Flower Guide

Kiana of Tulipina, a boutique floral design studio in San Francisco, is sharing how to make floral arrangements just in time for Valentine’s Day. Using a variety of pink blooms and textures, Kiana incorporated unique vases and vintage containers she already owned for an eclectic mismatched table look. We love the flower arrangement with dates, such a perfectly suggestive choice for Valentine’s Day. Thank you Angie Cao for the gorgeous images!

What you will need:
4 mix and match eclectic vases and vintage containers
One bunch pink peonies
One bunch pink ranunculus
One bunch pink hellebore
One bunch of dates
One bunch pink hurricane lilies
One bunch vintage colored roses
2-3 stems dark pink amaryllis
2 bunches of drumstick allium
One bunch dusty miller
One set of floral shears


From Kiana of Tulipina: Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for floral design and a great opportunity to make as many beautiful things as possible.

In this project I thought it would be fun to take some of my favorite vases and fill them with complementary flowers and use them as a clustered centerpiece for a Valentine’s Day table setting – maybe brunch or dinner. If you invite friends, you can send them home with one of these designs.

I love owls, and here they become the theme. I found the cutest owl plates on sale at Sur La Table after the holidays, and bought some matching owl vases from Anthropologie knowing that they would be the perfect vessel for some amazing little arrangements!

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.
