Decorate Your Home with English Garden Style Florals

The English Garden Style is a type of arrangement that features lush, fresh blooms that pair as nature intended. Mimicking the look of English Cottage gardens where a great variety of flowers grow together in an abundant, overflowing style, this floral arrangement works with any flowers that naturally bloom together bringing the freshest and lushest seasonal flowers into your home.

The professional floral designers at City Line Florist love working with fresh blooms and creating designs like the English Garden style. The rule to follow with this particular style is to not force anything too much but to just let the blooms hang together as they would in nature.

English Garden Style Principles

Lush abundance and burgeoning growth is the ideal look for the English Garden Style type of floral arrangement. Only flowers and greens that bloom together seasonally should be used. Big blooms such as English roses (of course), dahlias, and peonies are popular as well as colorful and full vertical accents such as delphinium, hollyhock, and snapdragon. A large amount of greenery and a decorative urn typically finish off the look. A popular springtime and summertime arrangement, the English Garden Style works can be made with any seasonal florals and greens. 

Pink Mary Rose Shrub

Usually composed of brightly colored flowers, there is also a trend of a mostly pastel-colored palette of florals used with this style. The overall shape is usually round or oval and the overall feel is one of simple charm, no fussiness, but natural beauty as nature intended.
