Floral Forecast 2016
The floral forecast for 2016 is all about those pretty sorbet like colors. It looks like a sweet 2016 for party tables everywhere, and we’re not talking about dessert. We’ve spotted a sorbet trend for flowers in centerpieces and arrangements for parties, events and weddings. Flowertrendsforecast.com describes the look; “Sorbet is a combination of pastels and brights. The style is young and fresh with a nod to mid-century modern style.”
To create the look at home experts say to use a color palette featuring lemon-yellow, rich blue, coral, spearmint, lavender, powder blue and dove grey. The best flowers to include are softly textured ones, such as peonies, ranunculus, dahlias, delphinium and tulips.
Other floral trends to consider:
- Arrangements that feature both whatever is in season and whatever is local.
- Free-form centerpieces that include a mix of big and small blossoms.
- No more monochromatic, arrangements with more than one color are hot.
If you are not into DIY then you can always buy an arrangement like the one seen below.
