After the expenses of Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, it can leave many people feeling particularly strapped for cash. Of course, you don’t want to skip the celebrations altogether and you don’t want to come across as cheap. Fortunately, there are ways of saving money without cutting corners. You can still spoil your Valentine without hinting at your limited budget.
The first important piece of advice for those looking for cheap Valentine’s Day flowers, is to avoid Red Roses and other red flowers. Red flowers are usually more expensive around this time of year than any other month. If you are set on sending a red Bouquet, you can send red tulips or carnations. Alternatively, you could opt for pink roses or other pink flowers. Of course, other colours like yellow, purple, and various combinations can also prove joyfully romantic. They are especially suitable for those in new relationships who might not be ready to send such a passionate message of love that goes along with red roses.
If you simply must have red roses but you cannot afford to spend a fortune, a single red rose could be just what you need. Bud arrangements are becoming increasingly popular and they can really send the perfect message at a fraction of the price. If you order roses in a different colour or even a mixed bouquet, you will probably be able to afford a larger selection of blooms. Remember, online florists offer several size options which will help you stick to your budget.
Foliage is often thought of as optional and, even when you do choose to add some greenery, it should never be overdone. You don’t want all those leaves to obstruct the view of the flowers. Instead, you want just enough greenery to help the flowers stand out. Remember, foliage is optional but it can give your bouquet a fuller appearance without the higher price tag.
Another great idea t remember is to consider buying a vase. If you want to buy a vase, you should add one to your flower order. You will find these vases to be reasonably priced and often cheaper than those you find in the store. Alternatively, you can decorate another container you have at home and use it as a vase. Finally, if neither of these options prove suitable, you can ask your florist for a bouquet wrapped in decorative paper.
You can also add a special romantic accessory to the bouquet if you really want to emphasize the Valentine’s Day theme. Think about a heart pick or add something extra to your flower order like a box of luxury chocolates. It’s all about thinking about all the things your Valentine loves.
