It might be just the time to step away from the seasonal centerpieces and floral hostess gifts we’re steeped in during the holidays and look ahead to 2018’s florals. Luckily, International Floral Distributors’ annual trend report lets us at Central Square Florist do just that, and we’re bringing you along for the ride.
Imagine floral designs that evoke the Mediterranean or capture the sunny spirit of an artist. Think of floral schemes that are geometric and convey a sense of organic minimalism. Among all the floral trends identified by IFD, we’ve selected just one to discuss this week. Mostly because it’s a) beautiful and b) offers a lot to talk about.
They’re calling it Positively Posh, and we can’t disagree. This approach involves the use of dreamy, pastel hues like pale pink and gray, buoyed by a pop of violet or crimson here and there. The idea is that a cascade of petals unfolds like a ruffle, giving a layered yet delicate look. You can see it reflected in our Scents of Spring design.
This style has a tendency to spring from pedestals or embellished containers, adding to the opulence. We think this trend works well when captured in a romantic bouquet, as part of a design scheme in the home or for an event. There’s a contemporary feel to the colors, and the effect is more lush than overdone. Let us at Central Square Florist help you find the perfect positively posh flowers.
