Valentines Flowers / January 14, 2019 / Alta Gentry
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.
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.
Your imagination is the only limiting factor here! Where should you buy the flowers? You can check out reputable local florists or better (and easier) yet is to go online and order from a reputable online florist. Just be sure you understand what you are getting for the money before actually placing your order and paying. This applies to both local and online. Bouquets ordered online are designed and delivered by local florists with same-day delivery available. Its tough to be romantic when youre on the go working 12 hours a day and juggling mulitple priorities. No wonder that on a romance scale of 1 to 10 only 19% of women rate their boyfriend husband or significant other a 7 or higher. But wait guys; theres help. Even if youre on the go you can boost your romance quotient this Valentines. Heres how.
