Are you looking to court a new Valentine, reignite an old flame, or celebrate unwavering love? The perfect bouquet is waiting for you. The centuries-old tradition of giving flowers continues to flatter, delight and seduce, and thankfully the plot now transcends sex (bloom him already!). But how do you pick the perfect arrangement for your loved one and keep it fresh? We spoke to Anna Enciso, the famous TikTok flower educator and owner of The Blum Bar, to get her expert opinion on flowers. Then we bought the most beautiful arrangements from our favorite delivery services. Our picks range from chic, sexy designs and stunning red roses to plantable picks and buildable Lego bouquets.

Roses are hot

Enciso’s first choice for Valentine’s Day? “Roses! They’re a classic for a reason! Whether you style them in a traditional dozen rose design or add them to a mixed bouquet, they’re always a fan favorite.”

“Pro tip for roses, press the base of the head, if it’s hard it’ll be fresher and last longer,” she continues. When possible, she recommends picking your own blooms from a local florist or opting for local hand delivery. But since that’s out of the question for many of us, here are 12 bouquets from 12 delivery services that are lauded across the country — plus a wilt-free Lego bouquet to grow.

let it last

“Some of my favorite long-lasting flowers are lilies and lisianthus!” says Enciso. “But with the right care, most cut flowers can last 10-14 days. The best thing you can do to keep any floral arrangement fresh is frequent water changes! A good rule of thumb is: if you don’t drink it, your flower won’t want to either!”

Make your own bouquet

Enciso believes that the best bouquets are created when we choose and combine fresh flowers ourselves: “My absolute favorite flower combination is a bouquet of roses, hydrangeas and lilies! Grocery store blooms and come in so many colors you can actually have fun designing them!” For that, you can try Lowe’s, Home Depot, Trader Joe’s, or CostCo.

But we also found another great way to build your own…
