Finally Red Rose by Rosaprima

This delightful artificial bouquet is perfect for Galentines and Valentines alike. The faux florals will last forever just like your love, right? These mix peony stems are available by the bunch or by the box of 12. You can send so they can arrange themselves, or order enough ahead of time that you can make yourself.
In 13 Valentine's Day Crafts That Incorporate Flowers Emily Goldman writes, "On February 14, only one flower will do. It's not that a big bouquet isn't sublime, but a single genus best conveys a message of love: the rose, preferably in lush tones of red and pink. Although long stems crowd every florist's cooler, any romantic knows that beautiful blossoms are the heart of the matter—especially when their stems are cut short and they're gathered into tiny vases or glasses arranged in the unmistakable shape of affection."
Constructions of Natural Materials
Use these creative options as inspiration for your own creations. Thursd writes in Throwback at V-day Inspiration from World Famous Designers that "Tuba loves creating handmade constructions out of natural materials. So she has created two bouquet alternatives on a heart-shaped construction made out of salix branches. One is a classic for Valentine's Day with red roses, red tulips, red hypericum, etc and the other one is more romantic with peonies, spray roses, hedera branches, etc. Flowers are always a good reason to make a beloved one smile..."
DIY Fresh & Artificial Floral Mix
Our crew here at Colonial House of Flowers teamed up with stylist, Tristan Needham, and Pottery Barn to come up with a refreshing take on arranging flowers for true loves, whether it’s romantic roses effortlessly grouped in a statement container, a mix of gathered blooms that can be left on a table, or a small jar to place on a night stand, they’re so easy that you can give them to everyone this Valentine’s Day, even yourself!
These delicate, exotic flowers are a beautiful gift and, unlike a typical bouquet, real orchids can last for years, blooming each spring (artificial ones bloom all year long) as a special reminder of your relationship.
