Creating the perfect pink bouquet

Pink is one of the most popular colours when it comes to fresh flowers. Whether displayed all on their own or added to a mixed flower arrangement, pink flowers have a way of bringing any bouquet to life. The best part of all is that there are so many pink blooms out there! From hydrangeas to roses and everything in between, pink is always in season!

One trick when creating a pink bouquet is to decide whether you wish to use one type of flower or several types of pink flowers. Either way, you can be sure that you will have a fine display once you’re done arranging each stem.

Examples of popular pink flowers include:

  • Ranunculus
  • Peonies
  • Sweet peas
  • Tulips
  • Roses
  • Orchids
  • Anemones
  • Pink jasmine
  • Pink calla lilies
  • Hydrangeas
  • Carnations
  • Flowers that are in the daisy family

Some of these flowers look lovely when arranged in a cluster while others make wonderful bud arrangements. Just imagine a rich bunch of hydrangeas or pink roses. Orchids look wonderful in bud arrangements and in oriental arrangements that take on a minimalist design.

If you want to make a mixed bouquet of pink flowers, it’s a good idea to determine which ones have the darkest shade and which ones are available in paler shades. The darker shades of pink should make up the centre of the arrangement with the slightly paler pinks around the central flowers. Work your way out to the edge but take care not to create definite lines. Since you are using different types of flowers, their petals may overlap here and there. This is perfectly fine, in fact it’s fantastic since it gives your arrangement a far more natural appearance.

Should you wish to arrange pink roses in different colours, you can mix them up or use the spiraling method described above. Remember to choose the right vase too! The best option when it comes to most flower arrangements is to go with a neutral vase. Consider a plain white or clear glass vase for example. You can spruce up a glass vase by adding some colourful vase filler material like plastic or glass gems. Whenever adding vase fillers or accessories to your bouquet, make sure that you do so with the colour scheme in mind.
