Greenery forms the base of almost every arrangement we create here at Every Bloomin’ Thing. It gets the job done. But, when we have it available, we like to use a floral filler called pink waxflower, or chamelaucium.
This is one of the few fragrant flowers we use. Instead of being super-sweet, it gives a faint citrusy aroma. And it doesn’t radiant fragrance like ginestra or hyacinth, so you may only catch a whiff if you’re sitting very close, or if you crush a few leaves in your hand. It’s a lot like an herb in that way.
Here’s a look at white waxflower incorporated into a spring arrangement:
Pink tulips and yellow freesia round out the bouquet, which is based on a low and lush design well-suited to a coffee table, end table, or kitchen countertop. Several small cube arrangements like this would look sweet lined up on a dining table or buffet.
This combination of spring colors could say “Sunday brunch” or, just as easily, “new baby,” “congrats on your engagement,” or “happy birthday!”
With a little seeded eucalyptus lending drape to the arrangement, and a few tulip leaves perkily pointing upward and outward, the contrasts contribute to a visually-pleasing seasonal look. Waxflower is just the finishing touch.
