Silver julep cups are the perfect size to hold small Valentine's Day bouquets. When arranging, cut some of the blooms short enough so they sit on the lip of the vase and insert a few stems of frothy filler flowers for interest.
A crystal compote serves as a beautiful base for this pink-and-purple flower arrangement. A hidden grid of floral or transparent tape across the top of the bowl supports the cloud of blooms.
Tuck a homemade mini card into a bouquet or a loved one's lunch bag. Heart-shape paper punches and rubber stamps make mass production easy.
This perky pail idea punches up that Valentine's Day standby of a dozen red flowers. Cover plain buckets with decorative papers, wallpaper scraps, or pretty magazine images using decoupage medium and let dry. Then amass at least a dozen blooms for a lush arrangement, immersing the cut tips in plain, lukewarm water to keep them fresh.
This rose heart is sure to be a hit, whether you create your own arrangement or order it from a florist. A shaped block of wet floral foam is covered with rosebuds. Green leaves are pinned to the sides to cover the remaining foam.
Tulips are gorgeous flowers and are available in a wide variety of pinks, reds, peaches, and purples. Avoid bending and drooping stems by cutting the tulips short, like these, so they can be arranged tightly enough to hold each other upright.
If your sweetheart collects vases, pitchers, or bowls, then using one of these treasured objects will make even a simple rose bouquet a sentimental favorite.
