According to professor Jeannette Haviland-Jones PhD "The phrase stop and smell the roses may have a touch of genius in it." Order early. Sending Valentines flowers is fast and easy! There are wonderful local florists in virtually every town as well as dozens of leading online florists that deliver nationwide.
Make sure this cut is at an angle as this helps the flowers access the water better than if the stems were standing on the bottom of the vase. When cutting the stems never break them off with your hands or flatten them as this will also shorten the flower life. Once this is done all you have to do is tend to your flowers as you would your garden or any living thing for that matter! Regularly top up the vase with clean water. You should make sure the leaves are never covered with water as they will only contaminate the water. The leaves will rot and breed bacteria thus decreasing the longevity of the cut flowers. You should also keep your flowers away from fruit. You cant smell it but fruit gives off ethylene gas which affects the quality of the flowers life.
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.
Unfortunately this myth has taken over the internet and there are few articles that can guide women to help buy valentine gifts for men. There are some rules that apply to men and women alike when it comes to valentines gifts. Rule One: Never ever in a million years give anything that suggests your boyfriend/husband needs improvement. Gifts are supposed make a person feel loved and cherished instead of demoralized. Just as a man should never buy cooking books or make-up for a woman women should avoid gifting gym memberships or even clothes. When it comes to apparel men just dont care as much as women do about clothes. Rule Two: Personal preferences will always help you pick a real winner. Everyone loves knowing that there is a special someone out there who actually truly and profoundly understands them.
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.
