It’s no surprise that we look at summer a little differently here in Miami – the term endless summer may have been coined just for us! Given that we experience warm temperatures year-round, and gorgeous weather no matter what time of year – summer is our perpetual, sunny reality. But with snowbirds at home and the kids on vacation, there is no denying that these months are special and have their unique vibe. Summer may be endless in Miami – but we love every minute of it.
If you have invited family and friends over to the back deck for some cool drinks to beat the heat, summer flowers can provide a refreshing atmosphere and gorgeous accent to your gathering. Summer blooms are colorful, bright, and full of personality. For instance, we love this designer arrangement created by our professional florists. Blue hydrangeas provide a cool platform reminiscent of blue skies and blue water – while orange roses and yellow alstroemeria exude all the sunshine of a summer day, providing dramatic contrast.
For a casual summer bouquet, there is no choice that can surpass the iconic sunflower. This happy flower is an ambassador of Floridian sunshine and beauty; adding ruscus and greenery provides the lush foliage of the season. Presented in a country mason jar, these rustic flowers fit equally well on your kitchen table or out on the patio set. These will also make a lovely hostess gift if you are going to someone’s else home for a summer evening. Other flowers you may wish to consider for the summer season are daisies, zinnias and begonias, as well as gladioli, hydrangea, petunias, periwinkle, and snapdragons – all available in bright colors perfect for the heat of a Miami summer.
Whatever your occasion, trust the expert floral designers at Trias Flowers to provide the perfect ambiance of summer.
