I am often asked by male readers; “How do I make sure that my Valentine’s Flowers are perfect?” Actually, it’s quite easy. The first rule is to order your flowers early. Your professional florist takes personal pride in their designs and wants every arrangement to be perfect, but you must give them time to plan and schedule. Second, if you are having flowers delivered to your sweetheart; make sure that you know her complete address. You may know that she lives in the third white house on Elm Street after you turn off of Main Street or that she works in the ABC Building. However, your florist needs the exact address. As a professional florist, here is nothing more disappointing than being unable to find the recipient of a beautiful arrangement, knowing how much the gift means to both sweethearts. Third, be creative, there are many designs to choose from and you don’t have to buy the same standard dozen roses as everyone else.
My final tip to assure that your Valentine’s Day flowers are perfect and meaningful is that you include a personal love note for your sweetheart, written in your own hand if possible. Yes, we girls love to receive flowers, but a personal love note with the flowers, that makes the gift “perfect”.
