Easily the most fail-safe Valentine’s Day gift, flowers have come a long way from the dozen red roses cliché. From the Paris-inspired to the super luxe, floral arrangements are fresher than ever (both literally and figuratively). Here, eight local florists in Philly, the Main Line and Bucks County that are serving up flora worth fussing over.

Touted for their Martha Stewart-worthy arrangements, the floral design company offers two super-easy Valentine’s Day bouquet options. However, asking owner Sullivan Owen to let her creative juices flow is also encouraged (just check out her Instagram).
