English Garden Style Fresh Flower Arrangements
Our clients have spoken, and their all-time favourite fresh flower arrangement is our Lush Pastel English Garden Vase Arrangement (F18).
This popular flower arrangement is custom made by our designer. It is composed of a beautiful collection of English Garden flowers that include peach roses, green and white hydrangeas, ranunculus, lisianthus, spray roses and tweedias set in a clear cylinder vase, carefully made with the best fresh flowers available in the market.
Since this style is so popular, let's learn a bit about what gives English Garden flower arrangements their characteristics.
English Garden flower arrangements are inspired by the cottage gardens people used to have in their backyards, to produce fresh herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers. Traditionally grown for domestic use in the kitchen, cosmetic and medicinal purposes, these gardens went by many names, which includes "kitchen gardens," "cutting gardens," and "English gardens."
Lush, beautiful, lovely, simple, elegant and charming are some of the adjectives people most use to describe English Garden fresh flower arrangements, and they really are all that! The whole concept of this style is to create loosely structured round or oval arrangements of a variety of garden flowers that bloom together, mimicking the aesthetics of lovely English cottage gardens.
Elements of an English Garden flower arrangement
The most popular flowers in a modern English Garden fresh flower arrangement are:
- Spike flowers - larkspur, delphinium, foxglove, hollyhock, and snapdragon.
- Mass flowers - tulips, snowballs, marigolds, sweet peas, geraniums, stock, aster, daisies, lilies, poppies, cornflowers, all kinds of roses and carnations, lavender, dahlias, ranunculus, anemones, and agapanthus.
- Foliage - euonymus, pittosporum, camellia, huckleberry, boxwood and blackberry.
One of the essential traits of this type of arrangement is that all flowers must bloom in the same season. Another important factor in creating a proper English Garden fresh flower arrangement is flower compatibility - this style's aesthetics demands for flowers and herbs that would seem to be grown in a home garden in the English countryside.
In terms of its characteristics, English Garden fresh flower arrangements are usually crafted with lush foliage, like evergreens and ivies (weeping or trailing) in full arrangements that are habitually round or oval and placed in a glass or sturdy container.
Bright or pastel colours can be the colour palette for the English Garden fresh flower arrangements in the modern renditions of the style.
