Arranging Pink Flowers

  Think pink limits your palette when it comes to flower arranging? Think again.  
The Martha Stewart Show, March 2010

 

Think pink limits your palette when it comes to flower arranging? Think again.

Matthew Robbins, founder of Matthew Robbins Design and contributor to Martha Stewart Weddings, sees a world of floral possibility in the hue.

For example, pink flowers can make for a very feminine, sweet arrangement, but they can also achieve a more modern, sophisticated look when paired with a copper or grey vase. In addition, the specific shade of pink can drastically alter the tone of the arrangement.


Favorite Pink Flowers
Here are some of the flowers Matthew prefers to use when he's thinking pink:

  • Ranunculus (soft pale pink and darker pink)
  • Sweet peas (blush pink and darker pink)
  • Peonies (dark and lighter pink)
  • Soft-pink tulips
  • Mini pink orchids (dark and creamy blush pink)
  • Pink anemones (soft pink and dark)
  • Mini pink callas
  • Double-pink lisianthus
  • Pink jasmine

    What a very uplifting show today with all the hints of spring pink. Sure beats the gloom of a CO day. There are always so many great ideas one wants to dash out and create them all. What is a good source for the grey vase featured today in one of the arrangements? Grey is a great idea warmer than a metallic

    I love, love, LOVE Peonies. One is an entire arrangement in itself! A couple of Peonies, a couple of roses and you're done! Get rid of the ants first though. I find they don't add to an arrangement at ALL. :)
