Ode to Valentine's Day Flowers...
by Benjamin Kovacs on Feb 28, 2019
This past Valentine's Day we heard a sad story that reminds us why we are in the preserved flower business.
...My boyfriend, who is 1000 miles away, sent me a beautiful bouquet of a dozen roses. With fingers trembling with excitement, I tear through the cardboard, making sure to be extra gentle when the perfectly sculpted petals came into sight. They were absolutely beautiful with a red vibrant like spring and buds full like there were a million petals in each flower. But even as I pulled them out of their packaging and carefully assembled them in the vase, petals and leaves began to scatter. It was lovely and romantic at first, like seeing snow fall. But as the days wore on, the petals curdled into a muddy brown. Now on my desk lies a ring of muddled brown, like old snow that has been shoveled out of the streets and thrown to the side, a nuisance to be rid of...
At Royal Roses, we believe Love is something that defies time, writes song lyrics, and transcends miles and distances.
Don't show it in something ephemeral. Preserved roses are real roses that are carefully prepared to maintain their beauty for an entire year. So every time your loved one glances at the decadent arrangement you sent them, it looks exactly how they did when they first received them.
The same sensation of joy, the same elation of receiving something special is relived until the next year...when you can do it all over again.
