If there’s one day out of the year that you have a right to gorgeous flowers, it’s Valentine’s Day! With romantic and indulgent bouquets on our mind, there was no one better to turn to for inspiration than Los Angeles florist Stephanie Schur, of Botany Flowers. Stephanie is known for her vibrant and elegant bouquets, which often involve simple vessels overflowing with unique blooms, an aesthetic that sounds just right for celebrating a day of love and friendship! The lush arrangement Stephanie shared with us today is sure to inspire some true floral envy, and hopefully a few homemade bouquets!
“I love to find a way to give floral arrangements extra meaning. In this case, we took an old beautiful book of love poems, opened the book a quarter of the way and cut out the center with an exacto knife. Then we lined the inside and used florist foam and arranged the flowers as if they are growing out of the book.” Here, Stephanie tucked some earthy green moss into the base of the arrangement, then stuffed it full of garden roses, anemones, ranunculus, ferns, hyacinth, and lavender.
