Flower Trends for 2019
flowers are an integral part of any event, and especially a high tea, whether it be on the table, hanging from the ceiling or on your head.
we begged our resident florist phoebe from harper & grace designs to give us the inside goss on what is hot in 2019.
So from the mouth of our floral expert....
We are already a week into 2019 (crazy hey), and with it comes a new wave of floral trends. Here are my predictions of what's going to be all the rage in flora and fauna world.
Firstly 2018 saw a massive increase in the number of flower and green walls at weddings and events. Whether they were used to frame the exchange of "I Do's" or as the backdrop for that perfect selfie, 2019 is going to see that trend continue, but with bigger and bolder colours, as we move away from 2018's colour pallet of whites and softer pastel colours.
Thanks to Meghan and Harry's wedding, floral installations, like flower walls, are going to be bigger than ever and at the forefront of events. Everything from arches to flowers cascading down walls and over furniture, to ceiling installations. We are likely to see smaller arrangements across tables so that clients can direct their money towards showstopping pieces that wow when guests walk in. It also means guests will be able to see each across the table, which is great...unless you don't like the people you are seated with.
When it comes to bouquets, there are a number of different trends on offer to suit any kind of bride. Gone are the days of tight posy's, as bouquets as a whole become a lot more relaxed. All white bouquets will always be in style, but as I said this year is going to be all about bright and bold colours. Think stunning purple and pink phalaenopsis orchids organised into a cascading bouquet or popping out from a sea of other colours. Australian natives are also being embraced, which is fantastic to see as there is so much variety and points of difference on offer, plus you can never go past some baby eucalyptus in an arrangement.
And let's not forget flower crowns, from festivals and hen's parties to adorning the head of the bridal party. Flower crowns are everywhere! Once considered quite bohemian the use of different "modern" blooms means that flower crowns are appropriate for any event, or even just because.
