How to incorporate flowers into the home this summer

When you are planning your interior décor scheme, one of the loveliest ways to brighten your home’s rooms is by incorporating flowers to give that extra bright touch to your spaces.

Floral decorations are not necessarily everyone’s taste but you can bring lots of vibrant color to your rooms by choosing carefully. For example, if your home is fairly minimalist in terms of its furnishings and fittings, you probably only need a few splashes of color to draw the eye. If you love all things floral, then you’ll be looking to add more than a splash and there are plenty of ways you can do this.

Coordinate your color scheme: Summer is the perfect time for bringing flowers into the home. Winter has been banished for another season, spring flowers have made their delightful appearances to signal the earth is warming up and the growing season is here, and now you have plenty of opportunities to bring the warmth of summer into your home.
The best way to start is to look at your rooms and what furniture and fittings you have, with a view to giving everything a makeover. A large space will easily take bold floral designs for re-covering sofas and chairs, matching the designs on drapes and scatter cushions.

As an alternative to drapes, you could look into installing wooden shutters. There is a huge range of shutters available, and if your windows are different shapes and sizes then you can get them made to measure. Shutters are ideal to help you control the amount of light that comes into rooms, and you can easily incorporate the flower theme by stenciling or simply painting some pretty flower pictures onto them.
Floor coverings and tableware: An attractive rug with flower motifs can instantly brighten up a room, so look out for ones that will match whatever you have decided to do with your floral theme. When looking for tableware, search for mats that have colorful flowers on them, and add a tablecloth to match. For smaller rooms, seek out delicate painted tableware and wineglasses that are engraved with bunches of grapes.

Cut flowers: There’s no better way to bring flowers into your home than by having cut flowers scattered around surfaces, in vases or other receptacles. They add a real sense of freshness to rooms, and are perfect for experimenting with a range of shapes and colors. If you want to make a bold statement then dahlias are ideal, and irises are arguably one of the most beautiful types of flower to display in all their myriad of colors.

Roses are always a favorite as cut flowers – they’re not just for Valentine’s Day! – and their color variations will allow you to mix and match to your heart’s content. Tulips, carnations, you can please yourself when it comes to the range of choice for cut flowers.
Bright and fresh: Flowers make a real difference to your home, whether from your garden or your local florist, so you can bring out the brightness and freshness of your interior décor.

Summer flowers are in season

Summer flowers are now in season

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and I have an announcement to make … it’s very important so I’d ask that you stop everything and pay close attention.

Are you ready?

“Hooray, it’s Summer!”

I know, you probably think I’m being silly but honestly, summer is such a great season. Warmer weather, long warm nights, people out walking after work and the flowers …

Oh, the flowers. The scents and sights that fill our store. Once the last customer goes home and without the front door opening and closing every moment, the aroma of all the flowers builds to a heady high.

I often find myself working a little later than usual finishing up some emails and paperwork simply because the aroma is intoxicating 🙂

But I digress.

Here’s a list of early summer flowers on Wikipedia. Of course, not all of these flowers will be available in all stores but none the less this list gives you a great idea where to start.

Please enquire if you’d like us to make a custom summer bouquet arranged just for you – we can do it.

And remember, you can checkout all our newest Summer Flowers online.

Until next time …

Say ‘Thank you’ this Summer with Flowers!

What a Treat in a Vase

It’s August 1st and summer is in full swing. To the kids’ dismay though, the summer months don’t equate to fun in the sun every single day. Has anyone else heard the words, “Mom, I’m bored. What are we going to do today?” The reality for many families over the summer months requires juggling of family time with childcare for at least part of the summer while parents are working. If you’re in a position of having a family member or close friend mind your kids while you’re at work this summer, you know you are fortunate indeed. A great way to thank a caregiver for their help in taking care of your children is to send her/him an unexpected summer fresh flower bouquet or arrangement!

Do you have someone to thank over the summer months? It may be Grandma and Grandpa, a sister, a dependable neighbor or even your child’s coach at camp. What better way to express appreciation than to have your child present that someone special with a beautiful summer flower arrangement?

If there is someone you’d like to thank this summer we know of no other act that means so much and elicits such great feelings as the simple act of sending flowers! Give Brant Florist a call and we’ll help you send ‘thank you’ flowers to your summertime angels.
