These days, Valentine’s Day is more than a box of chocolates and bouquet of flowers from one person to another. It’s about loving yourself, too.
“Valentine’s Day is a celebration of romantic relationships, but it’s just as important to also honor the connection you have with yourself,” said Alfred Palomares, vice president of merchandising for 1-800-Flowers.com. “Treat yourself with a truly original gift from our 2020 Valentine’s Day collection. Our assortment includes a wide variety of new and exclusive offerings from beautifully, handcrafted bouquets to decadent, gourmet treats–all are the perfect expression of self-love.”
The new collection, which was a year in the making, brings together fresh, innovative arrangements and unique floral designs to create a truly extraordinary assortment commemorating love and romance. The themes that inspired the collection include Magnificent Roses that are preserved, long-lasting and come in an array of colors such as red, lavender, pink, blush and blue, including some that are gold-kissed or adorned with crystals. The collection also features Romantic Medleys, an extensive assortment of exclusive romantic bouquets in a variety of blooms; Radiant Reds, highlighting the iconic red rose in elegantly styles mixed arrangements and Vibrant Gerbera Daisies, which was deemed the Flower of the Year by 1-800-Flowers.com.
As for something sweet, you can never go wrong with chocolate truffles, chocolate dipped strawberries or a sweets and treats wine pairing.
