Gift Idea: From You Flowers for Christmas & Valentines

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift idea or are wanting a classic gift for other holidays such as Valentine's Day, consider a floral bouquet!

We received the From You Flowers' "Christmas Cheer" bouquet just before Christmas and really enjoyed having it brighten our home. You can see the Christmas flowers "display" bouquet here is filled with roses, carnations, fir greens, and small holiday ornaments. Our bouquet also had holly leaves in it!

One of my favorite aspects of the bouquets from From You Flowers is that they are arranged and delivered by local florists. I was so pleased to see the card from our local florist with these flowers, and happy to support local small businesses.

The bouquet that we received was beautifully arranged and was a unique addition to our home at Christmastime. I loved having the roses and carnations as another living thing in our home, instead of only having evergreen. It was a surprising and fun twist by keeping the Christmas colors in the flowers, but delivering the traditional Christmas colors through a new medium of cut arranged flowers.

On our bouquet we had sparkly light green balls that my kids found fascinating. These ornaments fit in perfectly with the flowers and made it clear that this was a Christmas arrangement to celebrate the season. The kids were so excited to have flowers in our home and were always asking to smell the roses. I liked to keep the Christmas flowers up on our entertainment center in the living room so that they would get viewed the most. I also brought them into the kitchen at dinner time to make a festive centerpiece.

The whole bouquet lasted about a week, when we had to remove the roses. The great thing about this Christmas floral arrangement is that it still looked wonderful without the roses, and then a few days later without the carnations when they dried up. In the end, we had a bouquet made up of ornaments, greens (including evergreens and holly), and the small white filler flowers that still looked lovely. It was great to have the long-living greenery elements that so clearly spoke about Christmas.
