Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Gladys Hayden
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.
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.
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.
