“There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence,” so wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson in the 19th century, and perhaps this pithy but somewhat profound statement encapsulates best why the rose has, for centuries, symbolised love and is the flower most given on Valentine’s Day.
Allan Jarden of Central City Flowers is a passionate floral designer who goes that extra mile to create fresh and stunning arrangements certain to captivate and charm every heart; The recipient of a Valentine’s bouquet created by Allan and his team of fully qualified florists is lucky indeed.
Should roses not be the flowers you choose to woo with, then pop online to browse beautiful bouquets for some inspiration; alternatively, if something with a touch of understated allure is more your style, then a Phalaenopsis orchid in a ceramic vase, for instance, makes for an elegant and enchanting gift of love.
But for the ultimate heart-hit of Cupid’s arrow, consider a delivery of flowers, chocolates and something sweetly scented, such as a pamper pack of botanic and fruit fragranced goodies, a rose scented soap or a divinely perfumed candle, to your loved one’s door.
You never know, by this time next year, you might be clutching another bouquet from Central City Flowers and repeating after the minister those two magic little words – “I do!”
