Let me tell you a Valentine's Day story. When I was in high school, I never had a boyfriend on February 14th. Sure I dated a few dudes now and then, but the timing just never worked out. But the one thing I always wanted was to have flowers delivered to my school, so that at the end of the day I'd hear my name announced over the intercom, along with all the other girls with boyfriends. Totally ridiculous, I know, and looking back I can see that all those arrangements and gifts were downright cheesy (and let's face it, just kind of ugly). Generic roses and babies breath? No thanks (sorry guys, I'm a flower snob to the max).
Here's what I say, why do you need someone to send you flowers on Valentine's Day? Sure it's the thought that counts, but why not treat-yo-self, in style I might add? This DIY Modern Valentine's Day Arrangement using grocery store blooms sticks to the classic pink and red color palette, but with fun funky textures, and combinations to really wow. Plus with the techniques in this post you can create thoughtful gifts for your mom, sisters, and friends.
