Summer; The Season of Flowers

At Mills Florist, we hope you’ve gotten all you can out the summer, as it will be done before you know it. Summer is the season of flowers, but everyone knows that. Given all the weddings, birthdays, family reunions, graduation parties, and more going on in these months, there are a lot of flowers being given as gifts and passed around like a conch around the campfire signaling that someone can speak. With flowers though, it’s giving someone the signal to embrace and appreciate beauty – and that’s something every one of us can use, regardless of what season it is; it just makes more sense in June, July, and August.

When was the last time you handed the beauty conch to family or friends? If you haven’t in a while, maybe you should – it’s karma and you will make someone’s day. Believe us when we say that flowers put a smile on every person’s face. It doesn’t have to be a holiday or a special occasion; it can simply be a nice gift. A wedding bouquet on a Wednesday? Sure, why not.

So, you going to do it? Get someone some flowers? Good – now you might be wondering what kind of flowers you should get. Well, according to this article about Heather Edgar of Evergreen Floral Co. in the Columbus Bride, there are a couple of trends going on in the floral industry that can guide your decision: Pinterest and going au naturale.

Edgar says, “Look to Pinterest for inspiration, especially when it comes to adding a little something extra to your bouquet” and “Go natural. To achieve a foraged look, which has recently been popular, try garden roses.” While looking to Pinterest to get ideas on what kind of flowers to give is akin to falling into a Stargate or some hungry black hole, it’s definitely worth a look; it shows that you stay up to date on trends – and when it comes to beauty, these trends change on a second by second basis.
