Spring will burst forth with a flurry of color and all the variety of an English garden. Tulips, iris, hyacinth, freesia, lisianthus, ranunculus and asters are just some of the season's best. Fashionable designs may include simple clusters with just one type of bloom, compact nosegays with an abundance of varied blossoms and tall vased bouquets with stylish blooming branches. Traditional pastels will be back, with a decidedly feminine flair, but don't be surprised by occasional accents in bright fashion colors.
Gerbera daisies are a wonderful choice for adding whimsy and fun to a shower or birthday party. These sweet, festive stems come in every color imaginable from primary to pastel and cost very little compared with many other flowers. They are also almost always in season and a favorite with many local growers. Talk about a great look for a great price! And, if you can only afford a few of the flowers you love, why not choose to fill things in a bit with lush greens, baby's breath or carnations in the same color? You'll achieve the look you want at a fraction of the cost.
