The unspoken truth about giving flowers for Valentine’s Day

Regardless of whether you give your valentine chocolate, diamonds, or flowers. Flowers on Valentine’s Day means roses.

316If you attempt to get any other flower, you are missing the boat. If you really want to be in the dog house, get carnations.or a romantic dinner, flowers are still a must. But there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  1. If you get roses, they must be red. Any other color is a letdown. Yellow for a friend or pink if you’re not sure where you stand? That’s totally confusing. You really can’t go wrong with red roses.
  2. You must get a dozen roses; it doesn’t matter how ridiculously priced they are. If you give one rose, you look cheap. If you want to save money, don’t get the long-stemmed roses.
  3. If you forget to get flowers or they are sold out, a single, fake rose wrapped in cellophane from 7-11 will be brought up in every fight from here until eternity. Tell her “they won’t die,” and you are digging a bigger hole!

These are just the unspoken rules; I didn’t create them. I’m not speaking for all women (but probably for most of them). Taking the time to plan ahead can save money and more than anything, the sweet sentiment on the little card inside the roses will give major bonus points. Be creative. Tell her something you appreciate about her, and have a Happy Valentine’s Day.
