While roses are the traditional flower to give your loved one on your anniversary, the trends are changing as we see quirky and off-beat weddings bucking tradition. Roses are always a classic and beautiful way to honor a special day, but perhaps your significant other has unique taste and a style that is all their own. We love the idea of sending a floral arrangement with alternatives to roses because it shows that a lot of time and thought went into choosing the perfect flowers. Here are some of our favorite alternative anniversary bouquets:
A lavender plant is a beautiful way to honor your love on your anniversary day, especially if your significant other loves to garden. They can either keep this gorgeous plant in the decorative purple planter in which it arrives, or replant it in their yard. This is an especially great option for those who love the color purple, or love aromatherapy. Lavender is known for its relaxing scent, and would be a great addition if you are also gifting your love with a relaxing spa day.
We are head over heels for this simply stunning calla lily arrangement. Available with six, eight or ten stems of calla lilies, the flowers come elegantly arranged among beautiful green palms. This is a perfect bouquet for someone who loves the exotic elegance of the likes of St. Tropez or Cabo San Lucas. This is also a great addition to an anniversary that will include a tropical vacation.
A hydrangea arrangement is a beautiful option for an anniversary. Hydrangeas are classic and elegant, and making a huge comeback with the surge in interest in vintage looks. They offer a stunning visual appeal to whatever space they adorn. Whether it is a table centerpiece, or on your love’s nightstand, they are sure to add an element of luminous festivity.
The key to making anniversary flower bouquets that feature rose alternatives is to keep them upscale and elegant, so as to ensure that it doesn’t look like you simply got a cheap bouquet of mixed flowers to skimp out on a special day. To do this, you simply need to pick an arrangement that fits any theme you may have to your anniversary, or pick an arrangement with one type of flower for uniformity. With those rules in mind, you are sure to find something beautiful that will make your significant other smile!
