English Garden Style Arrangements – A Traditional Favorite

If you want to capture the freshness and bountifulness of a lush English garden, then choosing an English Garden style arrangement is the way to go. This gorgeous style contains flowers that bloom together seasonally, as they would in nature. It represents what you would expect to find sitting on the breakfast table inside an English cottage that has an abundant and overflowing garden from where the flowers were just freshly cut.

At Gainan’s Flowers, the English Garden style is a design we love to create, and we can help you with designing the perfect cottage garden-like floral arrangement for your home or special occasion.

 English Garden Style Features

Features of the English Garden Style flower arrangement include large blooms with a wonderful mix of various other flowers and plenty of greenery. The feeling burgeoning growth and fullness pulled together in an informal way and placed in a decorative urn or vase is typical of this style. Often falling into an organic oval or round shape, the essence of the garden style is effortless, naturalistic beauty.

Pink English Roses Blooming

Large blooms such as dahlias, roses, carnations, and peonies are often combined with spikey accents such as larkspur, snapdragon, foxglove, and hollyhock to give the look of a typical cottage garden. Typically including a mix of vibrant colors, there is also a trend of mostly pastel-colored blooms punctuated with spots of bright colors.
