A look at the top floral trends in Fall 2018
When we think of fall, we think of cool, crisp weather, the leaves on trees changing colors and new floral trends! Fall is a great time of year for cut flowers, as each year allows us to relive beloved classics and find new favorites. Here are five of our favorite fall floral design trends for 2018.
OOne of the best things about fall is the ability to showcase rich, moody hues. With Pantone’s 2018 color of the year being UltraViolet, we’re expecting quite a few bouquets with variations of purple, such as our FOCAL SCOOP™ Dark Purple. Also in for 2018, is combining the traditional autumn tones of red, burgundy and orange with nontraditional colors such as forest green and copper.
Speaking of copper, more and more florists are ditching clear vases and containers for more colorful, unique options, such as copper pots that amplify beautiful fall colors. Other great options for fall containers include silver trophy cups or gold-leaf vases.
Arguably the biggest trend for fall 2018 is floral arrangements with a lot of exciting texture. We’re talking about rich hues, beautiful accents such as viburnum or hypericum berries (our BRISK Cosmopolitan hypericum offers light pink berries against dark green foliage), vines, dahlias, thistles and ferns.
Oversized bouquets are back and bigger than ever! A bit different from traditional bouquets, this style is usually asymmetrical, making it seem a bit wild. For those who want the more traditional style, a rounded bouquet can offer the oversized result, but more controlled.
Succulents might be a year-round favorite, but they are a trendy accent this fall. Many florists are using succulents, with their petal-like leaves and fall-appropriate hues, in centerpieces, aisle markers, place settings, and even boutonnieres to make a unique fashion statement.
