Whether shopping online or at your local florist, you will notice that some flowers are always in stock or in high demand. Around Valentine’s Day you will notice that many people are on the hunt for red roses, for example.
Roses can be displayed all on their own or along with other flowers. Some popular flowers to pair with roses include lilies, chrysanthemums, carnations, and various kinds of daisies. You can use a single colour or several colours to create a stunning bunch.
Orchids are another popular flower and, while they do last the longest of all cut flowers, they are often sent as potted plants instead. Potted orchids are stunning and will offer the recipient even more beauty and joy than a cut stem.
Gladiolus flowers are grand in every sense. Not only are they bright and beautiful, but they are also tall and they are perfect for adding height to any vertical arrangement. You can be sure that just a few of these stems will transform any bouquet!
Gerbera daisies are available in so many different colours and they are really affordable too. They can be displayed on their own or paired with other flowers like freesia, roses, and even lilies. Like roses, you can mix and match your colours when decorating with gerberas or you can stick to a single colour if you pefer.
When sending a message of congratulations, nothing is better than a bunch of sunflowers! These flowers are often bundled together on their own without any other flowers or foliage. Their size and beauty is more than enough to make them stunning without any mass or fillers.
As for fillers, baby’s breath is easily the most popular since it can be used in just about any bouquet. That said, your florist will also have other fresh and artificial fillers that can make any bouquet sparkle! In some cases, it’s these fillers that really help create the theme and colour scheme of the arrangement. So, it’s worth taking the time to consider your options carefully.
