Either you looove receiving flowers or you just don't—in any case, we're pretty sure that these unique bouquets will have you ooh-ing and aah-ing. The best part? You can find them right in the metro! Below, five of Preview's favorite florists and why we'll be running to them this Valentine's.
What to look for: Masterfully handmade paper flowers
Now you can stop complaining that flowers just, like, die. Crafted Love specializes in the most astoundingly realistic-looking paper flowers we've ever seen, from single stems to bigger bunches.
What to look for: Personalized message boxes
You can have pretty much anything inscribed onto Fiora's cylindrical flower boxes. Sending one over to a fave girlfriend? We suggest the classic "Get in loser, we're going shopping" just for laughs.
What to look for: Rare blooms flown in from Holland
Heart-shaped wreaths? Beautifully-draped basketed bouquets? Lanai's got you. Be sure to visit their store along Chino Roces in Makati—it's a cafe, a flower shop, and a fashion boutique!
What to look for: Flower boxes that come with macaron drawers
...no, seriously. Petalier knows that if you really like someone, you'd send them both flowers and a little sweet treat. After all, there's no quicker way to the heart than through the stomach! Check out their glass-boxed single rainbow roses, too.
TE AMO FLORISTERIA
What to look for: Tiny gardens inside rotating musical globes
Yes, these arrangements spin and sing. If you're not into doling out song numbers, Te Amo has a signature selection of mini glass-housed blooms for your enchantment, as well as forest-inspired boxed blossoms for simpler tastes.
