English Garden Style Arrangements Explained

Lovely and charming, English Garden style flower arrangements are becoming trendy – as they should. Composed of florals which bloom together seasonally, this flower arrangement captures the essence of an English cottage garden left to Mother Nature’s devices with limited human control. Neither over-stylized or over-done, this design is more about capturing that “fresh from the garden” look with a large variety of blooms just loosely bundled together in a decorative urn.

English Garden Style Basics

Loosely structured in round or oval arrangements, the English Garden style is typically composed of a mix of garden flowers or flowers which would usually grow together in a garden, so they would all be from the same season. With a less defined look, but at the same time very “full,” this style’s charm comes from its natural pairing of different varietals as nature intended. Oftentimes resembling an English cottage garden, the multitude of colors, textures, and shapes grouped together without too much interference from human hands brings the beauty of the garden indoors. 

Typically, you’ll find large blooms such as roses, dahlias, peonies, or ranunculus combined with vertical flourishes such as snapdragons, foxglove, and delphinium to create a wonderful collection of vibrant blooms tempered by a large amount of greenery. 

In the gardens of Avon, creamy peach roses mingle with pretty green and white blossoms along the rambling cottage paths. Revisit the charm of the English countryside with this lovely bouquet of mixed blossoms in a terra-cotta pot, and touch someone’s heart.

Perfect for Every Occasion

Neither overwrought or overdone, the English Garden Style arrangement is perfect for any occasion. Popular in weddings as well as just placed in the home for that elegant Downton Abbey look, this style is one that going to be on-trend for a long time to come.
