Flowers to decorate your Valentine’s Day party

Valentine’s Day is not only a day on which couples get to spoil each other with romantic gifts. It’s also the perfect reason to host a memorable party. After the buzz of the festive season, many people are looking for another great reason to get together with friends, family, and loved ones again. Valentine’s Day parties are also popular for singles. These parties are great for all those who are feeling a bit lonely on this day and it also gives everyone the chance to mingle and maybe meet somebody new. If you are playing host and you want to make sure that everything looks absolutely perfect, it’s important to pay close attention to the d├ęcor. The food, drinks, and music you choose will depend on personal preferences as well as any dietary needs of your guests. As for the decorations, you will find that the right lighting and fresh flowers will make all the difference.

The type of flower arrangements you choose will depend on the kind of event you are hosting. If you are planning on setting up one or more tables, then you will need to decorate each table appropriately. For example, dining tables should not be decorated with huge bouquets or you will restrict contact between guests. A buffet table can also be decorated with flowers but they should only be those of the non-toxic variety. You don’t want any potentially toxic plants or flowers too close to your food.

As for colours, red and white are popular for this occasion but pink can also be used for some variation. Red roses are without a doubt the most popular Valentine’s Day flowers but they are not your only option. If you need to order several bouquets and red roses are not your only option. If you like, you can create a mixed bouquet that includes a few red roses as well as other red, white, and even some pink flowers. Alternatively, you could substitute all red roses with another red flower like carnations.

Gerbera daisies are also available in various colours, including a very striking shade of red. They are perfect for medium and small flower arrangements and they look great on their own or along with other blooms.

Don’t forget the important role of foliage in your romantic flower displays. Adding just the right amount of greenery to a bouquet helps the flowers stand out even more and it gives your bouquets a fuller appearance. If you choose flowers arranged in floral foam, then greenery can be used to conceal the foam and the plastic container below. The one important rule to remember is that your foliage should never overcrowd the bouquet. You always want your flowers to outnumber the amount of foliage.

If due to allergies or any other reason you aren’t too keen on fresh flowers, you can also ask your florist about silk flowers. Some people might not like the idea of artificial flowers. However, it’s important to note that professional florists stock high-quality artificial flowers and they are not the same as those you find at your local craft and hobby shop.

Don’t forget to add some balloons, perhaps a few candles, and even fairy lights. It’s not just about choosing the right flowers and the right colours, it’s also important to make sure that you set the mood with the right lighting. With all of these three factors addressed, your Valentine’s Day party will be a hit!
