TOP 5 WINTER FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS

Seun A

Winter is here. Summer has come and  gone and with it, it’s dazzling array of summer flowers. In this post, we will be discussing some of the amazing winter based floral arrangements that you can try this holiday season. You will be surprised to find more floral selections than you think.

                 Top 5 Winter Floral Arrangements

DREAMY ARRANGEMENT WITH A HINT OF SILVER, WHITE, AND GRAY

Make your place look fresh and elegant with this arrangement inspired by the shades of winter sky. Here is all you have to do to get this look:
1. Select your vase and choose gleaming metallic material to uplift the subtle colors of flowers or choose a wooden vase to give the authentic look.
2. Start with an ornamental plant which should seems to be covered with snow or should have a layer of white over it. The idea of choosing this type of plant is that it appears to be covered in the dust of snowflakes, which gives a beautiful effect that fits the theme.
3. To give the structure to the arrangement, add the sprigs of different plants, along with leaves of white pine if available.              

4. Lastly, add some more leaves for depth to finish the look.

Also, along with these, add little sheer cloth to the vase to enhance the floral beauty.The contrasting pink and mauve with the hint of green and white completes this delicate look.

Ideas For Events & Flower Collections Nearing Autumn

Seun A

It is well known that flowers have the ability to bring a smile to anyone’s face; besides beautifying our gardens and the trees and plants surrounding our houses, they also beautify everything from our living to work spaces. They can be arranged in many different methods, for example, in the form of a bouquet, gift basket, sympathy basket, custom wedding flower arrangement, etc.

There are various types of flowers available, however, not all flowers are available throughout the entirety of the year. Let us consider how there are four main seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Flowers of a vast variety are closely bound to these seasons and we can expect to see unique collections in relation to the seasons as they pass. There a few flowers that do break this rule, though, like the Lily, Asiatic Lily, Gerbera Daisy.

Autumn or late Summer (the season of fall) is an especially great time to summon the refreshing and joyous nature of flowers. This is when we can witness many different and colorful varieties blooming throughout the world. The fact that the leaves also change and look their best during this season make our gardens and bouquets look especially beautiful and charming. Autumn is also when the crops harvest in the southern hemisphere, hence Autumn is often known as the season of 'primary harvest.' Flowers like Gerbera Daisy, Lily, Orchid, Sunflower are quite commonly found during this season.


Fall Flower Arrangements In Nature


As mentioned earlier, during Autumn we get to witness a colorful display of flowers; some consider this season the best time of the year for our gardens and other foliage spaces. The trees, even, change color and add to the scenic beauty. New York, the green space that it is, goes by the nickname the Big Apple and is famous for not only it’s skyscrapers, the huge pizza slices, & other things, but for its bountiful natural settings dispersed amongst an urban landscape. What many people do not know, though, is that New York is also one of the best places in the world during the fall season and because of such beautiful green spaces and gardens. Here is a short list of the places one must visit during the fall in New York for a unique and special feast of flowers and colorful trees.

  • Brooklyn Botanical garden

  • Buffalo and Erie Country Botanical Garden

  • Highland Botanical Park

  • Clark Botanic Garden

  • New York Botanical Garden

  • Queens Botanical Garden


Popular Flower Arrangements

It is truly amazing how flowers can be arranged in so many different ways to form unique floral designs. Such arrangements can be used to beautify many things, including domestic areas like one's house; consider these custom flower arrangements as they are very popular during special occasions that occur during the Fall season. Here is a short list of them:

  • Fan Flower Shaped arrangements: This type of arrangement happens to be one of the most common types. This is made possible by arranging the flowers in the shape of a fan. This type of arrangement also makes use of leaves which are arranged in such a manner that they appear to be the blades of a fan.

  • Elliptical Flower Arrangements: As the name suggests, the flowers are arranged in the form of an ellipse. Flowers like Sunflowers, Dahlia, Tuberoses, and Lilies are mainly used for this type of arrangement, although there are many others that can be used.

  • The ‘S’ Shaped flower arrangement: A flower arrangement in the shape of ‘S’ that takes the form of bouquets and baskets. This type of arrangement is usually bigger compared to the other ones due to the shape and design. This type of arrangement stands out and turns many heads.

  • The Cascade Flower Arrangement: This too is a stunning flower arrangement that is quite bountiful in size. Several flowers are used along with their leaves and even the stem to make this arrangement possible, in addition to which green grass is used to give it a bushy appearance. This type of appearance is very popular during wedding ceremonies and even wedding anniversaries. This is very popular all over the world due the bright colors and lovely fragrance.

  • Oval Shaped Flower Arrangement: The Oval arrangement is one of the most favorite arrangement of many florists. They trim the flowers and their stem along with the leaves in order to make an oval shaped design with the flowers. This can be in the form of a basket, bouquet or even bunches. This arrangement is popular for the purpose of interior decoration.

  • Triangular Arrangement: The flowers need to be cut and trimmed to achieve the shape of a triangle. Ideally, this will be a series of large flowers in the center and a parallel set of smaller ones surrounding it.  Typically, this type of arrangement takes the form of a bouquet of bright flowers covered with glossy, transparent films of paper.

 

Flowers To The Rescue

Flowers have been historically used for decoration and this dates back well before the 17th century; even the ancient Greeks garnished brides and grooms with fantastic garlands around their necks and heads. These garnishings were symbolic of new life - they can be symbolic for you too! Such traditions are still followed to some extent. In this sense we can consider how flowers are still used extensively during weddings and the number of special emotions and sentiments they symbolize. From special floral arrangements to decoration of wedding areas, they are found in organized arrangements in order to elicit sentimental values. Besides this, brides are known to make use of flowers along with their wedding dress as well. The grooms and brides maids also often carry wonderful flowers down the aisle, distributing good scents in order to set the tone and mood for such special occasions.

It is also believed that there was a unique “flower language” in Turkey prior to the 17th Century. This began by lovers making uses of flowers to send messages and later became known as ‘Florigraphy’. You can make special use of florigraphy too in order to show your loved ones how much you admire them!
