Roses for Valentine’s Day, right? It doesn’t have to be.
Although roses are the traditional flower choice for Valentine’s Day there are a myriad of choices to express your love.
If You Want to Stay with Red:
Red is the color of love so choosing a flower in this color still holds the implied message. Tulips are a popular choice and they have such a unique nuance about them. Tulips continue to grow after their stems are cut so they take on a life of their own, changing each day.
A mixed red bouquet can include a variety of flowers that are available including alstromeria, carnations, hypericum berries, gerbera daisies, or ranunculus.
If You Want to Impress with Modern Elegance:
Tropical flowers are the perfect way to send something different. They are incredibly long-lasting and have fun colors and textures. Personally, I think a vase of all orchids looks stunning all on its own. Heart-shaped anthurium and ginger come in Valentine’s colors but any tropical arrangement will be impressive.
