Caring For Your Valentine’s Day Bouquet


Flowers are a wonderful gift, especially on Valentine’s Day! Here are some tips that will make your flowers last longer.

Receiving Your Blooms
When first receiving your bouquet, make sure to remove any plastic as soon as possible. Put your flowers in a vase full of water if they aren’t already in one!

Location, Location, Location
You want to place your fresh flowers in an area that is away from drafts and extreme temperatures. Don’t place them in direct sunlight, like on a windowsill, where the sun hits them full blast. Also, avoid places where flowers can contact ethylene gas (emitted from cigarettes and fruit).

Bloom Care
Be sure to remove dead or wilting leaves and stems. Also, change water regularly, especially when it starts getting cloudy.

Florist’s Orders
If your florist added food or preservative packets for your arrangement, make sure to read the directions and use accordingly.

Home Remedies
There are many tips and tricks you can do to keep your flowers fresh longer. Adding sugar or using hairspray can be used to preserve your arrangement for longer enjoyment. Also, adding vodka, apple cider vinegar, or even a copper penny can help against bacteria. Call your local florist to determine which trick works best for your bouquet.

Valentine’s Day flowers are one of the best gifts to receive. Follow these simple tips and enjoy them even after Valentine’s Day! Check back with the Bloomin’ Blog for more great tips and tricks.

 

 

 

 

Get Colorful This Valentine’s Day

Get Colorful

Think Valentine’s Day is all about the red and pink? Well, it doesn’t have to be! Surprise your special someone with beautiful fresh-cut flowers in unexpected colors that will really knock ’em for a loop.

Let’s assume if you found this article you have already had the brilliant idea to send your sweetheart some flowers. Congratulations! You are going to make someone very happy because that’s what flowers do. Sending V-Day flowers should be fun and exciting so don’t think plain red roses are your only choice. I mean, if those are her favorite, then by all means, don’t disappoint. But maybe she likes variety. Maybe she sees herself a trend-setter. Maybe she just likes surprises!

If she doesn’t have her heart set on something specific, a colorful expertly arranged bouquet of unique flowers might be just the ticket to her heart this year. Your local florist can help!

Ask A Florist For Something Special

Shopping online for flowers is a great tool for finding something you are looking for. And that’s the way of savvy tech folks after all. Add to cart and you are done! But for something extra special, go a step further. Talk to your florist in person or on the phone. Why? Because florists can tell you what flowers they have in stock right now, what is looking the freshest and brightest and tell you about more unusual varieties that might not be listed online. So you’ll probably be spending the same amount of money but are more likely to get something as unique as your love for your main squeeze.

Link Color to a Memory

Valentine’s Day is about showing someone you care. Guys often lament they don’t know what girls want but a sure-fire way to impress a lady is to give a gift that shows that you notice things about her. This goes beyond knowing her favorite color, although that is certainly not a bad choice if you know it already. (Don’t ask. Really. Not this close to the holiday. Dead giveaway, man.) Think of a detail about your favorite person. This is really easier than it sounds.

It could be  her favorite sweater. Or a bright colored dress you remember her wearing last summer. Did she drag you shopping and model some crazy outfit or shoes that she just loved. This is valuable information! Pick flowers in one of those colors. On the card, you can mention the memory if you want – “For you on Valentine’s Day. These flowers reminded me of how beautiful you look in your purple dress.” Or leave her guessing for a little added mystery.

Amethyst TulipsFor Your Radiant Love

Want a color that is charming with a spark of imagination? One that inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health? These are all qualities claimed by Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s official color of the year. By picking flowers in this hue you will be exactly on trend for the season and any fashion lover or design-conscious girl will notice!

Pick Something Unexpected!

Go for a different design that includes a bright vase, cascading blooms or twisting vines. Feathers, beads, glitter, natural seed pods and hand-sculpted wire picks are some more exciting elements that can be added to any arrangement for more color and texture.  If you haven’t seen it before she probably hasn’t either! And with a talented florist at the helm you can’t go wrong.

While there is nothing at all wrong with more traditional red and pink fare,  you might be looking to mix it up for a real surprise. Different colors like vibrant yellows, perfect peaches, passionate purples, delicious oranges, snappy greens and more will make this Valentine’s Day pop!

Filled with Love Eternally Yours

Valentine’s Day Card Poems

1. Cobalt blue, your sparkling eyes

have set my heart a racin’.

Ne’er will be seen our love’s demise,

‘Tis forever that I’m chasin’.

 

2. This rose of dark and crimson hue

is lovely, stark and sweet,

And yet it pales compared to you

unable to compete.

 

3. My love for you like yours for me

is vibrant, strong and pure.

These chocolates may not last the week,

but our affection will endure

 

4. No flower, though the blooms are lovely,

can with you compare.

neither the rose, the iris nor the lily,

can hold to you a prayer.

 

5. Tonight we’ll celebrate our love,

we’ll dine and dip while dancing.

A passionate kiss or variation thereof,

will find our passion advancing.
