February may have Valentine’s Day, but did you know that the entire month of August is dedicated to romance? We think it comes at exactly the right time, too – the summer was made for love! This is the time for spontaneous gestures, whimsical ideas, and expressing the joy of being in love – from flowers to chocolate and much more. The team at Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts helps people to convey their affection all year round, and we have the romantic bouquets and arrangements that will set the mood for National Romance Month.
Flowers of Love: Everyone recognizes that red roses are the quintessential ambassador of romance, but you may not know that other flowers carry meaning for romance as well. For instance, pink roses represent a sweet, affectionate love, daisies signify young love, and peonies are representative of marital bliss.
In honor of National Romance Month, here are just a few ideas for infusing romance into your everyday routine. You may even find that you love surprising your sweetheart so much, it becomes a year-round habit.
* Leave love notes around the house, in his lunch, on her car. Just a few words will mean so much.
* Turn off the electronics for the evening – as a matter of fact, turn off the power! Play board games by candlelight and get reacquainted.
* Get home early from work and set up an intimate “happy hour” for you both to unwind after a long day.
* Pack a picnic on a Saturday morning. Tell her that you need her to run errands with you, and then head off to a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy some time together. Don’t forget the flowers!
Of course, nothing says “I love you” more beautifully than a lavish bouquet of flowers. At Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts, we have been helping people to celebrate romance for nearly 40 years. Come in to speak with one of our designers, or browse our online collection. But don’t let August go by without trying a few new romantic ideas, and adding a few sparks into your summer.
