Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Blanche Durham
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.
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.
Whats the best way for a man to make a lasting impression on a woman? Research shows that the answer to making a memorable impact is right under his nose -- with flowers. Ninety-two percent of women can remember the last time they received flowers and 89% agree that receiving flowers makes them feel special. "If the way to a mans heart is through his stomach then the pathway to a womans heart is through her other senses" says Rebecca Cole of Discovery Channels Surprise By Design. "Flowers are a sensual gift that can express any emotion so simply - with just a little knowledge and a phone call to your florist." And flowers given for no special reason may be the most special of all. So light a fire with flowers this Valentines. And keep it burning with a surprise gift of flowers anytime throughout the year.
