Love is in the air and so is the scent of roses, lilies and all sorts of flowers. Just because they say chivalry is dead doesn’t mean that the act of giving flowers on Valentine’s day needs to die along with it. Skip the regular red rose bouquet and try these creative arrangements.
Give flowers with a meaning
Red chrysanthemums are another way to say ‘I love you’. If you don’t want to stray too far from the red theme, red tulips are an eye-catching way to declare your love to that special someone. Get your flowers from any Zucchini outlet.
Give an edible arrangement
Skip the flower store and pop into a sweet shop to get your Valentine an edible arrangement. If they love chocolate, you can get them a Ferrero Rocher bouquet. Alternatively, you could get them a bouquet with a combination of all their favourite sweet treats. Get all your sweet treats Sweet Street Village Market.
Make it colourful
If you don’t want to struggle to look for a flower with the exact meaning you’re looking for, stick with the roses and get as many colours as you can. Show the person you love that they add all the colours of the rainbow to your world.
Here’s how to dye your own roses.
Give a wreath with succulents
Flowers don’t have to be an impractical gift. You can twist your red rose bouquet into a wreath and add some succulents for contrast. Your Valentine can use it as a rustic decoration for their balcony, front door or even in their living room. Order your succulents from Herbivore Garden.
Give a teacup bouquet
Take a gift you plan on giving your Valentine and combine it with a bouquet. Stuff a cute teacup with a dried bouquet of flowers. It can be used as a decorative piece or taken apart. Find little clay teacups at Tope Pottery.
