Happy Valentine's Day! My husband surprised me with a gorgeous vase of pink roses this morning, which sent Carson into tears. Roses are a little scary, I guess.
Anyway, today, I have a message for men: Buying your gal roses today? Let me pass on a few friendly tips:
*Skip the baby's breath. Really, tell the gal at the floral counter no.
*Step away from the carnations. That's all that needs to be said.
*A nice, compact round bunch is lovely (think of a wedding bouquet, in a vase).
*Go with one color (i.e., a bunch of orange roses, or a bunch of pink tulips, rather than a mixture of the two).
