Why Send Roses

Today is Valentine's Day and many will send roses to their loved ones. But that is so lack of imagination. Why? A vase of usually the same color of roses looks so monotonous to me. Plus, it is so expensive.

A colleague of mine sent a Powerpoint of Japanese ikebana. Ikekana is the art of flower arrangement, which dated back to the sixth century, when Buddhism was brought to Japan. The Buddhists offer flowers on the altar in honor of the Buddha.

Ikebana embodies the spirit of East Asian aesthetics and beauty. It evokes the balance of the strong and the weak, permanence and impermanence, full and empty.


Ikebana uses not only the flowers, but also the stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, style, and form. The structure of the flower arrangement often symbolizes heaven, earth, and human beings.

Traditionally, ikebana is placed in an alcove or a corner of the room, usually with a scroll. The flowers are changed according to the seasons. Imagine drinking tea in such a room with your loved ones.











So next year's Valentine's Day, you can
be more creative.

  1. Impressive! I once read somewhere that Ikebana is not the arrangement of objects but the arrangement of space!

  5. Everyone appreciates flowers so sending blooms on special occasions can be a great alternate to other kinds of gifts. Mother’s day is coming soon so if you also want to Send Mothers Day Flowers then I would highly recommend BloomThat services as they have great deals.

  9. Incredible but true!

    Follow this carefully. For months that I see pass on facebook and on any kind of site this message

    Loan testimony that speaks of a certain Angele MAURIN who grants money to people all over the world. At first I was a little pessimistic because I did not trust the offers of loan on the net. But after a friend of mine received a loan from her, my curiosity prompted me to take her contact by mail and after she had asked my problem she accepted and granted me a loan of 50,000 € with a

    Really low interest rate from her and I received the money 24H after without any protocol on my account. If you are in dire need of money, you can turn to him and you will be satisfied within 24 hours if you follow his instructions.

    Here is his Email: angelemaurin16@gmail.com
