Romantic bouquet arranging tips

So many people enjoy getting creative for occasions like Valentine’s Day. If you have never tried to create your own romantic bouquet, you will be surprised just how easy and fun it can be! All you need to do is make sure that you have a few basic supplies and a design in mind.

Focal flowers

Your focal flowers are those that will grab most of the attention in your romantic bouquet. The best focal blooms include roses and lilies. You can choose red or pink focal flowers depending on the colour scheme of your arrangement. Remember, red might be the top choice for romance but there are many other options too. If you are not sure about red, you can always opt for pink or even mixed arrangements that include three or more colours.

Mass and filler flowers

Mass flowers will give your romantic bouquet that extra fullness while filler flowers complete any areas that appear to have gaps in between. Some arrangements only have focal flowers and filler flowers. One popular example of this is the popular pairing of red roses and baby’s breath. They contrast one another in texture, size and colour.


Finally, you need to consider adding foliage to the arrangement. Again, like mass flowers, this is optional. If your bouquet looks great with flowers only, there is no rule stating that you need to include leaves. Remember, flower stems also have leaves attached which means that you could allow them to take up the role of foliage in your bouquet.


Flower picks with hearts, cupids or even romantic messages will certainly make for the perfect finishing touch to any romantic bouquet! You could even print out a picture of you and your Valentine and attaching to a flower pick to add to the arrangement. There are so many amazing ideas that it’s easy to personalise any romantic bouquet.

Vase options

Depending on your flower arranging skills, you might feel more comfortable using floral foam as opposed to a vase. This is because foam holds each stem in place and this can make it easier to create a balanced and defined look. For vase arrangements, you should cross the stems over one another for stability and to prevent them from moving from side to side as you create the design.

Now that you know all of the basics, it’s time to consider what type of romantic bouquet you intend on creating for your Valentine! Will you choose ruby red blooms? Or perhaps something more subtle like a pink and white bouquet. Consider all of the things your Valentine loves and create a design that reflects their personality and preferences.
