Herb Flower Arrangements
As a company that’s dealt in flower arrangements for many years now, it’s safe to say that we notice trends in wedding and recreational flower arranging before they become widespread. Take for example herb flower arrangements, which have grown in popularity over the last few years.
There are numerous uses for herbs in styling and décor for parties, corporate and private events, and weddings too. Before we get too far into the nitty-gritty of herb floral arrangements, it’s important to note that they don’t keep for as long as flowers do. So, if you’re considering using herbs in flower arrangements for a wedding or event, they’re best sourced fresh on the day or dried and then used.
Leave a Lasting Impression
A mix of herbs and flowers in arrangements and centrepieces can add rustic appeal to your wedding or event, not to mention that they smell amazing. Imagine it, a room filled with gorgeous flower arrangements that fill the air with a clean and earthy smell from various herbs that can be used as accents in the arrangement.
A list of some of the best herbs you could use in a herb bouquet or wedding and event centrepieces include:
- Lavender – What’s wonderful about lavender is that while it is technically a herb, it flowers beautifully as well and the aroma it gives off is undeniably enticing. Consider using lavender as an accent to an existing bouquet or all on its own to add rustic appeal.
- Mint – When paired with roses or other flowers, sweet-smelling mint can make for a beautiful herb-filled bridal bouquet. Some ideas on what you could look into pairing mint with include roses, cosmos, or brightly-coloured wildflowers.
- Rosemary and Sage – Not only do they smell incredible both separately and when paired with one another, but rosemary and sage are incredibly versatile as they can be paired with almost any flower and look stunning. Rosemary bouquets on their own also make for excellent centrepieces.
- Kale – Excellent for more than just your health, Kale has seen an increase in popularity when it comes to flower arrangements. Use it as is with its deep green leaves to add contrast to an arrangement or find purple kale and incorporate it you’re your centerpieces and bridal bouquet for a pop of colour.
Aside from the above recommendations, dried flower and herb arrangements can also make an impact on wedding guests and event attendees when used as styling decoration.
Another use for herbs in a wedding or event setting is as party favours. Consider thanking your guests for attending your wedding or party by gifting them a herb that they can keep, take care of, and use. No doubt that this will help them remember your special day every time they look at it.

As you can see, using herbs in flower arrangements is entirely possible and can add that extra something special to your event’s décor.
