Happy Day of the Overpriced Bouquet

Why is it that a normal bouquet
of roses nearly
quadruples on this day of romance? 

And who are the suckers that are actually
paying these premium prices?  

(If you are one, please, please don't admit it). 

Red roses are nice. 
Sure, red roses are romantic. 
But haven't I taught you anything?  Go with the unexpected!  It's not just about saving a coin...it's about adding spice to your home! 

Try a mixed array of carefully selected florals. 

Use a bold vase and an 
equally daring brilliantly colored petal

Even pastels can add a punch when paired properly. 
Try rannaculas!

Just think outside of the box
No rule states that a Valentine arrangement must be a dozen of overpriced roses.  

Enjoy a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Love these ideas! Once we get the bedroom all done, we'll be sure to add a lovely little flower arrangement. :)

Great ideas. Love doing all of one color as well in a bold vase. Can really add some pop to a room. Love the blog! one of my new favorites.
