Say Happy Valentine’s Day with Helen Olivia

Valentine’s (and Galentine’s!) Day is just around the corner, and we’re counting down some of our favorite floral gifts to celebrate.


Killer Flowers

No surprises here – the number one way to celebrate the most romantic day of the year is with really beautiful flowers. While we offer classic roses, we always encourage clients to custom tailor arrangements to their special someone. For the lady who loves red lipstick- red parrot tulips, hot pink sweet pea, and fuchsia vanda orchids. For the woman who appreciates all things neutral – an arrangement of white lilac, white peony, and green hellebore.





Galentine’s Day

Traditionally celebrated the day prior to Valentine’s Day, it’s all about celebrating the special friendships in your life. It’s the perfect occasion to surprise your best gals at the office or at home with fresh flowers and makes the week fun for everyone – even those who don’t have a love interest. There’s nothing better than a surprise delivery of flowers, right?




Men Deserve a Little Love Too

Remember, Valentine’s gifting isn’t just about women! We love delivering modern succulent gardens and love ferns (a little How To Loose A Guy in 10 Days humor!) to husbands and boyfriends all over the D.C. area.



Love in Bloom

Looking for a lasting Valentine’s gift? We’re all about the orchid plants and have gorgeous options from simple to lavish. It’s a chic option, and one that’ll be around long after the holiday is over.



Curated Gift Boxes

A little bit of everything we love for the holiday – flowers, a candle, and our favorite bath products.
