The hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year’s is now over. But, just when you feel like you are getting back into the swing of things, you remember about Valentine’s Day.
For Valentine’s Day we often think of many different things. The color pink, heart shaped paper valentines, cherubs, flowers and many more things. A little research suggests that flowers have been given on Valentine’s Day for several hundred years, whether to ward off evil spirits by surrounding the loved one in a lovely scent, to sending secret messages that are tied to each flower. For instance it is said that daisies indicate both beauty and purity while the red rose signifies love. It is said that whole bouquets would be sent in ancient times and would translate an entire message to the recipient with out a word written down.
While, there is much debate on why flowers tend to be the most popular gift given on Valentine’s Day, there is no denying that it is so. Red roses have long been the traditional favorite but, in recent years with the advancement in shipping etc. couples are able to give and receive just about any flower no matter if it is currently in season nearby or not.
A very popular summertime flower is the always joyful looking sunflower. While we do not sell flowers here at American Stationery, we certainly have our share of products with a floral design.
