Whether you’re looking for wedding flower inspiration or trying to spruce up your kitchen counter, the biggest floral trends could have an impact on your decision. No bloom really goes out of style, but certain flower arrangements leave a lasting impression on flora fans every year. Here are five striking flower trends of 2018 that you can use in your next gift or decorative bouquet.
The Biggest Flower Trends of 2018
It’s usually impossible to declare a single flower the bloom of the year, but the anthurium certainly holds the title in 2018. This big, tropical bloom makes a statement either as the focal point of a bouquet or a tasteful accent to a colorful flower arrangement. From eye-popping reds to natural greens, the variety of anthurium colors will suit any taste.
2. Vivid Violet
Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year is ultra violet, a bright, vivid shade of purple. It’s no surprise flowers of the same hue have taken hold at every florist. The color calls to mind ingenuity, uniqueness, and a limitless night sky. For this reason, flower arrangements containing this color are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and any occasion looking toward the future.
3. Soft Arrangements
Soft colors reminiscent of sweet treats are a continuously growing trend this year. Cotton candy pinks and blues on fluffy blooms have a dreamy, gentle quality that can soften any atmosphere. Think pastel carnations, peonies, roses, and chrysanthemums. These blooms appeal to a more romantic aesthetic.
4. Moody Colors
On the opposite end of the spectrum, dark, moody colors are also in style. Deeper tones like maroon, plum, and burgundy take the spotlight in direct contrast to delicate pastel arrangements. Brooding roses, orchids, and tulips can give your flower arrangements a darkly beautiful appearance.
5. Unique Designs
If there’s anything to be said about the most popular arrangement trends, it’s that customers are craving more adventurous styles that break away from traditional norms. Playful mixes of shapes, sizes, and colors grace everything from bridal bouquets to birthday flowers. Exotic palms, willow, and tropical flowers can add something special to your bunch.
