A bouquet of freshly cut beautiful flowers is a great way to bring a smile to someone’s face and make them feel extra special and thought of on their special day. The best thing about bouquets of fresh flowers is that they go with any occasion, be it birthdays, weddings, graduation, or promotion, they always make a beautiful and thoughtful personalized gift.
Here’s a list of some of our favourite flowers that make great bouquets, because of their beautiful appearance, their ability to stay fresh for long times, and also for their long-lasting fragrances, even after they are cut.
Rose is known as the queen of the flowers. With their enchanting beauty and bewitching fragrance, they are just unmatchable. They come in many different colours, so it’s easy to make a bouquet with the best of the flowers and also get it personalized in the colours of your choice and the person you want to gift them to. Red roses especially look the best, and even better when they are arranged with ferns and baby breath flowers in a bouquet.
Carnations are another very popular choice when it comes to fresh-cut flower bouquets. Their blooms are very attractive and eye-catching, and the frilly appearance of their petals gives them a unique and alluring look. They also come in many different colours and shades, and their blooms complement other flowers as well. They can live for up to 2-3 weeks if transferred to the water.
Orchids are great to pair with other flowers in bouquet arrangements because of their elegant looks. Their long stems compliment other blooms and make any bouquet look more appealing to the eye. They also come in many different colours, but the most popular variations are whites and pinks. They can live up to 2-3 weeks if taken care of properly.
Lilies are a popular choice too for freshly cut flower bouquets, because of their large bloom size and charismatic appearance. They add an elegant touch to flower bouquets and go well with other blooms. They come in many colours and variations, as they are widely hybridized, but the most popular varieties are pinks, purples, and whites as they work well to complement brighter coloured flowers. If taken care of properly, they can survive for up to 10-14 days.
Tulips are such beautiful flowers, they look so amazing and appealing to the eyes. Their blooms have a unique bulb-like appearance. You can always have them arranged with other flowers but they look good on their own too in a bouquet. They also come in a huge variety of colours, so you can never run out of colour choices for your bouquet. However, they have a short life and are only able to survive for a few days after they are cut.
So, have you decided on which of these flowers you will be including in your next bouquet to pleasantly surprise your loved ones on their special day? They will be sure to appreciate this thoughtful gift and the beautiful gift of a fresh flower bouquet. Don’t forget to pair the bouquet with a cake to double up the joy.
