Roses for Love


Tip 261

from Clipart.com

Not the Whole Rose

Have some fun in marriage and show imagination and creativity by using rose petals. Whether you use real rose petals purchased from a florist, petals saved from summer rose bushes and dried with silica gel, or fake rose petals from a craft store (hey, to me, it’s the thought that counts—not whether the petals are real), think of all sorts of ways to send a message of love to your mate.

Sprinkling rose petals seems like such a youthful, fun thing to do whether your age is 22 or 82.

Try sprinkling rose petals on the bed–or a fine layer on top of the bubbles of an aromatic bubble bath . Sprinkle petals on a nicely set dinner table. Line a plate with rose petals and serve a chocolate cup cake. Sprinkle petals along a path inside or outside.

Send your mate a note with rose petals inside the envelope—for these it would be best to use real rose petals so the fragrance would also be in the envelope. If you’re giving your spouse tickets, a gift card, or a gift put rose petals in with it.

Freeze a single rose petal in each ice cube for cold drinks.

Put a rose petal to mark the page of the book your hubby or wife is reading.

What do you think? Can you suggest different ways to share fun and show love in your marriage?

P.S. If you’d like to know about what the color of roses signify or the number of roses given, check out the Teleflora website.

    Ever heard about the way in which you can sing your way to love .Well, Valentine’s Day songs are just the melodious treats you’ll want to set the ball rolling for your love life. So sing some Valentine’s Day songs rich in thoughtful lyrics to the person you love and get your hearts on the correct note. No problem if you are a little tone-deaf, it is possible to usually arrange for somebody else to sing your love songs on your behalf, or take your beloved to a musical show.

    Instead of dinner you might want to serve several different romantic finger foods. It’s just as romantic and allows a couple to enjoy a night of being in each other’s presence. On the other hand you might want foods that are geared more towards being an aphrodisiac.
