Hey fellas, we’d like to help you out this Valentine’s Day. We understand the first instinct when it comes to giving flowers for Valentine’s Day is to go for the dozen red roses. After all, the red rose is symbolic for love. Now, we don’t want to sound ungrateful, but often what happens during the love holiday is the local grocery stores, large online floral delivery companies and others, load up on the least expensive, lowest quality red roses available and maximize their return on the second largest flower delivery holiday of the year (Mother’s Day is first). Cha Ching. Unfortunately, this gives the dozen red roses a bit of a bad rap as they usually don’t open, droop pretty quickly and the cheap babies breath is what is left to enjoy.
So, we put things to test with a sampling of Denver’s most discriminating woman and the results are in! When it comes to flower delivery, here’s what women really want for Valentine’s Day. The ladies were provided with these six options and were asked which flowers they would most like delivered to them on Valentine’s Day? Guess which came is very last place? You guessed it, the dozen red roses. Now we’ve classed these beauties up by procuring premium red roses, the Explorer varietal specifically. They bloom BIG and ruffle and we paired them with gunnii eucalyptus which creates a lovely classic bouquet. Even with this, the dozen red roses came in last. The winner was the Love Bomb. The red roses in the Love Bomb are accompanied by red tulips, red ranunculas, fuschia snap dragons and heather, hot pink spray roses, and beautiful greens. Bam, there you go. The red roses are still in there, so don’t be hesitant to venture away from the old standard and see what happens this year.
Regardless of what flowers are delivered this year, your lucky lady will be grateful!
