When you think of Valentine’s Day, what comes to mind? Is it vision of hearts and Cupid, or maybe a bunch of roses and chocolates? Or perhaps breakfast in bed or a romantic, candle-lit dinner? If you chose any of the above, then you have a very traditional look on the holiday. However, there are times that we want to shake things up and try something a little different, and there is no better way to do that than with Valentine’s Day flowers. Join us today, as we cover some non-traditional flowers that still convey the message that a rose would do for that special someone in your life! Tulips: No matter what flowers your special someone likes, we can almost guarantee that they will like the tulip. These flowers are a national symbol in the Netherlands, and for good reason. Not only are they beautiful, but the message that they convey is right up there with the rose. For example, a red tulip says that “perfect love,” while a pink tulip signifies a fresh beginning. If you’re currently in a little bit of a rough patch, then some white tulips may be the ace up your sleeve, as they often represent forgiveness. Overall, this is a very versatile flower that would be perfect to give this February! Sunflowers: Sunflowers are often glanced over for a Valentine’s Day flower, although there is no reason that they should be. These flowers represent a cheering glow, and comes with hues of warmth and adoration. In many instances of literature, these flowers convey happiness and good feelings, which can be almost synonymous with that special someone in your life. Sunflowers are nothing short of a perfect Valentine’s Day flower for the light in your life. Carnations: Not just a prom flower or something out of the 50’s, carnations come with a heft meaning hidden behind their puffy appearance. At the heart of it, a carnation symbolizes a deep love and intense fascination. In addition, a pink carnation represents a mother’s undying love. Red, like most other flowers, tells a story of deep love and admiration. All in all, you can never go wrong with a carnation, and their friendly-prices means that you can really spoil that someone with them without breaking your wallet. Just because you think of roses when you think of Valentine’s Day does not mean that you have to stick with them this holiday. Feel free to change it up a bit—we promise that your special someone will appreciate the gesture. Come on in today to see what we can do for you, or to order your Valentine’s Day arrangements!
