New Year, New Flower Trends for 2020

Our Top 5

1 Locally Grown for Weddings

More and more brides are working with sustainable floristry to help keep their bouquets and floral arrangements eco-friendly. Rather than flying in unseasonal blooms, brides are preferring to choose seasonal, British-grown flowers to keep their carbon footprint low.

2 Minimal

When it comes to the way we style our bouquets at home, 2020 will see simplicity as one of the main trend drivers. There's set to be an increase in stripped-back, minimal bouquets.

“ Part of this palette, and another big trend that we are expecting to see roll into 2020, is the use of bleached foliage. This trend started with bleached Ruscus, a type of normally boring cheapish foliage that we tend to steer clear of. However, this bleached foliage works really well with the minimal nude colour pallets.”

Since this trend kicked off, we’ve seen more types of foliage being bleached and available on the market such as Amaranthus and Honesty as well as Hydrangeas and you cannot scroll through Instagram without coming across a bouquet with something bleached in it. This bleaching process allows us to use the structure and form of foliage, with a crisp white background rather than the traditional green.”

3 Soft

To match the minimalist aesthetic,we expect to see a shift towards neutral shades, with subtle tonal differences and complementing colour combinations.

“We predict there will be fewer bolder colours at the fore, but rather small nuances and undertones. Natural tones will become more visible with whites and greens dominating the scene. Whilst gold, cream and coral shades will stay with us for a while, we can expect some educated experimentation with colour.”

4 Fragrant

These days, we’re finding that brides are placing equal importance on the way their bouquet smells as to how it looks! Beautifully scented floral’s such as freesias, lavender, sweet peas and lilacs are making their way into more wedding florals, and we’re even seeing fresh herbs make an appearance! Springs of rosemary, mint, thyme or sage work just as well as table decor as they do in in the wedding food! 

Fragrant herbs also work well with dried flower and grass bouquets.

5 Dried

Dried flowers are increasingly gaining traction and popularity. We think it will be one of the biggest floral trends moving in to 2020.

What exactly is the appeal of dried flowers that seem to resonate with today’s generation?

Besides that, using organic, natural colors and textures materials are also a growing trend in interior design. There is an innate desire for us to connect with nature, especially if we live in the hustle and bustle of a city life. Dried flowers bring nature and simplicity in to our homes and lives, providing comfort and peace of mind to us.

Dried flowers are very versatile and they can blend in to our lives in many ways. While most flowers can be dried, there are some that are more suitable to dry than others.

It’s good to have in mind what you plan to do with the dried flowers before deciding on what flowers to dry. For example, if you are looking to make a dried flower bouquet, you can look for flowers with different texture and different colors, while for flower accessories, you can look for flowers that are smaller and delicate.

Some of our personal favorite dried flowers selection include: protea (it retains the shape and texture of fresh flowers), statice, caspia, craspedia, gomphrena, lavender, carthamus (they retain the color and look as their fresh counterparts), eucalyptus, roses (beautiful dried texture).

As dried flowers usually take on a much different texture, color and feel from the fresh flowers, at the end of the day, it is all about experimenting how to best dry them and how you can incorporate them in a design.
