Perfect Winter Filler Flowers For Weddings, At Home, And Everywhere Else
Want to jazz up your bouquet? A little contrast or complementary blossoms, some extra body or rounding out the bouquet’s shape—these are often the finishing touches a professional florist puts on a masterful piece of floral art. Check out some of Todich Floral Design’s favorite filler flowers for the winter and holiday season:
Seasonal Winter Plants
Gypsophila, Hypericum, Limonium, Queen Anne’s Lace and Solidago
Plants that act as filler for winter bouquets can be found growing in the wild. But just in case you live in a big city, or maybe find yourself a little too busy for a trip to the countryside, you are probably okay to pay a visit to your local florist. They are great for special events, parties and as wedding flowers, and grow both year round and in-season.
Queen Anne’s Lace and gypsophila are plants with many tiny white flowers, playing with lighter hues and angelic, clean composition in their fragrance to grace and round out your bouquet.
Long stem limoniums and asters add their purple and lavender spark to any flower arrangement, while solidago and hypericum brandish yellow, orange and gold hues, hinting (and hoping for) the springtime season to come.
Frosty And Fun Winter Filler
Seeded Eucalyptus, Lamb’s Ear, Dusty Miller Plant
How do some florists give their bouquets that perfect wintry touch? It’s a sort of frosty, icebound effect which absolutely evokes the season. By creating contrast, you can enhance the bright whites in your bouquet and bring out the colours in other blossoms.
Seeded eucalyptus, Lamb’s ear and dusty miller plant are fabulous filler flowers that have a natural silvery grey and pale green cast to them to help you pull off this effect.
Give A Christmas Feel To Your Flower Arrangements
Holly, Pinecones, Evergreens, Poinsettias with Roses, Tulips and Lilies
Don’t forget about time-old favorites! Shiny green holly leaves (with their red berries), pinecones and evergreens are classic and easy ways to decorate for the holiday season, as are potted poinsettia plants. These plants aren’t just for Christmas wreathes, but also go well in arrangements with flowers like roses, tulips and lilies in traditional colours of red and white.
Aromatic Herbs, Spices And Plants For Your Arrangement
Flat Cedar, Cedar Boughs, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Clove
Since flowers offer such a grandiose visual feast, sometimes it is easy to forget that they can also offer us a full array of stimulation. Smell, of course, is the second sense (or even the first sometimes) that comes to mind when we think of flowers.
Flat cedar, cedar boughs, pine branches and clippings from other types of evergreens can bring out a deliciously woody aroma and piney scent to complement your Christmas bouquet or holiday flower arrangement.
Rosemary, a symbol of the Christmas tree itself, is another way to deepen the experience of your flower bouquets. This slightly sweet herb may also be enjoyed as a holiday decoration, arranged with pinecones over your mantelpiece or simply by laying it out along the windowsill.
