With Plush Animals …Floral Friday

Because this is Valentine’s Day, I came up with the idea to do something slightly differentFF021414b for you today.  A departure from the traditional dozen roses and box of candy thing appeals to me.  Not that there’s anything wrong with a dozen roses.  I just think that making an effort to adjust the tradition will make a more positive, lasting impression on your lover.

There is nothing ambiguous about this beastly solitaire.  The peachy color of the single rose simply says, “Let’s get together”.  The large “Ty” gorilla underlines the statement, just in case the recipient doesn’t know rose code.


Is your lover whimsical and light-hearted?  Do you know his or her favorite cartoon character?  To show that you pay attention to your special loved ones less serious side, find a plush version of his or her favorite teevee character or favorite type of cuddly critter.  Take the idea over the top with some plush roses.  In this case, ol’ Bugsy accompanies a trio of red roses in an antique swung vase. Who could resist?


If your lover’s tastes are more elegant and subdued, you certainly want to find a happy, but sensuous way to show how much you care.  I brought out a fancy Haeger vase and filled it with three varieties of red flowers, but no roses. Further departing from tradition, instead of Champagne, I’m including an earthy Loganberry wine to enhance a relaxed, warm evening.  A subtle symbol of my devotion is the red and black plush puppy.

Do any of these combinations inspire you to do something similar for your lover?  You can take these as your own, then add or adjust them to your own tastes.  Perhaps dinner or a show, or not.  It’s up to you.  You don’t have a date?  Treat yourself to a personal gift with a fun twist.


The Blue Jay of Happiness wishes you a Happy Valentine’s Day.
