Love is in the air in Nashville, signaling that National Romance Month is upon us. Sitting right between Valentine’s Day and the romance of the holidays, this observance expresses all the whimsy, fun, and spontaneity of love in the summertime and gives us the chance to shower our loved one with unexpected gifts of affection all month long. At Rose Hill Florist, we understand that romance is not confined to any season or holiday because we help our customers to express love all year round.
Which Flowers to Choose? There is no disputing the fact that the red rose is the king of romantic florals. Representing true love, passion, and devotion, this classic beauty needs no explanation to accompany it. However, there are other roses that hold their own in the romantic arena – for instance, pink roses represent adoring love; white roses represent purity and are very often chosen for wedding florals, and orange roses are brimming over with passion and excitement.
Can Daisies Predict Love? The popular game of whimsy and hope – “she loves me, she loves me not” – may have been the inspiration for the daisy’s position as ambassador for hopeful, new love.
Some Other Flowers You May Wish to Consider: Carnations represent the fascination that accompanies love and romance, with color meanings similar to those of roses – white for pure love and red for true romantic love. If your marriage is still thriving after many years, you may wish to create a bouquet of peonies and ivy for your true love – they symbolize marital bliss and faithfulness in marriage.
Romantic Gestures Your SO Will Love
Now that you know the significance of particular flowers and their color, it’s time to put it all into action. Flowers are, of course, the best romantic gesture, but there are other actions you can take to amplify the romance level in your relationship. For example, whisk them away on a surprise romantic getaway in a city you’ve never been in before; take them for an unforgettable night on the town that includes fancy restaurants, a show, and dancing; do something adventurous together such as hiking, paddle boarding, or skydiving, or just cozy up at home with a gourmet meal and alone time in front of a warm fire.
Another way to maintain the romance in your relationship is to make daily romantic gestures that go a long way to building a strong, loving bond between a couple. For example,
- Hold hands
- Leave love notes
- Put a fresh flower into a bedside vase daily or weekly
- Watch a movie together
- Check in with each other during the day
- Give a daily “good morning” kiss
- Say “good night” every night
- Provide shoulder rubs regularly
- Give them flowers “just because”
