Dahlias In Depth – Part 2

I was exceedingly inspired by this week’s “Florists’ Favorite” flower pick, the Dahlia, and present to you four more inspiration looks!

First up, Peace, Love and Dahlias- I love the look of these loose, funky, freestyle Dahlias

I also love single Dahlias a la the below arrangements:

So simple and elegant!

I was swooning over all of the ultra feminine, pastel and sherbet colored uses of Dahlias as well.  Here are some of the best examples of that style:

Another trend for Dahlias, since they’re late Summer / early Fall flowers, is arrangements which capture that balance perfectly.  Indian Summer arrangements, or a “soft” fall look if you will.  I adore all of these pictures (this search led me to amazingly talented Chicago based floral designer Esther Galantowicz of Scarlet Petal, look out for an upcoming “Florists’ Favorite from her, I hope!).  Enjoy!

And lastly, there are great examples of crafty / garden style arrangements with Dahlias:
