Celebrating romance may seem a little out of place in August – but in reality, it makes a lot of sense! After all, love and courtship is a year-round affair. National Romance Month takes place six months after Valentine’s Day, and is located between the iconic holiday and the holiday season, infusing a bit of passion into the summer months. Of course, the experts at Griffin’s Floral Designs celebrate love and relationships every day of the year – and so we have the ideas, inspiration, and romantic flowers that you need to surprise your sweetheart this month.
Flowers of Romance: Roses are considered the official flowers of romance, especially red roses, which represent romantic love and passion. Red tulips send a strong declaration of romantic intent, daisies denote young love, and peonies represent marital happiness. If you are looking for the perfect flower for your particular relationship, just ask!
Love Online: In a just a few short years, the number of single people searching for love via online dating sites has jumped from 10% to 40% in 2017. This trend is being seen across all demographics, from young adults to senior citizens. In fact, 20% of married couples in the United States met online.
Wake Up to Romance: Over 10,000 marriages per year are thought to be a direct result of the couple beginning with a very ordinary activity – sharing a cup of coffee.
Living in Love: There are 18 cities and one county in the United States whose names are inspired by love – from Romeo, Colorado to Love Valley, North Carolina. Here in Ohio we have Loveland, and Loveland Park – but perhaps nowhere is more romantic than Valentine, Nebraska.
Griffin’s Floral Design loves all things romance, and we love helping people to express and convey their love with romantic flowers. Whether your sweetheart lives in Columbus, or you are sending your love across the miles, we are your source for National Romance Month.
