Summer flower arrangements for your home

With so many blooms available at your local florist during this time of year, now is the time to get creative and make your own summer flower arrangements. Even if you have never tried flower arranging before, here are some simple designs that anyone can make.

Summer floral wreath

Instead of ordering a wreath made up of artificial flowers, create your own using fresh blooms! These summer flower arrangements are great because you can use them to decorate doors, walls and even tables. All you need is some floral foam in the form of a circle along with some mesh-type wire and your favourite blooms. Soak the wire-lined foam and arrange your blooms evenly so that your wreath is beautifully balanced. Attach a ribbon or hook if you are planning on hanging the wreath. Set on a tray of you want to use it to decorate your table.

Floral mural

At first sight, they might seem like complex summer flower arrangements but they are really easy to assemble. All you need to do is use an old picture frame as a base for your display. Glue some floral foam to the base before carefully hydrating it. Use a spray bottle or pour water very slowly over the foam until it is properly saturated. Now insert your flowers. Make sure that the picture frame hook is strong enough to support the mural.

Floral backdrop

This is another design that might seem like a lot of work but it is great for special events. If you are hosting a party for a birthday, anniversary or any other occasion, you want to give your guests the perfect selfie backdrop. Simply attach some transparent or semi-transparent fabric to a curtain rod and suspend it on an empty wall. Now attach your flowers to the fabric for colour and texture. When it comes to these types of summer flower arrangements, you need to make them at the last minute because they do not have a source of water. Also, take care when choosing your flowers. You want to make sure that you choose the hardiest types of blooms.


Let’s not forget the fabulous floral centrepiece! Every table deserves to be decorated with at least a bud flower arrangement. The larger the table, the larger your summer flower arrangements can be. Bud flower arrangements can be highly effective when it come to decorating small tables. You can even use several bud arrangements along the centre of a long, yet narrow table.

When shopping for summer flower arrangements, seasonal availability is important. Make sure that you choose flowers that are readily available and in bloom during this time. This will ensure that you are getting the best and freshest blooms. Your flowers can be sourced from local growers rather than importing.
