Seasonal Inspiration: Winter Flower Arrangements with Citrus

Celebrating the uniqueness of the seasons is important to us at Calyx Flowers. Reveling in the seasons is evident in our Farmer’s Market Bouquets. In the winter, this means enjoying the abundance of winter fruits available at the markets.

Nature’s way of warding off the winter blues comes in the cooler winter months to perk things up. Chock full of vitamin C, oranges and grapefruits are great cold antidotes and contain antioxidants that can help promote overall health. 

More practically, the colors of oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes in the winter are perfect to help brighten things up. This is a boon to florists when lush flowers may not be so plentiful, as these winter fruits can play an unexpected part in bouquets and holiday centerpieces.

Citrus Centerpieces for Winter

Along with the winter months come all the holidays that we all enjoy; Citrus fruits can also bring warmth to your home during these chilly days. Arrange small oranges, lemons, and mandarins in vases or cachetpots for a seasonal touch. Step it up by incorporating pine cones, evergreen branches, and flowers into the design for added texture and interest. 

Using grapefruits, limes, oranges, and lemons as part of your floral décor creates a winter flower arrangement that looks appealing and smells equally beautiful. During the holidays, oranges or mandarins can be paired with cloves, called pomander balls, for a beautifully scented decoration. Place any pomander balls on a mantle with a Fragrant Lavender Fields Wreath for a calming scent to fill your house.

Indulge your holiday party guests with the delightful allure and scents of tropical citrus fruits. Not only can they add a touch of elegance to your table, but they also make for charming party favors. Use them to create little surprises for your friends to savor on their journey home after a memorable evening. For example, include small tangerine gift bags for a delightful surprise.

Citrus Color in Winter Floral Arrangements

The actual colors of the fruit themselves can also inspire warmth and sunshine on a cold, gray day. From ruby red grapefruits to jewel-toned oranges, the warming hues of lemons and oranges are so welcoming that creating winter floral arrangements inspired by these colors is a no-brainer. 

Some flowers that work beautifully in this color scheme are lilies or Orange Mokara Orchids. Or, choose an all-white palette to create a bouquet or arrangement with warm accents. The white is reminiscent of many flowers, such as orange blossoms, while the monochromatic color scheme feels modern and clean. For a stunning example of how color and scents may be combined, check out our Sunshine & Citrus Wreath.
