August is National Romance Month – and is your perfect opportunity to lavish your sweetheart with unexpected gestures of love and affection. After all, love knows no season, so there is no reason to wait until Valentine’s Day or your anniversary!
The team of experts at Robertson’s Flowers has been inspiring true romantics across Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, and Wyndmoor for over 90 years – and we have seen a lot of true love and romance during that time. We are here to help you choose the perfect bouquet or arrangement for your special relationship.
Few people would dispute the rose’s designation as the flower of love. The red rose is the official ambassador of romantic expression, and those who receive a classic bouquet of red roses need no further explanation as to what they mean. If you are looking for a traditional red rose bouquet, Robertson’s Flowers has the freshest, most beautiful roses in Philadelphia.
However, there are other roses that have inherent romantic significance as well. For instance, orange roses signify excitement and passion; lavender roses express that your love is constant, and pink roses invoke a sweet adoration. White roses are often chosen as bridal flowers, as they have come to signify a pure, new love.
Did You Know? There are over 3,000 varieties of roses, but many are not available commercially.
When combined with flowers, both chocolate and fragrance make a mesmerizing romantic gift. Chocolate includes a natural ingredient that stimulates the brain in a way very similar to falling in love, and fragrance can have a powerful effect on our moods. Fragrances evoke feelings that are generally linked to memories, so adding a fragrance that is positive for both of you is sure to elevate the romance levels.
Romantic Actions to Incorporate into Your Daily Life
Now that you have the tools, like flowers, candles, wine, chocolate,… typical gifts of romance, you need actions to back up your words and gifts. These can be grand romantic gestures such as surprising your SO with a romantic weekend getaway, giving them a fabulous, expensive, and romantic night on the town, taking them dancing or to a show, or treating them to a home cook gourmet dinner. These are all great and provide an essential boost of romance into any relationship. But, it’s the daily acts of romance which are just as, if not more, important for keeping the spark of romance burning bright.
