As we move into the heart of the summer, with long days and ever-warmer temperatures, you may be looking for ways to give your home a fresh, bright makeover. And it can be easy, with a few simple additions from Gordon Boswell Florist. Colorful arrangements of cut flowers will infuse style into any living space – and whatever decorating style suits you best, Gordon Boswell Florist has designs that will fit in perfectly. This month we shine a spotlight on one of our favorites – the blue delphinium – which also happens to be the birth flower of July.
The delphinium’s tall, elegant stalks are often utilized as a backdrop for other flowers, due to their height and the stark color contrast. In fact, delphinium is one of the very few species of flowers that actually grows in a true blue color, creating gorgeous palette and design possibilities. The blues are perfect to welcome a baby boy, send a July birthday wish, or to add elegance and sophistication to a sophisticated white and silver bouquet for the holidays.
We love the prospect of using delphinium alone for dramatic and unexpected displays that can cool down the summer heat. Place a few stems in tall, clear vases of varying sizes to add color and style to a tabletop or windowsill in your home. Heading to a picnic? Use clear coke bottles instead of vases, for a more casual, whimsical look.
