Valentines Flowers / January 12, 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.
For deliveries to the home anytime Feb. 11 through 14 is fine. Keep in mind that with flowers its often a good idea to request delivery a day early just in case the recipient is not home when your gift first arrives. Ordering online? Youll find florist designed and delivered bouquets and direct-shipped unarranged flowers in a box. Both options have advantages. Whats best for your Valentine? Flowers designed and delivered in water by local florists are ready to be enjoyed and often make the best overall impression. So florist delivery of arranged flowers should usually be your first choice for gifts to the workplace or anyone who may not want to arrange their own flowers. For gifts to the home and those who may enjoy placing their flowers in a vase direct-shipped roses lilies tulips and mixed bouquets offer an excellent value and the added convenience of online delivery tracking.
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.
On a budget? Theres more to Valentines flowers than just roses. Consider a fresh mixed bouquet in pinks and reds a colorful Spring assortment a soft pastel cluster of blossoms or a simple vase of tulips. Almost anything is appropriate for Valentines and mixed fresh flowers are often a better value than roses in February simply due to supply and demand. Arranging Delivery? If youre sending flowers to the workplace consider delivery relatively early in the week. Your flowers will be enjoyed more before the weekend and the recipient will be the envy of co-workers still waiting for their gifts. If youre planning a date on Valentines weekend sending flowers early can also be a great way to set the tone and let your Valentine know youre looking forward to the time together.
Finally regardless of whether you choose to send Valentines flowers or to purchase Valentines flowers yourself you should enclose a small note or other token with the bouquet that will further convey your sentiments to your partner. When you are choosing Valentines flowers for your beloved you should consider her personality and demeanor when you are choosing the bouquet. A person who is demure will appreciate a simple arrangement versus an extravagant over the top display of flowers. Under no circumstances should you ever use plastic or dead flowers in an arrangement. You should ensure the vendor you select provides only fresh flowers for your bouquet. For most of us guys flowers are a mystery. We know the reaction they get and that flowers are a great way to show how much we care.
