Spring and pastels just go together. The same with Easter and Mother’s Day where there’s also a colorful palette of soft-hued pastels wherever you look. Why are pastels so popular in springtime? Because they are a gentle reminder of the subtle transition from cold winter to hot summer. The softer colors also symbolize new birth and regeneration. Pretty pastels are also uplifting and cheerful in a calm and gentle way. There’s also optimism associated with the light blues, pinks, yellows, peaches, and lavender we see during this time.
Pastel Flowers Are Perfect for Spring
Pastels are typically associated with springtime, but they are actually appropriate during any time of the year. Pastel flowers are popular in weddings, for saying hello to friends, and for letting someone you care about know you love them with a whisper instead of a shout.
Here at Busch’s Florist, Jefferson City’s premier florist and flower delivery service, we love working with pastel-colored florals, and here are some of our favorites.
Pale Pink Tulips
Tulips are one of the most popular flowers in the world and are primarily known for their bold, striking colors. This is why the less common pale pinks, yellows, and peach-colored tulips are some of our favorites. The quintessential flower of spring, tulips come in an amazing variety of colors and shapes with about 150 various species. Tulips also have a vast array of different symbolic meaning based on different cultures. The pink tulip, however, is generally accepted as meaning good wishes, friendship, and happiness.
Pale Pink Roses
The beautiful, delicate pale pink rose is a sign of femininity, elegance, and refinement. A beautiful way to express love and adoration for someone in a more hushed manner than a red rose, the pink rose is also perfect for sending to friends and mothers.
Pink Wax Flower
The small and unique wax flower comes in soft shades of pink and purple and is the perfect accent to any floral arrangement. A wildflower predominantly found in Australia, the wax flower symbolizes long-lasting love, happiness, and good fortune, which makes it a popular flower in wedding bouquets.
All of these lovely pastel flowers come together in our Spring Fling arrangement. The beautiful, feminine pale pink rose stands out against a bed of fresh greenery not to be outdone by the glorious pink tulip and accents of delicate wax flowers. It’s the perfect home decor that welcomes spring inside and is also the perfect gift for Mother’s Day and Easter. It’s sure to be loved and give joy to any recipient!
More Pastel Flowers We Love
Light Green Mums
Chrysanthemums come in an abundant variety of shapes, colors, and sizes and each with its own particular meaning, which is why florists love working with them so much. For spring, the light-colored and pastel color mums are perfect for adding just that soft touch of color to gently welcomed spring into our home. The green pom type of mum makes the perfect accent to any arrangement.
Carnations are delightful, colorful, and when used properly, downright stunning. Loved by the Ancient Greeks and Romans, the carnation has a rich history and is known as the “flower of the gods.” Carnations come in nearly every color and during springtime, we love to use the softly-hued pastel-colored variety.
The delicate, fragrant lovely freesia provides a soft texture adding luxuriousness to any arrangement. Coming in a variety of colors, freesia generally represents innocence.
For a stunning collection of all these pastel floral together in one arrangement, look no further than our Garden Delights bouquet. Presented in a chic bamboo box, the soft pinks, lavenders, and lovely lime greens will put a smile on anyone’s face.
