Bouquet of the Week: Red Anemones for the New Year
As part of our recurring Bouquet of the Week series, Garden Collage continues to present a weekly inspirational bouquet that incorporates intriguing new elements into the traditional practice of flower arranging. This week, Garden Collage styles a New Year Bouquet that isn’t for a New Years Celebration– it’s for the new beginnings that come next.
After the chaos of the New Year we wanted to pull together a bouquet that was light and fresh to symbolize new beginnings and positive vibes. We chose red anemone for it’s colorful “pop” and contrasted it with spring green parrot tulip, and air plants– which are a fun way to incorporate elements that are more often found in a terrarium (plus, you can use them long after the bouquet is dead).
We added a few star of Bethlehem flowers, which give the arrangement a refined look. All of these flowers last a long time, and tulips and anemone change daily (tulips continue to grow even in a vase– it’s one of their more famous attributes– and anemones morph their shape). When properly cared for, anemones and Star of Bethlehem will last around nine days in a vase– bringing an element of longevity into the New Year.
