Floral Arrangements by Season

Floral arrangements provide the perfect centerpiece to so many occasions, including weddings and other celebrations. They also make great gifts and can be used as a token of gratitude. With all the countless options, the problem is deciding which flower, arrangement, or bridal bouquet is ideal for any given moment.

One particularly helpful trick is to look at the floral arrangements that are in-season for your festivities. Depending on the time of the year, some flowers will be in bloom, while others won’t. For example, if you want japanese flowers like cherry blossoms, you’ll need to plan your event for the spring. Even so, you will likely still need to contact your local florist to ask about their inventory, as well as price, both of which are important considerations.

With that in mind, take a look below at the lists of flowers that are in-season for the spring, summer, fall/autumn, and winter months. As you scroll through and make your decision, keep in mind that you’ll want to preserve your floral arrangements for the future, which can also help you to narrow down your choices.
