Why should you give flowers on Valentines day?

Well of course we are biased why we should give flowers, but Tradition suggests –

It is traditionally known as the most Romantic Day of the Year February 14th. Celebrating love and relationships by giving gifts big or small, to show and express emotions of gratitude, respect and love for each other. 


It is said the first Valentines Day was celebrated in 496 ( last time I received flowers ) !!!!

Roses are traditionally the flower of Valentines Day, the flower of Passion & Love, but through the years we find clients are choosing other choices of flowers, like Scented Oriental Lilies, Tulips, Roses of Various colours, Gerbera, Carnations etc.

People like choice, to choose a selection of flowers, bouquets to include Roses, but with the variation of other flowers.  The lifespan of the Rose would be less than that for example of

  • Oriental Lily
  • Carnation
  • Gerbera flower
  • Blooms
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Alstromeria
  • Alliums
  • Orchids

So therefore it is nice and suggested to choose a mix of flowers, not just for longevity but for a choice of flower type. Not everybody loves Roses, but when a client likes to stay with traditional, we can offer both.
