While flowers are an obvious gift to give for Valentine's Day, they are also always a people pleaser. There are very few people in the world who don't like flowers (and if you don't like them, I want to know who you are!). Whether you're gifting your mom, your teacher, your co-workers, or your besties, here are some Mini Valentine's Brooch bouquets that are super easy to put together...

All you'll need are your favorite blooms, some pins (we used both new and vintage), and strips of leftover fabric to tie the bouquets. Simply assemble your mini bouquet with blooms of your choice, then wrap the stems and tie with a strip of fabric. Pin your brooch to the fabric for a decorative accent that your gal pal can also wear later on her collar and think of you every time she does!

And, don't forget to add non-floral plants like kumquats off your tree or basil for an extra dose of color, texture, and fragrance. We topped this one with a vintage brooch I've had for years!

Or use a modern pin like this one from Ban.do for your nearest and dearest. You can make the bouquets up to one day before you're planning to give them out. If you make them in advance, make sure to keep each bouquet in cool water in the fridge and then tie them and pin them right before giving them out!
