How to Make Your Bouquets and Arrangements Look Fuller

When making wholesale flower selection for wedding and other occasion flower arrangements, consider what will add texture and volume - filler flowers.

Nowadays, filler flowers come in different color choices, fragrances, sizes and texture, to help you customize your floral centerpieces and bouquets.

Bouvardia flowers are quite extraordinary - clusters of star-like flowers with soft white, red, yellow or pink blooms and a delicate scent. In the language of flowers, they represent enthusiasm, and can still look quite fresh and vibrant for up to two weeks.

Stock flowers, with their ruffled petals, will provide a lovely fragrance in an arrangement with other flowers that don’t have much scent. They come in a wide range of hues, including pink, white, yellow, red, purple, and burgundy.
