How to choose the perfect Valentine’s Day flowers

February 8, 2024


It’s that time of year again. Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to show your appreciation for that special person in your life, whether you’ve been together one year or fifty. The key, however, is choosing the perfect flowers. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the best ways to choose romantic, vibrant and long-lasting arrangements. Let’s get to it.

Always choose fresh

There’s one rule that all florists agree on: fresh is best. Not only do fresh flowers last longer, but they also fill a home with pleasant aromas and exude a unique and lively glow. On Valentine’s Day, we couldn’t think of anything more romantic.

Be careful, though. Despite being labelled as fresh, flowers from supermarket chains and similar shops just won’t live up to the standard of sprightly florist flowers. Our bouquets are the finest example, providing your Valentine with a gorgeous array of cut flowers arranged to perfection. You can’t beat fresh.

Pick flowers with character

Everybody’s Valentine has different tastes. While some people adore roses, others prefer arrangements with a more spring-style vibe. We always suggest sneaking in a few questions about their tastes before the big day (without being too obvious, of course). Browsing a florist shop and seeing flowers in the flesh before making a decision is also helpful. In short, as long as your arrangement bursts with character, you can’t go wrong. Originality is the most vital element of flower giving on Valentine’s Day.

Chat with one of our florists

Without stating the obvious, there’s nobody better to talk to than florists if you’re feeling out of your depth flower giving. With an innate passion for blooms, our staff are especially eager to help and can bring some of your disparate ideas on specific flowers into a beautiful, tailored bouquet. You can either come into one of our shops or give us a ring – either way, we’d love to chat!

Don’t leave it until the last minute

Last-minute panic buying never ends well. Nipping into a supermarket on the 13th of February will lead to shoddy flowers that last a matter of days. With more planning, you can find an entirely unique arrangement that’s bursting with character, all while being delivered directly to your door. We know which we’d prefer.
