The blanket of snow has melted away from our New York streets, but we are holding onto that lovely winter wonderland feeling a bit longer to continue with this week's theme, Winter White. Today we have Miss Lauren Lowman here to share a few tips on how to incorporate that crisp clean feeling through gorgeous arrangements with white flowers and cute houseplants.
Reaching New Heights with Whites
by Lauren Lowman
There is something peaceful and pure in the color white. Whether it be the connection to fresh cotton, bleached sheets, a blanket of snow on the ground outside, or just the simplicity of a white wall, it triggers fresh and clean to the senses. With the new year upon us it is a great time to explore the new fresh looks of white.
Let’s brighten up our style of flowers this winter. I am going to show a few different ways I like to display my favorite white flowers, especially during the wintertime. I have chosen to mix and match a variety of white roses, white spider mums, seeded eucalyptus, leather leaf and some Spruce tree branches (right from the backyard). I paired my arrangements with birch bark vases. Keeping the natural white bark vase parallel with the flower color adds an aesthetically pleasing effect.
There is an innocence felt from white. It can be a simply pure way to display natural beauty throughout your surroundings. Many have stereotyped white as plain, boring, and lacking pizzazz, but, in reality, if arranged in just the right way, you will see it can be very stunning. I think by using your favorite white flowers with a few of my tips, you will soon see what I mean. I hope you can embrace the hidden depths of white this winter not only from the beautiful snow outside, but artistically arranging white throughout your interior.
