Statement Flowers That Steal the Spotlight

In every bouquet, arrangement, and centerpiece, statement flowers are the beating heart, drawing the eye to their natural beauty. One popular fall option is dahlias, which have layers of dramatic petals that create stunning geometric patterns. They bring elegance to any floral design, notably bridal bouquets. Also boasting layers of delicate, paper-thin petals, ranunculus adds romance to fall arrangements. These versatile flowers work well in classic and whimsical styles and pair beautifully with other fall blooms.

Incorporate gerbera daisies into your floral designs for a burst of vibrant colour. Their bold blooms add a lively and playful element, perfect for creating an inviting atmosphere. Gerbera daisies can also be a focal point in corsages or boutonnieres. Often underestimated, carnations have experienced a resurgence in popularity. They bring texture and volume to floral arrangements and are an excellent choice for large-scale events where you want to make a statement with dramatic floral installations.

Accent Flowers That Complete the Arrangement

No floral arrangement is complete without accent flowers, which are so much more than “filler.” They harmonize with the statement blooms and add sophistication and style, completing the design’s overall look. Known for their resilience and longevity, alstroemeria have multiple blooms and add color and flow to arrangements. Alstroemeria’s durability makes them an excellent choice for events that require long-lasting beauty.

If you want a delicate look, incorporate spray roses into your arrangements. With multiple small blooms on a single stem, spray roses add daintiness and bohemian energy. They are complementary elements in bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. With their tall spires and unique blossoms, snapdragons add height and drama to bouquets and centerpieces. They create visual interest without taking the spotlight away from the statement bloom.

Flower Color Combinations that Complement Burgundy

In addition to using burgundy flowers, color palettes that embrace autumnal energy highlight the beauty of burgundy blooms. Create a soft and romantic ambiance by combining them with cream and blush tones. This palette is perfect for weddings that embrace a dreamy and romantic aesthetic. Use dahlias, snapdragons, and spray roses in these shades to craft bouquets and centerpieces that have a timeless elegance. Pair burgundy with jewel tones such as deep amethyst and emerald green for a more dramatic and vibrant look. This bold color combination adds richness and sophistication to your floral arrangements. Consider using gerbera daisies, ranunculus, and alstroemeria in these tones to create contrast.
