Creative Flowers For Creative Romance Month

At Schaaf Floral, our expert florists invite you to celebrate creative romance month this February with non-traditional floral bouquets, arrangements, and potted plants. Although we traditionally recognize red roses as the official flower of romantic love, you can just as effectively convey your feelings of passion on Valentine’s Day with a variety of flowers, designs, and colors, as long as they speak to your special someone’s personal taste, personality, and individual style.

Valentine’s Day is a day of romance. It’s a chance to chase away the winter blahs, and to warm the heart of a new love interest or a longtime sweetheart.

How To Use Pantone’s Color Of The Year

Sometimes it feels like Minnesota winters will never end. Let’s face it: cold temperatures hit the land of 10,000 lakes sooner than most parts of the country, and we’re among the last to see those welcoming signs of spring. You may have to put up with whatever Mother Nature is unleashing outside, but thankfully, you can count on Schaff Floral to help you infuse your home with warmth and color. We’ll even help you bring a bit of exoticism and tropical Hawaii into your home – using Pantone’s color of 2018 – Ultra Violet. It is a shade of purple that is created when blue and red are combined. It is an ideal color to use if you’ve got accents of white and silver in your home for winter decor. In spring and summer, you’ll be able to combine it with bright colors for a color infusion that brings the outdoors inside.

A Rainbow Bouquet For Your Bestie

One of the best opportunities to show your appreciation for the women in your life is coming up in February, and no, we’re not talking about Valentine’s Day. Instead, we mean the day before, Galentine’s Day, a newish holiday devoted to celebrating the love women have for each other.

This concept was first proposed in a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope took all her ladies out to lunch, gave them gifts and officially declared February 13th “Galentine’s Day . . . only the best day of the year.” We here at Schaff Floral are happy to participate in any occasion that gives us reason to focus on love.

Brightest Blooms For Get Well Gifts

When it comes to offering a get well bouquet, nothing but the brightest blooms in the bunch will do. We here at Schaff Floral are talking red, orange, yellow . . . the colors that telegraph the most optimism and vibrancy. Flowers have the ability to lift our spirits and literally breathe life into a room, both oxygenating the air and introducing some nature. At a time when your recipient may be home or hospital bound, a dash of cheerful flowers is just the thing to perk them up.

Winter’s Best White Flowers

At Schaff Floral, we’d be hard pressed to pick our favorite season for flowers, but winter, with its glorious palette of whites, is definitely at the top of the list.

We love an arrangement that mimics the snowy scene outside and yet makes us feel all of the warmth of the season inside. White arrangements, far from being austere, are comforting and elegant. We like to see them paired up with some of the more traditional designs we see for the holidays, with their rich reds and greens.
