The flower industry has come a long way over the years and we have some amazing arrangements as a result. Luxury flowers have become increasingly popular and, like all things in life, trends have developed. If you are looking for a luxury bouquet for yourself or a loved one, here are some current trends to keep in mind.
In terms of luxury flowers, buying British has proven to be a growing trend over the years. From May to October you will enjoy the widest range of local blooms. When buying British, not only are you supporting local growers, but you are also getting the best and freshest flowers on the market. They do not need to be transported from the other side of the world and this is one of the reasons why they last so long.
Another trend in luxury flowers involves the use of dried blooms and grasses. Dried flower arrangements have a wonderful sophisticated look about them but it is important to choose the appropriate flowers. Some popular choices include spray roses, certain types of chrysanthemums, lavender, status and, of course, they are paired with various types of grass.
Just like home décor, neutral colours are proving extremely popular in floral designs. Many shoppers specifically seek out luxury flowers that include shades of brown, apricot or toffee. The muted tones give these bouquets that undeniable sense of sophistication. Some examples of blooms that can be found in these highly desired colours include roses, lisianthus and even certain carnations. You can also add a touch of dusty pink or mauve will also help enhance this arrangement. Make sure that you stick to pastels since you don’t want them to overwhelm the more gentle shades in the bouquet.
Aubergine and black
On the opposite end of the colour scale, dark and rich colours are also proving popular. In the past, these luxury flowers were paired with various other blooms. However, today, we see them all on their own and making a massive impact. Certain roses and orchids are available in very dark colours that are almost black and this adds to their allure.
Luxury flowers don’t always make the desired impact all on their own. The foliage in the bouquet also needs to be just right. Some of the best examples include eucalyptus, English myrtle and various types of grasses. It’s important not to add too much. A little goes a long way in a luxury bouquet.
Now that you know what to look for in luxury flowers, you can shop in confidence! Many florists even have a special section dedicated to their luxury designs which is always a good place to start. In this section, you will find a wide range of bouquets unlike any other! They are perfect for all occasions, especially when you want to impress the recipient.
