Valentine’s Day Is Coming – Are You Ready?

309Boxes of chocolate, heart-shaped candy, stuffed animals, greeting cards – these items symbolize some of the most popular gifts of Valentine’s Day. However, one of the most practiced traditions on this holiday is, of course, giving your sweetheart a bouquet of gorgeous flowers.

A symbol of love, marriage and romance, the giving of flowers comes from the old-fashioned custom of sending floral bouquets to pass on non-verbal messages. In the 18th century, each flower had a specific meaning attached to it, making it possible for people to have an entire conversation using only flowers. Though significantly less intricate today, romantics still send flowers to express their love and admiration for one another on Valentine’s Day.

The most traditional and easily the most popular Valentine’s Day flower continues to be the rose. Known as the flower of passion and love, the red rose is said to be the favorite flower of Venus, the goddess of love.

We offer a large variety of rose bouquets that are perfect for you’re the dearest person in your life this romantic season. Go the traditional route with a dozen (or two or three dozen) of our premium red roses, or pick out his or her favorite color roses from our variety of colors – pastel, white, pink, lavender, pale peach, butterscotch and more. If your partner loves more than one color, pick out a multicolored bouquet of roses that combines all their favorite shades and hues.
