If you feel a little extra love in the air this month, it could be because August is National Romance Month. This celebration gives you the ideal excuse to lavish your significant other with unexpected gestures of affection and romance. After all, your love is year-round, so why should you wait until Valentine’s Day to be romantic?
The floral designers at Tobler’s Flowers have been helping would-be Romeos and die-hard romantics in Kansas City for over 100 years – and we have seen a lot of true love during that time. We are here with the ideas, inspiration, and romantic arrangements you’ll need to sweep your sweetheart off their feet.
If you are serious about your romance, there is no better place to begin than with red roses. The king of the romantic s is unparalleled in its ability to convey true love, passion, and commitment. You can choose to send a classic twelve-stem red rose bouquet or dress up roses with other amorous blooms. We love the combination of stargazer lilies, as seen above, and stock with various greenery as seen below.
Did You Know? There are over 900 varieties of red rose, but many are not available commercially.
If you aren’t sure that the red rose is appropriate for your relationship, you have many other lovely choices. If the romance is new, purple roses speak to fascination and excitement, and pink roses signify devotion. You may also choose another altogether – daisies are considered emblematic of new, hopeful love, and carnations can tell your sweetheart that you are excited about the possibilities of the relationship.
Cool Facts About Being in Love
Now that you know flowers are a must when you want to make someone feel special, and when you want to display a romantic gesture, it’s time to take it a step further and show some more romance.
