Hayford & Rhodes

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 15:00

Every new season brings to life a whole new palette, and in the floristry industry, it’s a chance for us, here at Hayford & Rhodes, to get creative in response to the new trends. Through flowers, we try to capture a feeling, and for autumn, we wanted our bouquets to invoke the happy, healthy rosy glow after a day outside collecting conkers and jumping in piles of leaves.

This autumn, Hayford & Rhodes took inspiration from the Royal Parks, and infused our designs with burnt ruby reds, pinks – ranging from light, almost white through to darker crimson – coupled with lots of foliage, as a nod to Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year, Greenery. 

Using foliage complements and softens the intense colours of our Hyde Park and Richmond Park designs, which are intense bursts of our signature pink, warming merlot, damson and burgundy.

Bringing the outside in is the theme of autumn, and whilst we can’t quite fit mini pumpkins and gourds into our bouquets, we’ve added in some bunches of Rubus Berry and Rosehip for a harvest festival feel.

The hazy sunsets we’ve been enjoying this unseasonably warm autumn mean that chunky knits are still packed away in mothballs, and we’ve incorporated that ‘can’t believe how mild it is!’ moment in our Regents’ Park bouquet. Autumnal colours don’t have to be dark and intense: Blending cappuccino, peach, apricot, ochre and cream add a sense of light, almost like the last few rays of warm sun before the woolly hats and scarves come out…
