Winter Flowers | Gorgeous Ideas for Holiday Decorating
The ground may be frozen, and your garden covered with a dusting of snow, but there’s no better way to beat the winter blahs than adding some fresh floral fun to your home. The mixture of seasonal greens and florals available in the winter months can be stunning and we’ve created a guide to help you create the perfect whimsical winter arrangement.
Greens are the base of any arrangement. Use fresh, in season greens that will accentuate your arrangement and add texture and dimension. Greens are budget-friendly and often grown regionally or can be foraged in your own backyard! A great tip is to cut some trimmings from your tree when you’re putting it up, these act as a great base.
Eucalyptus is easily recognizable and readily available in floral shops. It’s flexible and tall allowing you to create height and shape.
Dusty Miller is a timeless staple. The silvery-gray lacy leaves are perfect for adding texture.
The loose and flowy nature of cedar adds whimsy to a low arrangement.
The tiny pine cones on these branches make the arrangement feel more festive.
Winter doesn’t have the best variety when it comes to finding seasonal florals but there are still some stunning options. The tendency when creating a winter arrangement can be to lean towards festive whites and creams. As with greens, regionally grown florals will be the best for your budget. Although most florals are readily available all year, you’ll have to pay a pretty penny for them. These florals are great winter arrangement options.
Delicate with oval shaped pedals and a dark round centre, these flowers are a beautiful addition to almost any arrangement.
You can’t go wrong with ranunculus, their blossoms are almost too perfect.
Full and lush, peonies are beautiful on their own and a stunning addition to a romantic arrangement.
Tulips are a classic and versatile flower that are lovely any time of the year.
A striking flower, amaryllis is readily available in the winter months.
When it comes to arrangements, here are some great ideas that are elegant but effortless.

ADD A POP OF COLOUR
Although an elegant all white winter arrangement feels right for the season, don’t be afraid to stray from the typical color palette and add a pop of colour to brighten up these dark days.

Consider the vase when out shopping for your flowers. Use a taller vase for looser stems and arrangements and a lower vase when you want to keep your florals dense or flowy.
Tall vases are great when you’re incorporating branches. They also allow you to play with height and layers. Make a dramatic statement by placing a tall arrangement on a sideboard in your dining room.
