Anniversary flowers

Have you heard about the man who forgot his wedding anniversary and…well it may be a bit of an old joke but it certainly is no joke if it happens to you. For many men, anniversaries are something to be feared. But there’s no need for that. In today’s electronic world there are enough tools around to make sure you don’t forget. You could opt for a bells and whistles weekend away or some gorgeous jewellery to treat the missus but then again, a flower delivery usually does the trick beautifully. And better still, if you’re sending flowers, you can preorder your anniversary flowers. So there really is no excuse… and if you’re looking for Cheap Anniversary Flowers then you’re in luck!

The choice of anniversary flower is very wide. Most men go for roses. A rose is the flower of love and very romantic so always a good choice. But if you like to be more traditional, here are some other ideas.

The first anniversary is often signified with pansies. In William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the juice of a pansy blossom is a love potion “Before, milk-white, now purple with love’s wound, and maidens call it love-in-idleness”. For the fifth anniversary it is traditional to give daisies. (Did you know that in France, daisies are known as marguerites?) Daffodils are traditionally sent on the tenth anniversary. Daffodils symbolize rebirth and new beginnings but also chivalry and eternal life – and after 10 years of marriage, these are appropriate things to ponder. Only after 15 years of marriage are roses given.  Other milestone anniversaries and their flowers include Iris on the twenty – fifth anniversary, sweet pea for the thirteenth anniversary, nasturtium for the fortieth, and violets for the fiftieth anniversary.

And last but not least, be sure to personalise your flower delivery with a card and a message that expresses your undying love…
