How to Be Extra Romantic During National Romance Month

Why is August the National Romance Month?

You may not have been aware that August is National Romance Month, and Romance Awareness Day is August 14th. Why is romance month in August as opposed to February, you may be wondering? Well, that’s because August is six months away from Valentine’s Day, making August the perfect time to check in on your relationship. Everyone is all about showing the love on Valentine’s Day, which is why National Romance Month serves as a reminder that love and romance should be celebrated throughout the year, and not just on Valentine’s Day.

How to Observe National Romance Month

August is a relatively quiet month as summer activities are beginning to wind down, and the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holidays are still a ways off. So use this time to take a moment, slow down, and remember to appreciate your partner and celebrate the closeness you have with each other. Simply do this by making it a point to be more romantic and rejoice in your love and strong bonds. For great tips and ideas on showing more romance, the flower experts at Welke’s House of Roses share top romantic ideas and flowers to keep your love burning bright.

Top 5 Ways to Celebrate Romance Month

Bring Home a Bouquet of Gorgeous, Fresh Flowers

There’s nothing better than giving someone beautiful flowers to show how much you love them. Red roses, in particular, are a great choice because they symbolize love, passion, and desire. The color red, in general, represents love, so you can select other red blooms such as Peruvian lilies, mums, daisies, poppies, or calla lilies. Sprinkle in several white flowers like gardenias, stargazer lilies, and anemones for a truly stunning and fragrant bouquet.

Plan a Weekend Away

Create memories by going on a quick getaway to someplace new. A change of scenery does wonders for reigniting passion and bringing people closer together.

See a Live Band

Get moving to a great cover band that plays your favorite songs or discover new music together. Physical activities like dancing produce “feel good” endorphins which increase your passion for one another.

Do Something Adventurous

Get the adrenaline flowing and ignite passion with adventurous activities like white water rafting, riding roller coasters, or skydiving.

Relax by a Fire

Have a cuddle session in front of a roaring fireplace, or bask in the warmth and beauty of a romantic outdoor bonfire just enjoying each other’s company.

Stay Connected With Romantic Gestures

Making it a point to connect with your partner by adding more romance will only strengthen your relationship. Whether you’ve been together 5 years or 50 years, keeping the embers of love burning with romance is essential. And, it’s easy! Romantic gestures don’t always have to be big, as small displays of love are just as important.

Small Romantic Gestures that Make a BIG Impact:

  • Holding hands
  • Leaving love notes
  • Watching a movie together
  • Checking in with each other during the day
  • A daily “good morning” kiss
  • Saying “good night” every night
  • A shoulder rub
  • Flowers “just because”

Embrace Romance

Embrace romance and celebrate it – not just during romantic holidays but all year round. Being romantic is about expressing your love and dedication to someone in a thoughtful and affectionate manner. Grand romantic gestures are always a boon to a relationship and are essential to maintaining passion. Small romantic gestures performed more frequently, though, are just as, if not more, important. And one of the simplest yet sincere and welcome romantic gestures is giving your loved one flowers. Romance and flowers go hand in hand.
