In my e-book, Cozy White Cottage Seasons I share 100 cozy tricks to take you thru every season and Tip 99 is devoted to Valentine’s Day. I clarify that Valentine’s Day is a vacation that I are likely to take a minimalist decor strategy to. One factor I do stay up for yearly is spending the loving vacation with Cope and Jose and naturally…beautiful Valentine’s Day flowers. For some making a customized floral association ends at filling a vase with water and putting the flowers inside. Nevertheless, at the moment I wish to share some cozy (simple) recommendations on the way to make your Valentine’s Day Flowers uniquely your personal. I wish to emphasize that I’m no knowledgeable within the floral division. I’m simply sharing what I do and why I like it!

Prep Your Flowers
Contemplate the well being of your flowers so that you could get probably the most out of their life. Flowers want meals, water, and a clear surroundings. If the flowers that you just obtain for valentine’s day are lacking the little meals packet, you may make your personal flower meals. A fundamental recipe that I wish to observe is 1 qt. of water, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1/2 tablespoon of bleach.
You’re additionally going to wish to lower the ends of your flower stems and an inch or so to permit them to open up and tackle water. Be sure you do that each couple of days to allow them to proceed to get vitamins. With this, you’ll want to change out your water as nicely and possibly add a little bit sugar and bleach to proceed the longevity.
Your floral preparations ought to have all of their decrease leaves eliminated already, however in case they don’t, just remember to transfer them to stop them from rising mould within the water.
I take pleasure in retaining a folder saved on Pinterest of social media of floral preparations that I take pleasure in referring again to for inspiration once I organize my Valentine’s Day floral preparations. Saving photographs for inspiration to refer again to all the time helps spark my creativity.
Give your floral association a customized look
Each time I get an association of flowers, I by no means take it at face worth. The second that I get the association dwelling, I’m prepping the flowers to get them prepared for show. I’m additionally interested by how I need them to look of their vase.

Think about using a singular vase to show your floral association. Whereas I wish to go the vintage route, take into account the form, measurement, materials, and shade of the vase that you just select.
Use a Template
I actually take pleasure in utilizing a flower frog to maintain all of my florals in place. Whereas flower frogs are sometimes manufactured from pottery or glass, you may as well create one with objects round the home! If you happen to don’t have a flower frog, seize some tape (clear ideally) to nice a grid throughout your vase. This shall be simpler on creating the association and the distinctive form that you really want
