Many memories are made over the summer months, as we are drawn to gather often with those we love. Long sunny days and a relaxed vibe encourage us to spend more time outside, linger on the back deck with friends and cook our meals on the grill. For all our parties, whether a few cold drinks with the girls or a barbecue with the neighborhood – summer flowers are the perfect way to add some natural summer ambiance.
In the summertime, many beautiful flowers are in season. Some of these include zinnias and marigolds; petunias and periwinkle; and many varieties of roses. One of the most prolific blooms in this season is the sunflower – not only does it’s color and composition resemble the sun, but the flower is known to turn its face towards the sun throughout the day. Sunflowers are impressive in nature, growing on stalks that can be as tall as 15 feet although even at two or three feet they tower above most of the blooms in the garden. In a bouquet, they are just as dramatic, with larger flowers and a bold visage.
The expert floral designers at Robertson’s Flowers know exactly how to pair summer flowers and accents for a gorgeous arrangement; whether adding succulents, green solidago, or hydrangea, their skilled eye is adept at making your summertime centerpieces works of art. For instance, augmenting the fiery yellows and oranges of sunflowers and roses with creams, blues, and greens both cool off the bouquet and gives it a balanced color palette. These wildflower arrangements will provide a beautiful backdrop to your summer get-togethers.
Add the perfect finishing touch to your summer soiree by choosing one of our featured bouquets or consult with one of Robertson’s professional designers to create a unique arrangement of your favorite seasonal blooms.
