Eucalyptus fronds are a favored addition to bouquets because they are beautiful and wonderfully fragrant. They are used in a variety of decor, and are prized by brides who are having rustic weddings, as the eucalyptus’ shade of green offers a gorgeous vintage feel, and the scent has aroma therapeutic properties. The scent of eucalyptus is used for many purposes in aromatherapy, such as in saunas and hospital rooms for its antiseptic properties, and it is great for personal use to perk you up if you are tired. Eucalyptus is a fantastic addition to any bouquet, and here are some of our favorite flower bouquets that feature eucalyptus:
Eucalyptus with Fuchsia and Orange
The muted green of eucalyptus provides a beautiful pop against bright colors like fuchsia and orange, as shown in this stunning bouquet. Eucalyptus is arranged amongst Fuchsia gladiolus, orange Asiatic Lilies and eye-popping hot pink roses. This color arrangement is perfect for summer, and would look lovely as a summer wedding centerpiece, or would make one lucky recipient very happy if delivered to their door. To top off this stunning arrangement, the flowers come in a beautiful Waterford Crystal vase.
Eucalyptus and Yellow
The gorgeous green of eucalyptus looks lovely when contrasted with yellow and offers an earthy look that would delight anyone who loves the outdoors. This bouquet shows that simplicity can often be the sweetest look, with soft yellow roses and delicate white calla lillies mixed with eucalyptus. The scent of the roses mixed with the eucalyptus will offer a beautiful fragrance to make this a dynamic bouquet, delighting the senses. With yellow roses being the symbol of friendship, this is a perfect bouquet to let your dearest friend know that you are thinking of them.
Eucalyptus with Soft Pinks and Purples
As we mentioned, eucalyptus is a phenomanal addition to rustic decor, and when paired with other soft colors it is reminicent of an english garden. We are in love with this breathtaking bouquet which features seeded eucalyptus seated amongst lavender roses, green hydrangeas, pink ranunculus, pink tulips and lavender heather. In addition to greens of eucalpytus, this gorgeous bouquet features English ivy, and is arranged in a beautiful glass rectangular vase. Because this is a low-sitting bouquet, it would also make for a breathtaking centerpiece.
While greens make for beautiful fillers in flower bouquets, they often go unnoticed. With eucalyptus added as part of the greens, the arrangement commands attention and will certainly be an eyecatching option for any flower bouquet needs.
