Being a single mom on Valentine’s Day just means I focus my love on my four kids, but that doesn’t mean I’m not just a little bit jealous of all the Valentine’s Day flowers being exchanged between couples. That’s why I had to chuckle when I discovered the Anti Valentine’s Day bouquets at Flower Muse. They make the perfect, slightly snarky, and very fun gift for your own single self or someone else in your life who needs some platonic love on Valentine’s Day this year.
The Anti Valentine’s Day bouquets aren’t gag gifts–far from it, actually, considering the fresh farm-to-door process for each bouquet.. The #Antivalentine bouquet of “black” tulips at top (actually a deep purple) is lovely. Or check out the the black hydrangeas (called Valentine Schmalentine) which have been sprayed with vegetable-based dye to make them look, um, angrier and more bitter. Ha.
For something a little cheerier, I like the February 14th is Just Another Day bouquet, which skips the traditional pink and red roses for a gorgeous orange that will brighten your space. And if you do love red and pink roses? Well, have at it with the Sisters before Misters Anti-Valentine’s Day bouquet.
The Flower Muse bouquets are definitely pricier than what you’d get from your supermarket or the big online flower websites, but with free shipping and the knowledge that they’re super freshly cut just for you, I’m all for it. And yes, I realize that it’s clever marketing. But isn’t that in keeping with the spirit of the entire Valentine’s Day holiday anyway?
