Summer is the season for fresh, vibrant florals in abundance. From amber-colored daisies to powder pink snapdragons, this posts touches on the best in-season blooms to adorn your home with this summer. So whether you’re throwing a DIY Flower Arranging Party with your girlfriends, hosting friends and relatives for a summertime bash, or just love the feeling of fresh blooms in your home, read on for the optimal in-season arrangements to embellish your living space:
Daisies come in all shapes and sizes, but the bold gerbera daisy makes for the perfect statement piece. Whether you choose to mesh together an array of colorful gerbera daisies for the dinner table or let a single gerbera daisy be the main focus amongst delicate wildflowers and greenery, your arrangement will be a showstopper.
These hardy flowers are absolutely stunning with their billowing petals and length. Much like gerbera daisies, snapdragons are grown in a variety of hues, ranging from dusty pink to rich merlot. In fact, they can be described as miniature gladiolus, as their petals and stems mimic similar shapes. Perfect for a sweet living room addition or by your bedside, snapdragons are absolutely divine in terms of eliciting tranquility, happiness, and relaxation.
Is there a more classic summer bloom than a sunflower? Not only do they beckon positivity and happiness, but their delicate yellow petals surrounded by abundant disc florets are undeniably beautiful. Perfect for a casual summertime get-together, a cookout, or a laid-back dinner party. As a bonus, sunflowers tend to keep their life quite a while after being snipped so long as you keep the water fresh!
If you’re looking for a classy floral arrangement for an upscale gathering, orchids should be on your radar. Their high maintenance charisma and elegance signal an elaborate occasion. An orchid arrangement will sit beautifully in the entrance way, a hallway, or on the floor close to the dinner table. From blushing pink to white, orchids come in a variety of colors that add the perfect finishing touch to any space.
Chrysanthemums closely resemble a daisy but differ in the sense that their abundant petals come together to create a billowing blossom. They symbolize optimism and joy and are the ideal addition to a joyful celebration. In fact, Japan celebrates chrysanthemums annually at the “Festival of Happiness.” Sprinkle these showstoppers into any arrangement to add some whimsy and playfulness to your space.
Poppies are quite the intricate flower, ranging from just 2-4 inches in diameter and growing on stems that are up to 2 feet tall. The colors spectrum ranges from rich red to pure white. Although poppies seem delicate, they were the first wildflower to germinate on disturbed ground and are exceptionally resilient flowers. Blooming from mid-June through October, the “flower of love” is a great addition to a romantic celebration or an intimate gathering.
Hydrangeas are such a classic summer flower that steal the show (and our hearts). These flowers are super easy to snip, maintain, and showcase in your space. Ranging from sky blue and white to violet, hydrangeas are the perfect addition to any summer occasion. As a symbol of understanding emotion, a hydrangea bouquet can be the perfect touch to nearly any occasion. What makes them even better? They dry beautifully and easily!
