•Do the roses I give on Valentine's Day have to be Red?

NO! People love receiving roses in other colors such as peach, pink, yellow and lavender. You don't even have to send Roses. Mixed spring bouquets are the next most popular choice to send on Valentine's Day from our shop.

•Does my flower gift have to be a huge bouquet of flowers and cost a lot? 

Of course not! A single bloom you picked out by hand at your local florist will mean just as much as a whole dozen of roses.
