Valentines Flowers / January 14, 2019 / Shawn Mcgee.
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.
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.
And ordering only takes a few minutes. So dont let your busy schedule get in the way. Just pick up the phone or shop online. But remember Valentines is the "Superbowl" of flower holidays with five to ten times the normal volume of deliveries. So for the best selection service and pricing its best to order early. Youll be glad you did. Sending flowers to where she works? Thats a great idea. It can brighten her whole week shell be reminded of you every time she looks at them and co-workers comments are a big plus too. But heres a helpful tip from Romeos in the know. With million of deliveries on Valentines Day flowers can arrive almost anytime. So play it safe. Ask for delivery the day before Valentines. That way your gift will be even more of a pleasant surprise and is sure to be enjoyed throughout all of Valentines Day.
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.
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.
