5 Types of Flowers To Use For Your Flower Arrangement

5 Types of Flowers To Use For Your Flower Arrangement

Posted by Simi Flowers and Gifts on 04/19/2022

Now that you have decided to make a flower arrangement to give to someone you love, you probably wonder what kind of flowers are best suited for the occasion. This can be difficult, as many different types of flowers can come in handy during these situations, and different people will appreciate certain flowers more than others. This article will break down the five most popular types of flowers that you should consider using when making your flower arrangement.


Roses are a great flower to use for just about any occasion but can also be costly. Roses are often used in wedding bouquets and as gifts to show affection. Roses come in different colors, sizes, and species, depending on where they were grown. Roses with more fragrant smells will be a better fit for an arrangement where you want them to stand out, such as a boutonniere or corsage. Roses with darker petals are best when paired with lighter-colored flowers. They look lovely alone or mixed with other flowers. Roses can last from two days to a week, depending on how well they’re cared for after being cut.


It’s a bit cliché but true nonetheless: lilies are gorgeous. And if you want to impress someone with your floral decorating skills, what better way than to include them in your arrangements? There are many different varieties—the most popular being tiger lilies and Asiatic lilies. They come in various colors, including yellow, orange, pink, and white. Lilies also have an intoxicating scent that will last for days after being cut. And because they tend to be less expensive than other flowers, you can go all out without breaking your budget. If lilies aren’t suitable for your arrangement, check out our other flower options below!


Daisies are some of those classic and traditional flowers that you’ll see used in flower arrangements all over. Their small and compact nature means they look great when paired with larger flowers, and they can be used to fill up gaps in your arrangement. If you’re new to flower arranging, daisies make a good starting point – as well as looking beautiful, they’re inexpensive too! A few stems of white or yellow daisies will only set you back a couple of dollars. Daisies also have a strong meaning; they are often associated with innocence, happiness, and purity.


If you’re looking for a flower that will pop, chrysanthemums are a good choice. These flowers are easy to find and can last for several weeks. They come in yellow, orange, pink, and white varieties. Aside from using them in flower arrangements, they can also be used as garnishes for salads or on top of cakes and pastries. You can place these flowers in water or vases of water, and they should last between five and seven days. In addition to being available year-round, chrysanthemums don’t need much care when it comes to arranging—you can add them directly into your arrangement without worrying about trimming stems. It is essential to keep in mind that if you have allergies, chrysanthemums may not be an ideal option since some people are allergic to pollen from these flowers.


Carnations are some of our most affordable flowers and can be used in arrangements year-round. Most carnations at your local florist will be pink, red, or white. However, it is vital to remember that they can be found in almost any color when arranging carnations. We recommend using variegated carnations if you’re looking for a pop of color while keeping within your budget. It is also common to use carnations with other flower arrangements, such as roses or tulips. You can also cut them up and add them to vases around your home for a nice touch of color!
