Mixed-Floral Bouquets To Match Your Theme
One trend we’re sure will surface in 2012 is the proliferation of mixed-floral bouquets. We’re talking multi-coloured bunches that combine an unexpected array of blooms, leaves and even grasses to create a true floral statement. To inspire you we’ve gathered up four fabulous bouquets courtesy of Toronto-based florist Cool, Green & Shady to suit varying themes. Flip through these floral options to see just a few of the ways the mixed-floral bouquet can be interpreted.
- <strong>RUSTIC</strong><br />
For woodsy appeal, anchor your bouquet with sunflowers and build upon them with pretty purple limonium, eye-catching white star of Bethlehem and vibrant orange asclepia.
- <strong>MODERN</strong><br />
For a modern take on the trend choose giant blooms like these yellow-tipped purple commercial mums beautifully wrapped with strands of lily grass.
- <strong>WHIMSICAL</strong><br />
If you're looking for something totally show-stopping opt for punchy yellow dahlias accented with soft pink sweetheart roses, orange asclepia and playful berzillia berries.
- <strong>CLASSIC</strong><br />
For a classic take on the trend, ask your florist to work with some perennial favourites, like spray roses and calla lilies, combined with felt-textured dusty miller.
