Summer is relaxed and carefree. Our gatherings tend to be informal and impromptu, get-togethers with friends and family on a back deck or patio that last long into the summer evening. For these occasions, there are many seasonal flowers that make bouquets worthy of your parties – vibrant gerbera daisies and zinnias, iris blooms, and sunflowers. With vivid colors and wild natural beauty, these flowers exude the spirit of the season and provide the perfect accompaniment to picnics and barbecues.
But sometimes our summer parties are a bit more elegant; whether a garden tea party or a cocktail soiree, these events can have an element of sophistication that a wildflower bouquet may not be appropriate for. In these cases, there are summer blossoms that can be used to design graceful floral arrangements that will make the ideal centerpieces for your tables. In one of our favorite arrangements, orange roses, and yellow calla lilies provide the warm sunshine tones, while soft hydrangea and lilies accent the arrangement. Another summer flower that is not often utilized for social occasions but is strikingly beautiful is the gladioli bloom. This regal flower is prolific in the summer months, and when designed by a professional florist, these dramatic stalks make a truly unique and spectacular floral arrangement.
