What's The Must-Have Flower For Your Wedding? - Part 5: Ranunculus
Season: Grows abundantly in Spring, also available in late summer from Chile
Price: In spring they can be very affordable.
Colors: red, white, yellow, pink, hot pink, orange, purple/plum, peach
Meaning: Maybe because of the Ranunculus' bright colors or because it's petals form the cutest layers, the Ranunculus is said to symbolize charm, admiration, and attraction. It can also be referred to as the "buttercup" flower.
Cool Fact: You can visit the Carlsbad Flower Fields each Spring to see the stunning acres of Ranunculus blooms. Seriously, the fields are filled with rows and rows of gorgeous, brightly colored Ranunculus blooms!
Why we LOVE them: Ranunculus blooms are perfect for soooo many things! They are the perfect size for boutonnieres (not too large or small), GREAT for bouquets, are bold enough to stand on their own as a centerpiece, and can fit any wedding style (rustic, modern, vintage, ethereal). They just happen to be Stacey, the owner's favorite flower :) Randi, our new assistant loves them too!

Whew! That concludes our week of popular flower features. We have had so much fun sharing information and photos with all of you, but most of all, I hope that you were inspired by the beauty of flowers. It never ceases to amaze me how fresh flowers can transform any event into a dream! Thanks for letting me spread some floral love this whole week.
Although we covered five very popular flowers this week, there is still a chance that we missed your personal favorite. Please share it with us! There's a very good chance we will feature it in a future blog. :)
