How to incorporate Pantone’s colour of the year into your flowers
I’d love to incorporate Pantone’s colour of the year, Very Peri, into my flowers. Do you have any ideas of how I could do this without it being overpowering?
"Periwinkle blue is one of the trending colours for 2022 and 2023. This soft tone between blue and purple means that you can easily incorporate different shades into your wedding flowers. If you want to add just a hint of the Very Peri without it being overpowering, I would use a base of ivory white flowers and incorporate some pale blue and/or lilac tones.
"There are several flowers available depending on the season you’re getting married in. Hydrangeas come in both lilac and pale blue and are perfect in bouquets and table centres, but remember they are water-loving flowers and will need a lot of hydration to stay looking their best! Alternatively, look for delphiniums, agapanthus, blue grape hyacinth, roses, alstroemeria, freesias, Veronica, gerberas, hydrangeas, agapanthus, eustomas, lavender, tulips and carnations to name but a few.
"For a softer look, I would use eucalyptus greenery rather than darker shades, this is a lovely bluey grey leaf and works perfectly with the pastel shades.
"I also often use artificial flowers mixed into fresh flowers if an unusual colour is required – they blend in and look natural."
