In Season: Vibrant Color

Posted by

If you thumb through the pages of any major fashion magazine right now you will notice color everywhere. I'm especially delighted to see such an obsession with tangerine and citrus tones.

On a recent trip to Southern California I found color inspiration for this fashionable palette everywhere! Poppies were blooming along sidewalks and many shades of pink bougainvillea clung to tree trunks. Are you afraid of bold color? I say go for it! If you can't make the leap of using these hues on your wedding day, think about incorporating them into your engagement party or rehearsal dinner!

Poppies are especially beautiful in the late winter/early spring and I find myself trying to include poppies as much as possible while they in season. Before you know it they will vanish until next season, so enjoy every minute of this bold, whimsical bloom. Above is a fabulous orange one I spotted blooming in Laguna Beach a few weeks ago.

I love pairing bold orange flowers with hot pink and coral ones. It's a delicious palette that is guaranteed to wow anyone at your wedding. So beautiful!

  • Wow, these are amazingly pretty, but do poppies last well for bouquets? My mom always used to have this expression "But pleasures are like poppies spread, you sieze the flower, its bloom is shed" and it made me think that poppies don't last well once cut?

    Hi there. Thanks for your comment! Poppies are surprisingly strong in arrangements if processed and cared for correctly. I don't recommend using poppies for a bridal bouquet. If you do try using only a few as accents and nestle the flowers into a lush bouquet as they aren't so strong when out of water for a long period of time.
