Secret Shopper: The best bouquet for V-Day

By Michelle Ervin

Whether you're hoping to profess your undying love or simply show your affection this Valentine's Day, the red rose is one of the most popular ways to do it. As the holiday of Cupid nears, we called up a high-end florist and a moderately-priced florist to see how their long-stemmed roses measured up.


Dozen long-stemmed  $145 - $165

If you're looking to splurge on your sweetheart, you can treat him or her to a dozen long-stemmed red roses from Demarco-Perpich, located at 1044 Queen St. West. Ranging in price from $145 to $165, you're paying for presentation and the quality of the flowers. Check the flower heads and the stem size to see the difference in quality.

Roses are paired with apple-green coloured viburnums and complimented by dark, glossy, green foliage instead of clich├ęd accents, such as baby's breath and fern. Wrapped in bio-degradable cellophane and natural-coloured tissue, the arrangements are tied with twine. Prices include a creamy white, embossed card on which Demarco-Perpich will print a personalized message.

The high-end florist also sells spring-cut flowers, offering an alternative to the traditional red rose. These flowers include the pianese and the tulip, with nice arrangements starting at $75. Call 416-967-0893 for more information.
