All About Quicksand Roses
If you have been anywhere near the floral or wedding world in the past few years, you have undoubtedly witnessed the Quicksand Rose variety craze sweeping the industry. This beautiful bloom is the perfect dusty pink shade that has become increasingly popular with brides - and for good reason! Not only are Quicksand Roses stunning, but they are also incredibly hardy and consistent in both color and size.
Here at Flower Moxie, we love Quicksand Roses. They are gorgeous and hardy, plus they have extreme color consistency. We love helping brides create Quicksand rose bouquets. In this blog, we'd love to give you all the information you need to DIY your wedding flowers with these gorgeous blooms.
Color & Consistency of Quicksand Roses
Quicksand Roses are named for their sandy blush hues. They are a perfect beige neutral flower with that touch of pink that works great for boho and soft palettes alike. Quicksand Roses may be a standard rose, but because of their popularity and natural size, they are often touted as garden roses. However, because of their general rarity and demand, they are pricier than a standard rose.
Quicksand Roses offer extreme stability and consistency in color and hardiness, so you know they are at the top of our list. We love knowing that our floral designs will come to life just as we had planned!
To achieve the ultimate Quicksand Rose success, you must first prep them correctly. Make sure you clean your stems of thorns and lower leaves, use clean water with no additives, and give the blooms enough space to open properly.
Secondly, keep in mind that most of the photos of Quicksand Roses you have seen on Pinterest have been edited by talented photographers to convey each wedding's feel. This can be in dark and moody or light an airy styles, so they don't look like that in person. Please understand that your photographer has just as much to do with how your flowers look as we do. Wield that power, baby!
Quicksand Rose Alternatives
If you're set on a dusty blush tone for your wedding flowers but having trouble getting your hands on Quicksand Roses, do not fret! We've got you friend. There are stunning rose and other flower alternatives to Quicksand roses that fit any budget.
First, the GOAT of that blushy beige color, The Lynette Cremone. One of our orders specialists Natalie is obsessed with these flowers in a not-healthy, but cute sort of way. They are hardy and gorgeous, with great texture and color. You can get a bulk box with 50 of stems these peach cremone flowers for a steal. For reference, 25 stems of Quicksand Roses will run you a bit more. These are great if you want this color but have a lot of space to fill, so you can grab one of each and save the Quicksand Roses for your bridal bouquet.
Next, if you're looking for more of that beigey-neutral tone, check out Sahara Roses. Sahara roses are more beige than Quicksand Roses. They work beautifully with Quicksand Roses and other dusty blooms if you want the best of both worlds. Just like the Quicksand Roses, they bloom big and proud. Another plus is that they can blend easily with all color palettes based on their surroundings.
Sweet Escimo Roses are another great choice. These are going to offer more of that rustic vibe and are a great filler flower. They play well with other blooms and greens, so they can help create texture in your arrangements.
We love carnations as well because they can offer the most stable colors for the best price. They are also very hardy and have great texture. Because they are so cheap, we also use them as a filler flower. Carnation flowers come in basically every color of the rainbow, so if you are looking for something that leans more towards the blush side we have those as well.
We will occasionally add in some Golden Mustard Roses if the palette is right. We really love golden mustard roses in bouquets, centerpieces, arches, and bxoutonnieres as they can tie the whole even together. They are a great way to change up the color profile and are incredibly opulent.
