Where to Buy Flowers for Your Special Someone (or Yourself!) Around Sacramento
There are many ways to express our love. Sometimes, it’s a meaningful gift. Others, it’s a special meal. But one of the most tried-and-true methods is by giving flowers. Flowers are a congratulations for a job well done, an appreciation for a kind gesture, and an acknowledgement of a major milestone. But more often than not, giving flowers is simply a way to say “I Love You.”
The tradition of giving flowers dates back centuries. In Victorian England, floriography, or the language of flowers, was used to express emotion in a culture that was otherwise reserved. A red rose symbolized romantic love, daisies suggested loyalty, and sweat peas meant appreciation.
Today, giving flowers is as meaningful as ever, whether for Valentine’s Day or any day. And red roses still reign supreme when it comes to love. This Valentine’s Day, consider a romantic evening at home with fresh flowers, a special meal, and some romantic tunes. Oh, and if you need help in the music department, check out Lyon Real Estate’s “Date Night In” playlist on Spotify!
