Some spring flower trends have been posted by the UK Flowers and Plants Association. I think they are right on point with selecting gray as one of the trends. I have seen lots of gray out there. It is a neutral color that allows the flowers to pop against it. Here is some information about the trend, which they name "Colourful Grey" (British spelling), from their site:
Colourful Grey’ symbolises all that is fabulous in nature. Like the first splashes of dawn glimpsed over dark and sleeping hills. Like walking along a pebbled beach on a crisp, spring morning, and noticing one bright orange starfish, washed up by the surf and glowing like a flame amongst ash. Like looking up at a greying spring sky at dusk, and seeing the blues and greens of a magpie’s wing glinting in the dying sun. This is nature personified; with a duality of opposites coming together to form exquisite beauty.
Here are some pictures of how to design floral arrangements using the gray and colorful pops of gerbera daisies.
More spring flower trends to come later this week and next!
