    OK, men. Here is a tip from Jada.

    Albertson's is having a great sale on roses -- $5.99 a dozen. Now, just imagine coming home with a dozen roses for your lovely. She will be overwhelmed with your thoughtfulness that she'll plant a big wet kiss on you and then you take it from there.

    Yes, I am just one woman trying to improve the lives of those around her! :) [face_mischief]

    I figure nobody's buying me any so I might as well spread the love to others . . . :D

    EDIT: Besides, the JBS is gonna love me for this! [face_mischief]

    ok trouble maker here....after working in a florist shop for a year can I just say there is nothing WORSE than red roses. I'd rather get a bouquet of dandilions. If you have to get roses, get any other color than red. red is sooooo boring!! I know there are women that will disagree, but...yuk. I HATE red roses. (part of this is due to working Valentines's Day by myself with a staff of temps! the horror!!!!) I really love roses, especially Columbian roses, they smell so pretty and lavonda and sterling are my favorite regular roses...mauve/pink and purple and they smell amazing! But I'd rather get regular flowers, anything really. Lilies, freesia, tuberose, daphne, tulips, iris, there really are so many other wonderful flowers....roses get all the glory. :p

    Zinnias and Gerber Daisies make a great statement! :D

    But for me, Gardenias, Magnolias and Orchids are my favorite cut flowers... Their natural perfumes always make me smile :)

    Besides roses, I LOVE Birds of Paradise. If done right in an arrangement, they look great.

    I think they may be avoiding this thread on purpose... Maybe if you re-titled the thread to trick them into coming in here ;)

    And princess I didn't even get into Orchid until I planted some Star Orchids on a dare and had them produce the first year... And every year after that!!! :eek: Last time I was there, they were finally starting to falter, but I think it's because they know I'm not there anymore ;)

    Beautiful flowers... White base w/ a royal purple star patterning in the center... Not very big, but delicate and elegant :D I miss those flowers :( But not that house :p

    Notice that only one guy has made a brief comment in this thread yet? Maybe they are avoiding it? Selective vision and they don't see the title? LOL [face_laugh]

    I can't remember the last time a guy gave me any kind of flowers *sigh* [face_plain]

    I was on calls. Got a flower store right next to work. Just trying to figure out how to get them home, drive Mick's tiburon with one hand, and survive all at the same time :)

    DH bought me some rose bushes, they ended up dying. But I knew I was in trouble when he bought them for me, I knew I was never getting another flower from him ever again.

    I was wrong!!

    I think I know where online to order the newly genetically created BLUE roses.

    Would that do Princess?

    They might cost like $200 a ROSE!
    Who knows.

    Actually if you renamed this thread, "Everyone's naked in here" all the guys will be here in a snap.


    I have a question, though. Do you know what the meaning of the color of the roses? I think red is for passion. I have someone who I might send or personally deliver to, and I want to convey the right message. Plus I have a friend who is laid up at home recovering from surgery, what flowers should she receive?

    I never even got to go to any of my Proms. :( (still somewhat better about that 26 years later) I always seemed to be breaking up with the guy I was dating not long before then. [face_plain]

    Maybe that was the guys' plans, so that they wouldn't have to take me.
    ?[face_plain] :p

    honestly, the color/meaning of roses went out the window ages ago with the whole anniversary gift/year etc. things..."back when mini pickles on toothpicks were the height of sophistication" :p But generally I think red roses are still considered love, etc. so if it's for a friend, maybe pink? or get creative....see what they have....we use to sell these gorgeous variegated Columbian ones that were orange with the tips lined in red/dk orange....they were beautiful...

    OH AND as for proms...that happened at my school. HALF the guys broke up with long time gfs so they wouldn't have to pay for crap to go...so there were a TON of people there with friends, people they were fixed up with/people they didn't even KNOW, and a crap load of people went stag...including a bunch of the "popular" people I knew....Me, yeah well this RETARD bf I had at the time kinda did that to me as well, so I can relate....so I went just went with a good friend.

    I think yellow roses are for friendship. Pink is romance. You can compromise and go with peach.
