Make A Statement With Dot Flowers!
When Romantic Flowers Fade, Make Romance Flourish!
We'll save you the numerous metaphors and suffice to say that flowers are, in a way, all about romance. You can't ignore that some of the best things about love ñ from purity to beauty to passion ñ are best illustrated by flowers. Just ask the poets. But unlike flowers, romance doesn't have to be cut and dried to last forever. Use the petals from your romantic flowers to keep your relationship blooming with these fanciful ideas:
- Set the Mood: Place your flowers in a potpourri pot or ceramic dish, fill with water, and ignite a tea light underneath. As the water warms to the candle's soft glow, the beautiful scent will fill the room, helping you to heat things up. For another interesting way to mix candles and flowers, place petals and blooms in glass bowls with floating candles. They look beautiful and provide fantastic mood lighting. (But be careful ñ only a real Valentino could turn a house fire into a wonderful evening!)
- Awash with Love: Pluck the petals from your roses, tulips, etc. and sprinkle them into a bath to create a fragrant experience for you and/or your partner. If the scent has already faded from your blooms, simply mix the petals with a couple drops of essential oil before placing in the water. It's pure luxury!
- Raining Romance: Shower your partner with love by placing petals on top of a ceiling fan. At the right moment, slowly start it up and watch the air fill with romance! As an alternative, fill a balloon with petals and have your lover pop it. Use a clear or translucent balloon for a decorative effect, or an opaque balloon to add to the surprise.
- Dressed to Thrill: Carefully stitch petals onto some sexy underwear, or simply go bare beneath a blanket of petals. Need we say more?
- Love Letters: Spell it out! You can use petals to write "I love you" on your partner's dresser, or to form a giant, pillow-filled heart on the living room floor. You can even write short but sweet messages on the petals themselves, and place them in hidden locations ñ a briefcase, pocket, glove box, or underwear drawer ñ for your honey to find. We're sure your partner will get the message.
Of course, there are many other ways to use romantic flowers. If you've had a magical experience or a great idea for using romantic flowers, send an email to email@example.com and we'll try to include it on our site.
