Got vacation plans this summer? Many of us will be traveling within the U.S., but if we’re truly lucky, we’ll be going farther than that. Even if that isn’t you, you’ve likely taken a trip at one point that stuck with you; the culture of a place you visited was so compelling that it left a deep impression that has never left. Flowers are powerful in that they can conjure the feelings of other destinations, recalling their mood and spirit. Through the use of specific florals, greens and other elements, as well as unique combinations of color, texture and shape, Bice’s Florist has been able to design pieces that make our homes feel like, well, somewhere else.
For example, take a look at Caliente. This arrangement makes use of punched-up colors, a flamboyant swirl of curly willow and the addition of succulents to produce an exotic, Latin-flavored appeal. The look is distinctive and interesting, full of character. It’s like having a floral story unfold on your table.
If you’re traveling far and away this summer, be sure to take in the entire landscape, including the flora and fauna, your destination offers. The world is rich with unique flowers and plants that will capture your imagination.
