Preserved florals look real but last much longer, so their exceptional perceived value makes them great gifts for Valentine’s Day.
For Valentine’s Day, most floral departments try to have a variety of arrangements on hand. This offering, composed of fresh-looking preserved botanicals, is for those seeking the value of longevity without sacrificing the natural beauty of fresh blossoms. It features one dozen roses—four each of three varieties—in a rustic wooden tote along with preserved maidenhair fern and Stoebe, the diminutive blossoms of which add a textural collar around the roses. A charming “shoestring” bow with jaunty chevron-cut streamers completes the country-inspired composition.
