California Flower Mall shares foolproof tips for men to pick perfect Valentine’s Day flowers she’ll love using Pinterest. CFM opens 24/7 before Valentine’s Day for perfect last minute DIY flowers.
Showing love and affection with the perfect Valentine’s Day flowers from California Flower Mall for a girlfriend, wife or sweetheart –without having to ask them– is a lot easier thanks to Pinterest. Gathering clues, asking for hints, inquiring about her favorite color may spoil the element of surprise especially when the questions come a day or hours before Valentine’s Day. “One of the reasons we’re open all night before Valentine’s Day and late Valentine’s Day evening is men tend to wait until the very last minute to do Valentine’s flower shopping. Luckily, most women are pinning the things they love and dream of on their Pinterest boards which are publicly available, so guys can quickly learn her favorite colors, her style and possibly her favorite flowers,” says Mark Chatoff owner and president of California Flower Mall.
There are other trends a man may wish to consider before making a Valentine’s flower selection for his beloved.A Society of American Florists study shows, of the 88 percent of men celebrating Valentine’s Day with a flower gift for their spouse or significant other, 63% will purchase red roses. However, it is worth noting that red roses – the most expensive flower of the season – are clearly not equal in the “got to have them” flower preferences of women. The same SAF study reports that when women are asked what color roses they prefer when buying for themselves – about 37 percent would choose red roses, 20 percent would choose mixed rose colors, 9 percent lavender, 7 percent peach, 7 percent yellow, 6 percent pink, 5 percent white and 8 percent don’t know. The study also reports men respond well to vivid, crisp colors like red, orange, purple and blue, while women tend to relish pastel tones of pinks, peaches and lavenders.
Taking a a few minutes to discover what she finds “Pinteresting” will ensure flower picks she absolutely loves and if she’s one of nearly two-thirds that prefers colors other than red, guys may save money too.
