Few things express the joys of summer like a gorgeous bouquet of bright, bold flowers. If you’re planning a picnic – whether it is an intimate repast for two or a large gathering of friends and family – the right flowers will add a lively, festive touch. Nanz & Kraft Florists is happy to recommend some dazzling summer blooms that are sure to set the mood at your next outing!
Be Dashing with Daisies
Delicate daisies are the perfect accent for any summertime activity. Available in white, yellow and pink, daisies are a symbol for purity and encouragement. The name of this flower came from a combination of the words “day’s eye” because daisy buds will only open during the daytime. In years past, these dainty little flowers were also known as “thunderflowers” because they bloomed most often during the summer thunderstorm season.
If you want to add yet more color to your picnic, gerbera daisies are the way to go. Gerbera daisies are available in a range of colors, from soft pastel shades to bright pinks, yellows and oranges or even rich, dark shades of red. With so many pretty colors, Nanz & Kraft can create a striking gerbera daisy arrangement just for you!
Fun in the Sunflowers
Nothing says summer like the traditional image of a field of sunflowers, heavy blooms nodding in the warm breeze. Bring a taste of sun-kissed fields to your picnic with an arrangement of these radiant flowers. Cheerful sunflowers have long been associated with loyalty and adoration because of the way the blooms turn to follow the sun throughout the day.
Of course, if you’d like to throw a little more color into your sunflower mix, Nanz & Kraft has several options that blend sunflowers with the other shades of summer. Try a mixed arrangement of purple and pink flowers with a sunflower as the focal point, or enjoy a blend of sunflowers, gerbera daisies and small accent flowers in this “Summer Garden” arrangement.
The Versatile Rose
Roses are listed as the traditional flower for many holidays and seasons, but that is because these remarkable flowers come in an endless array of colors and styles. In the summer, look for warm orange roses, creamy shades of pink or bright yellow.
For something a little different, try a mix of lilies and roses. Dazzling yellow lilies mix with orange roses, colorful mums and daisies to create this cheerful “Summertime Splash” arrangement, while our “Just Happy” bouquet mixes bright orange lilies with creamy orange roses and hot pink daisies.
Daisies, sunflowers and roses are the most popular summer flowers, but there are many more varieties that can bring beauty to your picnic. Let Nanz & Kraft Florists help you choose the perfect flowers for your outdoor event!
