Flowers have been a part of Valentine’s Day longer than anyone can remember, specifically roses. Roses are iconic, they are the essence of romance and passion, but that doesn’t make them the only flower you can use for a romantic gesture. While we love roses, they can start to feel a tad overdone on V-Day, especially when everyone in your office has a fresh bouquet of red roses plopped on their desk, and your Instagram feed is an endless scroll of red, white and pink petals. So why not consider an alternative, but just as romantic, flower this Valentine’s Day? Set yourself apart from the rest and surprise your loved ones with a bouquet that will stand out in a sea of red roses this Valentine’s Day! Here are a few of our favorite Valentine’s Day flower alternatives!
