Fall is a great time of year to experiment with different floral designs. Here are our three favorite trends for autumn 2015.
1. Textured Pieces: Unusual elements such as succulents, feathers and staves make floral arrangements more linear and dynamic. Foliage is also an important factor in creating more textured bouquets, while incorporating more stems adds a fun and contemporary flair.
2. Organic Arrangements: Loose shapes, asymmetric designs and a natural aesthetic are in. These themes are obtained by using larger, fuller blooms such as peonies or garden roses (as seen in the floral arrangement pictured).
3. Pantone Color of the Year: Floral trends follow fashion. Luckily this year’s color, Marsala, is a great shade for autumn and blends perfectly with the more traditional hues of the season.
