Valentine’s day is a day of romance, and few things say “romance” louder and clearer than flowers. It may seem trite, but most people still love to receive Valentine floral arrangements as gifts on February 14th. Whether you’re trying to initiate a new romance, liven up an old one, or even just tell a friend how much you care, a gift of flowers is the perfect answer. That’s one of the best things about them – they’re versatile and customizable enough to say exactly what you want to say.
If you have romance on your mind, there are a couple of easy choices to go for. Roses are the traditional flower of love and passion, especially red roses. However, you don’t have to go with red – pink, purple and orange also symbolize romantic feelings. Another favorite choice for this particular occasion is the carnation.
Red carnations represent a sense of admiration, while white carnations symbolize a pure, sweet and innocent love. You don’t need to limit yourself to these common options, however. The object of your affections may appreciate a beautiful arrangement of your own design even more.
For a friendly Valentine’s Day gift, there are also a lot of options. Pale roses, for example, are a symbol of friendship – though not everyone knows this, so you should be careful not to send mixed messages. Another good flower to give to say, “thanks for being a friend” is the chrysanthemum. Again, following your instincts is the best way to go when choosing arrangements for Valentine’s day. A little thought goes a long way.
