Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Hester Higgins
For deliveries to the home anytime Feb. 11 through 14 is fine. Keep in mind that with flowers its often a good idea to request delivery a day early just in case the recipient is not home when your gift first arrives. Ordering online? Youll find florist designed and delivered bouquets and direct-shipped unarranged flowers in a box. Both options have advantages. Whats best for your Valentine? Flowers designed and delivered in water by local florists are ready to be enjoyed and often make the best overall impression. So florist delivery of arranged flowers should usually be your first choice for gifts to the workplace or anyone who may not want to arrange their own flowers. For gifts to the home and those who may enjoy placing their flowers in a vase direct-shipped roses lilies tulips and mixed bouquets offer an excellent value and the added convenience of online delivery tracking.
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.
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.
