Roses have always been the quintessential Valentine’s gift. Yet there is an abundance of flowers that create stunning Valentine’s Day bouquets rich with color, texture, and story. This year, the EverWild Florals Team has created a floral wishlist for the Kansas City local who’s ready to step it up a notch from the traditional red roses this Valentine’s Day.
1. Protea Pink Ice
Protea flowers have swept us off our feet for the last few years, and they’re guaranteed to wow us into 2021. The large statement flower mixes well with both bright and muted tones. It’s exotic and unusual, creating the most unique Valentine’s Day arrangements. EverWild Florals uses the protea in The Darling, The Bombshell, and The Showstopper arrangements during the week of Valentine’s.
2. Stargazer Lily
Another statement flower to get a hold of this Valentine’s Day is the Stargazer Lily. The Stargazer, a hybrid of the ‘oriental group’ of lilies, is a fragrant addition to any Valentine’s Day arrangement. Their large pink and white blooms are bold and beautiful. Check it out in The Sweetheart.
3. Sweet Pea
The sweet pea flower is a soft, fragrant flower that adds a butterfly-like texture to an arrangement. Soft and playful, it comes in a variety of shades and offers a linear quality. Sweet Pea elevates a design and brings any Valentine’s arrangement together. See it work in Love First.
Lisianthus is a versatile flower, usually with 2 to 6 budding blooms on each stem. We’ve used this as an alternative to the traditional baby's breath in our red rose arrangement. By doing this, lisianthus adds another point of interest that delivers that something 'extra' you've been wishing for in your rose arrangement. View this fresh perspective on a classic in The Lover.
5. Dried and Preserved Flowers
Preserved flowers create a unique texture and lush style that sets it apart from a fresh bouquet. Preserved bunny tails, pampas grass, and sun palms and so many other preserved varieties make it possible to experiment and play with this new trend. And what says ‘our love will last’ better than an arrangement that will never wilt? Shop All Designer Arrangements.
