This Valentine’s Day Give Something Other Than Roses

Valentine’s Day is less than 2 weeks away. Obviously, like most florist shops here at Eastern Floral, our single best-selling flower on Valentine’s Day is the red rose. If you have given your beloved red roses every year, think about changing that this year. While tradition has its place in many circumstances, there are rules that suggest crimson roses are the only acceptable flowers to give someone to show your love on Valentine’s Day.

All of us at Eastern Floral want to encourage you to explore alternatives. Since we do not know how you feel about going against tradition, we are going to help you. We’ve compiled some ideas to present here, hoping that these suggestions will inspire you to come up with some Valentine’s Day flower and gift ideas that are uniquely your own.

Classic Elegance

We think calla lilies are the epitome of elegance. We think our Simply Chic bouquet is ideal for anyone wanting a gorgeous arrangement that oozes romance with its huge wow factor. We nestle the most beautiful calla lilies we can find on a bed inside a bed of curly willow branches. Those branches are clearly visible in the Eco-friendly recycled round glass vase we use. We top the arrangement off with flax leaves. This unusual flower arrangement is sure to surprise and delight the one you love, and it is definitely not something they would expect to receive on Valentine’s Day.

A Local Treat

We find it hard to believe there are people who don’t love flowers as much as we do, but for that beer lover in your life, we’ve got a special treat that’s sure to surprise and delight them. The Beer City Basket gives your recipient a taste of Grand Rapids. The basket includes a Mitten Brewing Company growler and pint, a Mitten Brewing Company key chain, pretzels, mustard, and a $15 Mitten Brewing Company gift certificate.

Chase Away the Winter Cold

Most Grand Rapids residents are tiring of the winter cold and snow. No amount of dreaming will chase this wretched weather away, but vibrant plants can help people think about other things. We turned the traditional concept of a terrarium upside down, and created an entirely new concept – using succulents. Our large Eco-friendly recycled bowl is the starting point for this Xeriscape-inspired terrarium. We nestled different succulents in the bowl and neatly layered gravel around the plants. Anyone can grow these care-free plants that hardly require any upkeep.
