the language of flowers with coops.


Aaah Valentine’s Day. Love hearts, romance and cupid. BORING! I’m thinking lust, passion, dirty, steamy sex. Cue the Salt-N-Pepa (or even…)

We all know there are some lovers out there with a little more than romance on the on the cards, who may want to give a special someone a sexy floral hint. I’m here to help.

So you think valentine’s, you think roses. The perennial favourite. The traditional ‘head over heels’ red rose is always a good option for love, but if you only have one thing on you’re mind? No. Just like a red-hot fire, coral and orange roses scream ‘desire and passion’ and are sure to get flames blazing and clothes on the floor. Mix in a little peach rose and it says ‘let’s get together’ and guarantees (with disclaimers) the ‘closing of the deal’.

Being the floral professionals we are, we recognise these clients as soon as we see them, often loitering around the red rose section but hesitant to commit to such a grand statement of affection, when all they really want is some action. But hey, we’re all professionals here so no judgment, just super awesome flowers. Give them a nudge towards the sunset coloured roses and a detailed description of the steaming hot results they’ll enjoy and watch how fast they whip out their wallet!

Oh and remember, bigger is always better… Happy Valentine’s Day Lovers!
