Five Flowerless Bouquets Your Valentine Will Love
Nothing says “I love you” like flowers, and on Valentine’s Day the roads are filled with couriers delivering bouquets of red roses.
But are there alternatives to saying it with flowers? What if your love language was food? Or the special person in your life suffers from hay fever?
If you want to do something different this year, we’ve put together an alternative Valentine’s Day bouquet guide. These bouquets are all about romance, but (almost) no flowers were harmed in the making. And they are sure to leave a great taste in your Valentine’s mouth.
The “flowers” are made of streaky bacon with a magnolia leaf added as greenery. They are wrapped in natural sinamay fiber and finished with brown butcher paper and twine.
We can smell the cooking now!
The bouquet pictured above is romantically known as the Underwater World Bouquet. So ethereal – and packed with goodness in the form of broccoli, kale, fancy salad and radishes.
Each bouquet is wrapped in parchment paper and held together with biodegradable tape and bamboo skewers. There are also fruit options.
Krispy Kreme, which arrived in New Zealand last year to the delight of donut lovers, has created special heart-shaped donuts for Valentine’s Day. Not quite bouquets but sure to please.
Spare the flowers, we say. Be creative – and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
