When making a Valentine’s flower bouquet the first thing you need to do is choose your flowers. Roses, carnations, lilies, tulips, and freesia are the most popular, fragrant Valentine’s flower choices. The LA Flower District California Flower Mall in Downtown Los Angeles is a great place to find a wide assortment of fresh from the farm flowers at wholesale and discount prices.
Choose your colors for your Valentine’s floral bouquet. Popular colors for Valentine’s bouquets are red, white, and pink. Purple, pink and yellow are a vibrant change of pace from traditional red hues – especially for Mom’s and Sisters. You can make a beautiful bouquet with a combination of all these colors, or a choice of just two of the colors. You can also make the decision once you’ve seen the selection of thousands of different discount fresh flowers from all over the world that the LA Flower District California Flower Mall has to offer.

Choose vases and ribbon for your flower bouquet. Dollar Tree stores have a great selection of ribbon, vases and supplies for $1 each. A clear glass vase and satin like ribbon look elegant on a Valentine’s bouquet. Or keep it simple, skip the vase and deliver fresh cut flowers with a simple ribbon on it.
Prepare your flowers for your Valentine’s bouquet. Cut one inch off each flower stem. Make sure to cut at a 45 degree angle. If you have chosen roses, the stems need to be cut under water. Hold each rose stem under cold running water, and then cut. This helps the rose from getting air bubbles and droopy heads. If you a planning to put roses or any flower in a vase, strip the greenery from the lower stem 2 -3 inches below the blossom to make the flowers last longer in water. Add green fern leaves if you want to expand and enhance the fullness of a flower bouquet in a vase.
Arrange the flowers for your Valentine’s bouquet. Think of a triangle when you are putting your Valentine’s bouquet together in a vase or ribbon tied bundle. The tallest flower goes in the middle. Make sure it is full, and colors are evenly distributed throughout your bouquet. Look at these step by step floral arrangements for complete instructions. Make sure your bouquet looks full and proportional in the vase.
