Ditch The Red Roses: A Flower Guide

Valentine’s Day is notorious for lovey-dovey couples, pink and red hearts all around, and of course, bouquets of red roses. I don’t know about you, but while red roses are lovely and traditional, I love seeing a guy get creative with flowers for his girl. Now, I know this probably doesn’t come naturally to, or maybe even cross the minds of, many guys, so I decided to give some ideas of beautiful, unique bouquets for your gals. Love the arrangement, but can’t quite figure out the type of flower? I’ve also included a list of great stems with pictures, so you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for in time for February 14th.

^See those green accent leaves? Those are called eucalyptus flowers, and they make great accents to bold colored flowers!

^Now for Valentines, I’m a big fan of unique, bold colored flowers. But daisies…all day every day. My personal favorite, especially paired with a bolder colored flower!

^Now, although for this post we are stepping away from red roses, pink roses are a fun, less common alternative. Maybe I’m biased, but anything pink is alright by me!
