Say I Love You with the Gift of Flowers

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

We are days away from the most romantic day of the year.  Don't you love the smell of fresh flowers, their aromas are truly filled with love.  I think this is why we traditionally love to give flowers on Valentines day.  Sadly many have moved away from giving flowers due to the cost around this time of year, but hold that thought as I have a solution.  Flowers come in many forms and here are a few wonderful floral gift ideas large and small.  So this Valentines day make sure you say I love you with the gift of flowers. There are some beautiful artificial flower arrangements available.  Yes there are not as fragrant or as delicate as the real thing but they still add a touch of colour to a room.  This vintage inspired wooden trough decorated with milk jars and selection of chrysanthemums and anenomes and even a rose would be a delightful touch to your home.
