What are the right flowers to use when you’re creating a romantic bouquet? Any blossoms, really, since flowers are a universal symbol of love. But, for a super-feminine, soft, flowy, and ethereal kind of romantic bouquet, we suggest the following:
Dahlias and peonies look amazing in a romantic bouquet. Each type of these flowers has several varietals that you can choose from, so pick the ones that call to you most. You have much available in terms of color and design, and all of these blossoms look lovely with greenery like eucalyptus or lamb’s ear. Other flowers you can use in a romantic bouquet include anemone, Gerbera daisies, ranunculus, poppies, lilies, and roses.
Assemble Your Flowers
As you begin assembling your romantic bouquet, you’ll need to have a container ready to place your blooms in. Think about using glass bowls for romantic bouquets. Consider buying bowls that are about six inches tall and round like a ball. Fill your bowls with water and leave about two inches empty. Cut your flowers so that each blossom will be tall enough to just hang over the edge of the bowl. Remove any leaves from stems, if they would be in the water when the flower is placed in the bowl.
Begin arranging your romantic bouquet by placing flowers in the bowl, toward the back of the bowl’s opening. Continue filling the hole, putting rows of flowers in front of each other. You can stuff your flowers in tightly or let them hang a bit loose. Your flowers should, however, be secure in the bowl and not in danger of falling in the water or outside.
Then, you’re done. You’ll have a romantic flower display that’s perfect for an engagement party, bridal shower, or Valentine’s Day dinner. Your bouquet will be simple, but eye-catching, and will have only taken you at half hour or so to assemble.
