A Floral-Filled Valentines Day with Lady Larissa
Thursday, February 1st, 2018 | By Emily Coates
How are you celebrating Valentines Day? As flower-lovers, we’re big fans of any holiday that involves florals (hell, if it was up to us, we’d have Valentines Day every month!).
When Lady Larissa got in touch to share the three ways she’s celebrating Valentines Day, we knew we were in for a treat!
If you haven’t noticed, this lovely lady is high on our list of our go-to florists. We’re forever finding ourselves lusting over her rambling, free-spirited style. You won’t find any dated, overdone styling in her repertoire, but instead, artful arrangements lovingly crafted by a floral artist who truly pushes the boundaries of her art form.
We’re always down for filling our lives with florals, so today we’re sharing three ways you can fill your Valentines Day with pretty petals by Lady Larissa.
1. Go to Her Blooms + Beers Workshop
Beers and blooms; totally dreamy, right? (Name a more iconic duo… we’ll wait.)
Why not round up your lover or girl gang for a flower workshop? You’ll learn how to put together your own romantic garden bouquet (who needs a man to buy you one anyway?).
For those in Canberra, Lady Larissa is teaming up with the awesome humans of Capital Brewing Co to host a ‘LOVE IS LOVE’ workshop at their Canberra-based brewery on Tuesday 13 Feb. All the colours of love will be celebrated with vibrant floral varieties – think pastel English blooms and wild Australian natives.

2. Buy an insanely beautiful Bouquet
This year, Larissa has designed two beautiful bunches for those looking for a V-Day bouquet. They go by the name of ‘Crystal’ – and aren’t they gorgeous?
Larissa says, “Amethyst and Rose Quartz are the main sources of inspiration behind our lovers’ bouquet, ‘Crystal.’ It’s designed for you to treat your Valentine to a beautiful and bespoke, rambling and romantic garden bouquet.”
“All Crystal bouquets will include gorgeous and rare rose varieties, as well as our current seasonal favourites and garden foliage in dreamy pretty pastels with deep and dark tones. Think beautiful, soft and overgrown English garden meets wild and free-spirited Australian natives.”

3. Blooms on a boat
What’s more romantic than a bouquet of blooms? …a bouquet of blooms on a boat!
This year, Larissa is collaborating with GoBoat to create the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience, allowing you to spoil your lover with an exclusive, romantic evening on the water.
The package includes two hours on one of Canberra’s own European GoBoats, a sweet grazing platter of chocolate-dipped strawberries, nuts, fruit and other goodies from local sensation Graze Expectations, and a bouquet of beauties crafted by Lady Larissa.
Spots are selling quickly, so best be quick!
