Finnish Flowers

Finnish flowers for your hair

Of course, you are familiar with the perfect Scandinavian tradition of making beautiful flower crowns and flower combs for your hair in summer. Nothing says Midsummer night more than flowers in your hair, right? But even after the summer solstice it is nice to wear Finnish flowers in your hair. So, we gathered a few examples.

The base

You will need floral wire, floral tape and flowers! Check the size first by making a circle and fit it on top of your head. Pick your flowers and, start! You’ll need flower tape, flower wire and scissors.

Full on Finnish flowers

Let’s celebrate our beautiful country by creating a crown in white and blue. Gather beautiful white roses, lily’s and gerbera’s and combine them with lupines and delphiniums. Flowers for Finland! Arrange them in alternating colors or one side blue, one side white. Or go especially creative by creating the cross of the Finnish flag over your head.

Go bright flowerchild!

Or maybe you can create a crown like you just picked them from a field, with wild flowers? Daisy’s, strawberry flowers, forget-me-nots and cornflowers will make you the bell of the ball, the wild flower child you are!  These flowers remind us of the flowers in Finland found in the wild.

Lilly of the valley, flower of Finland

Or maybe go understated and elegant with an all-white variety with lily of the valley and with roses and an allium as an accent. It is a subtle statement to use this flower of Finland. And a beautiful one at that!

Half

Or you can create half a flower crown by making half a wire frame and loop it behind your ears like putting sunglasses on backwards. The advantage of half-crowns is that you can go big without it obscuring your face. So, sunflowers and hydrangeas and giant allium will create a spectacular head piece! Bring the sun to all the Finnish garden parties!

Peach and pastel

Peachy colors always work well in summer. Peachy dahlia’s, roses and maybe even peach-colored hibiscus to create an amazing summery feeling. These peach hues of flowers will go great with sun kissed skin tones and the summer in Finland.

Combs

Are crowns a bit too much for your liking? Attach fresh flowers to a hair comb and see what happens with your favorite hairstyle. Finland’s favorite flowers can also be used in combs!

We can’t wait to see your designs!

Wedding Season Finnflor

Wedding season is here!

Oh, don’t you just love summer? Warm nights, pick nicks in the park and about a million weddings to prepare for? And each bride has their own opinion about what flower arrangement she wants. But you, as a professional have some ideas ready to wow the almost-to-be-married couple! What are this year’s trends?

Grey and sturdy greenery

Grey is quickly becoming the new neutral in bridal design, so it is only normal to see this trend come back in the flower arrangements and bouquets. Try olive branches, succulents, dusty miller and eucalyptus to get those wonderful sage grey colored accents. Pair with dusty pinks in dahlia’s or peonies for a dreamy effect.

Wine red

The amazing deep red color of wine is an inspiration for lots of weddings and then we don’t just mean the drinks. This color is an amazing offset for many color palettes. Especially dahlia’s are amazing in this color, showcasing the depth of the petals. Add them to any bouquet for an updated twist.

Old-fashioned is new and trendy

Old fashioned favorites like Zinnia’s and Carnations are making a comeback. But not just the normal versions, but beautiful heirlooms and colorful varieties with for instance more frilly petals have made people more open to these flowers which had a bad reputation before.

Muted and moody

The color scheme for this year is muted and moody, with a few contrasting bright colors to create more dynamic. Latte, moonstone, dusty blue and stormy lavender are more difficult for florists to find, but will give that fantastic modern twist to wedding arrangements. Think subdued, monochromatic and muted bouquets and you will be right on trend.

Greenery

Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery will also be seen in weddings. Not the specific shade, but more greenery in general will decorate weddings all over Finland. Think garlands of foliage to Greenery adorn chairs in the reception, sprigs and twigs to decorate place settings. Or giant chandeliers made of branches?
