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

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.

This hatbox arrangement is something unique if you don’t want to give someone roses in the usual glass vase. The white roses are delivered in a lovely keepsake hatbox???? . . . #bloomboxDublin #flowers #luxury
