1800flowers for all occasions

When we think about flowers, it's usually in the happy sense. Flowers are associated with birthday, anniversaries, weddings etc.

What we often forget is that they are also associated with sorrow. You give flowers to express sympathy, condolences etc. They're left at graves, used in funerals, memorials and vigils.

When given at a sad occasion, extreme care is taken in your choice of flowers. 1800flowers helps you make the most appropriate and thoughtful choice accordingly.

Romancing with flowers

There's something about flowers that shouts romance. Whether you get them for your sweetie on a random day just because you were thinking about her, or on Valentines when she expects them - flowers speak romance like nothing else.

The best thing about flowers can be used on any occasion and given to anyone regardless of relationship and age gap. They tend to melt women like nothing else. Take a few daisies for your mom and you'll know what I mean.

Messed up big time? Take home flowers either as an apology or a means to soften the blow when you 'fess up. Imagine the look on your 6 year old daughter's face when you hand her a rose telling her that just like the rose is the most beautiful flower, she's the most beautiful person to you.

Cheesy? Maybe. But not so far from the truth. Making the women in your life happy ultimately keeps you happy.

1800flowers Celebrates Valentines In Style

Romance is never more in the air than around Valentine's Day. The twilight series however, created a similar effect around both its movie releases. Girls were going crazy, guys (for once) knew what to do to make their significant other happy. Sales of movie tickets and books went off the roof.

This Valentines, 1800flowers.com has come up with a perfect solution to delight your loved one. They've brought out a Twilight Flowers Poster Bundle. Flowers, posters, chocolate and a Twilight DVD are all available depending on which package you choose.

Not only will you be able to create the perfect Valentine atmosphere but you'll also have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift purchase contributed towards charity. 1800flowers has pledged to donate $2 on purchase of every Twilight gift bundle.

As they were singled out recently by MSNBC for the transparency in their pricing, you'll know that the donation will be made for sure.

Flowers For Your Valentine!

flowers Flower shops wait in anticipation of Valentine’s Day all year long. All those flowers being ordered and delivered, last minute special deliveries, special orders for hard to get flowers…

Even the simplest of flowers like daisies are arranged into exquisite bouquets to entice customers. There’s something about flowers that just brighten a day and bring a smile to one’s face. They brighten a room, attract attention and spread cheer.

No matter how differently one plans their valentine’s day, flowers, especially roses factor into those plans. After all, a Valentine’s Day without flowers just doesn’t seem right.

So whether you plan on celebrating Valentines or not (and I know folks who don’t), get your significant other flowers to mark the day. Come to think of it, you should be bringing home flowers every now and then and not just on Valentines.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
