What’s new in florals this summer? The Bouqs Company floral expert, Meghann Ingram reveals a few trends you may want to make note of:
1. Summer means pool parties, awesome outdoor barbecues and epic weddings, but sadly, it also signals the end of peony season. Luckily, The Bouqs Company has a lookalike that is just as gorgeous: English garden roses. They come into bloom just in time for summer weddings, and they have the same fullness of a peony with the elegance of the classic broad rose petal.
2. For an eco-friendly, boho inspired style, incorporate local greenery and forest foliage in to your arrangements – like seeded eucalyptus or forest ferns. This style allows for a more natural, less structured shape and adds a “green” feel to the arrangements.
3. Nothing says summer more than wearing flowers in your hair. Incorporate wearable florals into your wedding schematic with halos, headdresses, bracelets, garland leis and more.
4. For the foodies out there, include a nod to your culinary inclinations in arrangements with edible elements such as apples, pomegranate, nasturtiums, calendula, blueberry sprigs, artichokes, rosemary and other herbs. As the party unfolds, feel free to add some pomegranate seeds into your champagne or rosemary to your reception first course!
