The Perfect Flowers for a Spring Bouquet

The perfect flowers for a spring bouquet

With each season, we welcome a fresh new selection of flowers. If you take a look around online, you will notice how online florists select special flowers to promote under their seasonal flowers category. This makes it even easier to find a seasonal bouquet. Not only are these flowers more cost effective, but they also last longer. When flowers are artificially cultivated or imported, they might experience a certain degree of shock when exposed to conditions that might not be favourable. When you want the perfect spring bouquet, it's essential to buy fresh spring flowers.

Lilies are favoured for several occasions including Mother's Day and birthdays. Fortunately, there are a number of types of lilies available during the spring season and, of these, the Casa Blanca Lilies are of the most popular. Calla Lilies are also a popular and fragrant choice. They can be displayed on their own or along with other flowers to make an even more impressive statement. Many Mother's Day flower arrangements include Stargazer Lilies due to their sweet smell and abundant beauty. If you are concerned about pollen, the good news is that the pollen can be removed before you put these flowers on display.

For those who are looking for something a bit more exotic, you may enjoy the Bird of Paradise flower. This flower also blooms during the spring season and its bright colours are perfect for brightening up any room. Delphiniums and Dahlias are great for adding texture to a bouquet as well as amazing colour. If you fancy something particularly colourful and interesting, you could opt for a Protea bouquet. These flowers come from countries like South Africa and they are known for their wonderfully large blooms. They are known for blooming in the spring but they are protected which means that you should only ever buy such a bouquet from a reputable florist.

When decorating your home in the spring, it's the perfect opportunity to let nature in. Cherry, peach, and apple blossoms can also be particularly beautiful additions to flower arrangements thanks to their soft and delicate appearance.

Some flowers are considered a staple for florists. This means that, even if they aren't in season, they are still readily available. Roses, carnations, and tulips are all excellent examples of flowers you are bound to find year round at your favourite florist. That said, these flowers are generally more expensive when not in season. Of course, even if they do have a higher price tag, adding a few stems to a mixed bouquet won't affect the affordability of the bouquet too much, if at all.

Another great tip to keep in mind is that this is the season for soft colours. Summer is great for displaying bright blooms but pastels are best for spring. You can add a few darker hints here and there but, for the most part, your bouquet should have more of a delicate appearance.
