Spring is a favorite season for flower enthusiasts for obvious reasons. There are bursts of bright new foliage and everywhere you turn trees are covered in blossoms. Some of our favorite flowers in April are magnolias, and if timed right, they will bloom and open to the most show stopping and wow factor arrangements. Today, Snippet & Ink Select vendor, McKenzie Powell, shares her favorite blooms in this month’s seasonal flowers feature.

The star magnolia adds a luxurious and feminine tone, all while still feeling wild and unfussy.

We can barely believe tomorrow is April first. Before March comes to a close, we’re squeezing in our monthly seasonal flowers! You might remember this lavender and pale pink centerpiece from our DIY Wax Seal Escort Card project. With a combination of delicate blooms, berries and branches, this whimsical arrangement by Loop Flowers is a showstopper and a perfect centerpiece for an early Spring or late Winter wedding.

We never met a flower we didn’t like, and while we fawn over floral arrangements that incorporate a variety of blooms, we also think there is a simplicity and beauty in choosing just one type of flower to use in your bouquet or centerpieces. In this series, we highlight the unique charm of individual flowers, and we show just how lovely they can be when given the chance to take center stage.

This week we’re highlighting the water lily, which is a totally unusual choice for a bridal bouquet, yet it’s a perfectly romantic and modern choice. We’d love to see more brides walking down the aisle with water lilies in hand!

Often times carnations get a bad rap, but we’re here to prove that not only are they inexpensive, but as a single floral centerpiece they’re strikingly beautiful.  Tip: When creating your arrangements incorporate different shades to create depth.

Did you catch our DIY Tin Can Luminary DIY last month? Today, we’re focusing on the amazing flowers that were featured inside the centerpieces — anemone and hellebore, in particular! February produces some truly beautiful florals, and Max Gill knows just how make them shine.
