Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Shawn Mcgee.
If youre one of the lucky people who received a bunch of beautiful flowers from your loved one you may want to know how your gift can keep on giving. At Petals weve had a number of florists over the years help customers and our own staff with keeping their flowers alive and fresh. There are number of things our florists have taught us that you can do to ensure your Valentines efforts last longer. First of all no matter how they were delivered either by hand by the florists or by a courier make sure you put your flowers into a clean vase with the wrapping still on and let them drink up the clean water. Next make sure you use cut flower food. The flowers will last longer if you use cut flower food but make sure you the read directions and use the correct amount.
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.
Many women face a dilemma whenever Valentines Day comes up. They would like to send Valentines flowers to the man in their lives but are unsure about how to proceed. Men tend to make it quite difficult for them by not admitting outright that they too appreciate receiving tokens of love such as flowers. Men enjoy getting expensive gifts but they also want to get gifts that come from the heart and indicate that their partners or loved ones truly care about them. If you are wondering how to make Valentines Day special for your husband or boyfriend you should consider sending him flowers this year. Of course you need to do this correctly so that you do not inadvertently make him feel uncomfortable and thereby ruin the entire purpose of the gesture.
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.
In other words you look like you were planning ahead and avoid any risk of your gift looking like a last-minute afterthought. Theres more to Valentines than just red roses. While beautiful long-stem red roses are still the most popular Valentines flower gift there are lots of other options for every taste and budget. Many women prefer pretty pastel roses in pink peach yellow or assorted spring colors. They can make you stand out from the crowd. And almost half of all Valentines bouquets arent roses at all; theyre lush mixed bouquets and spring flowers such as tulips. Choosing something unique can show you remember your sweethearts favorite color or flower. Your favorite florist will have a great selection and can quickly help you with the best choice. Remember flowers after Valentines too.
