Winter bouquet flowers
Winter, even though it’s the coldest season in the year, still offers plenty of beautiful and aromatic blooms that can be a part of stunning floral arrangements. The use of seasonal plants is not only sustainable but also a more affordable option. Which winter bouquet flowers are the most popular nowadays?
Focus on Birth Month Flowers
When talking about a winter flowers bouquet, we have to include birth flowers, which are correlated with winter months. Not only are these blooms in season, but they also have an additional meaning if you use them on the right date. The main December flower is narcissus, a beautiful white bloom that has a trumpet-like centre. It symbolises hope, sweetness, wealth, and good fortune. December is also commonly linked with holly, a shrub most often used in hedges. However, around the holidays, it also becomes a symbol of protection and part of many festive winter flowers bouquets.
Bloom recommended for January floral arrangements is Carnation, a gorgeous flower that is available in many shades of pink, red and white. It represents feelings of love, admiration and distinction, which means it will be an excellent choice for the celebration of personal or professional successes of your loved ones, such as promotions or housewarming parties. Because Carnation blooms in wintertime, it’s a fresh and seasonal favourite for various floral arrangements. February, the last month of winter, is associated with Violet, a highly aromatic bloom that can thrive even in harsh conditions. Sounds like a superb flower for midwinter, right? On top of that, it symbolises courage, loyalty, virtue, wisdom, faith and thoughtfulness.
