Valentine’s Day Flowers To Make You (Or Your Significant Other) Smile

You can’t go far wrong with a hand-tied bouquet but sometimes, if we’re honest, young (and old) love gets it wrong.  Petrol shop carnations dyed a funny colour and volumised with baby’s breath and generic greens feel like an afterthought, or no thought gesture. Flowers should take your breath away and ideally be chosen with care. If someone hasn’t time to take a leaf from the Victorians and choose specific blooms, with specific meanings , at least help them choose a florist  who can be depended upon to deliver a beautiful bunch even on their busiest day of the year.

These are the blooms to start dropping hints about or to order yourself for someone special before it’s too late (and Feb 13 may just be too late)… best do it now.

BloomBox.ie


Bloom Box is best known for their absolutely stunning floral hat-box arrangements.

Joeanna Caffrey


Having trained with top florists in London, Joeanna Caffrey, born in Co. Meath, has an extraordinary vision for floral arrangements. Joeanna makes and sells her blooms exclusively at Avoca Dunboyne, Rathcoole, Co. Dublin and Kilmacanogue, or from her online shop.

The Crate


The Crate is the brainchild of childhood friends Claire & Steph who had a simple aim to make people happy – and by gosh have they achieved that. The duo has developed a unique offering of wildflower-heavy  bunches that are completely customisable to create the perfect appearance. They handpick seasonal fresh flowers alongside foliage and greenery to bring you a uniquely styled bunch; where no two bouquets are the same. Order before 1pm Monday to Friday for same delivery throughout Dublin.

Appassionata Flowers
