There’s nothing like an English garden-inspired arrangement to make your home look elegant, chic, and charming. With an English Garden Style design, that’s exactly what you’ll get. Resembling what it would be like to stroll through a cottage-front garden, much like the ones that dot the English countryside, this is a style that captures the feeling of a lush and abundant garden with a gorgeous mix of seasonal plants, grasses, and flowers. Here at McNamara Florist, we love working with fresh-from-the-garden flowers to create original designs inspired by Mother Nature, and the English Garden Style is one of our favorite arrangements. Read on to find out why.
English Garden Style Essentials
The one golden rule of the English Garden Style is that all components must be from the same season. The goal is to recreate how the flowers would look growing together in nature, so blooms which typical pair well together, as well as any green accents, should all appear as if plucked from the same garden. Other elements typically include large blooms such as roses, peonies, dahlias, and ranunculus with vertical flourishes in the form of snapdragons, delphinium, larkspur, and foxglove. This style is also defined by a more than usual amount of fresh greens for accent and fill.
The look is also one of casual elegance, where the flowers seem to be casually placed in a decorative pot as opposed to “forced” or stylized. This arrangement is usually in artfully irregular oval or round shape and the lack of being overwork by humans is what gives it its charm.
