Teal and Coral, Blue and Orange... the teals that started showing up last spring are here in full 'bloom' (pun intended). We are seeing it emerge in the fashion world this fall with a new emphasis. Flowers often (usually) follow fashion and this is no exception. It's so fun to experience the season with a fashion-forward twist.
Recently, two of my friends who are all part of a business women's group, wore this color palette in two different tones, and seeing them both the same day made me pay more attention and realize yes this is a trend! And why not for flowers?
While there aren't a lot of florals and botanicals that are actually teal, there are a few. And a great way to embrace a trend is with a vase in one of the dominant colors.
In the spring, teal and light blue vases started trending, and we're taking advantage of them to enjoy this fall trend. We've sourced new vases, including two that are hand-blown art glass - an amazing gift in themselves!
And we're enjoying creating different floral arrangements - Floral Art really follows fashion! Since there is a limited variety of light or teal or medium blue flowers, the vases are a fun way to bring the teal in, as is eucalyptus, a strong trend right now, too, or succulents.
One is in the softer range of colors, like these designs, one with the teal vase, and one with softer teals with succulents and erygium (thistle):
Or Bring in more neutrals and textures, like this wedding bouquet from one of our October Brides:
The trend can see the teals be brought in very softly and more of an accent with the pale teal foliages.
And then there's the bold and beautiful corals almost trending to oranges, and a bold, saturated teal to support it, like this design:
One of our Members supports a charity, and provided centerpieces for their gala. Their invitations were Teal and Burgundy, so we created these succulent planters as the centerpieces for them.
And teal and yellow are across from the color wheel, so it's a vibrant way to enjoy sunflowers, with a nod to the teal trend!
