The IFD floral trends forecast for 2011 is out, I found the titles descriptive & interesting. Nirvana, Fandango, Gazpacho & Soiree. It brought a lot of images to mind, I think they did a very good job of describing the feeling that each is meant to convey. I’m sure you can find the color forecast online, but here is a quick recap for brides who are in the middle of wedding planning right now.
Nirvana: Color palette is white, blue, sprout green & violet, described at peaceful, serene and meditative
Fandango: Color palette is Red, Burgundy, Hot Pink, Fuschia, & Coral described as steamy, passionate, romantic, glitzy, think Spanish dancing!
Gazpacho: Color palette is sprout green, red, carrot orange, gold, plum, wine with copper accents, described as earthy & rich
Soiree: Color palette is white, blush, soft lavender, & silver described as luxury, style, attitude, & elegance. Think warm candlelight, crystal, & luxurious soft neutral tones
Please enjoy your wedding planning!
