Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you have a partner or a special someone you want to surprise this coming Valentine’s Day, then you should start thinking about what heartwarming gifts to give them. If you are struggling to figure out what your partner would like on that special day, you can always go for the classic choice – flowers!
Indeed, flowers are always in demand during Valentine’s Day. As such, flower shops that offer daily flower delivery, like Charlotte Puxley, are already preparing for the busy days ahead.
If you want your Valentine’s Day gift to be simple yet unique at the same time, you should definitely consider spicing up your floral bouquet to make it stand out from the others. To help you, here are some tips on how to make your Valentine’s Day floral bouquet more interesting.
1. Look for unique floral arrangements
While they might be the usual choice for a Valentine’s Day floral bouquet, grabbing a bunch of red roses and simply tying them together do not exactly manifest much thought and imagination. If you want your loved one to receive a unique gift on Valentine’s Day, you need to give them a unique floral arrangement.
Try to find their favourite flowers in advance or at least their favourite fragrance or colour. Then, ask the florist for help in choosing the floral arrangement that best reflects your loved one’s character.
2. Keep it monochromatic
Some people refuse monochromatic colour palettes for their floral bouquets because they think of them as boring. However, this is not always true. Most of the time, choosing flowers of the same colour can bring your floral display to the next level. It can make your floral bouquet look really lush and can automatically create a voluminous appearance.
Here at Charlotte Puxley, you can find that most of our floral arrangements are decorated based on specific colour schemes, ensuring coherency and balance that is pleasing to the eyes.
3. Keep your flowers hydrated
Flowers look their best when they are fresh and hydrated. Of course, no one wants to receive dehydrated flowers on Valentine’s Day, unless they are specifically made for a dried floral arrangement. To make sure your flowers remain fresh on Valentine’s Day, place them in a bucket of cold water or in the sink. Let them sit for at least 2 to 4 hours to hydrate before beginning to arrange them.
4. Balance and proportion are everything
To make a floral bouquet more attractive and interesting, florists often add spillers, thrillers, and fillers to it. However, when assembling these additions, it is important not to give one flower too much of the spotlight.
Sometimes, balance and proportion can make all the difference in your floral bouquet. Rather than emphasising the centre of a specific flower, position it to just show its side or silhouette, and try to make it connect with the rest of the arrangement.
5. Changes are okay
Just like relationships, floral arrangements sometimes require some changes before you find the ideal fit. As such, you should not be afraid to change the arrangement of your floral gift days or even hours before Valentine’s Day. If you have found a design that you think your loved one will like more or that suits their personality better, do not hesitate to make changes to your floral arrangement and go for that design!
There is no better way to make your loved one feel more loved on Valentine’s Day than to give them an astonishing and well-thought-out bouquet of daily flowers. To ensure the uniqueness of your floral gift, do not be afraid to spice it up by following the tips shared in this article.
