It’s that time of year again! Last year we wrote a blog ‘Be My Valentine’ all about what the meaning of common Valentine’s day bouquets say about you and your loved one. This year, however, noting the cost of red roses on Valentine’s Day and wanting to take a different spin on the tradition we’ve listed flower alternatives that might be more suited to your loved ones personality. Here are our top ‘non-traditional’, yet still romantic, floral pics for the upcoming holiday.
Soft, delicate, yet still unique with a bit of attitude in the mix. Dahlias are perfect for anyone who likes to travel and be adventurous but is still a softy at heart.
Lilies are our favourite at Lucy’s Florist! They smell incredible and can last for up to two weeks. Traditionally associated with royalty, purity, and passion they’re a beautiful flower to give. We love the way they look in the riotous Amethyst bouquet next to the pink Gerberas and smaller Snapdragons.
Orchids are perfect for those who enjoy soft, romantic date nights by candlelight. With their delicate petals that are perfectly symmetrical, they’re a stunning plant to behold. Orchids represent love, luxury, beauty, and strength. They were also thought to be an aphrodisiac in ancient times!
Pink roses symbolise cheerfulness and sweet love. They are the perfect go-to gift for anyone relaxed and gentle. We love this beautiful bunch ‘Mamma Mia’.
