The Flowers of 2021

Fruit Branches




Sweet Peas


Highly scented flowers such as Garden Roses, Phlox, Stocks, and Lilly of the Valley.

Trends pull inspiration from the Edwardian era, the 1980s and 90s.

Soft colour pallets like white blushed earthy tones and neutral tones are wildly popular with the other end of the spectrum also growing in popularity. Expect to see bold pops of colour with hand painted blooms and dried flower elements fully saturated: Intense colours that range from neutral to electric shades.

Sustainable Floral Arrangements

Couples seem to be on the search for locally grown and sourced flowers cutting down the carbon footprint. There will be wild loose arrangements with a real organic feel with lots of texture.

Dried Flowers

Dried flowers with more neutral tones and dried grasses, wheat sheaves, pampas grass and bunny tails.

Big oversized blooms with plenty of scent

Edible Flowers

Like herbs frozen in ice cubes for cocktails, flowers sprinkled over desserts.

Living Plants

Potted plants used as entrance décor or to style tables such as potted herbs and greenery.

Doubled as table take home gifts for guests.

Floral table runners will be very popular. Packed with dark and light greenery such as Ruscus, Pistachio, Eucalyptus, Asparagus Fern and Salal leaves along with big head Hydrangeas, running through the design. Teamed with garden Roses, Stocks and smaller and fuller flowers , Phlox, Freesia and Lisianthus may also be incorporated.

Oh nearly forgot! Urns and columns will be big next year

I am so looking forward to it all!
