In the lead up to Valentine’s Day, I have this advice for all men: if you have time this weekend, try and buy a great vase – something old and interesting from a flea market (like Rozelle) is always a good idea – and take that to your local florist and have them fill it. Then put it on her bedside table or desk. Often floral arrangements get ruined in the transition from paper to vessel; I certainly don’t own an huge range of vases. So this ensures that it will look gorgeous as a finished product. And you’ll get brownie points for the vase-finding, too – I guarantee. HF.
