3 Whimsical Floral Ideas To Reflect The Winter-Spring Transition
Spring may feel far away what with six more weeks of winter promised by Punxsutawney Phil. But with the first day of spring coming up fast, you can start to smell the roses early by bringing beautiful spring floral arrangements into your home.
If you're not quite feeling the spring fever yet, here are some specialty floral arrangements that mix both winter and spring aesthetics to bring you the transitional season look of your dreams.
Spring is a time of bright, happy colors. To reflect the winter-spring transition, consider mixing candy-colored blossoms such as poppies, tulips, or dahlias with white anemones. The dark eyes of the anemones peek out from the softer colors and give the arrangement a subtle winter flare but with the whimsy of spring. However, if you choose to use tulips in your arrangement be sure to know they have a short lifespan and may only last between three and seven days.
Bring in the peach and pine
Peach is one of those colors that speaks directly to spring and not just because peaches are in season by mid-May. It's because peach is the softer sister of summer's vibrant shades of yellow and orange. Therefore, consider mixing peach-colored flowers such as roses and dahlias with the evergreens that speak directly to winter. The dark green of the pine will make the peach flowers pop and you'll have one unique arrangement that complements both seasons.
Mix white roses and wildflowers
Another way to play with the winter-spring transition with your floral arrangements is to add wildflowers to a traditional white arrangement. White is often attributed to winter arrangements because it reflects the snow and the symbolic death of nature. However, white can also symbolize the rebirth of spring. By adding wildflowers to an arrangement of white roses, you can add hints of color while playing with the dual meaning of the white flowers themselves.
