Valentine's Day Flowers
On the 14th February every year millions of loved up people across the globe celebrate Valentine's Day, the one day of the year dedicated to romance and expressions of love. Couples celebrate Valentine's Day by exchanging gifts and tokens of their affection and as well as cards one of the gifts most traditionally given on Valentine's Day is flowers.
As we are all more than well aware, long stemmed red roses are the most traditional flower to be given by lovers on Valentine's Day. For hundreds and hundreds of years red roses have been the flowers which most completely convey a message of passion, love and romance and it is for this reason roses are often part of wedding bouquets as well as Valentine's Day gifts. Therefore, if you are a true romantic and have been completely swept off your feet by those warm and fuzzy feelings in your tummy, a bunch of long stem red roses really is the only way to go. Red roses are also a good idea if you and your partner are celebrating your first Valentine's Day together, as they convey a sense of being serious about the relationship and having deep romantic feelings for the other person. Having said that, red roses might best be avoided if your relationship is in its very early stages - you don't want to come across too strong!
Giving your loved one a bunch of long stemmed red roses is also a nice gesture if you have been together for many years and Valentine's Day has become a bit of a non event for both of you. Such a romantic gesture will remind your partner just how much you do love them and are sure to bring a little romance back into your relationship!
If you are fairly traditional but are a little bored with the traditional red roses, then why not buy your loved one a bunch of roses in a different colour? Roses of any colour still convey a general sense of love and romance and you may even impress your lover with your originality by stepping away from the traditional, unimaginative red.
Whilst roses are the traditional flower given on Valentine's Day there is no rule to say that these are the only flowers it is appropriate to give, so don't be afraid of going for something a little different. If you know that your lover particularly loves lilies, for example, why not opt for a bunch of these. Equally your partner might like white flowers much more than red or pink ones and in this case you'd be much better off buying a bunch of white blooms. Furthermore, it might be possible to create a bouquet that really captures your partner's personality; quirky girls, for example, might prefer a bunch of really exotic flowers to a bouquet of roses.
If you wish to put in a little extra effort and get your partner a really special bouquet designed exclusively for them, the best thing you can do by far is to have a little chat with your florist. If you have a few ideas of your own (eg. a favourite colour or a particular flower you want to include) then your florist will be able to work from this, suggesting colours, flowers and arrangements that you would never have come up with on your own.
So when the 14th February rolls around this year, do not forget to show your partner how much you love them with a beautiful bouquet of flowers!
