Granted, Valentine’s Day isn’t until February 14th, which is a little less than a month away, but we’re sure that some of you devoted husbands and boyfriends out there are already thinking about your plans. Right about now is when most people suggest that you start calling up restaurants and setting up reservations for your romantic dinner for two – especially with Valentine’s Day landing on a Friday this year. So once your name is taken down by the maître d‘, we’re sure that thoughts of flowers and other gifts are not far from the front of your mind.
So now comes the hard part – deciding what to buy and how to deliver them; allow us to help:
Picking the Flowers – Almost every woman has a favorite flower. While she may love daisies however, it may be good idea to save those for a birthday or other occasion. Valentine’s Day is all about romance and love and passion; the flowers that you choose should reflect that. Nine times out of ten, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful arrangement of red roses. Regardless of how long you’ve been together, roses will always work, and red is considered to be one of the most passionate colors. You can always choose to mix it up a bit and incorporate some other gorgeous blooms in various colors, but always try to incorporate the red roses in there somewhere.
Ordering Tips – Valentine’s Day is one of the absolute biggest days for florists all over the country. Everyone wants to show their affection with a beautiful bouquet, so be sure to place your order well in advance. About a week or two before the big day, stop into your local floral shop, pick up the phone, or visit the Carriage Flowers website to place your order. You may also want to request that your arrangement be delivered before 10am so that they will likely make it to their destination by 11am. Make sure that you call one or two days prior to Valentine’s Day to confirm your order, as well.
Where to Have Them Delivered – Her place of employment. Hands down, every single time the answer to this question is her place of employment. On a wonderful day like Valentine’s Day, your special lady is going to want to show off the fact that she actually has someone to celebrate with. By having the arrangement delivered to her office, she will undoubtedly feel amazing. Just make sure that your delivery is set prior to lunch. This way everyone will see them before taking off to grab a quick bite, and your lady won’t get anxious and disappointed watching other women get their flowers early in the day, when hers don’t show up until after 3pm.
