2015 Flower Trends

We thought we'd bring you a blog post which first featured on the lovely +Boho Weddings - I asked Amy to pop it onto our blog just in case any of you might have missed it, so here goes .....

Here at Campbell's HQ we've had the most amazing 2014, winning awards, being on the telly and working with more wonderful couples than ever, designing abundant, 'just picked' prettiness, using many locally grown blooms as we possibly can.

So here we are again, ready with creative prettiness and to talk all about this year's colour trends.  We find that bridesmaid's dresses can quite often influence floral design, but we always check out this year's Pantone colours too, just to be sure which direction colour is going, and judging by the new season of Dessy and other bridesmaid's dresses - these colours are spot on!


So here are some up-to-the-very-minute ideas of how your flowers can incorporate the current colours.

Whites, creams and greens

Clean, classic, simple and stylish and absolutely gorgeous paired with sage-green bridesmaid's dresses or gorgeous with dove grey.  Whites, creams and greens are infinitely adaptable and can be used in so many styles.  Introduce soft grasses, dried wheat, barley and oats for a pretty meadowy-look or keep it simple using clouds of billowy gypsophila.

Pastels

Perfect with those soft muted aquamarine and glacier grey tones, introduce a little brightness with strawberry colours and even a pop of yellow to lift the overall colour balance by using craspedia or billy balls as they're known in the States.  Gorgeous in buttonholes, these cute little seed pods add lovely texture next to velvety roses or intricate hydrangea along with dove grey foliage and the prettiest brunia berries.

Oranges are not the only fruit!

OK, so I know most of you aren't going to rush out and dress your bridesmaids head to toe in tangerine! But I couldn't resist a nod to this beautiful colour which is just beyond gorgeous when toned down using navy.  Think indigo navy suits for the groomsmen and simple classic gowns for your maids and you might just be persuaded!




Lilacs, lavenders and muted purple prettiness

I'm just a bit in love with this toasted almond colour.  I love how understated and muted it is and how it just looks gorgeously romantic with lovely knocked back colours which have a bit of a grey undercurrent.  Beautiful with grey-green eucalyptus foliage and browny-grey Amnesia roses, these colours can really work with lavenders and lilacs too.
