valentine’s day bouquet recipes

The Valentine’s Day Extravaganza continues with two adorable DIY bouquet recipes from Shelby at The Day’s Design and Heather of Heather Cisler Photography.

These two wonderful creatives ended up having to shoot this in the middle of a snowstorm. That’s crazy but I love it!

From Shelby of The Day’s Design – “With Valentine’s Day being right around the corner, flower shops, grocery stores, and even gas stations (for that really last-minute man in your life) are being flooded with your typical Valentine’s blooms. Red roses, pink roses, and perhaps a couple of other lovely shades all perfectly molded together – wrapped in plastic, or if you’re lucky a simple glass vase with a couple springs of fern thrown into the mix.

These are all flowers that are readily available and can be made glamorous if just arranged and displayed correctly. So, if your man stops at Speedway on his way home from work Friday night, don’t lose heart… you can still have a beautiful arrangement of flowers!”

“And I couldn’t resist putting together a little floral headpiece with some of the leftover blooms, which is a certain way to make any girl feel like a princess! Then we added some glitter and sweet treats, capturing it all in one of Michigan’s famous snow storms this winter.”
