“Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms without the aid of the seasons.” – Kahlil Gibran
Love is life… love is every day. It doesn’t need any specific date to express how we feel for someone special, but the introduction of Valentine’s Day has given us a reason to celebrate love – a celebration to appreciate the beloved for making us feel complete. And when it comes to expressing love and gratitude, nothing can come even remotely close to the ethereal beauty and effervescence of flowers.
Are you planning to buy flowers for your beloved on Valentine’s Day, but thoroughly confused on where to begin? Let’s take a look at some quick tips which will help you choose the perfect bouquet for the one you love:
A Dozen Red Roses
When it comes to flowers, it is the red rose which has been always considered the cherished symbol of love. A bouquet of red roses is a sure-shot recipe to melt even the hardest of hearts. Due to their popularity, however, you also need to keep in mind that red roses are going to be extra-expensive on Valentine’s Day. But who said that love comes in cheap, eh?
Are you planning to do something different? Then go for a bouquet full of red, white, pink, and yellow roses.
It doesn’t have to be roses on Valentine’s Day, you know! While most people will opt for the roses (ignoring the skyrocketed price), you can try out something different! How about picking a bunch of freshly cut tulips? Or the gorgeous peonies? You’ll also find flowers like forget-me-nots, azaleas, camellias, and the exotic snowy orchid stems in any reputed flower shop during this time of the year.
The Favorite Color
The best thing about giving flowers to your beloved on this special day is that most of them come in a variety of colors. So, it can be the violet and yellow jasmines, white and yellow daffodils, or blue and pink daisies. You must be aware of your sweetheart’s favorite color; give something keeping that in mind.
Just one word of advise though! Stay away from the potted plants on Valentine’s Day. Oh yes, they are beautiful. In fact, they last longer than the cut flowers. However, it’s more sensible to gift cut flowers. Why? It’s going to be your of saying, “I am thinking with my heart, not with my head.” And on Valentine’s Day, this is what usually matters, isn’t it?
