Valentines Flowers / January 14, 2019 / Fran Petty.
We also know that flowers are a pretty good way to get out of the doghouse. And theres no question that a thoughtful bouquet for Valentines Day can send just the right message of love friendship infatuation or romance. But most of us dont know a posy from a pansy. Fortunately we dont have to be floral experts to make a heart bloom this Valentines. All we need is a little common sense. Sending Roses? Theyre not all created equal. Roses vary widely by stem length blossom size color quality and price. Thats right guys roses are not always red. So consult a florist you trust about the best available colors and quality options. Red is still the most popular color at Valentines but many women surveyed prefer shades of pink peach orange lavender and other more feminine hues. And all roses symbolize love.
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 you cant find any flower food or dont have any handy all you need is a teaspoon of sugar a teaspoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of bleach dissolved in half a liter of water to help keep your flowers fresh. Flowers dont like direct sunlight or draughts and at night they like to be kept cool so keep them in a cool sheltered place. You should keep them away from anything that gives off heat like the TV microwave or indoor heating appliances (maybe in summer this wont be such a problem). If you have a flower arrangement you wont have to worry about rearranging the flowers as the work has been done for you. If you dont have an arrangement make sure you cut off approximately an inch off each stem at an angle before arranging them.
You can be sure that your gift of flowers for Valentines Day will be a complete surprise and a welcome one at that. You have to send Valentines flowers to a man with a lot of care especially if they are being delivered to his office. He might feel a little silly if a giant arrangement of red roses arrived at his desk mush to the amusement of his co-workers. You should therefore opt for a neutral looking arrangement of flowers that look masculine and not delicate. This is made possible by carefully selecting the color and type of flowers you use. For instance you could present him with a beautiful arrangement of orchids. They come in a variety of colors including purple and chocolate. There is even an orchid that is speckled with orange and brown. Sunflowers and birds of paradise are two popular flowers for gifting to men.
With all this in mind your flowers should remain fresh for longer but remember flowers are just like us. They come in all shapes and sizes and some will outlast the others. Its just a fact of life. Whether you choose to send Valentines flowers or present your beloved with Valentines flowers in person flowers are a wonderful method of expressing ones feelings. First you will need to decide if you want to send a single flower a bouquet or a flowering plant. Each type of presentation has its own special meaning. For example a flowering plant will provide a more lasting permanence as a reminder of your love for the recipient. However if the intended recipient does not have the time or patience to care for a plant then a bouquet may be a more appropriate gift.
