Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Imelda Chang.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
