Here we’ll go over in detail the many different kinds of layouts you can customize and tailor to your expectations. Get ready to blow your significant other away with these floral arrangement pieces.
The Classic Valentine’s Look: Roses
The first recommendation is an oldie but goodie. Roses make for the perfect traditional Valentine’s Day flower bouquet. Not only are these flowers great for arranging in a basket or planter, but the petals themselves have been known to entice the lover’s heart as well. Sprinkle them on the bed, lay them out in a path on the floor, or even take a bath with the petals to make a romantic evening even more perfect. When you’re not cleaning up the petals that have undoubtable gone everywhere, roses pair well with other roses, meaning that pink, red, yellow, and of course white colors can all fall into the same basket. Otherwise match them up with slightly purple peonies to give a colorful gift of love.
“The rose is a flower of love. The world has acclaimed it for centuries. Pink roses are for love hopeful and expectant. White roses are for love dead or forsaken, but the red roses, ah the red roses are for love triumphant.” - Unknown
Springtime Flower Arrangement
Maybe you’re going for something that’s not as traditional, but still fits with the seasonal vibe. Never fear, a springtime floral arrangement is here. Many florists like to mix it up and throw in a lot of different and vibrant colors that signify the start of life and being born in the spring months. After all, this is when nature really gets a head start on new life anyway! So take this literal metaphor to heart and get a new start on your love life in the home. For the most part, spring flowers that are included in arrangements tend to be:
- Sweet peas
All in all this Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate with your loved one. Pick out the flowers that possess the most meaning for you and your significant other and spend the day with them. Flowers merely represent this love, it’s up to you to spend quality time with your love.
Wild, Contrasting Colors
Maybe your love life is in need of a little spicing up. Perhaps you want to kick-start a new era of romance between the two of you. Or maybe you just love vibrant colors in your DIY floral bouquet. Whatever the reasoning, be sure to include lots of flowers that add extreme colors but never clash. At the base of the arrangement, consider having blue lisianthus, blue veronica, larkspur, and aster to create a purple foundation. On top of that, go with dark flowers that are about the same hue in color, like the ruby dahlias and purple “Black Prince” snapdragon. FInally the rim should consist of colors that bring it all together, accents like hosta, ivy, and euphorbia.
