The Fab Feb Valentine’s Floral
Have you ever heard the term “thanks a bunch” and been confused whether or not the person was actually thankful or just being a tool? 90% of the time it’s definitely the tool option, but just every now and then, someone means it. For example, the other day, someone gave me a chocolate, and I said “thanks a bunch” – I meant it and that’s not just because I’m a florist and I say bunch in every second sentence.
Why am I writing this little rant? well, it may because it’s a cracking 38 degrees today and very few thoughts that make sense come out above 35. The other reason, however, of which I think we can all agree, is that if someone tells you “thanks a bunch” when they receive this Valentine’s bunch, you can be sure they meant it.
There is the classic bunch that is full of red roses and sometimes this is nice, but it’s also nice to change things up a bit, and that’s what we like to do!
As always The Grounds style floral is abundantly wild, or generally abundant AND wild. So our take on a Fab Feb Floral (also known as The Grounds Valentines Floral) is no different. Packed full peach & pink tones and sprawling with greenery, we hope this is one that inspires you to get creative and think outside of the box when your compose your next masterpiece:
Here’s a breakdown of what’s in this bunch:
Locally grown Pastel David Austen Roses
These guys are known for their exuberant flower and scent, as well as growing on an attractive shrub and foliage. Bred with a variety of soft pastels and colour options, they’re a great hero flower for your bunch.
Locally grown Hydrangea
These have made a real resurgence in popularity over the last couple of years. They had a wrap for being ‘an old lady’ kind of flower, but really how can you go past such a pretty full bloom? These work perfectly to add texture, offsetting the more plump roses and Pieris, alongside the other more delicate flowers and foliage.
I think of Aussie backyards when I see and smell this popular foliage. A great scent and unique looking leaf. Combine the scent of eucalyptus with rose and you’ll have Aesop banging down your door for your secret scent.
Gum Foliage also adds a beautiful, wild feel to the bunch. Its tones of green are a beautiful backdrop to the soft pastels.
Delicate and as pretty as hell. What else needs to be said?
These pretty little drooping bells come in a crazy amount of different colours and varieties. We’ve used them in this bunch as a beautiful little surprise. Off to the side of the bunch, it’s as though they are growing at the base of a bountiful forest.
