White bouquets have their tradition steeped in wedding décor. We traditionally think of all-white bouquets as the standard of all weddings. It is elegant, sophisticated, and very beautiful. Baby christenings traditionally boast all-white floral arrangements. White is just the perfect color for any occasion. Brides today have opted for colored bouquets, selecting their favorite seasonal flowers for their floral arrangements and bouquets, but white still reigns supreme in the South.
It is extremely warm here in the South, and I always find white seems to make things cooler. I can’t tell you why, but white is a soothing color. An all-white bouquet is stunning and simple. I received such a lovely bouquet several weeks ago and wanted to share it with you.
I think several of our famous Southern phrases come from white flowers: lily-white skin, as delicate as a white rose, and as soft as baby’s breath.
Here in our area, we have wild Queen Anne’s lace growing wild along the roadsides with wild daisies growing up in them. If I could grow those in my garden, that would be the one plant I would have everywhere. Lacey, cool, and ever so delicate. Pick a bouquet of white flowers, and enjoy the serenity. The simplicity of white in unsurpassed.
