Ordering flowers for Valentine’s Day
Published: Monday 23 January 2017
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, for those who are unsure, it always falls on February 14.
Sending flowers is simply a must at Valentine’s Day. It is just as necessary as Christmas tree at Christmas, or chocolate eggs at Easter. Moreover, your partner will expect flowers on the day, especially when their friends will be receiving flowers at work, or posting their bouquets on social media.
So, a simple guide to buying flowers at Valentine’s Day: most importantly, order early. If you place your order with a florist a week earlier, they will be able to source the best blooms for you. Avoid supermarket, or service station flowers, your partner will be able to tell by their inferior quality of flowers and wrapping, besides they will not last as well as flowers from a real flower shop.
If you ordered your flowers from a florist early, pick them up a day before, hide them overnight in a cool place and surprise your loved one with them early in the morning. Alternatively, arrange for the flowers to be delivered to your partner at work. It is always a great sign when the courier brings flowers to the office. Your partner will be able to gloat about what a great lover you are. Also you do not want her/him to be the only one in the office not to receive flowers.
As to which flowers to buy/send, red roses are the traditional sign of love, romance and passion, you cannot go wrong with a bunch of dozen red roses. If you feel more adventurous, you can try a mixed bouquet, or a bunch of lillies.
Whatever you decide to buy/send, remember to always use a real florist and avoid the biggest mistake that anyone can make on Valentine’s Day: never forget to buy flowers.
