Popular Valentine's Day Flowers in Singapore
In Singapore, like many other places around the world, Valentine's Day is a special occasion celebrated with the exchange of flowers as a symbol of love and affection. Here are some popular Valentine's Day flowers in Singapore to impress your partner with!
Red roses have long been associated with love and passion, making them the quintessential choice for expressing deep emotions. The vibrant red hue of the petals signifies the intensity of romantic feelings and the enduring nature of love. The classic beauty of red roses transcends cultural boundaries, making them a timeless and universally understood symbol of affection.
The traditional gesture that we have seen one too many times is having a bunch of red roses arranged in a simple bouquet. Compared to that, we prefer mixing red roses with complementary blooms like baby's breath or eucalyptus to add texture and enhance the overall aesthetic. This combination not only conveys love but also adds a touch of sophistication to the arrangement. If roses are too striking for you, consider arrangements that use roses to add a pop of colour and texture, nothing too overwhelming, but romantic nonetheless.
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Tulips offer a unique and elegant alternative to traditional roses. Their slender stems and distinctive shape create a sophisticated look that stands out. Tulips symbolise perfect love, making them a meaningful choice for expressing romantic feelings. As an alternative to roses, tulips bring a fresh and modern perspective to Valentine's Day floral arrangements.
Gerbera daisies are known for their vibrant and cheerful appearance, making them a delightful choice for expressing love on Valentine's Day. The wide range of colours available allows for creative and personalised arrangements that cater to the recipient's preferences. Gerbera daisies symbolise innocence, purity, and happiness, adding a joyful element to your Valentine's Day bouquet. Here, we have styled a set of bud vases with nude gerberas paired with bright purple asters and sweet pea, perfect for a sweet Valentine’s Day look.
Rum and Raisin
Sweet peas are delicate and fragrant flowers that symbolise blissful pleasure, making them a charming addition to a Valentine's Day bouquet. Their pastel hues and graceful tendrils create a soft and romantic atmosphere. Consider combining sweet peas with other flowers like roses or lilies to create a fragrant and visually appealing arrangement that embodies the sweetness of your affection.
Many florist shops in Singapore offer mixed bouquets that combine different flowers and colours to create a visually stunning arrangement. These bouquets allow for a more personalised expression of love by incorporating the recipient's favourite flowers. They also allow for a fun mix of colours that will surely impress the recipient of your gift! With the ability to play with more sizes, colours and textures, mixed bouquets are definitely a sight to behold.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Valentine's Day Flowers
Consider Your Partner's Preferences
One of the most thoughtful ways to express love through flowers is to consider your partner's preferences. Take a moment to reflect on the flowers and colours they adore. If your partner has a favourite flower, incorporating it into the bouquet adds a personalised touch that shows you've taken the time to consider their individual tastes. Even when ordering our valentine bouquets, you are able to request specific colours or flowers to best suit you and your partner. Feel free to pen down your preferences and we will make up the perfect arrangement for you.
Adding A Personal Touch
To elevate the gesture and make it truly special, consider incorporating personal touches that hold sentimental value for both of you. Handwritten notes are the best way to do this and we make this easier by complementing every arrangement with one. Simply leave a message upon checkout – share a special memory or write a message that speaks to the unique bond you share – and we will do the rest! The personal touch of a heartfelt note definitely enhances the emotional impact of the gift.
Customised Flower Arrangements
If you are looking for a truly special and meaningful arrangement, consider customising one. With some prompts on your partner’s favourite colours, flowers, and style, our florists will be able to make up a one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day gift.
Flowers may die but sending them is more than a fleeting gesture – it's a timeless expression of love that goes beyond words, creating a tangible and beautiful connection between you and your partner.
