If you know me, one thing I enjoy most about the spring and summer is stocking our home with fresh flowers. My favorites include hydrangeas (obviously), peonies, tulips, and plenty of sunflowers. This past weekend while perusing Whole Foods I couldn’t help but notice the yellow snapdragons. Rarely do I ever venture out of my hydrangea comfort zone, so I decided to get a little creative and do something different.
I put together this bouquet with some of the fullest hydrangeas I’ve ever seen and these yellow snapdragons. There is so much variety to choose from! You could replace the snapdragons with colorful gladiolus and even the hydrangeas with peonies or sunflowers pending the time of the season. As colorful as these blooms are, think of all the options for even special events. Between bridal showers, baby showers, or birthday parties, you could also change the colors to match the event. A few of my favorites include this ceramic vase, this white one, of course this Juliska vase. I even added white stone rocks as the bottom for an extra special touch.
Not only do fresh flowers brighten up a room, they often make the home feel more spacious and inviting. What are some of your favorite summer blooms?
