inspiring wedding & event florals

It’s that time again when we chat about 2012 wedding and event design trends for the week. Today’s trend tip is actually a triple trend! When we were at the Catersource Conference and Tradeshow all three of these very hot trends were popular topics. And the Peonies one was a delightful surprise, too! So what are the three trends?

1- Clusters. One tall centerpiece or one low floral arrangement are not the only way to go when it comes to dressing up your reception tables. Think clusters…lots of small arrangements arranged all over the center of the table. Some tall, some medium, so low…all clustered together! Whether you opt for a grouping of three, or four, five, six, even seven little arrangements together, clustering is a big trend, and this arrangement of your centerpieces can really look fabulous!

2- Textures.  Texturing is a big trend this year; textures in various linens and materials, as well as with flowers. When it comes to textured flowers think about grouping soft and romantic blooms like Hydrangea and Peonies with wild grasses, the very textured Billy Buttons (Craspedia), Scabiosa Pods, and even shoots of Wheat. Think of very organic materials. Contrasting textures, all combined to make a very textured design, is a big trend. We’re really loving it!

3- Peonies. And year round Peonies, at that! Not the right time of the year for Peonies locally? At the Catersource Conference we heard a lot of talk about Peonies brought in from Israel for the Peony-loving bride when the local season wasn’t favorable. Big, fluffy, luscious blooms all year round! So if you’re a Peonies kind of girl then this trend (and possibility) is definitely great news! And a great trend!

We wish everyone a great Easter holiday and weekend. We’ll be back next weekend with another trend tip, and much more. And for more lovely floral inspiration (or any wedding inspiration for that matter), be sure to check out Pinterest. And while you’re at it, follow us! Have a great holiday.
