Tips To Keep Your Valentine Rose Bouquet Affordable

A Valentine Rose bouquet is still the most popular gift to give a loved one on this special holiday. Red roses will probably always be the most popular choice but there are more affordable Valentine rose bouquet choices for people who want to give beautiful roses that don't break the bank.

Get Your Valentine Rose Bouquet In A Color Other Than Red

Red roses are in such demand for Valentine's Day that they will always cost more than roses of other colors. Yellow,pink,or white rose arrangements are usually priced lower than red roses. Mixed color arrangements,with or without red roses,are also usually a more affordable choice than an all-red arrangement.

Choose Short Stemmed Or Spray Roses For Valentine Rose Savings

Long stemmed red roses may be the Valentine standard but there are other types of roses available that are just as lovely. Short stemmed roses and spray roses are more affordable choices if you want to save a little money on Valentine roses.

Short stemmed roses have a fuller look than long stemmed roses and look beautiful in a round or square vase. Again,the savings can be substantial.

Most roses that are grown for the floral trade have one bloom per stem. Growers cut back stems of blooming roses to one bud so a larger flower will be produced. The effect can be dramatic but the extra care required to produce single long stemmed roses results in higher prices.

Spray roses are roses that haven't been pruned to one bud so each stem is allowed to produce several flowers. A bouquet of 12 spray roses could actually contain dozens of blooms. The flowers will be smaller but the full,lush look of spray roses resembles a bouquet your sweetheart might cut from her own garden.

Find A Valentine Rose Bouquet That Has The Vase Included In The Price

It's always a good idea to include a vase in your Valentine flower order,especially if you aren't sure whether the recipient has one. But adding a vase can add up to $20 to the price of a flower arrangement. Luckily most florists offer flower arrangements that include a vase for no extra charge. This can result in a substantial savings on a Valentine rose bouquet.
