The history of Valentine’s is long and stretches back centuries. As fertility was associated with agriculture, flowers became the gift of choice and for centuries has symbolized love, marriage and romance. Additionally, sending flowers on Valentine’s Day goes back to the old fashioned custom of sending flowers to express non-verbal messages popularized by Charles II of Sweden.

Today, Valentine’s Day is a day to show appreciation to all of the people that you love – including yourself.

It’s a time when the people you love the most and even those you have barely spent time with, get either a sweet greeting or gorgeous flowers like red roses from you. Flowers are an energy and mood booster and when you add a Valentine's Day themed design, it is all the more heart warming!

When you send flowers to your loved ones and friends - you feel good and your recipients feel marvelous – everybody’s happy! Flowers are truly the ultimate feel good gift.

On Valentine's red roses reign supreme as the prime conveyor of romantic love but many also choose to send a mix of colours to express happiness, friendship and joy.  Check out this interesting info-gram to learn what each colour "says".

So if you are looking to continue the tradition this Valentine’s Day, let the best florists in London, St. Thomas and Strathroy help you express your love and devotion to that special someone, a family member or an amazing friend or “galantine” by delivering flowers for you.

Forest of Flowers also has balloons, chocolates or plush bears to go along with your flowers to make your floral delivery complete.
