Foliage is going to be huge in 2017 – literally!

With Pantone having recently announced their 2017 colour of the year as Greenery stating it as a colour that “speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent”  this confirms it’s place in an idyllic vision or english paradise. Lush, green foliage will continue to be seen in everything from bouquets and floral crowns to archways and table place settings.

Luscious ferns twisting amongst bridal bouquets with scented foliage like Eucalyptus leading the way. If you want a pop of colour this can be achieved with flowering foliage’s like Caramanthus and of course you can always nestle single flower stems, whilst keeping the greenery as the focal point. Moss is such a great medium also and works brilliantly on table settings, bringing fabulous texture to any design.

Wearable florals

Wearable botanics are a firm favourite of mine as they evoke such creativity. If you fancy wearing your flowers, there has never been a better time. Statement, floral jewellery like a choker covered entirely in succulents, or, floral waistband, is an accessory alternative with a little attitude.

Statement floral hairpieces big and small have been around for years and continue to be popular, for good reason. You can go as big and bold or as neat and quirky as you like, they can completely transform a look!

Full floral decor

Flowers for your venue need not be limited to a few centrepieces here and there, couples can go all out and enjoy the magic and scent that floral design can bring – to your entire venue! ‘Tablescapes’ are going to be big in 2017, bringing your table to life with moss covered runners, terrarium’s and other items, perhaps accented with soft candles throughout. Floral/foliage arches and structures are a popular focal point moving into this year for bespoke ceremony spaces, photography opportunities and for couples who simply love the floral look!

Whilst your bouquets are part of your outfit and bring something wonderful to your overall look and the buttonholes just finish off that kilt or a sharp suit perfectly, full floral venue décor can do the same for your venue. Choose a floral designer who knows your venue or visit it with them if it’s their first time there. Walk around and talk through how you want your day to feel, what areas of the venue you particularly love and what ones you really want to see brought to life. That fireplace you adore that will welcome your guests as they enter can be transformed with a trailing floral garland and those windowsills can be lined with floral arrangements to frame the view outside and that staircase, well…
