With spring around the corner, the masters of flowers at Dubai-based Forever Rose are sharing the 3 hottest trends in flowers, foliage and plants which they see will persist in 2018.
Apricot Orange and Butter Yellow:
Get ready for a surge of yellow and orange flowers being used in all types of arrangements, from whimsical summertime bouquets to minimalist fall centrepieces, there is a quest for fresh new colors. Specifically, Forever Rose is expecting to see flowers that showcase the softer side of these bright sunshine colors. If you love blush or salmon pink, try "apricot orange" instead — it's a peachy hue that feels like a pastel but also packs a punch. "Butter yellow" is inviting and unexpected, not to mention that it's like a dose of instant happiness for your decor. Peonies, Icelandic poppies, Juliet roses, chrysanthemums, carnations, and ranunculus are some of the favorite hues for this colour combination.
There is a new equilibrium and Forever Rose is calling it: moss is the new greenery. A bold statement, it is, but we're expecting to see moss replace the lush and fluffy greenery leaves that have been trending everywhere in the last few years. Moss brings a certain fairytale element to flowers, it can be used in almost every way that you might use typical greenery. For a simpler look, use a moss as a runner down the centre of a long banquet table.
See you later, pastels and neutrals, the rules of the game have changed. One of the 2018 flower trends that Forever Rose is most excited about is the return of colour. Pantone's colour of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet, so naturally, we're expecting to see a lot of flowers in deep purple tones, like burgundy and plum. We especially love how these darker colours look when paired with abundant greenery and nature-inspired accents, like succulents, pampas grass, curly willow, and even feathers. Add flowers in lighter purple and pink shades, such as mauve and nostalgia rose, to create an arrangement that feels dramatic, edgy and a little bit mysterious.
