5 Stunning Wedding Colour Trends for 2016

April 30th, 2016

It can be tricky to come up with the perfect wedding theme for your special day, but a great place to start is with the colour scheme. Once you have this, you’ll have inspiration for your wedding flowers, decorations and bridesmaids dresses. This year, both pale and bold colours are in: think soft pinks and deep purples; mint green and bright blue. We provide six stunning wedding colour trends for 2016 to help your choose your wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets.

Rose Blush Coloured Wedding Flowers

This pale pink shade is perfect for weddings with a romantic, fairytale theme. It’s classy and understated and means creating a harmonious palette of pale pinks and peaches complemented by white. With such a classic look, the bride will wear traditional white while the bridesmaids can showcase blush and nude dresses. Wedding bouquets featuring this shade can be created with roses – either on their own or paired with green foliage or white flowers like baby’s breath or lilies. Blush coloured flowers can decorate the wedding cake and appear in decorations on chairs, wedding centrepieces and place settings.

Serene Blue Shade

Inspired by the skies of summer, this wedding colour shade is perfect for calm and spiritual summer weddings – especially if held outdoors. Wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets can feature blue hydrangeas, cornflowers, pale blue anemones and forget-me-nots. The look is laid back and pretty, and blue flowers will look beautiful with soft peach and white flowers like roses, daisies and freesias. This colour will also work well with beach or sea-themed weddings, where shells and nautical touches feature in floral arrangements and decorations.

Mint Green Wedding Bouquets

This uber-fashionable shade will make your wedding edgy and modern without compromising on prettiness and style. It’s a gorgeous shade for bridesmaid dresses, wedding invitations and even the (literally!) icing on the cake. It pairs beautiful with pink and wedding bouquets featuring flowers in green and pink will really pop against the bride’s dress. Think roses, daisies, dahlias and trailing foliage like ferns and ivy to create an ethereal look alongside this striking green/blue shade.

Burning Orange

Another hip shade for bold brides wanting to make a real statement with their wedding. It’s a great choice for an autumn do, but can work beautifully for summer weddings too. It also juxtaposes strikingly with mint green and can feature on cakes and decorations and alternating bridesmaids dresses. To create wedding flower arrangements with this look, go for chrysanthemums, gerberas and lilies. To create balance, ask your wedding florist to add silvery foliage and paler blooms to the displays and wedding bouquets.

Purple Haze

This regal colour can be interpreted as paler shades like mauve, or dark berry shades – meaning it can be either pretty and understated or striking and sumptuous. Pastel purple flowers to feature in wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets include hydrangeas, freesias, roses and irises. Heather and lavender can be incorporated into rustic arrangements with herbs like rosemary and woodland foliage. For the darker purple, berries can be added to floral displays alongside sweet peas, hyacinths, peonies or anemones.

Wedding Bouquet Styles: What is Your Bridal Personality?

April 20th, 2016

Your wedding day will possibly be the biggest event of your life, so it’s important your wedding flowers reflect your personality and style. The wedding bouquet is in many ways the piece-de- resistance of the big day and will feature in photos and treasured memories for decades to come. Whether you’re a traditional bride or a free spirit, your wedding florist can help you create the perfect arrangement to reflect your uniqueness.

Traditional Wedding Bouquet Styles

For many people, timeless wedding flowers are key for their big day. You might want to recreate the wedding bouquet styles of your mother or grandmother’s wedding, or just want to have a classic look that emulates style and will always look good in the photos. A round posy is the perfect shape for this choice, or for more dramatic styles ask your wedding florist for cascading or pageant shaped bouquets. Traditional blooms for wedding bridal bouquets include roses, lilies, hydrangeas and tulips. White should be the understated shade of choice, but pastel pinks and purples are also perfect for classic posies.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Flowers

For those looking for a green wedding, choose wedding flowers that are in season and can be locally sourced to reduce your carbon footprint. You could even ask family and friends to grow the flowers in time for the wedding. These can then be incorporated into the bridal bouquet and wedding reception flowers. To keep with the green theme, choose flowers and foliage in this verdant shade: think trendy succulents, kale flowers and greenery like ivy and ferns. Flowers like daisies, sweet peas and peonies in abundant, undone arrangements are perfect for this look.

Modern Wedding Bouquet Styles

In this day and age, your wedding can be anything you make it. If you want to do something new and different and make a break with tradition there are lots of choices for wedding bouquets that fit with the times. Rather than pastel colours and traditional flowers like roses, choose bold and bright shades and go for exotic blooms like orchids. Ask your bridal florist for an interesting shape to your bouquet – more graphic designs are favourites for this wedding bouquet style. Go for show-stopping colours like red or bright pink, and think about using flowers that create a more casual look like anemones or sweet peas. The key is to create the style that suits you, and marks your wedding as unique to your personality and tastes.

The Great Outdoors

If you love nothing better than walks in the forest and dream of having your own small holding someday, then you’ll want a wedding bouquet to reflect your love of the outdoor life. Incorporate natural elements like wheat grass, herbs and heathers into your bouquet and add these to buttonholes and place settings to complete the look. Different textures and shapes can be used to create a naturally style bouquet, and rather than ribbon twine and string can secure it. Choose natural hues for the flowers and foliage like oranges, yellows and greens.

Women Appreciation Days 2016: Say it With Flowers

February 29th, 2016

The 8th of March this year is a day of dual celebration; not only is it Mother’s day, often the only day of the year many mothers and grandmothers are given the true appreciation they deserve for their family sacrifice, it also happens to be International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the social, cultural, economic and political achievement of women across the globe. As well as acknowledging the power, strength and equality women everywhere have gained and in some places, are still striving for, its focus also marks a call to action for accelerating international gender parity.

For daughters in search of lovely Mother’s Day flowers, wine, balloons and gifts, as well as those that want flowers delivered to a special lady for International Women’s Day, one of the nicest ways to show appreciation is with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers as the main centrepiece. Daffodils, forsythias, scillas, tulips and pussy willows are all wonderful spring-time choices to create whimsical flower arrangements for the season.

Ideas can range from captivating full bouquets bursting with lilacs, fuschias and golden yellows, or a more modern take on flower-arranging using less flowers but taller, thicker, unusual stems in narrow, slender vases to create an artsy, bohemian feel to breathe some fresh life into a room. Mother’s day flowers, especially orchids and lilies, work especially well for a bohemian arrangement. Add a sentimental picture in a stone frame for a vintage, personal touch.

A selection of March 8 women’s day flowers can be mixed and matched online for the perfectionist who wants to create a truly unique women’s appreciation day gift; for whatever celebratory day chosen.

Decorate your Home with Evergreens and Christmas Trees this Winter

December 9th, 2015

Traditionally associated with Christmas trees, evergreens such as firs and conifers don’t have to only be present in the tree in your home. Lovely scented fir branches (whether bright green or more silvery varieties) can be displayed on mantle pieces or make beautiful table decorations. They can also be made into wreaths to decorate the home or on your front door – and don’t forget miniature Christmas trees which are a versatile decoration that can be placed anywhere in the house. Evergreen branches and sprigs can be bought from florists, garden centres and many high street shops – and lots of places that sell Christmas trees will also have winter foliage to purchase.

Mini Christmas Tree

A full-sized, real or artificial Christmas tree is a must for most households – creating a wonderful welcome for guests in the hall, or a magical decorative treat in the living room. But mini Christmas trees are also a great decoration for the season, and if you have a small flat these can be ideal alternatives to a traditional tree. Choose small potted evergreens in festive pots (such as metallic gold or seasonal red), or go for an alternative such as rosemary trees or orange trees for a different colour and delightful scent. There are plenty of artificial mini trees to choose from too – often fully decorated to make life easier. Display on the kitchen table, use as a centrepiece, add to a windowsill or perch on a coffee table for instant festive cheer!

Deck out Your Christmas Table

Arrange your evergreen branches down the centre of Christmas table for a colourful decoration. You could also add other foliage like olive leaves, eucalyptus or winter branches. Add fruits like clementines and lemons for colour and fragrances and natural elements berries and pine cones. And for the table lighting add white candles or wind fairy lights through your display. A sprig of fir, or of a herb such as rosemary of thyme, can also be tied to a napkin for a delightful place setting. Winter greenery can also be added to Christmas flower arrangements, or added to bowls of pine cones and baubles to make a simple but striking table decoration.

Flowers to Bring the Magic to Christmas Events

November 12th, 2015

The days may be getting colder but what brings a warm glow to our hearts is knowing that the Christmas season isn’t too far away. The months of November, December and January are filled with social events like work parties, family gatherings and festive events with friends – and the likelihood is you’ll be  organising one yourself. Decorations are key – and Christmas flowers are the perfect way to bring colour and vibrancy to a Christmas event. You can always turn to a trusted, creative florist for help creating beautiful Christmas flower arrangements for your event this winter. But it’s also helpful to have ideas in mind for how you want the event to look and the kind of floral displays you’re looking for.

Red and White Christmas Roses

Roses are a classic flower that nonetheless has a versatility that makes it suitable for floral arrangements for all seasons. They create a sense of opulence and richness – perfect for special events this Christmas season. Red roses are beautiful juxtaposed with winter greenery like pine, ivy and fragrant herbs. A full bouquet of red roses will make stunning centrepieces on tables for corporate or casual events, while a single rose dotted on tables makes for beautiful additions to the occasion. Red, white and green being traditional Christmas colours, white roses also present a great option for event flowers. Create winter wonderland displays with white roses and silver or gold adornments like painted branches, baubles and fairy lights.

Green, Red and White for a Christmas Theme

The Christmas tricolore is inspired by the colours of the season: red berries, Santa’s suit and Rudolph’s nose; white snow and doves; evergreen trees and holly. Incorporating these colours into Christmas flower displays will create beautiful, classic displays for guests at any event. Greet guests with a red and white amaryllis arrangement featuring silvery branches, or choose elegant lilies and berries with red baubles – a lovely table centrepiece or addition to restaurant and hotel receptions. A Christmas wreath of pine is a perfect addition to Christmas parties – decorated with gold and silver decorations, red berries and white flowers.

Try Tropical Flowers for a Festive Flair

During this sparse time of year, English flowers are far and few between so we take inspiration for warmer climes for flowers to bring colour and joy to Christmas events. Colourful anthuriums teamed with silvery branches make for perfect Christmas event flowers – whether as centrepieces or at the reception area. Tropical flowers like ginger flowers, birds of paradise and anthuriums are all available in the rich colours of the season – red, orange and gold – and make perfect, striking event flowers for your winter parties.

And never underestimate the addition of a Christmas tree to make an occasion really special. Displayed in the entrance hall or main room of your event – even if it’s an outdoor do – a sumptuously decorated Christmas tree brings instant feelings of warmth and joy. Your London florist can help create the perfect stylish tree to suit the occasion and make your Christmas event truly special.

Inspiring Flower Decorations for October and November Weddings

November 11th, 2015

The months of September, October and November are a truly beautiful time in Britain and offer plenty of inspiration for autumn bridal flowers and fall wedding ideas. The light is truly beautiful this time of year so makes for wonderful photos in the afternoon. And even though it gets darker earlier, an autumn wedding is the perfect opportunity to get creative with lighting – fairy lights and candles on tables – and create a magical day and evening for everyone. Leaves in all their shapes and colours are also natural elements that can be additions to autumn wedding bouquets as well as featuring as table decorations or inspiring invitation, thank you-notes and confetti design.

Leaf love for autumn weddings. Leaves are the real stars of autumn, looking beautiful in the afternoon light, and provide great inspiration for autumn wedding design. Use them to make up table centrepieces and add to jars filled with tea lights to create beautiful additions to guest’s tables. Crunchy autumn leaves can also be used to fill large vases to make unique table autumn wedding decorations.

Leaves can be an alternative to September and November wedding flowers – this time of year they turn an array of beautiful colours and shades of red, orange and gold. Oak leaves are perfect for a classic English wedding and can be arranged in vases or used to make up autumnal bridal bouquets. Large red leaves added to baby’s breath or leaves added to dark colour bouquets will make unique fall designs. And you could spray them with gold or glitter to add extra glamour. Gold leaves can also be used as place settings – just write the name of each guest in calligraphy on them.

Instead of traditional confetti, use leaf-shaped confetti for guests to throw. Or do away with confetti altogether and get your guests to wave sparkler – they’ll make for stunning photos! Tie autumn leaves together with sprigs of lavender or rosemary and add acorns or cinnamon to make heart-warming table place settings for guests. Autumn leaves can even be scattered up the aisle to create a beautiful outdoor feel for the bride,  groom and guests during the ceremony.

Lighting the way. One of the truly special things about autumn is the golden afternoon light illuminating the parks and woodland and streets scattered with leaves. Capture some of this magic with delicate lighting with your autumn wedding decorations. Strings of fairy lights will create a beautiful atmosphere for an indoor or outdoor wedding and can be used at the ceremony and reception. Fairy lights strung round trees will make a stunning entrance to the reception area for your guests, so no one will mind the fact that the night draws in sooner on these autumn days!

Lanterns and glasses filled with tea lights also creates a magical feel, and you can get creative with the autumn wedding theme by using the produce of the season to hold candles. Pumpkins, squashes and hollowed out apples will all make perfect candle holders creating colourful additions to tables.

Top Tips for Autumn Weddings from Todich Floral Design

November 9th, 2015

Often more affordable and arguably more romantic than a traditional summer affair, autumn weddings offer the opportunity to really celebrate the colours and atmosphere of the season. The mists, afternoon light, vibrant flowers and trees are all wonderful inspiration for an autumn wedding theme. Incorporate natural elements like oak leaves into autumn wedding bouquets and use fairy lights, candles and sparklers to create a unique atmosphere.

Celebrate the outdoors. Although it can be chilly in the UK in October and November, and outdoor wedding in the beauty of nature can make an autumn wedding a truly memorable experience. Scatter autumn leaves down the aisle, and create an arch made of branches, berries and hydrangeas. Instead of confetti, get guests to throw vibrant autumn leaves or hold sparklers to make for fantastic photos ideal for autumn wedding design.

Think about using natural elements for autumn wedding decorations like branches, bark, moss, berries and pebbles. If the big day is outdoors then this will create a seamless look from the outdoor surroundigs to the décor of the day.

But remember the weather… Although it’s a beautiful time of year, it can get chilly so don’t forget to have pashminas on hand for the bride and bridesmaids, especially when photos are taking place. Lots of wedding event companies will provide this service for you – as well as umbrellas when needed! – which takes the stress out of the organisation. You might even need wellies on hand if the weather turns and a field, woodland or garden is the setting. Or, for a more stylish option for fall wedding ideas – cowboy boots are a fun alterantive to delicate shoes that may not withstand the autumn rain!

Outdoor heaters can also be a good bet to keep guests warm if the ceremony takes place outdoors. And fairylights and candles are not only perfect to create lighting as the day grows darker, but also make beautiful autumn wedding decorations.

Go with the season for your autumn floral design. There are lots of beautiful flowers and foliage this time of year to choose from for autumnal bridal bouquets and table decorations. There are some many rich colours to inspire floral design for an autumn wedding design – think deep red berries, orange leaves, golden sunlight and verdant evergreens.  An autumnal headdress could be the perfect addition to the occasion – just ask your wedding florist to find out what will work for you.

Don’t be afraid to add produce like pumpkins and berries to bouquets and centrepieces. And continuing the harvest theme – think sheaves of wheat, thistles, herbs like lavender and heather to add to bouquets and floral arrangements. Colourful autumn leaves can also be incorporated into autumnal bridal flowers to create unusual looks. The tone is rustic and very in keeping with the season. Your florist will be able to create the perfect autumnal bridal bouquets for your special day.

Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to get creative, whether it’s decorating the home or installing corporate flowers to bring plenty of cheer to the office.

Holly. This season’s traditional colours of green and red stem from the native Christmas Holly plant. A symbol of a man, Holly was actually used to decorate the home, and surprisingly, traditionally created long before the Christianity. Holly makes spectacular Christmas decorations along and go a long way into completing Christmas flower arrangements.

Mistletoe. Another of many Christmas flowers, mistletoe, a parasitic green and white plant, is an integral part of a fun pre-Christmas tradition. Often placed in a high place, usually above a door, two people are encouraged to kiss, if stood under it at the same time. Other than playing an interesting role, mistletoe also makes fantastic Christmas plants to decorate the home with and shine within Christmas flower arrangements.

Ivy. A symbol of women, Ivy is strongly linked to Christmas and creates a magnificent centrepiece when combined with holly. Tradition has it, Ivy is said to bring great luck and happiness to relationships. In addition, Ivy represents a number of things, symbolising true love, undying affection and eternity, making it a fitting flower for a loved one.

The Christmas Rose. A truly English flower, and universal symbol of love, the Christmas rose is traditionally red. Christmas roses are associated with the story of the shepherds who saw three wise men taking their gifts to baby Jesus. The shepherds had no gift to offer until an angel appeared and pushed aside some snow to reveal an exquisite red rose.
