Office flowers for the summer season

If you’re a business owner or manager, you want your workplace to look professional and welcoming to customers. Office flowers, displayed correctly, are the perfect way to decorate a professional environment while maintaining the company’s image. Now, before your florist sends flowers, you should take some time to consider your options. Choosing the right flowers for your workplace is crucial.

Colour scheme

Choosing cut office flowers during the summer months is one of the easiest months to start. This is because there are so many different flowers in bloom that you will have endless options to choose from. The first thing you will need to decide on will be a colour scheme. You can choose a few different combinations so that once the first bouquet starts to go bad, you can replace it with a bouquet in another colour or colours. During the summer you should choose colours that reflect the season. That means bright, bold hues, but white can also be included to help the colours pop even more.

Seasonal blooms

Once you have chosen the colours that you particularly like, you can go looking for office flowers in those colours. It is always a good idea to choose flowers that bloom in that respective season. Throughout the summer, choose seasonal summer flowers like calla lilies, cockscombs, roses, and amaranth, just to name a few.

Possible allergies

Even if you don’t have any pollen allergies, remember that your employees and customers may be. For this reason it’s also a good idea to avoid office flowers that are known to carry and spread large amounts of pollen. If you really have your heart set on a particular flower but it has too much pollen, check with your florist if they can remove it. Many cut flowers actually tend to last longer if the pollen is removed. Also, by avoiding high pollen plants or removing pollen, your workplace will stay much cleaner. Pollen can dirty and stain tablecloths and clothes.

Something exotic

Take the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone even a little. Instead of ordering the same office flowers you normally would, do a little exploring with some orchids, lilies, kangaroo paws, peonies and irises that you may never have had on display before.

Perfect spot

Finally, make sure you don’t place your office flowers too close to air conditioners or windows. Keep them out of direct sunlight as this will lead to more bacteria growth in the water and speaking of water, it is summer after all so make sure you refill the vase and clean it every few days.

These are some great tips to help you choose the ideal office flowers and ensure that they last as long as possible. You can even set up a regular flower delivery with your favourite florist to ensure that you get a different bouquet every few weeks to brighten up your work environment.
