When you think of flowers, passion and romance, Valentine’s Day may be your first thought. And in the middle of summer, who is thinking about that holiday? What you may not know is that the entire month of August has been set aside as National Romance Month – which means you have 30 days to convey your feelings, to use your imagination and to really impress your special someone. To give you some inspiration, the experts at Central Square Florist have put together a list of interesting facts about love and romance that just may set the mood.
Let the Flowers Speak: The red rose is the universal flower of true love and passion. But if you’re ready to try something new and different, there are many flowers that are just as romantic in meaning. For instance, red tulips provide a strong declaration of true love, while the delicate orange blossom whispers of lasting, eternal love. The daisy is a symbol of innocent, young love, likely due to its association with “she loves me, she loves me not.”.
Love is a Great Benefit: Recent studies have shown that men who kiss their sweethearts goodbye when they leave for work actually make more money! Seems that men who show affection are also generally more responsible and reliable, which translates to higher incomes in the workplace. So kiss your spouse goodbye, then spend the extra cash for a romantic gift.
Love Online: According to the latest statistics, approximately 40% of singles are active on online dating sites. In fact, 20% of marriages in the United States are the result of an online relationship. And ladies, take note – 53% of the people online are male, meaning odds are slightly in your favor.
Caffeinated Love: It is estimated that 10,000 marriages a year result from a time honored tradition – having a cup of coffee together.
Delicious and Beautiful: There is a reason why flowers and chocolate are the most popular romantic gift. Flowers have represented romance for thousands of years, and it’s true – chocolate really does contain a substance which stimulates the brain in the same way as a romantic encounter. So check out our romantic flowers collection and pick up some chocolate – she’ll love you for it!
