It’s almost that time again… Valentine’s Day! I know a lot of girls groan about this holiday and I don’t blame you. If you are single like me, it can seem like a day to just be aware of your relationship status and eat lots of chocolate (LOL). But, it’s not just for that. It’s a great day to “share the love” too. Whether you choose to share it with your family, partner or bestie, there is a little something for everyone!
Momma Payne is going to getting some beautiful Valentine Day flowers (Tonya, if you’re reading this, log off)! They are her favorite 🙂 My relationship with my mom means the world to me and I love any excuse to show her how much I love her. I’m sending them through FTD. I love that no matter where I am in the country, I’m sending flowers that I know will be high quality and beautiful! The arrangement below is called The FTD Stunning Beauty. You can get 20% off your order through FTD too at this link https://www.ftd.com/ftdlove20.
Here’s What’s In This Arrangement:
Fragrant Stargazers Lillies
Red Peruvian Lillies
Purple Matsumoto Asters
My flowers in the photos arrived 5 days ago! I know they look amazing! Here are some pro tips to make fresh flowers last even longer.
-Add pennies to your water – my Grandmother swore by this one. Pennies act as an acidifier, which prevents the growth of bacteria.
-Add sugar – A cube or a couple of tablespoons will make those stems stand right up. If you don’t have sugar, you can also use about 1/4 cup soda (not diet – Sprite or something clear preferably) and it will do the same thing.
-White vinegar – 2 tablespoons will inhibit bacteria and keep those stems pretty
-Vodka – don’t have white vinegar? A couple of tablespoons of your favorite clear spirit will do the same thing
-An aspirin – crush up an aspirin and place in the bottom of your vase before you add more water
And lastly, don’t forget to change your lukewarm water every few days!
