Summer is the season we all look forward to with time spent in swimming pools, playing with friends as children, and gathering for barbecues and parties. It’s also the perfect time to decorate your events and home with summer flowers from Moravian Florist. Sunflowers, roses, and lilies are just the start of a beautiful summer bouquet.
Sunflowers… The Perfect Symbol of Sunshine and Fun
The long, lazy days of summer lead to twilight gatherings with friends, fireworks in July, and star-filled nights that make it easy to forget winter. The perfect way to decorate your summer events is with sunflowers, and you have so many ways to have fun with these cheerful flowers.
You might choose a large vase of sunflowers for the middle of the buffet table where everyone will pick up their chips and veggies at your barbecue. If you want to stretch your budget a little, you might place single sunflowers in tall vases for placement around your party. Your guests will see sunflowers everywhere as sunny, elegant décor.
And what if you’re stuck inside an office building for the summer? Well, a huge vase of sunflowers is the perfect way to bring a little sunshine into the office. Place the vase in the break room instead of the entry hall or reception area so everyone can enjoy the flowers as they relax at lunch.
Other Ideas for Summer Flowers
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that virtually any flower is available in the summer. Although some flowers like tulips tend to get a little rare in the summer months, you can find many other flowers that harmonize wonderfully with summer gatherings.
If you’re hosting a summer brunch with close friends, you might want to decorate with a vase of roses. You can get roses in virtually any color, but pink roses are a wonderful choice for a summer party. You can also choose orange or yellow roses for an outdoor garden party.
For a summer birthday party, an ideal flower is the carnation, which looks absolutely stunning in a large, lush vase but also looks lovely in small vases of three or four stems each. Carnations also mix beautifully with roses when they’re all chosen in the same color.
Decorating with flowers is fun at any time of the year, but it’s a particularly happy way to dress up your summer party whether you’re celebrating with hotdogs and potato chips or tea and crumpets.
