DON’T FORGET THE FLOWERS

Roses are traditional and expected. There is nothing wrong with going this route. But if you want to do something very personal and special, have a look at what’s blooming right now. Cut a dozen of any one, or a combination. Then arrange them loosely in a vase. If you have herbs in your garden, add a few fresh sprigs of rosemary and chive stems for greenery.
