Valentines Flowers / January 14, 2019 / Kelly Roberson
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.
That would be the tulip. Someone who fits the tulip personality is someone who is totally spontaneous and simply irresistible. Another popular flower is the orchid the perfect flower for someone who is exotic adventurous and mysterious. Daisies are the perfect Valentines flower for the sweet caring sentimental type while a lily bouquet would be the perfect choice for someone who is always sincere. Last but certainly not least give a bouquet of beautiful carnations if the love of your life is someone who is devoted someone you would consider to be your best friend. What is your Valentines floral personality? Once you discover that surprise them with a gorgeous bouquet or arrangement of that bloom. Now thats a sure way to capture the heart of your special someone! But dont despair if you cant figure out the perfect kind of flower to match the personality.
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.
