Valentine’s Day is a popular day for first dates – and if it works out, the fact that your first date was on the most romantic day of the year is a great story! Flowers are a given on this day, but you don’t want to look too presumptuous, so we recommend tulips or daisies in bright colors. Both of these flowers represent the hope and optimism of a first date.
Did You Know? Over 224 million roses are cultivated specifically to meet the demand on Valentine’s Day annually.
If you love roses but want something a little different than the tradition rose bouquet. look for a creative design like a compact rose cube; or use the red roses interspersed with other bloom, such as alstroemeria, lilies, or hydrangea. If you are having flowers delivered to a home or office, a decorative vase or cube is perfect. A loose bouquet may be more appropriate if you are handing the flowers to them personally.
Of course, the reigning champion of Valentine’s Day is the long-stemmed red rose, as they represent over 50% of the flowers sold on this romantic holiday.
