Arabs Eyes (Black Pearl Lily)
These little jewels have a perfect white cup of petals with a dark black centre, perfect to add to an arangement for a bit of contrast. We love them with lots of greenery and with enough stem left to allow that beautiful bend that gives them a bell-like feel. Understated and elegant, and the perfect complimentary flower.
All hail the Peony! This is a beauty that just can’t be beat. For this arrangement we pack a punch with a single, multilayered bloom. This peony is seriously stunning focal point that “levels up” anything it’s paired with. Team it with little blossoms like your Arabs Eyes or with greenery like fern for a woodsy, magical vibe.
Fluffy clouds of pastel colour? Yes please! Stock always breaks our hearts a bit with its painfully boring name, but baby does this bloom deliver! With its gelato-hued, ruffly stems, it’s a match for so many different types of greenery. This week we’re loving the texture combo with our leather fern.
A long time fave here at BB headquarters, we love waxflower for it’s tiny, waxy petals, pine-needlley foliage and its all round, rustic boho feel. It’s super long lasting, and a great low-key flower (aka, it dies gracefully if you forget to top up your water!).
Is it weird to say that we like a leaf because it looks like something a dinosaur would have enjoyed munching on? Leather Fern is one of those foliage varieties that instantly changes the look and feel of an arrangement with its generous size and interesting texture. As the name suggests, its leaves have a leathery look which gives this botanical more strength and succulence than your regular, softer varieties.
Or Gerani-yum, as we would like to call it, because this botanical just smells so darn good. Will that straight-from-grandma’s-garden feel, it’s a total winner with its almost herb-like shape and sweet little buds sprinkled on top.
