February 14, 2018 is Valentine’s Day or in my calendar, “War of the Roses”…pun intended!
This is that one day of the year where the mind set is to give red roses, red roses, red roses. Think lavender, think white, think other variety of flowers too. Love does come in different colors, shapes and sizes…
Look for example at the arrangement shown here. A combination of Blue Bird Lavender Roses with Stargazer lilies. Is it romantic? Of course! More so than red in my opinion…
The media has done a great job to make us “believe” there is nothing more romantic than to give red roses, because they have linked the color red to the meaning of love and passion and Valentine’s Day. But is it really? [Red is also the color of blood and black is related to death. You get the picture…] It is the intent you put into giving flowers and not the color.
The media advertising red as the one true color for Valentine’s day is because the Flower Wholesalers sell red roses at $30.00 the bunch when the everyday wholesale price is $16.00. Can you now understand why the supposed romantic “red rose” is so important on Valentine’s Day and why it is that you pay so much for red roses on this specific day of the year?
So this year make the change in color. I am sure your loved one will agree…[and after reading this post you can understand why I call it “The War of the Roses” …]

Celebrating Spring’s arrival we offer this colorful basket of fresh flowers that is fit to be given on any occasion – Easter, birthdays, anniversary, prompt recovery or just because you want to appreciate someone for their friendship and love.
The apricot color “Cuenca” rose really pops out between the lavender daisies, yellow aster and purple alstroemeria flowers and draws your eyes towards it acting as a focal point.
The usual tendencies used in the colors of spring lean towards the pastel tones but I like to “break” the standards and combine with bolder tones like the deeper purple of the alstroemeria and the brightness of the of the Cuenca rose instead of a light peach.
You do not necessarily need a special holiday to give a gift basket. A gift basket can be made and customized for family, friends or co-workers just to express how much you appreciate them.
