The balmy summer months are a time for outdoor activities, patriotic festivities and sunny celebrations. The right flowers can say “thank you” to your host and lift the mood at any summer gathering. Flowers should ideally be selected based upon the season, the weather, the type of party and the preferences of the host. Ideal flower choices for summer parties include:
The distinctive look and floral scent of roses can add a touch of class to any summer gathering. An arrangement with peach and coral roses and other flowers or light pink Chelsea roses can be the perfect gift. A lavender rose or soft pink arrangement can bring a gorgeous light pastel accent to a summer gathering.
What better flower to help honor and celebrate the summer months than the sunflower? its warmth, radiance and sheer size are sure to make a statement and bring even more vibrance to a summer occasion.
Daisies and Wildflowers
Daisies and wildflowers thrive out in the wild in summer and they can make a lovely centerpiece for a picnic, barbecue or outdoor dinner party. A pre-made Cut Flower Garden arrangement is beautiful and convenient. If you have access to wildflowers outdoors, pick an arrangement and bring them in a Mason jar for a rustic country touch. If you’re pressed for time, consider ordering a white and yellow Daisy Specialty arrangement or Hoo-Radiant arrangement featuring roses, carnations and daisies.
There are certain flower colors, petal shapes and sizes that epitomize summer, and a summer arrangement combines them to add lightness and class to your summer gatherings. A Heavenly Summer Breeze arrangement will brighten the mood at the table, and Summertime Splash in bright summer colors is available in two different vase styles. Bowl of Blooms and Buds brings both flowers and fruit to the occasion.
Red, White and Blue Arrangements
Flowers can also help to bring a patriotic feel to your summer. Whether you’re attending a Memorial Day, Labor Day or Fourth of July gathering, there are a variety of arrangements that honor the red, white and blue. Our Nation’s Pride, Rare Beauty and Tribute of Courage arrangements are all overflowing with U.S. glory and patriotic pride.
Whether you’re invited to a Fourth of July barbecue, an evening alfresco dinner party or a casual picnic with friends, you don’t have to show up empty-handed. Make an impression and give appreciation to your host by giving the gift of a beautiful summer flower arrangement.
