Flower Decoration For Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone!  I am excited to introduce you to a guest blogger, Patricia Hall.  She has a love for flowers and wanted to share with my viewers a few tips about flower decorations for Valentine's day!  Oh, and she had some wonderful pictures to share, but I couldn't quite figure out how to get them in in time...Sorry Patty...So despite my lack of computer skills...take it away Patty!

Flower Decoration For Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day can be a very exciting and romantic time of year, but it can also be quite stressful if you’re not properly prepared for the special day. One thing is for certain; you don’t want to end up being the forgetful person who is unprepared for a lover's special day. There are a few very simple things you can do to make your Valentine feel special and loved; but never forget: It’s not the money you spend, but the personal touch you give.

Floral arrangements perfect for a romantic dinner for two

One of the most important things to remember about Valentine’s Day is that it is the busiest day of the year for florists. It doesn’t matter if you decide to order flowers from a shop or flowers by post, you need to make sure that you put your order in a few days in advance, February 9th-13th should guarantee that your partner will receive their flowers on February 14th.

The easiest way to add a personal touch to the flowers you send is to choose flowers that you know your partner loves, or at least incorporate them into the arrangement. Keep in mind some flowers have a reputation of being more romantic than others. Roses and Daisies for example, mean ‘I love you.” Orchids and Lilies portray refinement and beauty. And the Sunflower and Tulip show loyalty and perfect love respectively.

When you call up the florist to order flowers, all you have to do is mention the type of flowers you have in mind and the florist will arrange the perfect bouquet to your specifications. The same thing applies with ordering flowers by post, simply leave your instructions in the comments/instructions box and the perfect arrangement will be delivered just the way you imagined.

Floral arrangements perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner party.

If you are having guests over for a fun and exciting Valentine’s dinner party it’s important to think of a centerpiece for your table. You have to consider that your flowers will be seen from a full 360 degrees, so having a forward facing arrangement simply will not do. When you order flowers make sure they will look great from all angles and not just front the front.

If you are only having a couple friends over, one arrangement in the center of the table should do just fine. If you are hosting a party for more than six people, consider trying multiple short glass vases. The square vase is a fantastic option for a dinner party. If you are considering flowers by post, it’s one of the more affordable arrangements you can get. Not only that, but since the vase is short and squat, it won’t obstruct the guests from seeing each other across the table. All kinds of flowers look great in a square vase, Roses, Peonies, Daisies, and for this occasion specifically, red and white Carnations.

I hate Valentine’s Day!

If you are feeling single and spectacular, or a little blue on Valentine’s Day don’t let February 14th bring you down. Hold off on sending yourself a bouquet to your work desk and try an I Hate Valentine’s Day Party. Many single men and women have decided to host these parties to celebrate their own independence with like-minded friends. Instead of spending the day alone, plan to have your guy or girl friends over to drink champagne, listen to good music, and eat decadent foods that will do nothing to maintain your figure.

When you order flowers for yourself and your single friends, choose things you can enjoy anytime of the year, Tropical Hibiscus, Poppies, Iris, and even Daffodils if you can get your hands on them. When you host an I Hate Valentine’s Day Party, you don’t have to order romantic flowers or arrangements that your partner will like. You could even order some brightly colored corsages for your friends to pin on their lapels while you dine, play games and have a fantastic time. There is no point spending any holiday alone when you can spend it with friends instead.
