You can never go wrong with beautiful blooms and scrumptious sweets for Valentine’s Day but red roses and assorted chocolates are cliché. Here are some chic alternatives to suit every style, just in time for the most romantic day of the year.
For the modern sophisticate try an elegant arrangement of soft peach hued blooms paired with strawberries & champagne truffles. Image / Flowers / Truffles
A trendy girl loves color and likes to mix things up which is why this vibrant and effortlessly arranged bouquet featuring blooms such as ranunculus, anemones, tulips & paper whites is perfect. And for the sweet accompaniment, Momofoku Milk Bar’s infamous Crack Pie dusted with a powdered sugar heart is addictive and irresistible. Image / Flowers / Crack Pie
This Lady Mary bouquet from my favorite London florist takes inspiration from 18th Century England, combining vintage roses and spray roses, with mottled garden hydrangea, snowberries and ammi. Pair it together with classic macarons from Ladurée to create an ultra-feminine and swoon-worthy combo. Image / Flowers / Macarons
Red roses are ubiquitous for Valentine’s Day but I think red tulips are a far more interesting choice. Available all year round and with an graceful and sculptural feel, these blooms are perfect for the classic kind of girl who lives in her striped shirts, ballet flats and timeless trench. She’ll also love these rich, dark chocolate aphrodisiac brownies from the insanely delicious Mah Ze Dahr Bakery which makes for a killer V-Day combo. Image / Flowers / Brownies
