It’s summer in South Florida, and although it may be a bit warm, we still love to entertain. Be it a beach picnic or a dinner party on the lanai, we are known to get our there and celebrate the beauty of where we live. Longer evenings, brilliant sunsets, and (shall we say) balmy weather beckon – and inspire us to call family and friends to get together for a meal. Your summer table is an expression of all the fun, excitement, and anticipation of the season, so we ask – what is your summer party style? We recommend flowers no matter what the occasion for a get-together, as they add vibrant color, elegance, or whimsy to any gathering. The experts at Port Charlotte Florist have assembled a gorgeous summer flower collection, and are available to give recommendations should you need them.
Water for All: Just like your guests need to stay hydrated during summer months, keep your floral arrangements well watered so they don’t wilt halfway through the meal. You may wish to mist them throughout your party, and if possible, keep them in shade.
Summer centerpieces are much more relaxed than those in the winter holidays – and can consist of virtually any flower and design. For instance, we love this combination of cymbidium orchids, pink roses, green and blue hydrangeas and pink lilies. After all, summer is all about color, and this design celebrates them all!
For a fun twist on your summer picnic table, how about a little Country Charm? Arranged in a rustic birdhouse setting, this gorgeous arrangement is spilling over with sunflowers, roses, and hydrangeas, with Bells of Ireland offering a little linear interest and color. An adorable hummingbird and butterfly complete this homage to Mother Nature, sure to be a conversation piece.
If your summer centerpieces need to be a bit more elegant for the dinner party crowd, the design team at Port Charlotte Florist does not disappoint.
