Blooming Beauties: Why I love Seasonal Flowers, and you might too!

As I walk through the door to my shop, I can't help but be captivated by the vibrant colours and delicate scents surrounding me. Flowers have a way of brightening up any space, bringing a touch of nature indoors.

I want to share with you why I choose to include the perfect seasonal flowers in my bouquets, and why I feel it can truly uplift your spirits having them around!

Embracing the Seasons

Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter – each season brings its first flowery signal of arrival with unique charm and an array of beauties that are just waiting to be admired. I believe the key to creating a stunning floral arrangement is to choose some blooms that are in season. Not only are seasonal flowers more budget-friendly, but they also generally last better and are more environmentally sustainable. As much as I can, I source flowers for 'florist's choice' bouquets locally and I really think it adds some magic, knowing the arrangements I create have been grown so close by.

Celebrating Spring

As the world awakens from its winter hybernation, spring blooms explodes in a riot of colours and for so many of us its a relieving sign that sunny crisp mornings are on the horizon. I think of tulips, daffodils, and my personal favourite flower - ranunculus – these cheerful flowers will bring a sense of renewal and freshness to any room as well as some glorious perfume. Place them in a pretty vase and what an instant mood lift.

Basking in the Summer Sunshine

Summer is the season of weddings, garden gatherings and holidays embracing the warmth (maybe not 2024 so far!), and I like my floral choices to reflect the festival around us. Sunflowers, dahlias, and zinnias are just a few of the many summer blooms that bring a burst of sunshine. Let me create a stunning bouquet for your next barbecue invite or bring a bit of the outdoors in with a vibrant bouquet for your kitchen side and you won't be disappointed.

Autumn Elegance

As the leaves change colour and the air turns crisp, it's time to embrace the rich hues of autumn flowers and leaves as you drive along noticing all the warmth and cosiness of deep oranges, yellows, purples and reds. Our UK seasonal blooms give off a comfy, inviting vibe that is perfect for gatherings or just to enjoy for yourself.

Winter Wonderland

When winter arrives, don't let the cold weather dampen your spirits. There's holly and ivy adorning your front door in a fresh wreath or more recently a wild looking sash but we must also embrace the season with the delicate inside beauty of winter flowers like poinsettias and amaryllis. These blooms bring a touch of elegant tradition to your holiday decor and create a festive ambiance in your home.

Bringing it All Together

Choosing seasonal flowers is not just about environmentally conscious gifting but also about creating an atmosphere that speaks to the soul. Whether you prefer the bright hues of a vibrant bouquet or chilled out dreamy tones of a pastel bouquet, there will be a perfect fit waiting for you at Village Green Blossoms. So, the next time you feel like adding a touch of nature to your surroundings, or sending some love to your nearest and dearest, remember to look to the seasons for inspiration, give a nod to what our local surroundings can grow.

As I leave the shop with a beautiful bouquet of fresh seasonal flowers in hand ready to deliver, I can't help but smile. It's amazing how something so simple can bring so much joy and beauty into our lives.

Incorporating local flowers into a bouquet or arrangement is a delightful way to embrace the beauty of each season! For me, for you and for all the heartfelt reasons we show love and the kindest thoughts to each other in flower form!
