Flower Guide by Violet and Verde

Roses, Ranunculus and Dahlias oh my! Thanks to the wonderful talents of Violet and Verde, today’s flower guide is teeming with not one, but four flower arrangements. Charlie Juliet did a great job at capturing all of these beautiful blooms in a variety of hues!

From the floral designer, Bridget: I chose each to be a little different from each other. This time of year, dahlias are in season and a great, affordable option. They come in a variety of colors and I think they are a really fun flower. I used them in three of the arrangements in four different varieties.

For the lavender arrangement, I really wanted to create a soft, romantic look that was more monochromatic. I really love adding herbs to arrangements, so the flowering oregano was a lovely accent to the soft blooms.

I loved the bi-color dahlia mixed with the solid purple dahlias in the bouquet. I wanted it to be a little untamed looking so the fern, jasmine, and ranunculus created a whimsical addition with their curled stems.

The Japanese anemone was my inspiration for the pink and yellow arrangement. It’s a petite pink flower with a yellow center similar to a daisy and I love how it just pops it’s head out of this arrangement. I used other pink and yellow blooms and several different foliage varieties to create more texture and compliment the anemone.

I think the black dahlia created a nice contrast to the soft hydrangea and the protea is just a fun, different flower often overlooked as it isn’t a traditional romantic flower, but it really works in this arrangement.
