Valentine's Day is on FRIDAY!
Did you know over 180 Million cards will be exchanged (of which 85% are purchased by women) while men will mostly be in charge of picking up the flowers (73% of flowers bought are by the guys)? In light of these fun stats, we are rounding up some of our favorite cards and some fun (non-rose) florals (with some underlying messages).
We would LOVE to get one of these pretty awesome cards. Anyone need our address? =)
We our big fans of Mental Floss magazine. It's full of amazing facts. We loved the article on Valentine's Day flowers and their meanings (non-rose ideas). We are going to share a few that were featured but be sure to head on over there to see the full article: click here!
Holly & Tarragon: If you really want to surprise your significant other—and have a ring in mind—try a batch of holly, which means you’re offering your beau a lifetime of domestic happiness, and mix it in with some tarragon—this means you have a lasting interest, and you’re sure to impress.
Striped Flowers: If you’re getting paired up with your friend’s ugly cousin or acting as wingman or woman for your roomie, be sly and classy and show up with a bouquet of striped flowers, which means “thanks, but no thanks.”
Cumin and Passionate Flowers: You and your partner have been embracing the free love spirit of the '60s, but now you're finally ready to commit. Let that person know with a bouquet of cumin and passion flowers, which means you’re not only passionate about that person, but ready to stay faithful.
Tansy: Someone dump you on Valentine’s Day? Send the jerk a nice batch of tansy, a less psychotic way to show you are having hostile thoughts than a voodoo doll filled with pins.
Have a love filled week and a sappy and romantic Friday!
