The choice is up to you. There are other common sense guidelines when sending flowers. Order early. Be sure you have the recipients complete delivery address and phone. And dont be a too frugal. A few dollars extra can make a big difference with flowers. But theres one tip from smart Romeos thats the most important of all. No matter what flowers you send for Valentines Day remember to include a note that says "I Love You!" Those three words can make any Valentines bouquet the most beautiful flowers in the world. The one myth about Valentines Day that needs busting is that women dont buy Valentine gifts for their significant other. There is absolutely no amount of truth to support this and all women crave blogs and articles alike in hopes that something will help them find romantic gifts for their boyfriend/ husband.
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.
We also know that flowers are a pretty good way to get out of the doghouse. And theres no question that a thoughtful bouquet for Valentines Day can send just the right message of love friendship infatuation or romance. But most of us dont know a posy from a pansy. Fortunately we dont have to be floral experts to make a heart bloom this Valentines. All we need is a little common sense. Sending Roses? Theyre not all created equal. Roses vary widely by stem length blossom size color quality and price. Thats right guys roses are not always red. So consult a florist you trust about the best available colors and quality options. Red is still the most popular color at Valentines but many women surveyed prefer shades of pink peach orange lavender and other more feminine hues. And all roses symbolize love.
