Fabulous Flowers for Winter Gatherings

November 14, 2011

Most of the time, the flowers we see most during the winter months are those traditional poinsettia plants positioned at the front doors of homes and retail shops.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a nice deep red poinsettia too; but if you’re planning a special holiday gathering or even a winter wedding, you may desire a little more pizzazz.

Some of the most beautiful flowers in Denver for winter weddings are ranunculus.  These delicately elegant blooms grow in white as well as vibrant shades of pink, red, orange, yellow and purple.  For wedding bouquets in Denver, we might suggest a bouquet of dazzling white ranunculus with a touch of deep green foliage to accent.  A nice suggestion; but our main priority is to listen to your distinct needs and then exceed them.

There’s something special about white during the winter months, especially when you throw in a splash of color to add visual interest to your floral arrangement.  This is true whether we’re talking about a wedding bouquet or a centerpiece for your holiday meal – or even if we’re just looking at the special floral arrangement you place on your bedside table!  Other popular white flowers include gerber daisies, white or pale pink roses, calla lilies, mums or freesia, a fragrant favorite!  Orchids are also highly sought after for winter weddings; loved for their delicate beauty.

 Not every winter gathering needs to be dressed in white and silver.  There are no rules that say you cannot delve into deep colors for any special occasion.  From December through February, rich and aromatic reds are extremely popular for use in centerpieces, bouquets and even wreaths. Some of the best options to give you a blast of romantic red are roses, calla lilies, anemones, amaryllis, and cymbidium orchids.  Any of these flowers may be bunched tightly together for a modern, structural display or may be inserted into a bed of greens, a loose wreath or a full bouquet.  Remember that the red palette includes far more than the standard ruby red you might initially envision.  Red flowers in Denver may also include hues of deep red, blood orange and wine.

To have the most fun with the fabulous flowers in Denver, mix colors and textures for the highest degree of chic play.  There is no limit to the various complimentary flowers or natural elements you can use; we incorporate all sorts of interesting combinations in our wedding bouquets in Denver!  There’s nothing that says you have to stick with any particular color, flower, or even that you have to stick strictly with flowers in your focal point arrangements.  Today, feathers are a hugely popular addition seen in a wide variety of floral arrangements.  Another unique touch would be to use winter berries, such as snowberry, hypericum, ilex, and pepper berry.

There are so many ideas to make your winter florals totally amazing, we could write about it all day!  Rather than do that, I’ll just encourage you to come by and see what we can create together.
