Heat Up Early Summer With Flowers

The Flower Bucket knows, we’re still in the midst of spring. But there’s no reason not to peek ahead at what summer has in store for us, flower-wise. After all, we get to fantasize about lazy days by the pool and grilling out with our friends—why can’t we dream about the bright, bold florals coming our way during the hottest season? This is a chance to dress up our tables (even the ones on the porch, patio or by the pool) with flowers that capture the spicy vibe of summer, and we’re here for it.

Our aptly-named Beat the Heat shows us how it’s done. Here, orange and yellow roses flare up over pin cushion protea, a flower with attitude. These statement blooms bring a lot of character and energy to the overall design, which includes berries at the base to soften the overall look. The container is kept simple, given that this is such a dynamic piece. Imagine this complementing the blue of your pool, or lending its zest to your dining room table. The color scheme packs so much punch, there will be no doubt as to where your head is at, seasonally-speaking.

Welcome summer with a floral design that speaks to its upbeat, energetic spirit.
