Roses are Red and Valentine's Day is nearly here!

Did you know that Valentine's is now being celebrated across a whole week and not just one day? Here are a few lovely ideas to celebrate the week, starting on Tuesday, 7th February, with Rose Day! 

Rose Day: Tuesday, February 7th, 2017.
"I Love You Red Rose" #24489

We can make beautiful roses by twisting 160Q balloons. I love this twisted rose. It can be used simply as a display in a vase, or as an accent detail in a design!

Here is a design that I made a few years ago of a teddy bear holding a single red rose.

As many of you know, I love to make Fantasy Flowers, and the rose is one of my favourite. To find out how to make a single red rose, watch the video below.

I wonder if this is a tradition that we have not heard of, or simply a marketing tool to make Valentine's an event bigger event? For those of you with shops and stores, I would certainly embrace it and use it as part of your social media campaign!

Wishing you a fantastic and profitable Valentine's!

Happy Ballooning!
