Valentines Flowers / January 14, 2019 / Mara Beasley
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.
Your imagination is the only limiting factor here! Where should you buy the flowers? You can check out reputable local florists or better (and easier) yet is to go online and order from a reputable online florist. Just be sure you understand what you are getting for the money before actually placing your order and paying. This applies to both local and online. Bouquets ordered online are designed and delivered by local florists with same-day delivery available. Its tough to be romantic when youre on the go working 12 hours a day and juggling mulitple priorities. No wonder that on a romance scale of 1 to 10 only 19% of women rate their boyfriend husband or significant other a 7 or higher. But wait guys; theres help. Even if youre on the go you can boost your romance quotient this Valentines. Heres how.
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.
