Lilies will always be special to me. I fondly recall the argument I had with my wife about the perfect flowers for our wedding. I wanted orchids and she wanted roses. We both stood our ground until our wedding planner recommended lilies. We immediately drove to the flower store and designed some beautiful arrangements for our wedding (Note: we named our dog Lily as a way to commemorate our wedding).
15 years later, I’ve given my wife a beautiful Red Rose and Lily Cube from 1800Flowers as an early Valentine’s Day gift. It is a contemporary bouquet of gorgeous red roses and elegant lilies, hand-arranged in a stylish glass cube vase. It is a perfect gift for my wife because they arrangement incorporates lilies (the flowers we had at our wedding) and roses (the flowers she wanted at our weeding).
When I presented the flowers to my wife, she was surprised and impressed. She loved the arrangement and could not stop talking about it. My wife placed the arrangement on the island in the middle of our kitchen for all to see.
