Whether you are looking for a lil love this Valentines day or perhaps looking for a unique way to show your romantic side we have some gorgeous gift ideas for you.
We know how hard it is to stand out from the crowd when every man and his dog are in the Valentine’s day spirit, but we are one Sydney florist that prides itself on offering alternatives outside of the (long stemmed rose) box.
And whilst “I love you” are often the three little words that are spoken/whispered/screamed from mountain tops over Valentines Day, they are not exclusive. There are many three little word combinations we all long to hear, so why not choose an appropriate sentiment, and unique fresh flowers to match. So now all that is left, is to work out what you want to say, right? Give him/her a message loud and clear without uttering a single syllable.
“Under Your Spell”
Intoxicatingly fragrant and in the most beautiful plum mauve tone, Love Potion roses are the perfect way to tell them you are under their spell.
For many, roses remain an old fashioned favourite, hard to topple off from their pedestal of being the go-to romance flower, but for many more, they are disappointed to find that today’s roses are no longer fragrant. Garden roses offer the perfect solution as they have a heady fragrance that is unforgettable, and whilst they tick the box for roses, they are only available in shorter stems, making the arrangement more compact. Keep them by themselves with Andromeda around the perimeter in a vase, or mix them with pastel green, and purple mixed flowers for a garden delight posy.
LOVE LIES BLEEDING:
“Nothing Without You”
Looking for a dramatic way of telling your lover how lost you are without them? How about an arrangement featuring Amaranthus Caudatus, a deep crimson red rope like tassel. It is an incredibly dramatic flower, ideal for Avant Garde style arrangements,
The ‘tassel flower’ is an unusual, eye catching flower that provides interesting texture. It is ideal to use around the perimeter of a bouquet or at the front of a tall flat backed arrangement, drawing the eye down and through the composition of the piece.
Try teaming it with other rich romantic reds, deep pinks and chocolate tones for something especially dramatic and luxurious.
LOVE IN THE MIST:
“You Intrigue Me”
Nigella Damascena has a ferny, almost fennel like foliage that forms gently around the blooms, creating a soft mask or mist. The “peekaboo” blooms start off as interesting puffs, open into rich blue toned, flower and then change into equally attractive seed pods. They are an old fashioned annual flower best suited to posies with an English Garden feel. They are not a dramatic bloom, but they are an interesting choice; perfect to tell someone that they are mysterious and intriguing….that they keep you guessing what is coming next.
“Let’s Geddit On”
Want a cheeky way to tell the object of your affection what you are hoping your Valentine’s Day evening might look like? The Naked Lady, or Amaryllis Belladonna, is a small bulb flower that is born from an initially leafless plant, the leaves usually form the following season. They are gorgeous alone in a vase, but can be teamed with other blooms in complementary colours.
“You Sexy Thang”
The gorgeous tropical hanging Heliconia chartacea, also known as Sexy Pinks, could very well be the way you may like to go. It certainly isn’t declaring your unconditional eternal love, but it is just as telling. Plus, with Valentines Day falls in the heat of summer in Australia, so by choosing a tropical flower you will have an extended vase life.
