It’s the month of love and gifting florals is such a beautiful way to show your love and appreciation to your significant other! If you’ve ever wondered why we gift bouquets, it’s a tradition that’s marked back to the Victorian era when flowers would be sent to love interests to express their feelings. Roses represent beauty, passion and romance (see why it just makes sense?) and throughout time the tradition has cemented itself as a gesture of love.
This bunch in particular has been inspired by the florals that bloom in The Grounds Garden; it’s beautiful, loose, unstructured and has plenty of movement.
For a little inspiration on piecing together something personal this Valentine’s Day, follow along for a few of our in-season picks.
Trailing Burgundy Amaranthus
This is such a beautiful vibrant shade of burgundy, with long hanging ropes to create an elegant feel. It’s grown locally and is in it’s peak at the moment – we are obsessed!
We’ve chosen scented roses in shades of pink, to give the bunch a more modern feel – there’s nothing traditional about us. Pink roses are actually symbolic of gratitude and appreciation, who doesn’t want to feel appreciated on Valentine’s Day!
Soft Gum Eucalyptus
We love using gum for it’s scent and it’s texture, and it’s beautiful grey foliage.
There are so many different varieties but this is one of our favourites.
Queen Anne’s Lace
Very popular in garden inspired bunches, this green and white flower is named after its resemblance to lace. A very old cottagey flower, it’s usually used as a filler, as it adds interesting texture to bouquets.
