Winter Flower Arrangements-Artistry in Bloom-Victoria BC

Jewel Toned Winter Floral Designs

Winter on the west coast is often dull and dreary.

The oranges and rusts of autumn have passed .

The reds, whites, sparkling golds and silvers of Christmas will be here before we know it.

Now is the time for the rich jewel tones of early winter that are sure to brighten the day of whomever receives one of these warm winter floral arrangements.

In this custom arrangement I covered two sizes of vine balls with pepper berries and heather and added fresh green apples and ornamental black peppers for an organic touch.

The glossy black vases in these arrangements make the purples, reds, and greens of the flowers pop with colour.

Burgundy snapdragons and spray roses create a backdrop for the bright red Freedom roses and lime green Cymbidium orchids.

The days may be cold and damp but flowers remind us that spring will return and in the meantime we can enjoy nature's beautiful bounty of flowers indoors.
