Love is a year-round affair, and that is why we are excited to celebrate National Romance Month every August. Romance Month gives us another beautiful opportunity to remind our significant other that they are amazing, appreciated, and adored! True love and flowers just go together, like peanut butter and jelly, so the experts here at Beneva Flowers are sharing some of the most symbolically romantic blooms. We also thought it would be fun to would fill you in on a little bit of romance trivia that might inspire you to share the love this August. Why wait until Valentine’s Day? This is a great month for romance since the summer starts to wind down, but the hustle and bustle of the holiday season have yet to begin.
Flowers Say It Best: Red roses are well known as the universal flower of romance and passion, but did you know that there are many other flowers that represent different types of love? For instance, if you want to celebrate a new relationship or express your true love for someone, turn to daisies. If you are looking to brighten someone’s day by reminding them of love and adoration in a happy, peaceful, and uplifting way, then sunflowers are your bloom! Orchids are best to commemorate a refined type of love with luxurious romance. Finally, lilies are the perfect go-to flower for sending to a partner that may be traveling or living far away as they symbolize longing, passion, romance, and love.
The Start of Something Beautiful: Approximately 10,000 marriages a year are thought to be attributed to a single humble beginning- sharing a cup of coffee. So if you met for a casual cup but felt some sparks, perhaps you should bring some flowers the next time you meet up at your favorite coffee shop.
Love at First Sight: The popular phenomenon “love at first sight” has been proven to be true. When you first make visual contact with someone, your brain has the ability to release love hormones such as adrenaline, dopamine, and oxytocin in just 0.2 seconds. Furthermore, it has been discovered that more men experience love at first sight compared to women.
Love & Chocolate: It’s true that there is a natural element in chocolate that causes the brain to react the same way it does when you are falling in love. Therefore, a box of chocolates is a natural romantic gift that pairs seamlessly with a stunning bouquet of flowers.
Modern Romance, by the Numbers: In 2017, about 40% of single Americans were looking for love in cyberspace, and 20% of marriages represent those who met through online dating sites. Today, in 2022, 35 million Americans admit to utilizing dating apps to meet others. While this once unconventional way of meeting has become the norm, some other traditions are falling by the wayside. Only 4% of prospective spouses ask parents for permission to wed, and only 20% of men will get down on one knee to pop the question.
August, AKA National Romance Month, is the perfect chance to surprise your beloved with flowers that convey your affection. Love is in the air in Sarasota, and Beneva Flowers is here to help you to express it.
