Sending Valentines Day Flowers Can Make A Difference

Jan 30, 2008
This is a story that I heard recently about how important sending Valentine's Day flowers can be:

"Not too long ago, I would have made the argument that ladies do not send flowers to gentlemen. However I opted to send flowers to my husband for a whimsical Valentine's Day celebration. Prior to this my husband had never been the recipient of flowers from a woman. To celebrate Valentine's Day my husband's plan was to go out for an exclusive dinner. My plan was to show my husband how much I appreciate sharing life's ups and downs with him by doing something memorable and romantic.

A sudden snowstorm dropped a foot of snow on us that night and the next morning. He became violently ill with a stomach virus. His plans for a romantic dinner were out the window. My plans for a treasure hunt adventure that ended in a passionate kiss were cancelled abruptly. The only aspect of Valentine's Day that we celebrated that evening were the flowers I sent him."

When a person chooses to send flowers to another, that individual may have several motives. Some persons might elect to make this gesture out of friendship or caring or sympathy. Some may choose to do this to celebrate an important event, such as a job promotion, or to acknowledge an accomplishment, such as performing in a music recital.

Celebrations like Mother's Day and birthdays, are a good reason to send spring flowers. Another option is to send a favorite type of posy. The recipient's preferred hue or color theme is an excellent way to decide what special flowers for spring would be most appropriate. There are many spring flowers to choose from, including daisies, crocuses, cherry blossoms, and tulips.

You can send flowers to someone in many different ways. You can buy flowers with a credit card online or via phone. You can also buy them in person at a florist; if you do, either you or the florist can deliver them. All of these are great ways to send flowers.

And yes, some people still send flowers for more sentimental reasons. In Victorian times, each bloom had a meaning, and some flowers had several meanings. For example, azaleas indicated abundance, while irises were the symbols of inspiration. Not all flowers had positive meanings, however. For instance, offering lavender indicated distrust, while a striped carnation meant rejection.

It is recommended that you ask some questions or do some research before sending flowers. This is especially true if you are sending them to a loved one or for a special occasion. Flowers can speak meanings to people that you might not know about.
