Flower Power: Your Romance Decoder

We’re typically at a loss when sending flowers. After all, who knew that almost every detail sends a signal, right down to the color and number of petals? This Valentine’s Day, thanks to a little help from the pros at KaBloom, we’re bidding farewell to floral faux pas (and making sure we never, ever send red roses to our boss again).
