The right size bouquet for Valentine’s Day
Choosing the right bouquet for your Valentine is not only about finding the perfect flowers. It’s also important to find an arrangement with the right number of flowers. While you want to impress your Valentine, you might not have a bottomless budget. On the other hand, you don’t want to come across as cheap.
The first thing to consider is your budget, of course. This will help you determine what kinds of bouquets you can afford. For example, a bouquet of red roses will usually cost significantly more than a bouquet with the same number of flowers of a different colour or variety. If you are on a tight budget but you don’t want to look cheap, you have few options. You could opt for fewer, elegant blooms or something like a bud arrangement consisting of a single, perfect red rose. Alternatively, you could opt for a fuller bouquet of mixed flowers accompanied with lush foliage.
If you insist on sending red roses, it’s also important to remember that the number of roses you send will send a different message. For example, single red rose sends the message of love at first sight whereas three red roses means I love you. Six red roses are great for taking the relationship to the next level since they mean “I want to be yours”. 12 red roses, on the other hand, is great for asking your Valentine to be yours. This is not only suitable for newer relationships, but also for established and committed ones. It’s almost like renewing your love.
Remember, if you want to save money on Valentine’s Day flowers and you opt for a smaller bouquet, you could always make the gift more impressive by having your florist include something extra. Extras include luxury chocolates, cuddly animals, and balloons, to name a few. Choose something that you know your loved one or secret crush will enjoy.
Another option to keep in mind is the upsize option. Florists usually offer bouquets in at least two or three sizes. This means that you can find a lovely bouquet and, for just a little bit extra, you can spoil your Valentine with an even larger and more impressive bouquet!
