One of the most sought after flowers for weddings, the spectacular peony causes agida for many the bride and their flower arrangers.  The huge long-lasting blooms come in dozens of shades of pink, red and white and make stunning bridal bouquets and centerpieces.  Our favorite flower buyer Greg (who is up to his ears in flowers 24x7x365) brings only one type of flower […]

Every day we help customers plan flowers for weddings, parties, and business functions.  They usually have a color theme and thoughts about the primary flowers in their arrangements.  At that point, they often get stuck and aren’t sure what to order next.  I often recommend something green.   You may assume I’m talking about green leaves […]

    There are several filler flowers that would great with Glads. I would suggest using some white Wax Flower and /or some white Monte Casino Aster. Both have same white flowers that will compliment the Gladiolas. In terms of greens, I would suggest a small quantity of Ming Fern or Tree Fern. You won’t go wrong with either of these!

    I’m not sure what greens would work (maybe someone else can chime in here).

    I DO know that you can get away without using any. My family and I frequent a nearby restaurant that always displays white gladiolus in large vases. Here are a couple of pictures:

OK, this really wasn’t meant for flowers. But it’s fun…if you like this sort of thing. (I do!) Found this really cool toy on WebsiteTips.com. Clearly, meant for web work (!). But I do that too, and really, at the end of the day, a palette’s-a-palette’s-a-palette – right? So this web app (free – just […]
