Lavender Green Flowers

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 - 11:00

Like many, Lavender Green Flowers are looking forward to the upcoming spring months where we not only move away from the colder weather (!) but also have the opportunity to create striking, seasonal arrangements, not just using cut flowers, but incorporating planted bulbs such as delicate muscari, zesty narcissus and vibrant azaleas. See some upcoming trends from some of the LGF team below…

Alice says… ‘At the moment we find a common theme is that people like to focus on the smaller details, rather than just putting a bunch of flowers on a table and saying “done!”. There is more thought put into the technique using intricate and unusual flowers but with fewer varieties in one whole design. For example, you can use more technique to create an ombre appearance using one flower type – simplistic, intricate and effective!’

Ashley says… ‘This year, expect to see a movement towards more interesting colour combinations such as deep sea blues, lustrous greens and muted purples. This links perfectly with everyone’s new love for all things botanical using succulents, clematis, orchids and deep hardy foliage. Paired with matte gold containers your designs will look luxurious and expensive.’

Maddie says… ‘For weddings in 2017 expect to see a move away from feminine flowers towards foliage-only designs. Olive tree, eucalyptus foliage and herbs interspersed between rustic, terracotta pots create a romantic Provençal ambience – particularly with the addition of hanging asparagus fern and tealights.’

Watch this space over the coming year as Lavender Green Flowers move these ideas from paper to life.
