Simple Valentine's Day Centerpiece with Pink Roses and White Tulips

I may have a slight obsession with fresh flowers. They make everything better and just put you in a good mood. So when ProFlowers asked if I wanted to participate in their Valentine’s Day Centerpiece Challenge, I couldn’t resist.

I got to pick my choice of floral arrangements to create my own centerpiece design and yes I was like a little kid in a candy shop. I’m already really bad at making decisions, and when there are so many beautiful flowers to choose from, it makes it ten times harder.

I ended up going with Pink Pearl Roses and White Tulips.

I’m not a big fan of red roses, I mean I won’t throw them away if they’re given to me, but I prefer a more unique combination of flowers. Peonies are my absolute fav, but those weren’t available. I thought for a while about what I wanted to put my flowers in and kept being drawn to my new vase that I got for $2.50 from Ross. Deal of the century.

Ok I lied, it’s not a vase, it’s a candle. But the candle only takes up like 1/4 of it. Probably why it was on sale for $2.50. So I bought some floral styrofoam and put that over top of the candle and stuck the stems in.

I started with the roses around the outside, and then filled the middle with tulips.

Aren’t you in a better mood just looking at these gorgeous flowers?!

My new piggy wanted to photobomb the shoot 😉

Since I had a lot of flowers left over, I played around with them some more.

Either of these arrangements would brighten up any Valentine’s Day table and I know they’ve been putting a smile on my face every time I look at them 🙂

Do you guys have any fun plans for Vtines Day? We’re not too big into the day, but enjoy celebrating our love and spending time together. We might go to a couple nearby wineries and then settle in to watch the Syracuse – Duke basketball game. Exciting I know 🙂 ‘Cuse better get their act together and pull out a W.

Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday 🙂

    That vase/candle is AMAZING! What a steal! And I actually seriously love the flowers in the little milk bottles – they really shine there! I’m definitely a peony (or ranunculus!) fan before roses, but getting flowers is always nice, no matter what kind they are!

    What a neat way to upcycle a candle and use it for a vase. I love the gold too. There is nothing like finding a great deal on clearance. I hate to say this but I’ll be cheering for Duke. Lol! My husband is a huge fan. Have a wonderful Valentine’s weekend and thank you for sharing at Motivational Monday Link Party! Hope to see you again Sunday night.

    Gorgeous flowers!! And I agree with you…I find red roses to be kinda boring. Peonies are one of my faves too, but this tulip/rose combo is really pretty!

      Thank Amy! I hate that Peonies are only available for a short time so it’s fun to find new combinations!
