When you consider an occasion for giving flowers to celebrate romance, your anniversary or Valentine’s Day may come to mind. However, you may not realize that the entire month of August is set aside to lavish love on your sweetheart as well! This is a wonderful opportunity to send unexpected gifts, extend sweet gestures, and convey your devotion – after all, romance is a year-round affair!
Evansville’s top florist shop, Zeidler’s Flowers, has been providing romantic flowers to couples in Evansville for over 100 years – and for National Romance Month, we have the experience and inspiration you’ll need to sweep your loved one off their feet.
Did You Know? The first diamond engagement ring was given to Mary of Burgundy in 1477. The Archduke Maximilian of Austria could not possibly have known how his extravagant gift to his intended would shape culture. But while that tradition persists, many age-old customs are dying out in modern society. For instance, only one in five men will pop the question on bended knee; and less than 5% of prospective brides or grooms will ask for the approval or blessing of their parents before getting married.
Modern Romance: In 2017, it is estimated that 40% of singles will join an online dating site to try to find romance. And although you may think it is a phenomenon for the young, senior citizens are joining online dating communities at the same rate as their grandkids.
Love is Brewing: Approximately 10,000 couples who get married each year credit their romance to agreeing initially to a simple cup of coffee.
Delivering Romance: When it comes to romance, the red rose is the king of all the flowers. The iconic bloom universally symbolizes passionate love. But there are other flower varieties that also deliver love – for instance, the daisy represents young, hopeful love, while the red tulip is considered a confident declaration of unwavering devotion. The gardenia is indicative of secret love, and the peony is sent to tell your spouse that you love being married.
Tips for Being Romantic: Use the month of August as a moment to reflect on your relationship and inject with a dose of romance. You can go for grand gestures such as a weekend getaway for just the two of you, a fancy dinner night out (or in), or go to a live music or comedy show. Oftentimes, smaller gestures of romance are just as appreciated and go a long way to building the bonds between a couple. Don’t forget to hold hands, kiss each other good morning and good night, give each other hugs, say “I love you” every day, check in with each other throughout the day, and give fresh flowers throughout the year “just because.”
National Romance Month is the time to appreciate your SO and show them how much you care and how much they mean to you. Actions speak louder than words, so celebrate the love of your life in creative and unexpected ways. You can trust the floral experts at Zeidler’s Flowers to create the most romantic floral arrangements in Evansville and to deliver them to your sweetheart with love.
