Nothing quite compares to flowers when it comes to expressing our feelings. A fresh bouquet can bring a smile to your face, and a centerpiece floral arrangement can make a routine dinner party extraordinary. When you choose flowers for a special occasion, you want those flowers to capture the emotions of that moment. Choosing specific flowers and greenery for visual impact will ensure your arrangements are memorable and unique.
Flowers Choices That Never Fail to Impress
Though there’s an occasion for nearly all flowers and plants, some simply stand out from the rest. Here are a few that make an impact.
Roses are the most popular flowers in the world and a classic choice for creating visual appeal in floral arrangements. If you’re interested in creating a more unique arrangement, consider choosing a less traditional color, like lavender, or focus on a modern floral design.
Gerbera Daisies are a wonderful choice if you are looking for a flower to make an impression. These flowers have wonderful large 4-inch-wide blooms and are available in a wide variety of bright colors. With hues such as yellow, orange, and red, Gerbera Daisies not only symbolize happiness but add a burst of sunshine to any bouquet.
Carnations may not seem a likely choice for impact in a floral arrangement, but these hardy flowers have been around for over 2,000 years. They are as pretty as they are tough. They have a lovely light sweet aroma and are available in a wide array of colors. Consider adding some antique colored carnations to a floral arrangement for a tea party or bridal shower.
No flower makes quite the dramatic statement that a gladiolus brings to floral design. These tall thick-stemmed flowers add an element of height to arrangements, as well as a touch of elegance. They are available in a wide variety of colors from pastels to rich hues, such as deep shades of purple and red.
Lilies are a stunning flower popular in floral design not only for their beauty but also for their distinctive fragrance. Popular choices include Stargazer and Peruvian lilies, as well as Calla lilies. Consider adding them in shades of orange to bring a burst of color to your next bouquet.
There are several non-traditional filler options that will make your floral arrangement stand out. Consider adding fresh herbs or wheat for a rustic bouquet, or add feathers to create a bit of drama in the design. Queen Anne’s Lace and Bells of Ireland make a beautiful filler in place of traditional greens.
