Our top 5 Summer Flowers
We are totally in love with our Summer Rainbow Hand-tied! This seasonal floral gift includes happy yellow sunflowers – which for us sunflowers are THE flower to symbolise summer is here. We add blue delphinium, pink and orange roses, blue veronica and lush green foliage to create a rainbow of bold colours. When we deliver the Summer Rainbow hand-tied it always brings a smile to the recipients face!
After a big dose of Sunflowers this August? Why not pop along to The Pop Up Farm in St Albans who have fields full of Sunflowers to explore - easily reached from the M1 it is a great summer day out with friends and kids!
These delicate flowers bloom in early summer and have the most gorgeous soft scent to them. We love using them in wedding flowers during the warmer months, as the pretty blossoms look amazing nestled with romantic roses. The meaning of the Sweet Pea flower is blissful happiness, making them a sentimental reason to include them at weddings.
A trend we have seen in 2019 and carrying into 2020, is natural blooms and elegant colours for wedding flowers. Happy couples are asking our wedding florists for relaxed style bridal bouquets, delicate table centres in country style jars and oversized flowing floral displays for the ceremony.
A wedding we designed the flowers for early this month is the perfect example – using white peonies and ivory roses complimented with eucalyptus and gyp. Peonies worked perfectly for this natural bridal bouquet – Summer is the season for peonies, and the gorgeous texture and shape creates a luxurious feel for summer flowers wedding.
We know picking roses may seem a bit cliche, but they really are beautiful in the summer months! Funky Flowers team carefully source our rose variety all year round, so in the summer we can use English Garden style roses which are full of fragrance and range of pastel colours.
Don’t be fooled by the name! Stocks are pretty special flowers, and we love using them in summer bouquets becasue of their interesting petals and pretty pastel shades. Stocks bloom right through to end of summer, so we get to enjoy them for the summer months. The meaning of Stock flower is enjoy life – so stocks are a great choice of flower to send for celebrating a big birthday, engagement, new home or graduation day.
Check out our stunning Fragrant Perfect Gift, which includes pink stocks, pinks roses and sweet William beautifully presented in a luxury rose gold vase. A gorgeous summer gift and hot on trend with the rose gold and English country garden feel.
