Beautiful flower arrangements bring a lot of character to every home
We already listed the most popular flower, but I think we should also note the ones, which may not be the most popular, but are just as beautiful.
- Gladiolus – they are absolutely stunning. They might be a bit harder to come by, but they also come in different colours, so they will be a great addition to any decor. What’s more, they are quite tall, so even a small bouquet of gladiolus is sure to be noticed.
- Carnations – they also come in different colours and are very beautiful. When partnered with some floral fillings, they can create a breathtaking bouquet.
- Daisies – although they are quite simple and often overlooked, daisies are a great addition to any flower arrangement.
- Sunflowers – if you want to think of sunshine every time you look at your kitchen table centerpieces, then sunflowers is the way to go. Although, they are fall flowers, they can still be found in spring and are absolutely amazing to look at.
- Gerberas – they are very similar to the sunflower. Plus side – they come in different colours and are a great substitute for sunflowers.
