When I was a teenager it seemed that every time a boy gave me roses we promptly broke up. My husband is no exception to this rule. Valentines Day was one of our very first dates as teenagers (today is our 11th Valentines Day together). He kindly brought me a rose and a teddy bear and I returned the favor by participating in an awkward date and then letting him know a few days later that I thought we would really be better as friends. Once we got back together we joked that roses were simply not a good idea. While I occasionally receive flowers from my husband he tends to lean towards varieties other than the standard red rose, which is just fine with me. I love exotic and long lasting orchids, think tulips in spring are festive, and more recently have discovered the joys of succulents.
Excuse the wrinkles, I folded the card and taped it to the bottom of the pot for future reference.
I also decided on a dozen rainbow roses to be sent to my Mother. While I don't love receiving roses I still believe they convey the message of love. I know my parents are missing my son and his little toddler years something fierce. I sent the roses and ordered the enclosed card to be signed to the grandparents from my son. They were thrilled to receive them and said they were fresh and beautiful. I think it is important to note that ProFlowers also offers a 7 day freshness guarantee which I think is fabulous.
While it is too late for Valentines Day, if you are in need of flowers for any other holiday you should take a look at ProFlowers. As a Mom on a budget I know every little bit counts and Proflowers has a discount codes page to help you get a little extra off.
