When people think of Valentine’s Day, they think of red roses. The truth is not everyone loves red roses, and they are no written rules when it comes to flowers on Valentine’s Day.
There is a variety of choices you can make when choosing flowers for the special occasion. The secret is to try and be as random as possible and go out of the norm and tradition. Surprise your loved one with something that is out of the ordinary and goes for something spontaneous and she will love your new choice.
Selecting the right flowers
Explore other colors
Do not stick to the traditional roses when shopping for Valentine roses. Around Valentine’s Day, most sellers ran out of red roses because everyone thinks that is what is appropriate for the day. You obviously know your loved one better so try and explore other colors that show who they are.
For instance, you can look for other colors like yellow for the friendship you have and orange for desire. You can also look at other colors like pink to show sweetness or white to indicate purity. All these colors have a different meaning that indicates love.
Size of the stem
When shopping for flowers and especially roses take a quick look at the size of the stem. Roses with longer stems are perceived to be of better quality, and they are used for the traditional longer vases. The classic woman will always appreciate a bouquet of longer stemmed roses.
Roses with shorter stems are also good especially if you are shopping for a younger, trendy and free spirited person. When shopping for flowers, the important thing is to understand the recipient.
Tulips are also a good option
When it comes to exploring the different flower options, tulips are also a good option for valentines. There are people who don’t like roses, so tulips are a good option. Tulips are a timeless option that can be used for nearly any occasion.
It is not uncommon to see tulips in weddings, baby showers and any other kind of special events. When buying tulips make sure you go for a bigger bouquet because a small one looks awkward especially when put in a flower vase.
If your loved one is an outgoing and fashion kind of person don’t limit her to the basic roses or tulips. Look for something out of the ordinary like lilies. Lilies are special tropical flowers that anyone with a sense of style will appreciate their uniqueness.
