Sweet Succulent Bouquet

This Valentine's Day, say it with succulents. They add an earthy hint of green to a colorful flower bouquet. Try adding a few varieties for added interest. Look to your local florist for a wide range of succulents. 

Fresh Flower Wreath

Who says fresh flowers have to go on the table? Make this stunning wreath with blooms from the garden or grocery store. It will keep for a day or two, so it's perfect for a Valentine's Day party. 

Rustic Ranunculus in Portable Container

Pink Ranunculus is great as a Valentine's Day display. Each bloom varies slightly in shade, meaning that even if you use just one kind of flower, you'll still have a look with lots of depth. Try pairing the pink flowers with a rustic metal container for artistic contrast.

Delicate Branch Bouquet

Attach pink blooms to branches with hot glue for an elegant and long-lasting arrangement. This is a modern take on traditional bouquets, and it will impress for months, not just on February 14.

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestion: Faux Cherry Blossoms

Chic White Bouquet

Create a custom Valentine's Day flower arrangement by sticking to one color. Here, we created a chic white bouquet with hydrangeas, mums, and snapdragons. Display the bouquet in a pink vase and you've got a DIY Valentine's Day gift.  

Pink Blooms

Looking for a bold flower arrangement on a budget? Stick to inexpensive stunners like carnations. When clustered together, they make a full and dramatic arrangement. Display the Valentine's Day flowers in a low vase. 

Vintage Vase Arrangement

Coordinating vases lend cohesion to groupings of various flowers. Pick three different types of flowers within the same color scheme. Cut stems corresponding to the height of each vase and arrange in a group.

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestions: Roses, Peonies

Geometric Bouquet

Skip that plastic bag and gift a grocery store bouquet with style. Create a geometric black cone and fill it will a mix of colorful flowers. Choose a simple color like black so the flowers pop. 

Bedside Table Surprise

Who wouldn't love waking up on Valentine's Day to a beautiful floral arrangement sitting on their bedside table? Not only will your loved one feel cherished first thing in the morning, but this simple gesture will set the mood for the day ahead.

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestion: Dahlias

Basket of Blooms

A bouquet of flowers doesn’t always have to go in a vase on a table. Nontraditional containers, like this metal hanging basket, turn your flowers into festive decor.

Valentine’s Day Flower Suggestions: Tulips, Iris, Peruvian Lilies, Lisianthus

Fresh Flower Chandelier

Take that store bought bouquet to new heights! Create a handmade piece of Valentine's Day decor with just a few simple crafts supplies. Display your custom creation for a festive Galentine's Day party. 

Elegant Crystal Arrangement

A crystal compote serves as a beautiful base for this pink-and-purple flower arrangement. A hidden grid of transparent or florist's tape across the top of the bowl supports the cloud of blooms.

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestions: Hydrangeas, Grape Hyacinths

Glass Hurricane Flower Display

Present traditional Valentine's Day blooms in a new way. Cut stems to 6 inches and remove leaves. Pack them tightly in a straight-sided glass hurricane or bowl accented with ribbon.

Valentine's Day Flower Tip: This sturdy arrangement is especially helpful when transporting your blooms from place to place.

Peony Bouquet

Want to give an impressive Valentine's Day gift that's beautiful and inexpensive? Turn to peonies! It only takes 3-4 stems to create a stunning DIY bouquet. Wrap the stems with washi tape and add our free printable gift tag. 

Matched Blooms Arrangement

Make a less-expensive bloom seem more impressive by grouping flowers of the same or similar shades in one vase. We wrapped plain cylinders with colored burlap and edged them with narrow velvet ribbon.

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestions: Carnations, Peonies

Valentine's Day Flower Tip: Match your vases to the flowers to reinforce the Valentine's Day color scheme.

Long-Lasting Arrangement

For a Valentine's Day flower arrangement that you can admire past the holiday, gift an exotic plant that has already been potted. Not only will it brighten up any room, but the unique blooms will keep things fun and lively.

 

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestion: Orchids

 

Valentine's Day Flower Tip: For an optimum lifespan, ask your local florist for tips and tricks for keeping your plant alive.

Full and Cheap Bouquet

Make a sweet statement for your sweetheart with flowers that cost a bit less but fill a vase beautifully. Roses are the most expensive flower of the holiday; get more stems for the same amount by looking for seasonal flowers that come in a rainbow of hues. Get two to three dozen and place them in a large footed bowl for a breathtaking alternative to traditional bouquets.

 

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestion: Tulips

 

Valentine's Day Flower Tip: Avoid bending and drooping stems by cutting the tulips short, like these, so they can be arranged tightly enough to hold each other upright.

 

Bud Vase Grouping

Go beyond a traditional arrangement -- a grouping of small bud vases can be an unexpected way to display your Valentine's Day blooms. Choosing a variety of flowers in different colors is an easy and inexpensive way to showcase your love on Valentine's Day and to decorate the home, too.

 

Valentine's Day Flower Suggestion: Roses, Peonies

 

Valentine's Day Flower Tip: Be sure to cut your stems short and remove all but the top-most leaves to easily fit your flowers in the smaller vases.

Jewel Tones for Your Valentine

Think outside the box when it comes to Valentine’s Day flower ideas and opt for a deep jewel tone, like these dahlias. Rich hues like these bring warmth to your home but still stay within a palette that works for winter months.

Wineglass Rose Display

Use stemless wineglasses to create this easy and colorful floral display. Cut rose stems close to the bloom and place in an inch of water in each glass. Line up glasses on a mantel or arrange on the dining table. Brightly colored flowers will pop, while lighter shades lend a subtler look.

Roses in a Metallic Vase

Sometimes simple arrangements are the most beautiful. Start with an on-trend metallic vase, and select blooming roses for a full -- but easy -- bouquet. Pick your roses a few days prior to Valentine's Day so they'll have time to open before the holiday.

Low-Maintenance Succulents

Is your valentine not the type who likes tending plants? Succulents are a lower-maintenance option that will last a long time and look great on a coffee table or desk. Intersperse some succulents with tinges of red to keep in the Valentine's Day theme.
