Stock: Sweetness in Bloom

One of my favorite flowers to work with is stock, they come in a beautiful array of colors, purple, hot pink, light peach/blush, pink, white, yellow/cream, and lavender. This compact sprays are delicate and so delicious, with fragrant clover like scented blooms that add romance to any design.

Stock flowers come in single or double flowers, but you have to allow them to breath a little bit.  Change water every day, and remove any damage blooms and foliage to ensure a lasting vase life, they can last from 5-8 days. They are available year-round, and they are wonderful accents to spring and summer weddings.

They are perfect complements to a garden party, a vintage wedding and cluster together by themselves, they look stunning and modern as a design. And if you are looking to include a touch of symbolism in your floral design, stock flowers represent lasting beauty and a happy life. static.squarespace.comAs you can see, I am in love with stock, and since I get a lot of requests for blush color floral arrangements, I love including a little bit of the sweet scented peach ones.
