Nothing is more summertime then bright colored flowers! When creating a fun summertime bouquet for a party this season, consider a white basket filled with flowers that will bring summertime smiles. This basket designed by one of our talented designers inspires my post. It features some standard mixed ferns and lacy asparagus fern as the framework. The different types of florals make you think it came straight from the garden with bright orange gerberas, dark plum and yello carnations, summertime daisys in purples/yellows/whites, purple larkspur including the little shoots, pink mini carns and white roses. The topper is the addition of some hot pink flamingo straws that we got for $1 at the dollar store. This came about from a request from a customer to add a flamingo to a design. Next time you want a fun item in a display just ask Your Florist…you never know what inspiration might sprout from it!
It is Father’s Day this weekend and perhaps you are looking for something a bit different for Dad this year. Perhaps you have given a gift in the past or dinner. How about creating a real sense of celebration this year with some color! A bouquet of balloons in clear shades of blues, yellow, oranges, reds would be a great option with fun Mylar attached. Pair that with a colorful wicker basket of fruit and cheeses and you have a real feast for not only the eyes but the tummy as well. Your local Florist does not only deal in florals, but often can create displays with balloons and food. And what Dad does not like food? Once you have the basics continue creating a real fun vibe with ribbons and bows. However, don’t rule out flowers because lots of Dads truly love flowers and the sentiment behind it. So don’t forget about Dad this year and create a day that he will always remember. Something a little unsuspected and thoughtful with maybe a surprise delivery attached.
