In the spirit of Valentine’s Day quickly approaching and knowing that there will be lots of floral bouquets being ordered across the next few days, we thought we would offer our readers a spotlight on our Top 5 Favorite Valentine’s Day Flowers. This should make ordering your flowers a lot easier. Now, the flowers we’ve highlighted either typically come in or are known for their shades of pinks and reds (which are traditional for the holiday) so that is the color we would recommend ordering them in even if there are other options. However, there are certain circumstances on Valentine’s Day when ordering a color outside of red and pink, like the color white would make sense. Also, if you are less of a traditionalist, flowers are flower to some degree so any color will do! However, our suggestion would be to stick with tradition and go with pink or red!

  1. Tulips: These flowers always offer a very modern feel when it comes to any Valentine’s Day flower arrangement. Despite being such a modern flower, tulips actually date back to the 16th century in Eastern Europe and were first found in the U.S. towards the end of the 19th century. They are some of our favorite flowers at Nosegay D.C. flower shop so we celebrate them a lot outside of Valentine’s Day as well.
  2. Roses: Now you can’t talk about Valentine’s Day and love without talking about roses. We’d recommend sending these flowers for traditional romances and to really express your love. Remember, every color rose has a different meaning so if you want to say “I love you” make sure to send red ones. The main reason why the red rose has become synonymous with Valentine’s Day is because the rose is often referenced in romantic poetry, songs and paintings therefore, forever linking the two.
  3. Orchids: The great news about orchids for Valentine’s Day is you could be enjoying them into March and remembering your awesome holiday because of how long they last. They will definitely outlast your traditional flower bouquets, however, they will likely require a bit more money when it comes to ordering flowers online. Remember, the care of an orchid changes during the colder months so make sure to keep your plant warm and hold back on watering.
  4. Stargazing Lilies: These are some of the most beautiful and radiant flowers when it comes to putting together a bold group of flowers. Keep in mind that these types of flowers come with a strong and lovely fragrance. They are a hybrid of the of lilies that our readers are probably most familiar with. They often come in white and pink which we think is just fine when it comes to celebrating the holiday on Saturday.
  5. Peonies: Now we’ve talked about peonies on our blog before because we absolutely love them. The great news is they go so well with the colors of Valentine’s Day because they are most often found in white, pink or red. The red color is more rare but definitely worth pursuing when it comes to celebrating this year. The peonies has a ton of fans as it is traditional floral symbol for China but also the state flower of Indiana since 1957.

We’d also like to offer our readers some last minute words of encouragement and advice when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Our biggest piece of advice for those of you in a couple is make sure to celebrate in some way. I know there are a lot of people out there that think Valentine’s Day is a corny holiday but I think you will find you are more upset on the day about not celebrating than you thought you would be. Also, keep in mind that your partner wants some sort of public display of affection for Valentine’s Day...the easiest way to do this is to send them Valentine’s Day flowers. Especially to their office so that all their co-workers and friends know they are loved. Now for our single readers, make sure you celebrate too! You will be a lot happier if you aren’t sitting around home alone on Saturday night and if you are out with some friends. Find a group of single friends and paint the town red that night!
