Winter is the season for icy colors and soft palettes. But, it’s also the perfect time to introduce hints of color, whether romantic hues or bold colors.

Bouquets are often filled with white flowers (roses, peonies, anemones) with natural elements (succulents, astilbe, baby’s breath, lamb’s ear, tallow berries).

And, sometimes, they feature those bold colors, like red roses, ranunculas, calla lilies, hypericum berries and chrysanthemums.

When picking flowers for your winter bouquet, be sure to work with your florist to find flowers that are in season.  This guarantees a fresher product at a relatively decent price. Use colors that best fit with your overall look and feel. And, don’t be afraid to use rich colors like reds and plums.

  1. I can’t get over how much I love soft pink tones in winter. Maybe because it’s so counterintuitive (it seems like red or white are the winter norms here) but that bottom picture is just stunning.

  2. I can’t pick which I like more–the soft white or the hint of bold color. They’re all so beautiful! I do know that I love the use of natural elements–greenery, lamb’s ear, hypericum berries. It adds such a great texture. Great winter bouquet picks, Brit! 🙂
