DIY Valentine's Day Florals

Posted: Updated:

If you're looking to get flowers for your Valentine…wait! You can save yourself a ton of money by doing it yourself. Sunny Ravanbach the founder of White Lilac is here to show us how.

Everyone loves receiving flowers - especially for a special occasion!

Skip the overpriced arrangements and overplayed red roses and make your own arrangement to gift or display this Valentine's Day.

Sunny is going to share with you a few pro tips that we use at White Lilac to create custom floral displays for clients like Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari, and Chopard.

The Red Hot Classic

  • Timeless arrangement with a modern twist
  • The bouquet: a paveed arrangement of deep red roses - all florists will be stocking red roses, you can find them anywhere this time of year
  • Pro tip: Pave arrangement will make roses last longer!
  • The vase: a simple glass vase wrapped in French velvet
  • Pro tip: Use spray adhesive to wrap strips of fabric around vase; add a jeweled brooch for classic flair


The Hopeless Romantic

  • Ideal for the vintage-loving bohemian gal
  • The bouquet: garden roses and peonies in shades of blush
  • Pro tip: Peonies are in season, and much more affordable than roses at this time of year
  • The vase: a mercury footed bowl
  • Pro tip: I love collecting vases from local flea markets and vintage stores! You can repurpose them year-round


The Modernist

  • My personal style - simple and elegant
  • The twist: deconstruct the traditional bouquet, using single orchid blooms placed into repurposed wine bottles of varying heights
  • Pro tip: use metallic spray paint to cover old wine bottles and use as vases
  • The presentation: cluster the bottles onto a tray - you can find these at any Target or craft store
  • Pro tip: place votive candles alongside the arrangement to illuminate the metallic bottles

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
