National Romance Month is a time to stop and reflect on how romantic you’ve been since Valentine’s Day and perhaps crank it up a notch. Sometimes in life, even the most romantic of souls get sidetracked by busy schedules and pressing issues, so Romance Month is the perfect time to give your relationship the attention, care, and romantic gestures that it deserves. Whether you have a significant other, are beginning a new relationship, or have been married for decades, everyone can benefit from a little more love and romance this August. To give you some inspiration, the experts at Campbell’s Flowers are sharing the best flowers to celebrate Romance Month and a little romantic trivia.
Romantic Flowers: Giving flowers is one of the most conventionally romantic gestures, and when meaning is attached, the act or gift becomes so much more. The red rose is the reigning king of romantic flowers as it has been a symbol of love, passion, and romance throughout the ages. However, there are many flowers that help us express our love, passion, and romance through the language of flowers. Orchids are a great choice for an elegant date night as they symbolize refined love and luxury. Daisies are appropriate for new and budding love as well as for those who are experiencing “true love.” Lilies are spectacular blooms that are ideal for long-distance relationships since they signify longing in addition to love, romance, and passion. Since Romance Month is celebrated in August, sunflowers are popular tokens of love and romance as they are connected to peace, love, happiness, adoration, and loyalty.
Ties That Bind: “Ties that bind” is taken literally in some places around the world. In Africa, braided strands of grass are used to tie a couple’s wrists together in a marriage ceremony, while in Mexico, a ceremonial rope is placed loosely around the necks of the bride and groom. In the U.S., we tend to bind ourselves with our sweethearts in more of a metaphoric sense. Romantic gestures will “knit” or “bind” his or her heart to yours, especially when the act is something meaningful between the two of you.
Love at First Sight: If you believe in love at first sight, you may be happy to learn that this phenomenon is indeed real. Love at first sight refers to when the love hormones, like oxytocin, dopamine, and adrenaline, are released upon initial interaction with someone special. Furthermore, love at first sight can happen in just as little as 0.2 seconds and is experienced by more men than women.
