Floral Inspiration

When it comes to floral inspiration, I’m as picky as they come. I’m tired of “everyday” flowers. I DON’T want ordinary roses, calla lilies, orchids, lilies, daisies, sunflowers, freesias, or hydrangeas.

I DO like garden roses, david austen roses, white peonies, ranunculus, white scabiosa, white anemones, white or blush pink cafe ole dahlias, and lavender. For accent, dusty miller leaves.

I know florists often tell their clients to choose a color palette and leave the rest to them. But I’ve just seen so many of the same tired flowers. I need something you can’t find in your local grocer. I need something not sold at 1800flowers.com. I don’t need to be overly unique, I just want something refreshing from the everyday and ordinary. I don’t need something over the top, but something gorgeous and romantic.
