13 Valentine's Day Bouquets That Will Last Longer (And Occasionally Taste Better) Than Fresh Flowers

There's something special about bouquets that can turn any day around, and make just about every girl undeniably happy. And while of course that includes flower bouquets, I'm also talking about non-floral bouquets, too. Because while just about everyone loves a bountiful bouquet, it's not necessarily one made up of roses and baby's breath. These creative bouquets may not be traditional, but they will make you rethink purchasing the standard dozen of red roses. Do something different this Valentine's Day. Think outside of the box... or in this case, vase.
