Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? We've put together some ideas from our web archive that should help you pick the perfect bouquet (or mix up a delicious cocktail) for your sweetheart next week.
First, before you order any flowers, you might want to read about The Language of Flowers, a Victorian way of expressing your sentiments through a choice nosegay.
And for more guidance on which flowers for your specific message, check out our slide show about The Language of Flowers.
‘Rosalind’, one of eight David Austin rose varieties available as a cut flower, has a fruity fragrance and a bluish-pink hue. The bloom is known for its dense, round head, similar to that of a peony. Its romance peaks as it starts to fade.
We also have a related article all about these profusely petaled blooms.
Peonies are hard to get this time of year in most of the United States, but if are able to find some in February, our slide show about how to arrange peonies and garden roses is great for inspiration.
Or, if you want to mix in some fragrant sprigs of herbs with late winter or early spring bulbs, we also have a slide show about how to create centerpieces with herbs and blossoms.
And in addition to flowers, you can always consider mixing a cocktail made with garden ingredients for your beloved—here are four recipes from cocktail mixologists around the country that are sure to be the perfect ending to your Valentine's Day.
