Love Love Love – Romantic Pink Arrangement
with Siam Tulips, Alstroemeria, Leather Fern and Celosia
Valentine’s Day! Sweet, saccharine and in your face everywhere you turn at this time of the year. It’s too easy to roll your eyes at the foil balloons, synthetic messages and plane loads of imported red roses.
BUT… There’s also an opportunity to use it as a reminder to celebrate love in all its forms. Like texting a Galentine’s Day message to your friends, or romancing yourself with a petal sprinkled bath! So bring it on! Make it a public holiday we say!
This week’s box is a love-inspired bunch, sure to tickle you pink. Intriguing Siam tulips (that are not related to tulips but actually to ginger!) and coral like celosia are the star of this collection. To add balance are long lasting stems of alstroemeria in a luscious pinky purple, and stems of leather fern. This brightly hue-d bouquet is as far from red roses and babies’ breath as we could manage, but chock full of love and style! Follow along with out tutorial for a gorgeous way to arrange your blooms! Or simply, gather in one hand, trim and pop into your favourite vase.
