Hooray for Spring! What a wonderful time to be in love! When the world is bursting with new life, bounty, and beauty. . . it’s hard not to get caught up in it all. Here at VW, we’ve been busy browsing some lovely spring blossoms to inspire you. Enjoy!
Simple & elegant arrangements of Forsythia. Check it out!
Simply Beautiful: Forsythia
Forsythia’s bright yellow blooms are sure to bring some springtime joy to your wedding décor. They grow on large shrubs making it possible to get some nice height for table centerpieces and the like. They could adapt to any style and look very elegant even on their own. Play with the type of vase they are arranged in to give the impression you like. Add more volume to make your arrangement more full and impressive or keep it simple for a minimal, sleek look.
Gorgeous! Our favorite bouquet Spring 2016! Find it here.
Big and Bold: Protea
These flower blossoms(pictured above-center of bouquet) can reach 12 inches in full bloom! Wowie! With just one of these at the center of your bouquet, you can make a big impression. Bring in a variety of smaller, delicate blossoms like Sweet pea, and greenery like Eucalyptus-both readily available in spring and you will have a spectacular arrangement. Our favorite bouquet for 2016 features this spectacular flower, which is also grown commercially in local Santa Barbara, CA! According to Teleflora, a company connecting florists and customers for over 81 years, the protea flower is a symbol of diversity and courage.
Soft & Sweet
To us here at VW, nothing says sweet springtime wedding like Ranunculus! With that said, we discovered a new love this 2016 season: Helleborus. Apparently they have extremely long lasting flowers when planted in gardens, and they also come in a very wide range of colors. They bloom in early spring along with the very distinct and cheery Daffodil. Beautiful and interesting on their own, they would also make a great addition to a mixed bouquet of springtime flowers including Zinnias and Dahlias.
