Here at Kitty’s Flowers we’re looking ahead to the new year, as much as we love the flurry of centerpieces and seasonal arrangements that signal that the holidays are here. And we’re not alone. International Floral Distributors has made their annual trend report, identifying four distinct approaches to floral design for 2018. While all are exciting, we’re focusing on one in particular for this week’s blog. We love it for its fresh, innovative take, and we think you will, too.
IFD calls it “Incarnation of Earth’s Element,” but we prefer a less cumbersome phrase like “modern nature.” After all, that’s exactly what it celebrates. Think organic minimalism, with an emphasis on geometric shapes (or accompanying decor) that really holds up the flower or natural item itself for consideration. These arrangements are full of intention, but don’t feel overworked. They showcase nature’s unusual shapes, its fluidity and distinctive beauty. Take a look at our Pizazz design to see what we mean.
This style is often grounded by a thoroughly contemporary container, often metallic or painted. A range of blooms and greens are brought together to achieve this effect, which is a lot like living sculpture. We see this sort of design working as a centerpiece as much as it does a work of art; it’s a conversation-starter, a nod to nature’s serenity and a major design statement.
Let us at Kitty’s Flowers help you breathe some new life into your home this new year.
