Lilies are dramatic flowers that will stand out in any bouquet. Whether you include a single lily or you’re filling you’re entire bouquet with lilies, they will be sure to make a statement. Flower arrangements with lilies make beautiful centerpieces.


Did you know sunflowers aren’t always yellow? That’s right! They can be different shades of yellow, as well as various shades of red. Some grow very tall, while others stay closer to the ground. Regardless, perfectly cut sunflowers make a great addition to your flower arrangement. Their colors have known to be mood-boosting, and they will add an eye-catching shape to your arrangement.


If you’re looking to spice up your bouquet, adding carnations are one of the best ways to do so. Carnations are available in many colors, including white, shades of pink, red, burgundy, yellow, and orange. Every carnation is unique and filled with gorgeous sweet scents. Send your friend a bouquet with carnations to help brighten their day!


Roses are another great way to add perfect pops of color into your arrangement. Roses pair well with almost every flower, so they can easily be incorporated. They’re romantic, elegant, and available in various shades, shapes, and sizes. They’re even great in a bouquet on their own.
