The Most Versatile Flowers for Summer Events

Summer is fast approaching! The warm weather and radiant sun is a reminder to clients that it’s time to get rolling on any summer events they have up their sleeves. You’ll be getting requests to plan summer events very soon if you don’t have some lined up already!

With any event, there’s a lot of planning involved and choosing flowers is just one part of it. However, when you consider that the Society of American Florists reports the US floral industry is worth over $25 billion dollars, you can see just how important flowers are!

To help you select flowers for your summer floral arrangements we’ve prepared a list of the most versatile choices. This will guide you towards flowers that are widely available and come in a range of colors to suit all kinds of event themes and color schemes!


Gerbera Diasies for Summer Events

Gerbera daisies are popular for weddings but also a great choice for more casual summer events. You can get daisies in a wide-range of colors such as:




Roses for Wedding Events

Roses are a wedding standard because they are a complex, ornamental flower. Roses mix well with other flowers so are ideal for building bouquets and centerpieces. They come in a wide-range of shades and each shade carries a special meaning, so you can select a color that matches either the color scheme or the theme of the event!




Tulips for Summer Events

Tulips have a simple elegance to them which makes them versatile for all types of summer events. Similar to roses, tulips come in a range of shades that have meanings associated to them which makes them ideal for customization! You can either match the color scheme or the theme, whichever you prefer!




Hydrangeas for Party Souvenirs

Hydrangeas are versatile because they look great both fresh and dried. Since they preserve well they are a great option if you’re having an event where you want to preserve the flowers for souvenirs or memories. Their natural range of color is limited to blue, pink, light green and white but you can get them tinted or sprayed to match any color scheme.



Of course, your options for flowers in the summer months are endless but narrowing the playing field to the most versatile choices may keep you from getting overwhelmed! You can easily create summer floral arrangements customized to each event’s particular colors or theme with the flowers listed above.
