Whether you’re looking to add a touch of summer to your home, need a gift for the graduate, or are a June bride preparing for your big event, you’re sure to find something beautiful to suit your needs!

Buying flowers in season is not only a great way to save on fresh flowers, but it is also eco-friendly! Below is just a small selection of some summer flowers to choose from:

Gerbera

Gerbera daisies are amongst the most popular flowers in the world. Characterized by their large brightly colored blooms, gerbera daisies add a pop of color to any floral arrangement. They are available in almost 350 shades including bright orange, pink, fuchsia, red, yellow, and white. Gerberas can symbolize innocence, purity, friendship and cheerfulness. They’re great filler flowers in a bouquet of summer flowers or beautiful on their own. Gerbera daisies are also gorgeous in a wedding bouquet.

Carnation

Carnations are a common flower mostly because they are available year-round. They are rich in history and can be found in many different cultural histories and mythologies. Carnations feature full ruffled blooms that are long lasting and available in a variety of colors. Depending on their color, carnations can have different meanings. For example, white symbolizes pure love and good luck, light red symbolizes admiration, and dark red represents deep love and affections. Pink carnations are the symbol of a mother’s undying love. Additionally, carnations are the January birth month flower and the 1st wedding anniversary flower.

Orchids

Orchids offer a touch of delicate, exotic beauty to any home or event. Orchids are available in many colors and varieties. These graceful blooms symbolized virility in ancient Greece and were thought to affect the sex of an unborn child when eaten by the mother or father. During the Victorian era, orchids became a symbol of luxury, which still carries on today. They are beautiful in bouquets and arrangements or alone in something like a boutonniere.

Zinnia

Zinnias provide a pop of color and lend a more casual vibe to floral arrangements. The zinnia bloom is similar to a daisy and is characterized by a collection of brightly colored petals. Zinnias are available in several colors including yellow, green, orange, pink and red. They are said to symbolize “thoughts of friends” making them perfect as a housewarming gift for a close friend. Zinnias are also perfect for bridesmaids bouquets or centerpieces!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
