Top 4 Tips To Make Your Flowers Last Longer

There’s nothing quite like a bouquet of gorgeous roses or flowers to make you feel special. If you’re like most people, you’ll do anything to make those Valentine’s Day roses or that graduation bouquet last for a few more days. It doesn’t take long for your flowers to start drooping, and you may be looking for ways to preserve their lovely smell and vibrant appearance. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to make your floral friends last a little bit longer, and in this blog, we’ll discuss the top four tips to prolong the life of your flowers.

At Venus Et Fleur, we understand what a short shelf lifespan most flowers can have, which is why we’ve created Eternity Roses™. Our Eternity Roses are real live roses that can last up to a full year when properly cared for! How, you ask? All of our roses are cut at the peak of their perfection and quickly treated with a proprietary solution to transform them into long lasting, fresh roses. Our roses make the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations, and we even offer custom roses for special orders. Browse our special collections online today!

Tip #1: Cut The Flower Stems Properly

Did you know that you can make your flowers last longer by cutting the stems? According to John W. Kelley at the Clemson University Department of Horticulture, properly cutting your stems can extend the life of your flowers by as much as 18 to 32 percent. To do this properly, fill a basin or your sink with lukewarm water and place the flower stem into the water. Cut each stem at a sharp angle, preferably at a 45-degree angle (this will help the flowers take in water more easily). If you’d prefer not to use a basin, you can leave the flowers under a steady stream of water as you cut the stems, which will help to prolong their freshness.

Did you know that when a flower’s stem is cut, the flower’s access to water from the root system ceases immediately? Air can quickly be drawn into the stem, which can create a pocket of air or an embolism that prevents easy water absorption.

Tip #2: Prune Those Leaves

While you may be tempted to leave the leaves on your roses, you may want to consider pruning any leaves that sit below the waterline of your vase. Why, you ask? When you leave leaves on the stem to sit in water, it will cause them to eventually die. As the dead leaves sit in the water, bacteria can easily be spread to your beautiful flowers, shortening their lifespan significantly. Some flowers, like roses, have guard petals which are the two or three outermost petals of the flower. By removing these petals, it will allow your flowers to open up more fully. Once your initial pruning is complete, you should check your flowers on a daily basis for loose or dead leaves and petals in order to avoid bacterial rot.

Tip #3: Keep Your Flowers Out Of Direct Sunlight

Many people like to put their new flowers next to a window so they can receive sunlight, however this tactic can actually cause your flowers more harm than good. Avoid displaying your flowers in areas like open windows, near heating and cooling vents, and in direct sunlight. These areas can cause your flowers to dehydrate and wilt at a faster pace.

If you want to send a loved one roses without having to worry about them dying a week later, consider ordering some Eternity Roses from Venus Et Fleur. Whether you order our Marble Rose Collection or our Red Suede Heart Box Collection, you can rest assured that your beautiful roses will last up to a year long with the proper maintenance!

Tip #4: Use Household Ingredients To Prolong The Life Of Your Flowers

If you’ve done your research on how to prolong flowers at home, you may have come across some interesting household ingredients that can be used to extend the life of your flowers. Let’s look at some common ways to prolong the life of your flowers or roses below.

  • Soda - Before you throw out that almost-empty two-liter bottle of soda, pour about ¼ cup of soda into your flower’s water. The sugar from the soda will help make your blossoms last longer. If you want to liquid in your vase to be clear like water, you may want to consider using clear soda like Sprite®.
  • Hair Spray - Who knew hair spray could be used on something other than styling your hair? A simple spritz of hair spray can help your fresh cut flowers last longer. Just stand a foot away from the bouquet before you give them a quick spray. Try to aim for the undersides of the leaves and petals.
  • Vodka - One secret to keeping fresh cut flowers looking good for as long as possible is to minimize the growth of bacteria in the water. Since flowers get all of their nourishment from water, when the water is murky or full of bacteria, it can lead to the quick demise of your floral arrangement. Try adding a few drops of vodka to your flower vase to encourage antibacterial action.
  • Coins - Did you know that your posies and other cut flowers will last longer if you throw a copper penny and a cube of sugar into the base? Copper pennies act as an acidifier, which helps to prevent the growth of bacteria in the vase.
  • Bleach - If you want your flowers to last longer, try adding ¼ tablespoon of bleach per one liter of water to your vase. This will keep your flower water from getting cloudy, not to mention it will help ward off bacteria growth.

As you can see, there are many unique ways to prolong the life of your beautiful flowers. At Venus Et Fleur, we understand how difficult it can be to maintain flower freshness and beauty, which is why we’ve created Eternity Roses that can last up to a year long.

The red rose has even been incorporated into famous works of art from classical poetry to ancient paintings, and it remains to be an inspiration to lovers across numerous cultures.

3 Of The Best Ways To Apologize To Your Girlfriend

As Elton John once sang, sorry seems to be the hardest word to say. This can be especially true in romantic relationships. For most women, apologizing is a way of reconnecting with someone whose feelings have been hurt. Women are not fans of conflict, and they will often work to remedy a situation before any more emotional damage can be done. Men, on the other hand, tend to have a more challenging time apologizing to their girlfriends and wives. This is because they may feel that saying “I’m sorry” will be perceived as humiliating or weak.

Whether you accidentally forget your girlfriend’s birthday or you’re looking for a way to restore the intimacy in your broken marriage, there are many appropriate ways to apologize to a loved one. In this blog, we’ll discuss three of the best ways to apologize to your loved one so you can bury the hatchet and restore your relationship.

Send Your Girlfriend A Bouquet of Roses

If you’ve done something to cause your girlfriend to feel hurt, you may be overwhelmed with feelings of remorse, guilt, and regret. One way to lift your loved one’s spirit is to order them a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Whether you plan on sending them to your girlfriend’s home or office, she will appreciate the kind sentiment after a late night fight or a rough morning. Red roses are a great floral option to send, as they are universally known as the flower of love and affection. You can include a heartfelt message to be delivered with the flowers if you feel a written apology would be well received.

At Venus Et Fleur, we believe that nothing says “I love you” like an assortment of our Eternity Roses™. Our Eternity Roses are real live roses that can last up to an entire year when properly maintained. All of our roses are treated with a proprietary solution and color pigmentation process to transform these flowers into long-lasting roses that will maintain their freshness and biological structure for months. If you’re looking for a floral arrangement to really express your apology, consider ordering our Red Suede Heart Box with red roses to send to your loved one. Carefully arranged in a red faux suede box, this beautiful rose arrangement features 36 of our most vibrant and healthy roses. Order this limited edition collection before it’s too late!

Write Your Loved One A Poem

Poems have long been considered one of the most symbolic, thoughtful, and romantic ways to communicate feelings to a loved one. A well-written poem can capture the essence of your thoughts and can even invoke an emotional response from your girlfriend during a time of challenge. When you sit down to organize your thoughts, let your pen do the writing as you jot down how important your significant other is to you. If there’s a specific incident that you’d like to address in your poem, find a touching way to do so without adding stress to the current situation.

Take Your Girlfriend Out For A Romantic Evening

If your girlfriend has a favorite type of cuisine or restaurant they like to go to, consider planning a date night for just the two of you to express your feelings and apologize for your actions. If your honey’s a big pizza fan, consider making a pizza at home and arranging the toppings to spell out “I’m Sorry.” This way when your girlfriend comes over for dinner, you can cut straight to the point as soon as you pull the pizza out of the oven. Let’s face it, it’s hard to turn down an apology when your favorite dish or food is sitting in front of you!

Create A Thoughtful Photo Collage

If you’ve been with your girlfriend for a year or longer, there’s a good chance you have a variety of photos of the two of you stored in your phone or camera . To show your loved one that you truly are sorry, consider taking the time to create a thoughtful photo collage. You can use photos of your adventures together, family parties, and vacations, or you can ask your girlfriend’s family for photos from her childhood. If you’re not up for arts and crafts, there are many services available online that can help you create a beautiful picture collage in little to no time at all.

When it comes to saying, “I’m sorry,” there are many creative things you can do to express your sincere apology. Rather than laying the blame on your girlfriend for your mistakes or pretending that nothing is wrong, take the time to say I’m sorry in a way she will truly remember and appreciate. If you feel that sending her flowers is the way to go, be sure to browse Venus Et Fleur’s Special Collections online today!

Fall Wedding Flower Trends of 2017

If you’ve ever had to plan a wedding, you probably already know that choosing flowers for spring and Summer weddings is a no-brainer. There are a variety of beautiful flowers available during these warmer seasons, and sweet pastel color schemes can easily make any wedding environment feel comfortable and appropriate. For weddings in the fall, however, choosing floral arrangements can be a challenge. Luckily, the floral experts at Venus Et Fleur have come together to help you prepare for your fall wedding. In this blog, we’ll look at some fall wedding trends you can expect in 2017 so you can be well prepared when it comes time to plan your big day!

Fall Wedding Flower Trend #1: Consider Ordering Thick Textured Wedding Flowers

A floral trend that is becoming very popular for fall weddings is lush, rich arrangements with lots of interesting textures. Rather than using two or three different types of blooms in your table centerpieces, consider using a wide mix of flowers that are color-coordinated to your color scheme. A good example of this is starting with a base of classic flowers and mixing in an array of feathery crocosmia or hypericum berries and wooly lamb’s ear leaves to make the arrangement pop. If you’re looking to add a distinct fall touch, consider adding poppies with dark centers to add a touch of visual depth to your floral arrangements.

Fall Wedding Flower Trend #2: Add Classic Wedding Flowers In Rich Hues

When it comes to fall weddings, don’t be afraid to use some classic flowers in your floral arrangements. You can tailor these arrangements to the fall season by choosing more deep and dramatic shades of color. You can opt for the classic autumn hues or go with something a little more surprising like aubergine, copper, and deep forest green. While elegant dahlias may be the perfect fall blossom for your big day, roses are always a popular choice as well. You can find roses in an array of colors to fit your wedding color scheme.

At Venus ET Fleur, we understand how stressful wedding planning can be. If you’re looking for the perfect roses to display at your wedding or to give as a wedding gift, consider ordering some of our Eternity Roses™ today! Our Eternity Roses are real, live roses that can last up to an entire year when cared for properly. We treat our roses with a proprietary solution and color pigmentation process so you can enjoy them for months and months to come. We have the ability to transform the traditional red rose into a variety of colors including yellow, aqua, and baby blue. Check out our Special Collections online today!

Fall Wedding Flower Trend #3: Use Plants As Your Reception Centerpieces

Depending on the number of guests you plan to have at your wedding, there’s a good chance you will need centerpieces for your reception tables. Succulents have become a largely popular landscaping trend, and brides all over the world are working these plants into their wedding centerpieces. While succulents are seasonless, they can come in fall-like hues like aubergine, cactus green, and pomegranate. Most succulents features leaves that look almost identical to flower petals, which means you can mix them easily in with any other flowers you decide to use.

Fall Wedding Flower Trend #4: Go Green Or Go Home

In 2017, we’ve seen a rise of eco-conscious couples and their wedding florists focus on using locally grown, organic flowers. If you plan on using local flowers for your big day, be sure to choose a florist that is located near your wedding site. This will lessen your environmental impact, rather than having to fly unique flowers to town from another city or continent. A major benefit of choosing organic flowers is that you’ll spare your wedding guests from exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.

As you can see, there are several fall wedding flower trends to keep in mind as you start to plan your autumn wedding. If you’re looking for a unique centerpiece to display on each table, Venus Et Fleur offers custom rose packages to help you celebrate your big day.

A Brief History of Sweetest Day & Common Gifts

Sweetest Day is always observed on the third Saturday in October, but where exactly did this holiday come from? Legend has it that this lovers’ holiday was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston. Kingston was a Cleveland, Ohio candy company employee who wanted to bring happiness to the lives of people who had been forgotten. He decided on this day that he would distribute candy and small gifts to orphans, or people that were confined to their homes due to illness. In the 1930s, movie stars started to take notice of this holiday and some famous actors helped make the holiday even more popular. Over the course of time, Sweetest Day broadened to become almost as popular as Valentine’s Day.

  • Do they like to spend their time indoors, outdoors, or both?
  • Does your friend have any favorite movies or television shows that they like to watch?
  • Is your friend a reader? Do they have a favorite series of books or like a particular author?
  • What is their favorite restaurant to eat at?
  • Do they have a favorite color?

Once you’ve answered these questions, you should have a good idea of items to include in your care package. If you plan on mailing your care package as opposed to delivering it in person, it may be fun to decorate the inside of the box. You can decorate the box with photos of you and your friend or family member, or spruce it up with colored paper for something a little more decorative.

One of the best feelings in the world is opening the front door to an unexpected beautiful delivery of flowers. They will be sure to brighten your lovely lady’s day, as well as thrill her with the surprise. Whether it’s the first delivery to communicate your feelings or a celebration of several months of bliss, a surprise gift will make her feel like she’s thought of and admired. You’ll also surprise her when you send “just because” roses and the thrill will draw her heart even closer towards yours.


Try Something New

If you always bring your significant other or girlfriend pink roses, try shaking it up and sending a gorgeous deep maroon, a gentle white, or an unexpected blue. She’ll be surprised by your choice and they’ll be sure to bring a smile to her face. If you’re worried that she might not like the color, try sending a smaller arrangement so she won’t feel the need to pretend that she likes it in case that she doesn’t. However, if you send a Venus ET Fleur arrangement, there’s a serious chance that she’ll absolutely love the delivery and be thrilled by your decision.


Flowers Don’t Mean Commitment

Many men are afraid to send flowers because they believe that they mean that they’re committed to the relationship. While flowers are a great way to express feelings, they don’t necessarily convey that the man is ready to take the relationship to the next level. Flowers are an excellent gift to communicate a thank you for a wonderful date, excitement for an upcoming event, or just a “thinking of you” surprise. If you want to take her breath away, sending flowers after a first date will be sure to win you some brownie points.


Flowers Are Never Boring

Chivalry isn’t dead! While some women may say that they don’t need flowers to feel affection, a delivery full of fragrant blooms will still bring a smile to her face. She’ll still feel special and honored that you thought about her and liked her enough to take the time to send flowers. While she might even seem indifferent, deep down she will feel honored by your consideration. Being “old-fashioned” is never bad and will definitely set you apart from past beaus she dated. If you’re worried about her reception to a floral arrangement, try sending a smaller Eternity™ rose delivery the first time that you express your feelings for her so she won’t feel overwhelmed by a huge gift.


Flowers Go a Long Way

If you want to truly wow your special lady, a beautiful flower arrangement will be sure to knock her socks off. Many women can remember every single time that they received flowers, especially if they were from someone that they care about. Of course, some women may not be as quickly swayed by blooms, but an unexpected delivery of stunning roses will blow the flower lover completely away.


Be Prepared

Plan ahead before you send flowers. Make sure that you have her full name, her address, and any other delivery information that may be needed. If you’re planning to send a floral arrangement to her office, call her secretary or the office assistant before choosing a delivery date or time to ensure that she’ll be there. You can even ask her assistant for advice on the color or arrangement style. By making sure that she’ll be in the office and able to receive your delivery, you will be sure to make her day.

Don’t be daunted by sending flowers! The next time that you’re planning to send a beautiful floral arrangement, surprise her with gorgeous Venus ET Fleur roses. Our roses are hand-picked and can last for up to a year, so your incredibly thoughtful gift will continue to take her breath away for months. We have plenty of options to choose from as well so you can pick her favorite color and customize other elements that will delight her to no end. Order your Venus ET Fleur Eternity arrangement now!

The Top Tried-And-True Wedding Flowers, Part One

If you’re having trouble deciding which flowers to choose from your wedding day, the experts at Venus Et Fleur are here to help. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the top tried-and-true wedding flowers to help you narrow down your choices before you meet with a florist. At Venus Et Fleur, we’re proud to offer our flower services to brides and grooms all over the world. Our Eternity Roses™ are real, live roses that can last for up to a year when cared for properly. Browse our Special Collections online today!

Wedding Flower #1: Roses

Roses have long been considered a symbol of beauty and love, and they can make the perfect floral addition to your wedding day. In the past, romance writers and poets have used this special flower as a metaphor for emotion, beauty, passion, and true love. Roses are far from boring, and they can come in a variety of colors to accommodate your wedding decor. With more than three thousand varieties of roses being grown commercially, these flowers are surprisingly affordable. Let’s look at some popular rose types below!

Modern Garden Roses

Modern Roses can include a variety of roses that have been bred after 1867. When most people think of roses, they think of this kind, because they are largely classified by their growth and flowering characteristics. Unlike Old Garden Roses, which are known to bloom just once a year, Modern Roses bloom on a continuous basis. These flowers also have a larger bloom size and a younger case life, but they can lack fragrance and are more susceptible to diseases.

Climbing Roses

While their name suggests that these roses climb like vines do, this is a common misconception. Climbing Roses have stiff, upright canes that can be manually trained along a support system. Some canes can reach an impressive height of 15 feet, and these roses are known to produce more flowers when they are grown horizontally rather than vertically. You can often find Climbing Roses attached to walls and fences, and they tend to have large flowers that are always repeat bloomers.

Miniature Roses

Miniature Roses are small versions of Hybrid Tea roses. These tiny flowers have petite stems and they can come in a wide range of colors to make your wedding day extra special. From bright pink to orange and yellow, these little flowers typically bloom continuously for two to three weeks at a time. While these roses are normally sold as houseplants, they can make a tremendous statement in decor on your wedding day.

Damask Roses

You may be familiar with Damask Roses from Biblical stories, as these are some of the oldest roses in the world. There are two main groups of Damasks: the Summer Damask and the Autumn Damask, which are both named after the time of year in which they bloom. These roses can come in a variety of colors from white to pink, and they tend to have very fragrant blossoms that are utilized in the perfume industry.

Wedding Flower #2: Tulips

Tulips are another great floral option to consider for your wedding day. While these beautiful flowers are most often associated with the Netherlands, this flower is actually a native of Persia. Tulips are available in a wide range of colors including white, cream, peach, and vibrant hues such as magenta and red. Whether you’re planning on a more casual wedding or an extravagant celebration, tulips are an affordable option worth considering. These flowers can work well in bouquets, boutonnieres, and even table arrangements.

While roses and tulips are both great floral options for your wedding, there are a few more flowers worth considering. In part two of this series, we’ll look at some more popular wedding flowers for your big day. If you’re looking for a floral arrangement that will last up to a year with little maintenance, order some Eternity Roses from Venus Et Fleur today or browse our custom floral arrangements online!

“I was thinking of you….”

It’s simple, but will stay in her mind and heart for a long time. Knowing that she’s on your mind and that you decided to send her flowers will make her heart flutter. If there’s something that made you think of her, write it in the card. For example, if you were browsing our website and noticed our sunny yellow roses or delicate pink blooms, mention that the color reminded you of her personality or of the dress that she wore on your first date. She’ll love the fact that you remembered small details of the time that you spent together and that you took the time to choose flowers that reminded you of that memory. You can elaborate on what made you think of her, or write about how excited that you are to spend time with her again.


“You mentioned that you loved roses….”

If she’s ever mentioned that she loves white roses or can’t get enough of hot pink rose arrangements, surprise her with a beautiful rose arrangement to show her that you were listening and care. Not only is this a sweet way to show her that you’re thinking of her, but you’ll also gain major brownie points for sending her a surprise floral arrangement after spending time with her and remembering a small detail of your conversation. End the card with “I can’t wait to learn more about you” and she won’t be able to hold back her smiles of excitement.


“I really like spending time with you….”

Spending time together is a huge aspect of a relationship, and telling her that you enjoy her company is a sweet gesture of kindness and adoration. This is an especially good phrase to include in your note if you’re still in that “getting to know you” stage and don’t want to overwhelm her with your feelings but want her to feel cared about. Try adding a bit more about how you can’t wait to spend more time together and are looking forward to your next date. Boys can play hard to get too, and keeping her guessing will make your next date even more exciting.


“You’re always on my mind….”

If she’s constantly racing through your thoughts and feel like want her to know how much you’re thinking of her, send her a tangible reminder of your infatuation. This will make her smile and feel adored by you. Choose her favorite color or color combination of our gorgeous Eternity roses and she’ll remember this gesture for years to come. If you’ve recently gone to the next level of your relationship, this is a great way to commemorate that and your simple words may even bring tears of joy to her eyes.

“I’m falling for you…”

Perhaps one of the most daring phrases to write on a card, expressing your feelings in no uncertain terms will be sure to take her breath away. Go all out with this one and send a stunning arrangement of our beautiful Eternity™ roses along with this heartfelt expression of your feelings. Finish your card with something along the lines of “you’re quickly becoming a part of my heart” and you’ll definitely make her weak in the knees. Paired with our luxury roses that can last for up to a year, she might not ever let you go.

Sending flowers along with a heartfelt card is a wonderful way to show that you care and are thinking of that special lady in your life. The next time that you want to send flowers, take your floral delivery to the next level and send Venus ET Fleur! Shop our website now to see the incredibly stunning difference!

In this blog, we’ll discuss the history of roses from ancient, medieval, and modern periods.

Roses in the Ancient World

Rosa damascena, also known as the damask rose, is an early descendent of Rosa gallica. This rose made it’s appearance around 900 B.C., and it became most popular for its wonderful fragrance. While roses were used to commemorate various events during this time, below are some of the most famous stories of roses being used back then.

  • Cleopatra allegedly had her living quarters filled with petals of roses so that when Marc Antony met her, he would remember her each time he smelled a rose.
  • Roman high society women used roses to help them banish wrinkles when used in poultices.Rose petals were often dropped in wine because it was believed that the essence of the rose would stave off drunkenness. Armies that would come back victorious would often be showered with rose petals from civilians that crowded the streets and balconies as well.
  • Newly married couples were often crowned with roses.

Roses in Medieval Times

During the medieval period following the fall of the Roman Empire, Europeans were busy trying to recover from the onslaught of various armies and raiders. Due to this trying time, it became very difficult to maintain rose gardens, and only a handful existed back then. It is said that the King of Franks Charlemagne, also known as Charles the Great (742 A.D. - 814 A.D.), also grew roses on the grounds of his palace at Aix-la-Chapelle, although it was mainly the monks who were responsible for keeping the roses alive.

Roses in Modern Periods

The era of modern roses was established alongside the first hybrid tea rose, known as “La France.” Created in 1867 by a man named Jean-Baptiste André Guillot, this unique breed of rose was considered special for a number of important horticultural reasons. Let’s take a look at them below.

  • La France has a globular double flower with slightly rolled outer petals and a strong, sweet damask fragrance.
  • This rose flower develops from long pointed buds that can reach an average diameter of nine centimeters. By the late 20th century, there were more than 10,000 hybrid tea roses that were being bred.

Other Legends About Roses

  • In Greek mythology, the Goddess of Love, also known as Aphrodite, is said to have created the rose from the tears and blood of her love Adonis.
  • The Romans, who turned Aphrodite into their goddess Venus, also adopted the rose as a symbol of love and beauty. When Cupid offered a rose to the God of Silence in an attempt to hush Venus’ amorous escapades, the flower turned into a symbol for secrecy. Roman dining room ceilings were often decorated with roses to remind guests to keep secret what has been said at the dinner table.
  • When Venus’ son Cupid was stung by a bee, he accidentally shot arrows into a rose garden. It was believed to be the sting of the arrow that caused the roses to grow their thorns. When Venus walked through the garden and pricked her foot on a thorn, it was the droplets of her blood that turned the roses red.

The Perfect Sympathy Flowers for Friends and Loved Ones

Life is hard and sometimes it can feel truly unfair. If you have a friend or loved one who is going through a hard time, it can be difficult to watch him or her be sad and unhappy. You may wonder if there’s anything that you can do to convey your sympathy. If you feel that flowers would be a good choice, choose to send Venus ET Fleur Eternity™ roses. These gorgeous roses will last much longer than a traditional bouquet, and the individual or family who is receiving the flowers will be able to enjoy them for months. In this blog, we’ll discuss a few situations that flowers would be appropriate for and how they’re the perfect way to convey your sympathy. For the leader in gorgeous roses that last up to year, look no further than Venus ET Fleur! Shop our website today!

A Death in the Family

If someone close to you or your family has recently died, flowers are an excellent way to convey your sympathy and sadness to the family. It’s best to send a small or medium sized arrangement so as to not overwhelm the family or appear too “showy” in your gift. If you’re unsure of what color to send, white or cream roses are always the best choice and will be appreciated. However, if you were close to the person who passed on, sending roses in his or her favorite shade is a great way to honor his or her memory. You can even combine several of our Eternity rose colors to create a unique arrangement that you know that your friend or loved one would have enjoyed. As with all of Venus ET Fleur rose arrangement deliveries, there is a beautiful, high-quality stationery card enclosed on which you can convey your thoughts and condolences to the family. Our gorgeous roses will last up to a year without any maintenance and will keep the memory of your friend or loved one alive.


Apology Flowers

If you know that you’ve made a serious mistake or said something that hurt a friend’s feelings and want to apologize, sending your apology via a Venus ET Fleur arrangement will definitely help to smooth over the issue. Choose an arrangement that you know your friend will appreciate and enjoy, and make sure to write your apology on the enclosed stationery. It can be difficult to say “I’m sorry”, and you may not be sure if your friend will offer forgiveness, but a Venus ET Fleur arrangement might help to nudge him or her in the direction towards reconciliation. Making a mistake or saying a hurtful comment is part of life and we’re all guilty of it. Ask for forgiveness in a big way and send a Venus ET Fleur arrangement to convey your remorse. While it won't instantly make everything better, it will let your friend know that you understand what you did and want to make it right through a beautiful peace offering.


A Job Loss

One of the hardest things to experience in life is losing a job. Even if it was expected, it’s embarrassing, terrifying, and depressing. If a friend or loved one has recently experienced a job loss, a Venus ET Fleur arrangement of gorgeous Eternity roses might be just the thing to help him or her feel cared for and cheered up. Take some time to choose the perfect arrangement in his or her favorite color. It’s a great way to help your friend or loved one feel less like the world is falling apart and to have hope for the future. You can also write a wonderful message using our high-quality stationery. Receiving such gorgeous flowers that will last for up to a year and smell incredible will be a wonderful reminder that there is still good in the world and that you care.
Sometimes life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, but you can still send a Venus ET Fleur Eternity rose arrangement to convey your sympathy and condolences.

Next time you’re planning to send flowers, send a Venus ET Fleur Eternity™ rose arrangement. It will completely make his or her day for up to a year! Shop now!


Red: Red roses are by far the most popular shade of flowers chosen, but do you understand the meaning when you send a dozen stems to a significant other? Traditionally, they mean love, but they can also convey beauty, respect, courage, romantic love, and passion. This definitely explains the hue choice for Valentine’s Day. If you’re planning to express your love to someone you’ve recently fallen for, an arrangement full of fragrant Venus ET Fleur roses will be sure to make the event even more meaningful.

White: When you choose to send white roses, you’re expressing that you think the recipient is innocent, pure, or youthful. These are often a choice for baby showers or bridal luncheons and bring an air of elegant virtue to an event. If you’re searching for the perfect alabaster Eternity™ rose arrangement, you can also choose a pristine white Venus ET Fleur box to continue with the theme of purity.

Yellow: The color of friendship, yellow roses are the perfect choice to send a dear confidant or companion. The happy hue is also an excellent option to send to someone you’ve recently begun seeing in a romantic manner without appearing too forward. Yellow can also convey joy, delight, and gladness. As yellow is the color of sunshine, it makes sense that it expresses excitement and pure elation.

Lavender: A soft and delicate shade, lavender is a special color reserved for celebrating success and accomplishment. This is the perfect color to send as a congratulatory surprise to a work colleague who has recently been promoted, a friend who has completed his or her higher education, or as a housewarming gift to a new homeowner. You can custom-mix several lavender Eternity™ roses with other shades to send a complex and meaningful arrangement to the recipient.

Pink: The traditional meaning of femininity, pink is a lovely color to send to a family who has recently had a baby girl. Alternatively, pink can be viewed as a hue of thoughtfulness and falling in love. A lucky lady who receives a beautiful blush shade of Venus ET Fleur Eternity™ roses from her beau will be smiling for weeks.

Blue: A blue rose arrangement expresses sympathy, serenity, and calm. The peaceful shade makes this the perfect color choice for a get-well-soon or grief arrangement. However, if you’re searching for a perfect shade to convey trust and commitment, you can also choose this hue for an arrangement for a love interest. To further communicate your feelings, whether sympathetic or assuring, Venus ET Fleur also has beautiful selection of blue boxes to contain your Eternity™ rose choice.

Green: While it may seem like an odd color choice, green is actually an extremely popular choice to signify good fortune, new life, and renewal. To convey harmony to a close family member or friend, choosing our hunter or mint green Eternity™ rose arrangement is the perfect decision for a new baby’s arrival (and also works beautifully if the parents have decided to not reveal the baby’s gender), a job change, or renewed wedding vows. Whoever receives a verdant Venus ET Fleur rose arrangement will be honored by your heartfelt thoughtfulness.

A special way to convey life’s joys and experiences, taking the time to choose a specific color to convey a distinct message will definitely honor your friend or family member’s experience or life event.

Romantic Things To Do For Your Anniversary

If you have an anniversary coming up, you may be looking for romantic and fun things to do to show that special someone just how much you love them. There are many different ways to express your love and gratitude towards your significant other, and in this blog we’ll look at some unique ways to celebrate your anniversary.

Venus Et Fleur is proud to offer a wide array of floral arrangements to help you celebrate your anniversary and other special occasions. All of our Eternity roses can last up to a year without the need for any watering or maintenance, and each of our floral designs are custom made. Browse our special collections online or get inspiration from our website today!

A Couple’s Massage

If you’re looking for a fun and rejuvenating activity to do on your anniversary, consider purchasing a couple’s massage at your local spa. According to Esther Boykin, a licensed marriage and family therapist and co-founder of Group Therapy Associates, “during a massage session, people are almost instinctually driven to let go of the past and the future and turn their attention to the present moment. This practice of being fully engaged in an activity together that can help couples reconnect, and with a little effort, they can bring that same level of mindful awareness to their time outside of the massage.”

Order Your Loved One Eternity Roses

While you may be tempted to pick up roses from your local market to give to your loved one, there’s an even better floral option that will last extensively longer. At Venus Et Fleur, we offer a wide selection of Eternity roses that can last up to one full year without any maintenance or watering. Our Red Suede Heart Box features a gorgeous set of roses in a red faux suede box. Leave your loved one speechless with 36 Eternity roses available in white or red. For a bouquet that’s a little more elegant, consider ordering one of our Marble Collection Arrangements in a large square or round box.

Recreate Your Wedding Menu

Regardless of how long you’ve been married to your spouse, a great way to celebrate your anniversary is by recreating your original wedding menu. Whether you plan a dinner date to create a dish together, or you want to surprise your spouse with a pre-made meal, this can be a fun way to celebrate the reason you two got together in the first place. If you want to divide the duties, have one person prepare the appetizer while the other prepares the entree.

Give A Personal Gift

Instead of buying your loved on a store-bought present for your anniversary, consider giving your partner something truly unique and personal. If you and your spouse have a collection of favorite songs you like to listen to, consider making them a mixtape or CD to play in their car. Or, instead of buying an anniversary card at the grocery store, keep the dying art of handwriting alive by penning an old fashioned love letter to your spouse. They’ll appreciate that you took the time to sit down to write down your feelings, and it’s something your spouse will likely keep for years to come.

Create A Scavenger Hunt For Your Spouse

If you’re looking for a creative and fun way to celebrate your anniversary, consider taking the time to create a scavenger hunt for your spouse. You can create individual clues based off of your relationship to help guide your significant other to a specific part of the house. Try incorporating fun questions and riddles for each of your clues. Many people who do this like to lead their loved one to a favorite restaurant or park where they’ll surprise their spouse with flowers and dinner, among other things.

If you’re interested in sending your spouse a one-of-a-kind floral arrangement for your anniversary, consider sending them a collection from Venus Et Fleur. We offer pre-made bouquets and custom bouquets that your spouse is sure to love, not to mention all of our arrangements can last up to a year with little to no maintenance!

If you have a family member or friend in a nursing home or assisted living facility, consider giving them the gift of beautiful stationery, pens, and stamps for Senior Citizens Day. There’s a good chance your loved one likes to receive and write letters to friends and relatives. Consider stopping by an office supply store to find the perfect stationery for them. If your grandmother has always loved dogs, consider finding a pad of paper that features cute puppies on it. Your elderly loved one will love seeing adorable puppy faces every time they write a letter, and they’ll think of you each time they write something down. Make sure to pick up a packet of stamps too, so your loved one doesn’t have to worry about paying for postage.

A Calendar with Important Dates

As we age, our memory tends to decline. If you have an elderly friend or loved one who suffers from memory-loss or dementia, a calendar is a great gift to give them for Senior Citizens Day. Oftentimes, senior citizens tend to forget about upcoming family birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays, and giving the gift of a calendar is a great way to keep those things at the forefront of their mind. If there are important dates you wish to add to the calendar, such as your family’s birthdays, go ahead and pencil them in.

A Sleep Sound Machine

As you may already know, quality sleep plays a vital role in maintaining optimal health and well-being. Unfortunately for many senior citizens, sleeping soundly can be a challenge, especially if they suffer from insomnia. One great gift idea that can help your loved one or friend deal with sleeping issues is a sleep sound machine. These unique machines offer an array of calming sounds to help people fall asleep faster and block out noisy distractions. At Venus Et Fleur, we’re proud to offer floral arrangements that perfectly capture the essence and aesthetic beauty of fresh flowers. Browse our website online or contact us today!

A Bottle of Wine

If your loved one or friend loves fine wine, this is the perfect opportunity to choose a nice bottle of vino as a celebratory gift. Spend some time in a local shop that has an excellent selection and if this is an area that you’re not well-versed in, you can ask for advice from the shop owner. While you don’t need to break the bank on the wine, make sure you purchase a bottle that is nicer than you normally would choose. When you pick the perfect bottle of wine, make sure that you write a heartfelt note or card to give along with it. You can tie a nice ribbon around the bottle, or there are many gift bags created specifically for a wine bottle shape. Whether you choose a crisp white or a mellow red, you’ll be sure to impress a wine connoisseur with an excellent bottle of celebratory vino.

A Gift Card

While some people may feel like a gift card is impersonal, but if your friend or loved one has moved to a larger home and is needing new furniture and decor, a gift card to a favorite furniture store or local decor boutique will be an excellent way to help to decorate the home while giving him or her the freedom to choose what to purchase. You can also purchase a gift card to a favorite local restaurant, or even purchase a spa package for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

If you don’t feel comfortable choosing a local store or spa to purchase a gift card from, there is always the option of a cash card that is treated just like a debit or credit card by most, if not all, retailers and restaurants.

Art

This is obviously a housewarming gift that is reserved only if you know the recipient well, but a beautiful art piece that has meaning to your friend or loved one may even bring a tear to his or or her eye. You can even have a particular piece commissioned, such as a painting of their previous home, a special pet, or of a place that has special meaning to the recipient. While this may seem like a risky gift, you’ll definitely leave a lasting impression of your deep relationship and make him or her feel extremely considered and special, and your painting will be forever a part of the new home and this exciting time.

For the girl in your life who loves jewelry, a personalized necklace might be just the thing to make her feel thought of and special. There are many ways to choose a design to reflect her own unique style too. You can pick between different metals, such as gold, silver, or rose gold, a small initial or a larger letter, chain lengths, and even adding a birthstone to the necklace. Monograms are also extremely popular and definitely take the original necklace idea to the next level. Make sure that if you do choose to have monogram necklaces created that you ensure you know the preferred two or three initials of each maid in your wedding party. It might also be a good idea to make sure that the metal shade you choose is also the preferred color for each girl. There is nothing more personal than wearing your own monogram or initial, and a necklace from you on such a special day will be the finishing touch to your bridesmaids’ wedding look. They can wear it down the aisle and every day after that to keep you and the memory of your wedding day close to their heart.

A Fun Tote Bag

Tote bags always make wonderful gifts and definitely will come in handy on the wedding day. With so many options to choose from, you can put as much personality into the bags as you like and show each maid how much you know and care. Here are some great ways to add your own personal flair:

Color or Print Choice

You can choose colors or prints to perfectly reflect the personality of each bridesmaid. Take the time to specifically evaluate the preference of every girl so they’ll be thrilled with their gift. It will perfectly describe their inclinations and personalities, while also corresponding with their closets!

Monogram

You can personalize their bags individually with an embroidered monogram. There are many different internet sites that offer this service, or you can even check and see if there are any sewing or alterations shops that offer custom monogramming. Take the time to choose a complimentary color that works well with the shade or print of the bag. Each bridesmaid will truly feel special and honored with her own personal monogram on her tote bag.

Add Some Goodies Inside

Give a gift that keeps on giving by adding some other little things inside. You can throw in some candy, bath bombs or shower gel, scented lotion, makeup, yummy snacks, bottles of water or juice, nail polish, hair ties, magazines, robe for getting ready in the bridal suite, or anything else that you would imagine the bridesmaids would like. This can be a hugely thoughtful gift and your dear friends or family members will love receiving little goodies inside of their cute and adorable tote bag.

Luxury Candle

Who doesn’t love candles? This is an excellent way to give a gorgeous gift without taking up a lot of space, so if you’re planning a destination wedding and have to make sure you’re packing smart, a candle gift is the perfect choice. While choosing scents can be stressful, a great place to start is to remember your bridesmaids’ perfume choice. If a friend loves floral scents, like rose or jasmine perfume, chances are she’ll love a gardenia perfumed candle. A sandlewood or ylang-ylang candle is a perfect idea for the cousin who loves spicy and musky perfumes. And a fresh candle, like a linen scent, is the surefire choice for a friend who adores smelling like clean laundry. Don’t forget the merits of an aromatherapy scent either, as it can take a late-night hot bath and turn it into a spa session. If you’re worried at all about a maid not loving her candle, you can attach a gift receipt to the gift box or card so she’ll be able to return it in case she would prefer a different scent.

Do's and Don'ts of Sending Roses

A lot of men balk at the idea of sending flowers to a potential significant other or girlfriend. There’s so much pressure to choose the right type of flower, the color, and the design of the arrangement that it becomes too stressful and overwhelming to send flowers. However, the gift of a bouquet or floral arrangement will always mean more than words can say, so this post will detail some do’s and don’ts of sending flowers so that you can be confident in your choice the next time you choose to send flowers. At Venus ET Fleur, we’re passionate about providing beautiful and elegant Eternity™ roses that can last up to an entire year. We love knowing that we’re in the business of providing smiles and happiness, and we want you to be sure of your choice when you pick out a flower bouquet. Shop our website today to choose a stunning rose arrangement that will be sure to thrill the heart of the lucky recipient!


Do Send Roses at an Appropriate Time

When is the right time to send flowers? A surprise delivery that is completely unexpected will definitely have the most impact. There is something about opening the door to an absolute surprise that means so much. Though flowers aren’t required to be sent for any major occasion, it is a good idea to mark a few important dates on your calendar. These always include Valentine’s Day, her birthday, and anniversaries of both your first date and your wedding anniversary, if applicable. You’ll also get extra points if you send flowers on the date of your engagement or when you first met. A surprise arrangement will also delight her to no end if you send a arrangement for her first day at work, to celebrate a promotion, or to make a special day even more wonderful. Even though flowers mean so much, it’s best to not send them following a casual first date. They may be viewed as insincere or that you’re trying too hard. Also, it’s best to never send flowers in place of an apology. While it is a sweet idea, there are times that words do matter, and an apology is definitely one of them.


Don’t Forget a Note

A sweet, heartfelt note will definitely be the icing on the cake for a gorgeous rose arrangement. Luckily for you, every Venus ET Fleur arrangement is sent with a beautiful, high-quality note that you can easily customize to say what’s truly on your heart. Our stationery is stunning and will be a special memento that she’ll keep long after the flowers are gone. Don’t say too much on the note, but instead say a few sweet sentences that will make her heart flutter. If you’re not good with words when trying to talk to your significant other, you can say what’s truly on your heart on a note that will be enclosed with your delivery. If you need help with what to say, try thinking about how she makes you feel and then try to convey that in words. You can always research and see what famous poets have said in history about love, but at the end of the day, she wants to read how you feel. Even a simple “I can’t stop thinking about you” will make her heart flutter.


Do Send Roses

Roses are a classic flower and always denote love and affection. This is why we’ve chosen roses at Venus ET Fleur.

Spring/Summer 2017 Wedding Color Trends

 

Wedding season is in full swing, and choosing wedding colors is one of the most important aspects of the event. It’s never too early to begin choosing a palette that will be the perfect representation of your personality, preferences, and theme of your big day. If you’re concerned about trying to decide on the ideal color combination, read on! We’ll discuss some of the most popular trends for 2017 spring and summer weddings, and how to infuse them into every aspect of your wedding day. If you’re looking for beautiful roses that will last up to a year after your wedding celebration and remain fragrant and vibrant for months on end, consider Venus ET Fleur! With an incredible selection of premiere luxury roses, Venus ET Fleur will be the obvious choice for amazing floral arrangements for your reception space or welcome table at the wedding venue. Contact us today to see how we can help make your wedding the day of your dreams!

Blush and Rose

For the bride who loves pink, incorporate the beautiful and delicate shades of blush and rose into table decor, bridesmaids dresses, and even your wedding gown! Colored gowns are gaining more and more popularity, and a soft pink gown will add some unique depth to your wedding day look in an unexpected way. If you’re not comfortable with wearing a pink wedding gown, try adding a pink belt, shoes, or even a pink reception dress for an unexpected look.

If you’re interested in only adding a few pops of blush or rose to your special day, consider your floral arrangements. Pink is lovely for bridesmaids bouquets, as it will compliment almost any other color without adding too much contrast and is available in many different flower options and choices. Another way to incorporate the shade is in your table arrangements. Add pink to your welcome table, reception design, or anywhere else you’re interested in placing floral arrangements. Consider Venus ET Fleur for the perfect luxurious rose arrangements that will add even more beauty to your wedding day and can be used as decor in your home after the event. Since they don’t require any upkeep or watering, you can order the arrangements weeks before the big day so you won’t have to worry about a florist delivering your arrangements late because they can’t find a venue that’s out of the way or hidden from a main road. You’ll love how blush and rose bring an air of classy sophistication with a delicate edge to your wedding day.

Navy and Coral

For a bride who loves to add a happy and fun color combination to her special day, navy and coral is the perfect choice! Navy is an often overlooked neutral that lends itself in multiple ways to many different aspects of wedding decorations and outfits. It’s an excellent choice for both groomsmen and bridesmaids, and can also be used for table designs, tie choices, and invitations.

Coral brings a bright and joyful flair to neutral shades and looks amazing on many skin tones. You can add some coral blooms to your wedding bouquet or to your wedding day look in the form of your shoes, earrings, or bouquet ribbon. Coral also brightens table designs and floral arrangements to bring smiles to the faces of your guests. When you order floral arrangements from Venus ET Fleur, try adding some pops of color by incorporating coral into your design for a beautiful and unexpected arrangement, perfect for your table designs or welcome arrangements!

Lavender and Green

For the bride who loves earthy colors, lavender and green is a beautiful combination and will lend itself well to both day and night weddings. Lavender is a lovely color that can bring a delicate softness to many different skin tones and hair colors. If you’re interested in adding some muted shades to your day, try adding gray or beige as a neutral with the tablecloths or bouquet ribbons. Green is also gaining in popularity, so you can even choose to have bridesmaids bouquets or groomsmen boutonnieres created from eucalyptus, ferns, bay leaves, vines, or even succulents. The possibilities are endless for choosing greenery bouquets and they’re also extremely cost effective if you’re trying to save money.

To incorporate lavender into your wedding day, consider adding lavender buds to your exit. Guests can throw them into the air for a sweet-smelling escape that also is eco-friendly! Try placing them in handmade paper cones, small buckets, or tulle bags to be passed out to each guest. If you are searching for a lavender-themed favor idea, you can create lavender sachets for each guest to enjoy after the wedding festivities are over. You can also design beautiful Venus ET Fleur arrangements to send home with family members and friends in your wedding colors for incredible favors that will last for up to a year. They’ll love the stunning colors that will remind them of your special day and the priceless memories everyone made that day.

Planning your wedding is a thrilling experience and a special time to make memories with friends and family members. While making decisions can be stressful, don’t stress out to the point that you can’t enjoy the process. If you’re trying to choose perfect rose arrangements that will last months longer than traditional flowers, check out Venus ET Fleur.

How to Choose the Right Rose Color for Every Event

When sending flowers for a special occasion, sometimes it can be stressful to choose the right color to reflect the milestone or special moment. With all of the different colors to choose from, it can be easy to struggle when picking the perfect color. In this post, we’ll detail some perfect colors that will always perfectly reflect the occasion that you’re celebrating. When you’re planning to send flowers to a friend or loved one, truly wow them with a luxury flower arrangement from Venus ET Fleur! Our stunning Eternity™ roses can last for up to a year, so they’ll be sure to bring plenty of smiles for months on end. Shop our website today to check out our customization options and see our beautiful special collections!

Romance

If you’re wanting to show your affection for a special lady or significant other, a red rose arrangement is the obvious choice. Red communicates true love, passion, and affection towards someone. You can always send red roses for Valentine’s Day, a special anniversary, as a surprise for a new love, or just to remind the recipient that you love her and are thinking fondly of her. As mentioned in a previous blog, a dozen red roses will undoubtedly convey a clear message of love. If you’re wanting to truly wow your girlfriend or wife, red roses will definitely do the trick.

Weddings

White is the traditional choice for weddings, so if a dear friend or family member is getting married and you want to send a celebratory gift, choose a white rose arrangement. White conveys unity, innocence, and purity, and white roses are known by many florists as “the bridal rose”. A white Eternity rose arrangement from Venus ET Fleur will definitely delight any bride-to-be’s heart and she’ll be honored by your thoughtful gift.

Thank You

Wanting to thank someone and show your gratitude in a big way? Dark pink roses are the way to go. This is according to traditional rose meanings, so dark pink is a great choice for someone who is well-versed in etiquette and tradition. However, if you know that the recipient isn’t particularly fond of dark pink, you can always choose a shade that you know he or she enjoys and appreciates.

Get Well

To bring some cheer or brighten someone’s day, choose an arrangement made up of brightly-colored roses. They can be a combination of any hues that you like or know that the recipient will enjoy, but it’s always a great idea to send bright and happy colors. With the huge selection of colors that Venus ET Fleur has to offer, you’ll be sure to find the perfect combination. If you’re interested in custom designing an arrangement, you can always contact us for help! We want to do our best to make your dreams come true.

Sympathy
If you’re wishing to convey your sympathy to a family member or friend, soft, muted shades are always the way to go. Many people simply choose white, but Venus ET Fleur has an incredible selection of delicate shades, such as champagne, blush, and pearl. Again, if you want a custom design created in memory of someone who may have passed, you can contact us for more information about our custom options and how we can help you create the Eternity™ rose design that will honor the memory of the deceased perfectly.

Whatever color you choose, sending a beautiful Venus ET Fleur rose arrangement will be sure to thrill the recipient and brighten his or her day. Check out our website now to get started!

The History of a Dozen Roses

Have you ever wondered why you send a dozen roses? Why not five, 14, or 22? There actually is a rich history behind the number 12 and why it has been the traditional amount of roses that are given or sent as a gift. In this post, we’ll talk about the reasons why we always send 12 roses to express affection and love. If you’re interested in sending a beautiful arrangement of our Eternity™ roses, contact Venus ET Fleur today! Whether you’d like to send the traditional dozen or larger arrangement, we’ll be happy to work with you to choose the ideal color and arrangement style to perfectly thrill the recipient! Contact us now or check out our website to get started on choosing your own expression of adoration through our Eternity™ roses!

A Bit of History

During the Victorian era, flowers were a popular way of expressing affection and feeling without ever saying a word. This was a time in history when words weren’t exactly used to talk about emotions, and affectionate outbursts of love and passion were frowned upon. Flowers began to have elaborate meanings and the color, shade, combination, and amount of them could describe an entire sonnet or poem. Many of these attributes that were assigned to the color and amount of roses has survived from this period in history. For example, a dozen red roses conveys a declaration of love and passion. 12 stems also communicates perfection and completeness, because the number itself is associated with an entire year, the 12 hours of a day, and the 12 signs of the zodiac.


The Number 12

As mentioned above, 12 is historically a number that signifies completion. Many cultures in the world have built their calendars and other systems of measurement on the number 12 and its multiples. This number appears in mythological and religious traditions, as well as being worshipped as sacred and mystical. Its recurrence has also been observed in both natural and sacred traditions, and is regarded in the modern world as a universal measurement and number. The significance of the number is seen in philosophy, religion, tradition, and nature. All of these aspects of the number 12 play into the gift of a dozen roses and what they communicate to the recipient.


Rose Bouquets

As you now can see, the amount of roses that is given has a deep and traditional meaning, which has transcended throughout the ages. Even if you or your loved one isn’t necessarily interested in tradition, a dozen roses will still mean more than words can say and don’t require an explanation. Sending 12 roses to someone that you care about will be sure to thrill them, all because of the number of stems that were selected. If you want to take your gift to the next level, you can even send multiples of 12, such as 24, 36, or 48. By sending a multiple of the number, you’ll delight the recipient’s heart even more and absolutely make an incredible memory together. This is a great idea to give for a special or milestone anniversary, birthday, or just because. Sending a dozen roses will still always be one of the most time-tested and meaningful ways to express a heartfelt sentiment.


Rose Color

We’ve discussed the importance of the color of a flower in a previous blog, but when combined with the number 12, you’ll definitely create a lasting gift that will be unforgettable. Red roses are classic and always convey true love, passion, and adoration. White roses, on the other hand, express purity and innocence. Pink can mean grace, elegance, and romance. You can also create a custom design or color combination that will mean a specific thought or feeling that you’re interested in conveying. Whatever shade the rose is, sending Eternity roses from Venus ET Fleur will be sure to make her smile. If you’re interested

Surprising your mom with a special day set aside just for her to relax and rejuvenate will make this Mother’s Day one to remember. Help her to feel refreshed and beautiful by spending time being pampered. If you want to get some time alone together and catch up, you can even schedule a few treatments for yourself and enjoy a long conversation with your mother while enjoying a relaxing manicure or soothing massage. This is also a great way to make a fun memory together and spend time without the hustle and bustle of life.

 

A Special Candle

If your mom or special motherly figure in your life loves the soothing relaxation and delicate fragrance of a candle, then you have your gift already chosen for you. Spend some time talking with your mom about scents so you can understand exactly what she would like, or if you want to be totally secretive, take a shopping day to browse several stores to choose the perfect scent. Pay attention to the different scent combinations, the container the candle is in, and even the shade of the wax. If you can, try to find a candle packaged in a reusable container. After your mother has burned away the wax, she can use the jar to keep makeup, jewelry, or other trinkets inside and the beautiful container as a decor piece. When you find the perfect candle, wrap it beautifully and include a special card. Your mom will always think of you when she burns the candle, and continue to remember your gift fondly while using the jar.


Lovely Jewelry

A gorgeous necklace, bracelet, or a set of earrings can light up your mom’s countenance and draw attention to her beauty. Finding the ideal necklace or earrings that your mother would prefer can take time, so start your search soon! If your mother has a favorite jewelry designer or store, try looking there for inspiration first. You can also search online for that perfect bracelet and find hundreds of options to suit your fancy. Finding that piece that you know will make your mother feel like she’s thought of and adored will mean more than words can say, and every time she wears that bracelet or necklace, she’ll think of your and your gift with fondness.  It really is the thought that counts!


A Gorgeous Bouquet

Probably the most popular gift for Mother’s Day, a beautiful floral arrangement being delivered to your mom’s work, home, or classroom can speak volumes about how much you appreciate and love your mother. If you can’t find the perfect bouquet and are running out of options, you haven’t tried Venus ET Fleur. When you send roses from Venus ET Fleur, you’re not only sending a perfectly created and curated real rose arrangement. You’re sending a one-of-a-kind experience that other floral delivery services can’t match. Our shipping capabilities are able to send our gorgeous roses worldwide. Have them shipped to your mother’s favorite spa or hotel and ask the staff to arrange them as an incredible, unexpected surprise. Our roses can last for up to one year when properly cared for, and their vibrancy and luxury will continuously celebrate your mother for much longer than normal flowers. Maintenance is truly easy too - the roses only require a light dusting every so often to maintain their color and to not be placed in direct sunlight or heat. Their gorgeous color and beauty will continuously brighten and illuminate wherever they’re placed for months on end. Venus ET Fleur rose arrangements don’t stop there though. We’re proud to offer an incredible selection of gorgeous and vibrant colors, specialty boxes, and designs.
