If you feel a familiar thrill each year at the prospect of decorating your home with flowers to celebrate the summer solstice, you already know how many beautiful choices you have at the fingertips of your trusted florist. Whether you are a fan of wildflowers, spectacularly luxurious rose arrangements or something that falls somewhere between, the world of flowers belongs to you each June. Turn this coming June 21st into a flower extravaganza when you consider incorporating some of the following flower and arrangement ideas into your own special mix.
- Give Your Home a Run for the Roses This June. As rose festivals approach each June, you can still visit those, but you can also have a sampling of these glorious creatures decorating your home when you contact your local florist to see what they can do to help you create the perfect arrangement for your home. Choose from an artfully designed and vibrantly colored springtime mix, a surprisingly extensive array of pink elegance and some lily laden bouquets to keep your home flush in gorgeous hues, reminding you that June 21st only comes around once a year, and it is worth celebrating.
- Try Your Hand at Tropical Treasures. Orchids offer the epitome of exotic and tropical flowers to introduce to your flower rotation. Their intricate, yet somehow minimal at the same time, nature is an eye-catcher and a bit of a showstopper. Anytime you have guests, they will stand in awe of these beauties. Whether you choose the Phalo or the Bodhisattva, you will love the alien ambiance that your orchids create. Don’t forget to take a look at the birds of paradise, red ginger, anthuriums and many other tropical delights to create a stunning arrangement.
- Stay Classic with a Traditional Bouquet or Two. If you love a large variety of flowers that some might consider more standard, a traditional bouquet will work wonders to liven up your home once you’ve finished up your spring cleaning. Nothing says “summer has arrived” like a beaming sunflower or two peeking out amidhydrangeas, statice and blossoming roses. Add in some delicate pearls, which are June’s birthstone, and your ode to summer should feel complete with this Pearl Jam.
