Flowers for a perfect purple bouquet
When you are looking for a bunch of purple flowers for yourself or a loved one, you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of purple blooms available throughout the year. Purple flowers can be displayed on their own or along with other colours like white and pink. You can even pair them with yellow blooms for a stunning contrast.
Some of the best purple focal flowers include roses, alstroemeria, and orchids. While roses and alstroemeria work great in larger quantities or even small clusters, orchids are best displayed on their own with just a few other accents like a touch of foliage and a few filler flowers.
Carnations and lavender are great as mass flowers in a purple arrangement. They look particularly lovely when paired with white focal flowers like roses. The best part of all is that you don’t need a lot of them to make a stunning bouquet.
For fillers, you could use wax flowers, spray chrysanthemums, or even a bit of both. These flowers add colour as well as amazing texture. In some cases you can add individual flowers but when it comes to fillers, adding clusters is often more effective.
If you only want to use purple flowers, you can use a combination of the flowers mentioned above to create the desired effect. Usually, it’s best to place the darkest shade of purple in the centre of the arrangement and then work your way out to the lightest.
Remember that you will also need the right container or vase. The vase will depend on the type of flowers, the length of their stems, and the size of the bouquet. For example, if you choose an orchid, you might want to place it in a shallow black dish and add some bamboo foliage and a small cluster of small flowers at the base of the arrangement.
