Valentine's Day Flower Snob
I think the most exciting part of Valentine’s Day are the flowers. It can also be the most disappointing part if they are ugly. I know what some of you are thinking, “Just be happy that you got flowers.” Umm…No. Tight long stem red roses with baby's breath are not my idea of happiness. If someone knows you well enough to celebrate Valentine’s Day with you, then they should know what you like and to put a little effort into it. If I see the letters FTD on the bouquet being delivered, I’m not signing for them. Don’t get me wrong and think I am “materialistic” and “pretentious” like that twitter follower said I was. It’s not about the dollar amount spent; it’s about the time and effort spent. If you go to the grocery store last minute and buy the flowers, I hope your girlfriend breaks up with you. You need to put some thought into it. What are the recipient's favorite colors? What kind of flowers would look best in the house? What kind of vase best reflects the recipient's style? As usual, let’s look at some good examples of Valentine’s Day bouquets and then the fun part… Ugly bouquets.
