Spring flowers are blooming! Finally! After what I felt was a particularly long and cold winter filled with sick kiddos and dreary days, I’m sure I’m not the only one doing a happy dance. Warm weather just lifts your mood, sunshine and time spent outdoors makes you feel great. I am loving walking around my local neighbourhood and seeing all the beautiful spring flowers poking their way up in gardens just as eager as us to reach the warm sun. And the blossom! Bare winter tree branches suddenly filled with spring time blossom stops me in my tracks. Look around everyone, mother nature is showing her finest at the moment and it is gorgeous!
You may have noticed that we have also been refreshing our online shop and there is even a spring flower category now. It’s filled with all the gorgeous spring flowers that are now available including blossom, poppies, ranunculus, jonquils, bouvardia, anemones and soon everyone’s favourite peonies! So let’s feast on some gorgeous springtime floral inspiration.
Poppies and Anemones
This stunning bridal bouquet in spring peach and cream colours tones, features anemones and poppies framed in dusty miller. I love the combination of these two blooms as they have the same shape and centre, but the colour contrast gives great interest to the design.

Peach and cream tones work so well when lime green is added to give the florals a burst of colour and vibrancy. Here on-trend maidenhair ferns are combined with Queen Anne’s lace, ranunculus, and snapdragons in this bridal bouquet.
Peonies and David Austin Roses
After all the pruning that happens to roses over winter it is so lovely to see the David Austin roses becoming available again. Coupled with the greatly anticipated hero spring flower the peony in this pretty bouquet by Julie Stevens Design. The soft greys of the eucalyptus leaf and seeds adds texture and contrast to the design.
Often spring floral design features cascading carefree blooms, but it can also be really sweet and simple like this petite posy by Table Art of peonies and ranunculus.
A wedding reception where the tables were dripping in spring flower bowls full of colour and cascading blooms would look so pretty.
For your spring wedding reception why not use on-trend terrariums filled with your favourite spring pots of colours, like these cute little pansies.
Or ceramic punnets would look gorgeous potted with spring colour also and these would make adorable gifts for your wedding guests.
Spring Is Alive Outside
An amazing feature statement piece for your spring wedding could be a vintage bike with its basket overflowing with colourful garden blooms. This example by Tulipina Floral Design just shouts spring to me.
And finally we can’t talk about spring flowers and spring weddings without showing you a breath taking image of a spring garden setting. I think this image sets the scene for spring ceremonies!
So get outside and visit your local florist to see all the new spring flowers that are available. What is your favourite spring flower? I can’t choose there a just so many!
