Summer Cottage Flowers

Interior Cottage Flower Inspiration

Every season has us looking forward to the unique flowers and plants that it brings. This mid-summer heat wave, has us longing for a cottage to relax and cool off at. This week, we are looking at lake house and cottage interiors and their use of flowers. (Of course, we’re using Pinterest for our inspiration).


Carnations_any_colour_Brant_FloristCarnations come in virtually every colour and are an inexpensive way to add colour to a more neutral room.

Our Inspiration:


These flowers can add elegance to any room, while accenting and complimenting the rustic nature of a cottage or lake house. The perfect addition to any room.

White Lilies


White lilies are the perfect summer flower with their light floral scent and classy white and green arrangement.

Our Inspiration:

Even with an all-white room, white lilies are right at home, complimenting the rustic browns in the floor and walls.


White_Orchid_Brant_FloristOrchids are simple and beautiful. They also come in many different colours, and you can add them to any room in the cottage.

Our inspiration:


Whether it’s the bathroom, bedroom, living room or sunroom, there’s no place that orchids can’t go. And they’re small enough to fit in tight places!

If you’re heading to a cottage or lake house this weekend, don’t go empty handed! Whether for your own summer home or for your host, you cannot go wrong with fresh flowers to compliment that feeling of being at the cottage.

If you’re not going to make it to a cottage this summer, bring the cottage to your home! You can view these flower inspiration ideas and so many more on our Pinterest page and on our summer flowers page.

Creating Spring Bouquets

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and it being April, thoughts of spring are on everyone’s minds. We think about floral arrangements that epitomize spring, thus including a lot of the flowers we normally associate with this season of renewal. Daisies, carnations, lilies, blushing roses, and colour splashes of lavender, yellow, green, and more green are on our minds.

I enjoy the late spring for one reason: the variety of flowers available for arranging is enormous. While there are always a lot of choices to go with at any time of year, the late spring seems to have everything all at once.


The cheery, rainbow of colours and the blooms from round to star shaped are endless. Bouquets range from round to tall to cascading to wide and flat. Some flowers want to be heaped in, others to be stacked, and still others to be criss-crossed for best effect. Combining them is endlessly fun to create new menageries of display.

Don’t even get me started on gift baskets.

Until next time,

Ken Bolt
