Happy Friday, everyone and can I just say—what a beautiful day to kick off the Memorial Day weekend! Its going to be wonderful outside so I hope you all get a chance to get out and enjoy it! Today for Friday Florals we bring you a flower that is just perfect on a day like this and truly such a symbol of summer. Yes, I am talking about the classic Sunflower! With bright yellow petals and a vibrant green stem, it almost automatically brings visions of gorgeous blue lakes and relaxing summer walks into my mind.
The Sunflower may be a very well known flower, but I don’t believe it gets as much love in the wedding world as it should. Especially for all those summer and early fall ceremonies, sunflowers can be an easy way to bring life and instant color to your world. Take a look at some of these ideas to see what I’m talking about!
Of course, the first thought on how to implement sunflowers in your wedding would be bouquets. Bride and bridesmaids alike can carry eye-catching bouquets that is sure to have the focus on them as they make their entrance.
But don’t stop at just the bouquets! Sunflowers are very suitable for boutonnieres and cakes as well! Boutonnieres will add a splash of color and fun to a black-suited groom and will give the cake just the right amount of floral influence. Or better yet, check out these sunflower cupcakes! How fun!
Sunflowers make for a picturesque wedding, like the ones you used to imagine when you were younger fantasizing about your perfect summer ceremony (Or was that just me?) And don’t think that these flowers are just for the Coachella lovin’ crowd—sunflowers can be used in themes from classic to chic, romantic to boho and more. With the right décor, they are a very adaptable flower.
Not quite so keen on yellow and think sunflowers are totally out? Not to worry, my dear, because sunflowers naturally come in shades of reds and oranges as well! So you can still have the classic appeal with your ideal colors.
Sunflowers are one of my favorites because of their timeless look and their vibrant attributes. And really, I don’t know anyone who can’t help but smile as they look at one. Add in that sunflowers are very reasonably priced and they rocket to the top of my list!
All this talk of sunflowers is getting me pretty anxious to enjoy some summer hikes and beautiful weather! Speaking of, lets all get out and bask in this 80 degrees Denver is currently experiencing. Have a great weekend, all!
