Red roses are the unmistakable expression of absolute true love. Stunning and classic, red roses convey the deepest emotions of a relationship and is a time-honored way to say “I love you.” If you receive red roses, it is clear you have a special relationship.
Red roses come in a variety of vibrant shades. Combining them creates a powerful display of love. The fragrant aroma of red roses will make this Valentine’s Day one they will never forget. For a more modern romantic design, consider including other red-hue Valentine’s blooms such as Asiatic lilies and orchids.
White, the shade of purity and innocence, is generally associated with fresh beginnings. Sending white blossoms demonstrates the joy of starting something new, and it doesn’t have to be traditional white roses in a vase. White daisies create a fun and playful way to represent innocence and lightheartedness on Valentine’s Day.
Love at First Sight
Make no mistake about it, love can be felt with the slightest glance across the room. The gentle beauty of lavender, especially with a lavender rose, has long been known to correspond to that “butterflies in the stomach” feeling that cannot be denied. This purple hue sends a message of enchanted love sure to impress your significant other.
Not every Valentine’s Day arrangement has to focus on roses. The Aster bloom comes from the Greek word for star. Legend has it that the goddess Astraea looked down on earth from the sky and wept when she saw that there were no stars on earth. Her tears became the Aster flower. This flower represents daintiness and small beginnings making it an appropriate choice for the early stages of love that expresses romantic admiration in a subtle way.
Any type of arrangement that is filled with bright oranges and golds creates passion, fire, enthusiasm, and desire. If she (or he) is just not into roses, consider bold colored tulips as the perfect gift. FTD can send them either as a blooming plant or floral arrangement. Tulips are always greeted with excitement and are one of the most unique blooms to send or receive.
