The beauty of pastels often gets overshadowed by the brighter blooms of late spring and summer. However, there is a quiet elegance about pastel flowers, as well as peacefulness and calm unlike anything else. Seeing a bouquet full of soft-hued pastel florals has a freshness about them that makes you want to take a deep breath and inhale the springtime atmosphere of rebirth, regeneration, and renewed beauty after a cold winter.
Here at Walter Knoll Florist, St. Louis’s number one florist and flower delivery service, we understand the importance of pastel-colored flowers as a more muted way for showing one’s feelings, as well as the expression of optimism and hope they bring. Below, we’ve listed some of our favorite pastel florals.
