Spring arrangements and the best flowers to use
Each season has it’s own benefits and things that we can look forward to. Spring is no exception and this is quite literally when the world around us seems to bounce back after a cold winter. With so many beautiful fresh blooms from which to choose, it’s no wonder spring arrangements find their way into homes around the world. If you are not sure what to choose the next time you’re shopping for a spring bouquet, here are some excellent ideas.
When choosing lilies to create or form part of spring arrangements, you should keep in mind that there are several varieties. Some of the most popular include the Casa Blanca Lily, the Stargazer Lily and the Calla Lily. Not only are these blooms known for their beauty, but also their sweet scent. You can be sure that your home will look amazing and smell like spring too! If you are concerned about pollen staining your furniture, remember that you can always remove the stamen from oriental lilies. This also extends the lifespan of these blooms and ensures that you get to enjoy them for that much longer.
If you want your spring arrangements to really stand out, you should shop around for exotic blooms. Examples include dahlias, delphiniums, bird of paradise flowers and even proteas. These blooms are known for their bright colours and amazing texture that simply cannot be compared with any other type of bloom.
How about fruit
Remember, you don’t need to stick to the usual roses and carnations when it comes to flower choices. Spring arrangements can also include fruit blossoms like those from apple, cherry and peach trees. They are quite delicate so make sure that you work carefully with these stems.
Apart from the blooms mentioned above, your spring arrangements can also include some blooms that are considered staples for any florist. These include daisies, carnations, roses and chrysanthemums. Ask your florist what they have in stock and take your pick!
Don’t forget about the importance of choosing the right colour or colours for your spring arrangements too! Spring is not so much about bright and bold as it is about light and ‘fluffy’. So, look for pastel shades of purple, pink, blue and yellow. You can even include white here and there to bring it all together.
