Flowers & Chocolates: Start with the Sweet Basics
You know that Valentine’s is just around the corner when you start seeing heart-shaped balloons, flowers and boxes of chocolates wherever you go. These are the basics and usual ways of showing your love for someone. At Greenhills Mall, you’ll find a great selection of shops that’ll help you find the right bouquet of flowers and sweets! Make sure to check out these spots.
Fun fact: the practice of giving flowers on Valentine’s Day comes from the old-fashioned custom of sending floral bouquets to pass non-verbal messages. Back in the 18th century, each flower had a specific meaning attached to it, and it was very possible to have a conversation using only flowers. For your special someone this Valentine’s, send the right message by finding the right bouquet of flowers. One of the go-tos, Tecson Flowers has made a name in the flower business with 40 years of providing top quality flowers, plants and orchids to hobbyists, collectors and commercial growers in the Philippines. You may visit Tecson Flowers at Greenhills Theatre Mall, or call them up at +63.2.7446638.
There are many reasons as to why chocolates are one of the most common ways to express love on Valentine’s Day. For one, chocolates are powerful mood enhancers as cocoa raises serotonin levels in the brain and even triggers desire as an aphrodisiac (thanks to certain stimulants found in it). For whichever you have in mind, you’ll find that Boulangerie22 in Shoppesville has a rich array of chocolate cakes, delectable specialty cakes, cookies, pastries and more.
