June 21st is the day spring officially turns into summer. It’s time to put away the pastel shades in favor of blazing, bold summer colors. Summertime makes you think of barbeques, beaches and fun in the sun. To bring these themes indoors, you will want to decorate your home with flowers that come in bright pinks, deep purples, hot reds and sunny yellows. Here are some of the best summer flowers to display in your home.
Nothing Says Sun Like Sunflowers
As sunflowers grow, the huge blooms turn to face the sun – hence the name “sunflower.” They are a great choice to bring a touch of joy into your home. Place them in an area that needs a little cheer, like the office or as a centerpiece in your dining room. The best part about sunflowers is that once the blooms fade, you can hang the seed heads up outside as a tasty treat for wild birds. Try a mixed bouquet of sunflowers and other summer flowers to bring summertime fun indoors.
Be Daring with Gerbera Daisies
Unlike traditional Shasta daisies, gerbera daises come in a rainbow of brilliant colors. These large flowers resemble small sunflowers but they come in many more colors, including pink, white, red, peach and purple. Because they are related to regular daisies, they symbolize purity and innocence. However, the myriad bright colors of these flowers mean that they also represent good cheer. Gerbera daisies look outstanding when placed in a sunny window. You can also put them in your foyer or entryway to give your guests a warm welcome.
Roses: The Ultimate Summer Flower
Most people associate roses with romance and Valentine’s Day, but roses are the true summer flower. No other flower can bring so many dazzling colors into your home. With hundreds of shades of yellow, orange, pink and purple, roses are the perfect way to add a splash of color to your living space. Place a bouquet in front of an open window, and let the summer breeze fill your home with the sweet scent of roses.
With summer fast approaching, treat yourself or someone you love to a bouquet of beautiful summer flowers. Flowers are the best way to bring some of that outdoor summer fun into your home.
