How to Order Roses

Romantic holiday or any day—these rules always apply.

Skip the Reds
The only thing less creative than a bouquet of red roses is the generic holiday card your dentist sends out before Christmas. And at least he changes the card from year to year.

Forget Bigger is Better
You don't want to send a single bloom in a little vase (lame), but ordering an entire garden is a bit, well, tacky. Just go simple and tasteful.

Leave Her Office Out of It
Sure you're trying to be sweet. But she'll get really embarrassed when coworkers ooh and ahh—and then inevitably complain about their thoughtless boyfriends.

Refuse the Add-ons
Teddy bears, chocolates, balloons—oh my! If you have to spruce up the arrangement with extras, skip it and upgrade to a fuller one that needs no add-ons.

Hold the Baby's Breath
These tiny white blooms are just filler—making it look like you were too cheap to buy a full bouquet. If a dozen roses look skimpy in that vase, then throw in six more.

Order On Time
Ignore those incentives for cheaper buds delivered before V-Day. It's just missing the whole point—and no, she won't care that you saved $20.
