It’s Tuesday! Today Nancy Liu Chin is giving a few tips about year-round flowers…
Brides are always asking what flowers will be available when they get married. It’s a great question, so here’s a list of my favorite All Year Round flowers. Hopefully this will make your wedding planning so much easier.
Carnations: available in wide range of colors. A favorite color includes ‘Moonvista’ which is a deep purple.
Delphiniums: available in white, blues and purples, but it’s the rare Hybrid mauve that’s fantastic.
Freesia: available in many colors, ‘Lewyna’ is a beautiful shade of pink.
Gladiolas: typically line flowers but when you wire the florets, they take on a complete different look. ‘Emerald Isle’ which is a bright citrus green is one of my favs.
Iris: available in white, yellow, blues and purples. ‘Apollo’ is a yellow bloom with inner white petals. It’s beautiful
Mums: come in many forms but the buttons (aka ‘pom pom’) Mums are so versatile.
Oriental Lilies: available in white, yellow, pink and red. ‘Concador’ is a yellow lily that’s quite lovely and rarely used.
Peruvian Lilies: available in many colors. ‘Mayfair’ is a light lavender with purple…it’s a new variety.
Roses (hot house): available in many colors. Very versatile and they come in different lengths.
Cut Orchids: many varieties and range of colors.
This gorgeous wedding features white carnation centerpieces along with white roses.
