Fresh Ideas for Winter Favorites

As Thanksgiving draws nearer and nearer, I know that (like every year) winter will be here sooner than I know it. In preparation for that, I put together a little roundup of some wintry flowers and greenery! These are mostly pretty classic choices, though I tried to gather up some unexpected and non-traditional examples to keep things fresh. Scroll on to check it out…

 

First up is Cedar–of any kind! (We carry Florida Cedar, Carolina Sapphire, Blue Berry Cedar, among others). Fragrant and seasonal, no other greenery variety evokes the feeling of winter quite like Cedar does.

Resembling tiny snowballs, Brunia Balls are a contemporary staple for winter floral design (though they are actually available year-round). Their neutral silvery-gray hue is a nice complement for almost any color, but pairs particularly well with crisp white and soft sage green for winter wedding arrangements.

Though you may mostly picture wreaths made of pine or cedar, there are tons of other materials that they can be made of! Try a wreath made of fresh, aromatic herbs like Bay Leaf or Rosemary, or this deep cranberry-hued Red Dogwood wreath. And check out that hanging wreath “chandelier” (though up by the brilliant decorating minds at Martha Stewart, of course!)

Amaryllis is another classic holiday staple, known for its large, show-stopping blooms. They make excellent focal flowers for bouquets, but can totally hold their own as centerpieces without any other filler or greenery necessary!
