English Garden Style Components
Full, lush blooms, abundant greenery, and thrilling textures, just like you’d see walking through a wild and abundant English cottage garden is key to this style. Composing natural pairings as you’d see in nature and not forcing anything is also important. In stark contrast to Victorian estate gardens which are highly stylized, geometrically designed, and purposefully contrived, the English cottage garden is irregular, overflowing, bountiful, and beautiful. This essence is what you’ll see in English Garden style flower arrangements.
Typically composed of large blooms such as dahlias, roses, or peonies with colorful vertical accents like delphinium, foxglove, and snapdragons, the overall shape is round or oval with a look of abundance and lush greenery. You can see an example of this style in our Spring Splendor arrangement which has hot-pink roses, purple hydrangeas, and lavender stock bundled together with white and green accents.
Also, our Blush Blooms with pale pink roses, beautiful lilies, and lush greenery, looks as if they’ve all just come from the garden.
Perfect for Every Occasion
Often used in weddings, corporate events, Mother’s Day, and Anniversaries, the English Garden style arrangement is perfect for any occasion. Personally, we love having this design in our own home to bring a feeling of the gorgeous English countryside into our abodes. Now that you are familiar with this style, you’re probably eager to get some awesome blooms into your home too, so go ahead and start now!
