In Bloom: Five Brilliant Bouquets, Five Reasons Why
Spring has sprung, which means it’s high time to make the most of Los Angeles’s fabulous flowers (and florists). Choosing the best blooms for weddings, showers, brunches—and yes, date nights—requires some time and a little ingenuity. But don’t be daunted by having to deliver on the flower power front—it’s well covered. Tacori has the definitive scoop on where to shop and what to look out for. Stay in the know (and in the good graces of your fave people) with the best LA blooms.
When choosing flowers, the occasion is the utmost concern. Meeting the girls for brunch on Sunday? Gift the hostess with a modern monochrome arrangement in vibrant yellow or pink hues. Daffodils and roses pair perfectly, and the tone-on-tone bouquet will make a chic table centerpiece. A pair of Tacori’s lemon quartz earrings from the Golden Sky collection will prove another very welcome hostess surprise.
Saying congrats on a new home or simply celebrating an already-gorgeous place? It’s the season to go green. Couple mint-hued hydrangeas or a similar shrub flower with taller sprigs of green, like lily grass or woody stemmed lilac, for dramatic height. Aim for a similarly striking effect with Tacori’s green onyx and silver necklace from the City Lights collection.
A new baby’s arrival means treating mom to some of her very favorite things, flowers included. Forego overly fragrant blooms for something subtly sweet in pastel hues, like lilies, fringed tulips, or spray roses. Of course, every mother-to-be would also love Tacori’s pale pink rose quartz earrings from the Blushing Rose collection.
The best blossoms for the big day? Classically chic lily of the valley and white roses, teamed with pink blooms for color and assorted greens for depth. Gift the bride “something new,” like Tacori’s rose gold and diamond studs from the Pretty in Pink collection, for the big day.
And what about flowers for that special male someone? Bouquets for men should skew toward darker, bolder arrangements, such as sprigs of berry-like hypericum and plenty of green (think aspidistra leaves) to give a more plant-like effect. The eye-catching bouquet will complement Tacori’s similarly distinctive, milligrain beaded wedding band from the Sculpted Crescent collection.
