Colours and Flower FashionsPosted on Mar 21, 2016
We have been busy with final check list meetings with our spring Brides and seeing newly engaged Brides in the early stages of planning, happy times for all! In February we prepared flowers for Aisha and Raz and two very special days of family celebrations. Serious partying at Alrewas Hayes and Cheltenham Town Hall. Different colours schemes but glamour, style and sparkle in abundance on both days for a lovely family.
Valentine’s Day arrived with wall to wall red roses, and Easter is on the horizon with yellows, blues and purples. All very beautiful we know, but we thought in our spring blog we would take a look at something gentler and maybe even more romantic, the Pantone colours for the year. Pastels are always popular choices and this year’s shades are quite retro soft bluey pinks and mauvey blues. We think soft warmer ‘rose gold’ will also be popular. The pantone colours will be seen in all aspects of fashion, clothes and accessories and flowers too.
There are lots of flowers within this palette, including all the softer Sweet Pea shades that we use from the garden here, Hydrangeas and of course Roses, Larkspur and Delphiniums…and more.
Unstructured bouquets continue to be a popular choice for Brides with very personal finishing touches which we love to create. Your bouquet, finished with lace to match your gown or with a special piece of jewellery incorporated is a unique accessory and finishing touch to your day. The men are not left out with choices of formal or rustic buttonholes since anything from Morning Dress to country Tweeds are worn so we adapt the flowers and finish accordingly.
What do you think; will you be going with these ‘on trend’ shades or making a different choice? It’s your day and you may want to make a much more dramatic statement with your colour scheme.
We will be at The Curradine Barns for the Tasting Event in May and heading to Lemore Manor soon for Weddings and for their Showcase Day when the new Orangery will be unveiled after months of hard work, it is going to be beautiful and give Brides more choices at this stunning venue.
Through the early spring we have enjoyed holding workshops for the ladies of Shrawley. SWAG do so much fund raising for local charities and after our Christmas wreath making some of the ladies wanted to do some more. So far we have made contemporary arrangements and Easter basket arrangements and will continue after Easter with more projects together. A huge well done to everyone who has come along to the workshops, I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have!
And so with Easter Weddings on the horizon I had better start preparing and get the workshop ready for lots of flowers…………….and oh yes check the Bees!
