Sometimes Roses Just Aren't Enough



The month of love is here. February 14th, the day that most women and a few men look forward to. It's the day that restaurants are booked to capacity, the florists gets tons of orders and maybe one of the only day that men go shopping. Why? Because it's Valentine's Day! Personally I don't particularly care for flowers but it sure does look great on my table and it shows that I was thought about. However, sometimes roses just aren't enough and you want to go a little extra. I was actually talking to a girlfriend of mine who mentioned that while she loved flowers, she would also love a little extra so I decided to browse online looking for options. I happened upon Fresh Flowers. While they are an online florist based in Australia they also cater to customers abroad.



I was truly intrigued by their variety and even their range. There are flowers for every occasion including the Chinese New Year which will be here very shortly. Flowers for weddings, your Baby's New Arrival, Thank You or just a simple Thinking of You. Another thing that I truly loved while browsing their site was their Florist Pick. Have you ever been stumped as to what to get in terms of flowers? Well leave it up to them and they'll hand pick a beautiful bouquet just for you, just for the occasion. That will surely take the worry out of it.

I even took the time out to read all the little tips that were offered. For example these were just a few tips we learned while browsing on how to make your Valentine's Day flowers last longer. Did you know that you actually need to give your flowers plant food to keep them fresh and healthy longer? Or that if you added a few drops of bleach to your water it will keep your water clean? There are lots of info on their site because it's not all about getting you the freshest and best flowers available, but also learning how to choose and take care of your flowers when you do received them.


What about the color of your roses? Do you know what the color of each rose mean? We all know that red stands for love and romance which makes them the most popular color for Valentine's Day, but what does the other colors mean?

White roses (my favorite color) embraces new beginnings and losses making them perfect for weddings and memorials.


Pink roses are considered the multi-purpose rose and can be given for any occasion. They show love and appreciation and are perfect to give to family members, friends, and even your significant other as a sign of love.

Orange roses are the perfect roses for those passionate relationship since they are all about passion.

Yellow roses are all about friendship. They are the perfect ones to send as thank you's to friends and coworkers.

However they took the gifting of roses even further with Fresh Flowers’ Valentines Day flower selections. If you want to make your Valentine day extra special, nothing says I Love You like a box of roses complete with chocolate and a bottle of champagne, in this case Moët and Chandon which I just absolutely adore. Your significant other will just love you even more. I'm already hinting at this for my Valentine's Day.

So if you're still on the search for the perfect bouquet with something extra check out FreshFlowers.com.au. I'm so happy I found them and you will be too!

  7. These are really beautiful! I'm intrigued by the meaning of their colors - in my culture, yellow roses mean jealousy and I was surprised to see it's about friendship here! :)

    1. That sure is something new although personally I don't think that people send roses because they are jealous. :)

  10. I might be the only one who doesn't appreciate roses. Don't get me wrong my favourite bush in the garden is my rose bush but I would rather an exotic flower that we can't grow here. I love chocolates though... I am all over a decent box of chocolate!

    1. Oh I love roses myself since I have a rose bush in my garden as well but I'm not averse to getting some along with some chocolate and champagne.

  11. I have never gotten any flowers, ever, and that is okay with me! They are beautiful, don't get me wrong, and I would love it if someone sent them but I'm so terrible with plants and I never know what to do with them! I'll take the chocolate and champagne too! lol :)

    1. Maybe this might just be your year to get some. You need to start throwing some hints around. :)

  12. I love the explanation of the different flower colors. And who says you have to wait for someone to give you flowers... go buy them yourself if they make you happy!

    1. I totally agree Tonya. Why wait on someone to make us happy when we can make our own selves happy.

  13. Oh - I love fresh cut flowers! Plants, too. My favorite color roses are the yellow ones.

    1. The yellow roses are beautiful but mine would have to be pink and white combined together.

  14. I absolutely love roses - I love the classic long stem red roses. Any fresh flowers make me happy though. Something that lasts a little longer than the chocolate in my house :-)

    1. I'm with you. Flowers always last a lot longer than chocolate here too.

    1. I do agree. I'm kinda tired of just roses and would love to get something extra.

  17. I love the different colored roses. Unfortunately, I am highly allergic to most flowers. For me tulips work best, plus they are also my favorite.

    1. The good thing about Fresh Flowers is that they also have tulips so you might want to give them a try.

  18. What great idea to combine the flowers (you can't never go wrong with flowers) with something extra that will make that gift and that moment memorable

    ReplyDelete
  19. Roses actually aren't my favorite of the flowers. I prefer lilies because I love watching them open up with time. My husband even got me an entire bouquet of them once because he knew I would enjoy watching them open. (He purposely looked for a bouquet with unopened ones!) This sounds like a great site to help with flower needs!

    1. Oh you're like me. I just LOVE lilies myself. I got some just recently and watching them open was the highlight of getting them.

  20. These are so pretty! Any girl would be lucky to receive these.

  25. Isn't it amazing the services that are available online now? Having family overseas I love that I can get cards, flowers and gifts sent direct to their door without paying an extortionate shipping charge!

    1. Oh I totally agree. I also have family who aren't close by and being able to ship things to them from anywhere sure is great.

  26. I wish my husband would get me this. Who wouldn't want roses, champagne and chocolate? They sure do go hand in hand.
