Best of: Valentine’s Day Flower Arrangements

I always get excited for February because it means I can indulge in pink, red and love-themed flower arrangements. Few things make me happier than sending or making flower arrangements for my friends, so this time of year my brain starts working overtime to think of creative ways to celebrate the people who mean so much to me. Whether it’s a romantic gift or just something to say, “Hey, thanks for being so great” (my favorite kind), I wanted to kick off the first day of February with a little roundup of the best Valentine’s Day-friendly flower arrangements we’ve featured on the site. We have a slew of new ones (and V-Day DIY projects) coming up over the next week or two, but I wanted to share these in case anyone’s sending out gifts a little early. Also, if you’re in the mood for flowers inspired by romantic love, check out the arrangements MK created for our column Wild Love (inspired by famous couples). xo, grace

  1. They all look so beautiful!
    I am specially loving the 2nd pic.. Gorgeous!

  2. Sarah says:

    That ranunculus/dogwood/lilies of the valley arrangement makes my little heart go pitter patter! If I had gone with a spring wedding, that’s exactly what I would have chosen for florals, just gorgeous!

  3. I am inspired by the flower arrangement in the Chinese take out container. They would look lovely as the center piece at a casual dinner party. Also great party favors.

  4. Susan says:

    February 1st finds me so hungry for the scent of fresh flowers.

  5. Dana Caffrey says:

    Wow, very beautiful flower arrangements! Thanks for this wonderful ideas. I will definitely try one of this for the forthcoming Valentine’s Day!

    1. I do Love the “Love” cups. I am also a designer and would like to know where I may be able to find similar designed cups.
