The perfect choice if your relationship is still budding, carnations are bright and vibrant. Carnations are a great way to express gratitude, cheerfulness, and good luck. A bouquet of this flower, when done right, can have a powerful impression if you want to impress a date. They are also easy to take care of — simply change out the water frequently and they will be fresh for two to three weeks.

Blue Iris

If you prefer a different color, then by all means, go for it! But we suggest blue for their intense color and contrast between the yellow middle and blue edges. And did you know that in in Greek mythology, the goddess Iris represents the connection between heaven and earth? If your date reminds you of the beauty of a rainbow, contact us and we’ll help create a bouquet that is full of color.

Let your loved one know just how you feel with a beautiful arrangement of tulips. A simple flower on the surface, tulips actually have a lot of meaning in them. Yellow tulips will say that you are hopelessly in love, pink represent caring, and red tulips express true love. Even just a few flowers can create a large impact when presented in the right way.

What better flower to give in the cold months of February than sunflowers? Their bright and cheery face will warm up any space or heart. If you simply adore your Valentine’s Day date, these will make a great choice. Present them wrapped in paper and hand-tied with a red bow to add some romance to the bouquet.

If roses come to mind first, then orchids are probably not far behind on the list. The orchid has a delicate personality, but are deep in exotic beauty. The tall stem with flowers along the length of the stem make orchid arrangements beautiful and sophisticated. If your special someone is a true beauty in your eyes, give them a bouquet that is as just as beautiful and strong.

These flowers are also known as mums, and aren’t a typical Valentine’s Day flower, but one that is still full of meaning and beauty. The flower represents optimism and joy, making them a great choice if you really want to see the relationship last forever. The blooms are full of smaller petals, making a bouquet with mums full and bright. Contact our flower delivery service to ensure you’re ordering the right color, though. Yellow represents that someone has a secret admirer, which may not be the message you want to send.
