Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Imelda Chang
Stay away from pastel shades when selecting flowers to send your boyfriend or husband. Even if you do send roses you could pick orange ones or better still ones that are almost black in color. These flowers are dyed black and any florist can organize them for you. Make sure that the flowers you send are in a masculine looking vase or arrangement. Vases made of leather pewter or stainless steel will be better appreciated than delicate looking crystal or porcelain. The arrangement should not have anything remotely delicate in it. If you feel that the flowers will not be appreciated you could send your boyfriend or husband a beautiful bonsai instead. This will have maximum impact and can also be placed in the office in order to brighten up the place. A bonsai can be quite expensive but it makes a very attractive gift to a man.
While men are constantly advised to listen to what women are not saying for women its easier because men will quite plainly just tell you what they like and what they dislike. It will be as different and obvious as the Packers and The Bears. Women just need to know the difference learning about it is not necessary. Stick a few Valentines roses inside a football shaped container at dinner or consider decorating the house in the colors of his favorite sports team and give him a break from all the pink and red. There is a whole world of sports memorabilia out there for the sports fan. Rule Three: Indulgence is key. Just because your partner is watching his weight (men watch their weight almost as much as women) or because youre mother-in-law has been deploring about your husbands blood pressure doesnt mean that he cant enjoy something once in a while. On Valentines Day turning the tables and buying some special food favorites for him is a good idea. Men are the worlds biggest fan of food or try buying him chocolate gifts for a change. The truth about gift buying is that isnt easy for either men or women and both look for easy options.
Make sure this cut is at an angle as this helps the flowers access the water better than if the stems were standing on the bottom of the vase. When cutting the stems never break them off with your hands or flatten them as this will also shorten the flower life. Once this is done all you have to do is tend to your flowers as you would your garden or any living thing for that matter! Regularly top up the vase with clean water. You should make sure the leaves are never covered with water as they will only contaminate the water. The leaves will rot and breed bacteria thus decreasing the longevity of the cut flowers. You should also keep your flowers away from fruit. You cant smell it but fruit gives off ethylene gas which affects the quality of the flowers life.
