We know it can sometimes feel overwhelming to select which flowers to have delivered. If you can’t decide, why not let our designers pick for you? The Florious team has over a decade of design experience, so you are in good hands. You can’t go wrong with one of our designer’s choice bouquets! Our designers use the freshest flowers of the season, and keep an eye out for unique, interesting flowers that may only be around a few weeks a year to include in our bouquets.
Wondering what you might see this season? Here are a few of our favorite summer flowers that you may find in a Florious Designer’s Choice arrangement!
Anthurium have been making a resurgence in floral design lately, partly for their striking shape and the variety of colors both pastel and bright that they come in. We’ve used a bright pink variety in a few of our summer arragngements this year to add brightness to our bouquets. Anthurium add an interesting, tropical touch that perfectly compliments any arrangement!
We’re all about textures at Florious, and Safflower (known for its unique orange blossoms) is one of our favorite ways to add it to our bouquets in the summer. This flower has a thistle-like appearance with fluffy, Dr. Seuss-esque blooms which makes it a fun addition to any bouquet.
Best known for the oil extracted from the seeds, safflowers can also be used in cooking as a saffron substitute or as a natural dye source. However, our safflower is not food grade so no eating your bouquet!
Sarracenia, also known as Pitcher Plant, is a flower local to the Northeast that is recognizable for its trumpet-like shape. Sarracenia are only available in the summer and early fall so we love to enjoy their unique shapes and varied colors while they’re available!
Don’t let Sarracenia’s delicate beauty fool you- in the wild they are carnivorous and mainly feast off insects trapped inside their blooms.
Protea are another tropical flower that we love to put in our summer Designer’s Choice bouquets. This season, we love the pink ice variety with its velvety petals and on-trend color.
These flowers are sure to be the showstoppers in any arrangement as they add a unique dramatic flare.
Kale- it’s not just for salads and smoothies! Our designers like to use kale as a part of arrangements because of its great texture and because it is so long lasting. Kale adds an interesting botanical element to a bouquet that ensures your arrangement will stand out!
So those are a few of our favorite summer flowers! The blooms listed above are just a few of our summer favorites because of their uniqueness and seasonality. However, flowers aren’t one size fits all, and our designers use a wide variety of seasonal flowers that fit every occasion and recipient.
