Ahhhh….summer. That beautiful time of year where we can all relax, sit poolside with a cool glass of sweet tea (or rose), and catch up with family and friends. And what better way to hang out than with a movie night spent watching the classics?
But, of course, it’s no surprise that when it comes to movies, our favorites revolve around flowers!
Check out our top-5 list of flower-themed films to fill your summer evenings with!
1. Steel Magnolias
If you’re in the mood for a real tear-jerker, Steel Magnolias may be for you. A must-see for any southerner, this film begins with a hairdresser, played by Dolly Parton, helping a bride, played by Julia Roberts, get ready for her over-the-top and oh-so-southern wedding complete with gorgeous pink florals. Our favorite line? “My colors are blush and bashful”.
2. Alice in Wonderland
If you’re a fan of roses, Alice in Wonderland has probably been on your list for awhile! Maybe you’ve seen the cartoon version already, but have you seen the 2010 live-action film with those gorgeously brilliant white roses? They’re just too perfect - before they’re painted red, that is! And who could forget about those talking pansies? There’s so many different flowers in this film - we challenge you and your family to re-watch and take note of as many different kinds as you can!
3. Beauty and the Beast
Another Disney classic, the rose is obviously the star of this movie too! We love both the cartoon and live-action versions - from the songs, to the costumes, to the flowers, there are so many great parts about this family classic. Want to go all out for Beauty and the Beast movie night? Order some red roses from us today to make the evening truly magical!
4. Father of the Bride 1 (and 2)
We love watching Father of the Bride I and II for the gorgeous wedding and (*spoiler*) baby shower floral arrangements! From the white roses, to the gorgeous peonies, beautiful lilies, and, of course, the swans, this wedding had everything!
5. The Sound of Music
Maybe one of the best musicals of all time, we can’t help but sing along with Julie Andrews while she dances through the field of flowers in that opening scene! From the mountains of Europe, to the villages down below, we love to see all the different colors of wildflowers there are in this movie. And who could forget her beautiful wedding dress and bouquet filled with white roses and edelweiss?!
