This means writing a blog post a lot more often than we have been doing!

We recently opened an Instagram account, so for those of you who would like to follow us check as out @progiftnet for some beautiful arrangement ideas, as well as just beautiful images of different types of flowers, such as the one on the right.

To start, we thought you might enjoy a brief history on how Valentine's Day came to be: St. Valentine's Day began as a celebration of several saints named Valentinus, and martyrdom stories were invented for the various Valentines and were associated with February 14. One of the most popular stories was of Saint Valentine of Rome. At that time, some soldiers were forbidden to marry, and St. Valentine would go against the law and perform weddings for these soldiers anyway. For this and other 'crimes', he was imprisoned and later executed. An added embellishment to this story states that before his execution he wrote a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.

The 18 Long-Stemmed Red Roses Bouquet
The change between martyrdom stories to the celebration of romantic love came in the High Middle Ages, at the time of Geoffrey Chaucer. This is when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers and sending greeting cards. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards, which we find today and the giving of flowers and gifts has grown from romantic love to expressing your affection for all of those around you, including friends.

So the question then becomes, what should be send to our loved ones and friends? Well, here at we're here to help you with exactly that question. First, we'll start with the most traditional - red roses, and® Presents the 18 Long-Stemmed Red Roses BouquetA beautiful bouquet of 18 long-stemmed roses red roses artfully arranged in a glass vase with lush greens.
