Whether you’re lovers of art & culture, dining & dancing or just love spending time together, the city has something for everyone. As an alternative date idea, why not head to the wonderful Dublin Zoo for an afternoon getting to know some of the worlds most beautiful and exotic animals.
Why Send Flowers this Valentine’s Day?
Do you know about the history of Valentine’s Day and how the name became associated with romance? The day was originally commemorating the death of a Christian Saint called Valentine who was executed in the pursuit of the love of his life. Emperor Claudius II believed soldiers should only have one true love – Rome. A Christian Bishop married the pair in secret in defiance of the orders from the Emperor, who then executed Valentine on 14th February. He allegedly left a love letter to his distraught lover signed “From your Valentine” which is why we still use the phrase today. Now you know!
Luxury Red Roses in Dublin
Roses have always been a symbol of luxury and love. Their elegance and beauty have stood the test of time and a dozen, fresh red roses are the top-selling bouquet as a romantic gift for Valentine’s Day. Roses were Venus’ the Greek Goddess of Love’s favourite flower as she believed they symbolised strong feelings. Today they symbolise love and romance and are a timeless way to say ‘I Love You’.
Other flowers to add to your Romantic Valentine’s Bouquet
Flowers were used to convey secret messages in times gone by. You could have a whole conversation with one bouquet if your loved one knows what to look for! Pink roses are used to convey messages of love gratitude and appreciation and are an extremely elegant flower. They add a subtle backdrop of colour and add a delicious delicate fragrance to an arrangement.
White Roses are symbols of spirituality and new beginnings. White roses are traditionally linked with marriage so if you have a very special question to ask, White Roses might say it for you! No bouquet could be complete without a spray of lilies, symbolizing promise, passion, life and fidelity. They add an impressive fullness to a bouquet, last a long time and smell absolutely wonderful.
