Valentine's Day is a week from Thursday.
Are you ordering flowers? If you haven't already done so, do it now, according to the florists at Mrs. DeHaven's Flowers and Gifts.
If you have to order on Valentine's Day for same-day delivery, call your florist first thing in the morning.
But, since Valentine's Day falls on a Thursday this year, why not celebrate your love all weekend long? Send flowers early with a "Looking forward to a romantic weekend" or "I couldn't wait to say I love you" note, they suggest.
Don't want to get roses? Get creative with flowers that will transport your sweetheart to another place or relive romantic memories.
Relax in an imagined "bed-and-breakfast" with a low traditional bowl of garden roses, ivy and wax flowers. Place the flowers on a small tray with teacups filled with gourmet teas and crumpets.
Take in the French countryside with an arrangement of fresh herbs and wild flowers such as heather, daisies and miniature roses.
A loose arrangement of garden-style flowers such as tulips, hydrangeas, ranunculus and roses in a clear glass vase or decorative container is always gorgeous. Or send a bouquet of hand-tied flowers, a look popular in Europe.
Or think even more exotic with tropicals or orchids.
