Do you remember my post from last year on Valentine’s Day? Since I currently live in Finland, I could confront theory with practice. It turns out that this country does not fall head over heels with the Valentine’s Day. In vain, I looked around and around in search of exhibitions decorated with tons of hearts, cupids and Valentine’s I was able to find some traces of the upcoming Lover’s Day. This is what I found, and decided to post here with some commentary.
On the occasion of Valentine’s Day Finnish florists make tiny bouquets. But don’t be misled by the overwhelming amount of tulips – the tulip in Finland is not a flower for special occasions. Among the flowers in pots orchids are the most popular, especially the white ones.
Fazer is as usual minimalist and elegant – gifts from the exhibition in the company store.
Fazer chocolate box which you can get at any store. This one is especially exhibited on the Valentine’s Day. Flavor – hazelnut.
This chocolate box weighs a kilo!
As you can see, one does not need to hold the title of the Master Chef to impress a loved one with making a pasta with pesto 🙂
A gift for Valentine’s Day does not necessarily have to be edible.
One doesn’t have to be deadly serious either 😉
It sometimes happens that one can find everything in one place.
The richest valentine shop exposition I was able to find.
Finns love sweets. Therefore, chocolates for Valentine’s Day are in abundance 😉
