to know how your gift can keep on giving. At Petals weve had a number of florists over the years help customers and our own staff with keeping their flowers alive and fresh. There are number of things our florists have taught us that you can do to ensure your Valentines efforts last longer. First of all no matter how they were delivered either by hand by the florists or by a courier make sure you put your flowers into a clean vase with the wrapping still on and let them drink up the clean water. Next make sure you use cut flower food. The flowers will last longer if you use cut flower food but make sure you the read directions and use the correct amount.
