The Alluring Sweetness of Pastel Flowers

All of the styles of spring are gorgeous, but often the pastels get ignored in favor of the brighter blooms. Nevertheless, pastel-colored flowers have their own special uniqueness of sending a softer, more muted message with pale tones that bring about relaxation and calm. It’s the main reason why pastels are used for celebrating births and are typically linked with Easter – the soft-hued colors of yellows, peaches, greens, blues, and light pinks are boost spirits and spreads joy in a quiet and serene manner.

Here at VanderSalm’s Flower Shop, Kalamazoo’s best florist, we like working with pastels and producing a bunch of unique and stunning styles with the splendors Mother Nature offers us during this time of year.

Pastel flowers have been known to open lines of communication with partners better than other colors of flowers, and they have a romantic nature associated with them that whispers your feelings of love rather than shouting it. Pastels are an excellent way to show those who are near and dear to you that they are always on your mind. Below we’ve listed a few of our favorite pastel-colored florals.

Our Favorite Pastel Colored Flowers


Pink Daisy

With petals radiating about a circular design resembling the sun, this flower also radiates joy. Daisies give off a positive and happy vibe coupled with a sensation of innocence and humble pleasure. The pink color of daisy, particularly, symbolizes positivity, happiness, good energy, and friendship.


The beautiful, abundant blooms of the snapdragon come in a variety of colors ranging from pinks, blues, yellows, purples, peaches, lavender, and more. These wonderful and unique flowers bring a pop of pleasing color and great texture to each arrangement. Some of the symbolism associated with the snapdragon is deviousness, grace, and strength.

Purple Iris

The striking shape and styles of the iris often make it more of a statement flower in arrangements due to its unique shape and color. A flower with a rich heritage, it’s known to represent valor, royalty, and wisdom. We love it for the beautiful shades of lavender and purple they possess.

Lotus Flower

The national flower of India, the lotus flower is available in pink and white colors. One of the most sacred and beautiful blooms in the world, the lotus blossom is also an exotic and striking flower with rich symbolic meaning. Signifying fertility, knowledge, richness, grace, and purity, the beautiful pale pink of the lotus blossom makes it one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful pastels.

Peach Roses

Roses are one of the most popular flowers on the planet, and it is not surprising considering their symmetrical beauty, lovely fragrance, and assortment of styles. Light-colored pastel roses usually do not get as much attention as the bolder, darker-colored variations, however the soft hues of the delicate rose has its own special kind of quiet beauty. Take for example the peach rose – a warm, charming, and loveliness effuse from the peach rose in such a way it’s become quite popular in weddings now.  In addition, a bouquet of absolutely nothing but peach-colored roses is completely stunning.
