Hope you like the example we provided here!

2014 Philadelphia Flower Show

This year’s Philadelphia Flower Show was a big success again! With ARTiculture being the title of the show, there were so many stunning art inspired floral and garden designs. From Calder inspired entrance installation to Kandinsky-like arrangements, the Show exhibited great creativity from floral and landscape designers. I am sure you’d agree with me if you had a chance to visit the show this year.

Spring Flower Arrangements

Now that the winter holidays are coming to an end, it’s time to start thinking about the colors and smells of spring! Spring is a time for blooming, growth, and dazzling floral arrangements. From pink and coral to green and purple, the flower arrangements coming this spring are sure to be real eye pleasers.

Elegant flowers will soon be surrounding us for the upcoming holidays – Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, and then soon after it’s wedding season. The options become quite interesting come spring, with bright daffodils, lovely scented lilacs, and gorgeous tulips. There will definitely be plenty of unique arrangements and colors coming up this season!

The ombre trend has moved to the flower world! Expect to see arrangements playing with ombre styles using different shades of lilacs, roses, and practically any other colorful flowers. Fading from light to dark, the flowers blend into a truly beautiful art display.

Green will finally take the reins this spring, with green flowers popping up in arrangements, perhaps complimented with nice purple peonies or orchids. For those who prefer green leaves, long grass and thin dangling leaves can turn almost any arrangement into a whole, naturalized piece.

We’ll certainly see a lot of candy-colored arrangements when spring arrives as well. The peaches, corals, and pinks look beautiful in a simple white or black vase, and complement each other nicely.

Spring is the perfect time for up-cycling and there’s not much better than a homemade vase. Flowers can be placed in anything from old jars to teapots or watering cans. A quick paint job to almost anything makes a quick holder for the many beautiful varieties of spring flowers.

This season will be full of all kinds of surprises as the flowers bloom!

Beautiful Curcuma Flowers

In recent years, turmeric has become popular for its anti-inflammatory property. You can easily find turmeric supplement in a health food store, but do you know its flowers are this pretty? Turmeric plants, which belong to genus Curcuma, are in the ginger family. They typically bloom in summer time. The flowers come in green, white, and different shades of pink. We combined the light pink Curcuma flowers with Celosia (cock’s comb) and yellow Mokara orchids. Enjoy the Curcuma flowers while they are available!

How About Some Onion This Time?

When you see these beautiful globular clusters of flowers, can you imagine they are closely related to onion and garlic? These Allium flowers come out in late spring and summer. Some species grow up to more than 4′ tall with flower heads more than 7″ in diameter. They are magnificent to look at, but be aware of the smell of some of them. They are in the same family of garlic and onion after all.

Artichoke? Yum!

Artichokes, if left unharvested, form beautiful purple flowers. Peak artichoke season is spring, so it doesn’t surprise us that starting from June we have been seeing a lot of very full, very beautiful artichoke flowers.

Yesterday we created a purple arrangement with limonium (common name: statice) and artichoke flowers. We love the different textures together. Look at these big artichoke flowers, aren’t they just yummy?

Pineapple, Air Plant and Our Arrangement

So what do they have in common? After some research, we found out these plants all belong to the big Family of Bromeliaceae!

We bought some fascinating cut flowers the other day for a flower arrangement. The wholesaler told us the name of the flower was “Bromeliads”. Thanks to Google and Wikipedia, we learned that Bromeliaceae is a plant family of about 3,170 species. Most of them are from tropical or sub-tropical Americas and west Africa with the smallest plant being the Spanish Moss. Even though they are from the same family, please don’t think you can grow a pineapple plant like an air plant!

For A Sunny Day

What better flowers to use on a hot Summer day than these bright yellow sunflowers? We combined them with some reddish orange roses, mokara orchids, philodendron and calathea leaves for a client’s office. This arrangement surely brightened up their space.
