Wild Flowers: How to update Vintage Florals

Posted 19 Dec 2017

In terms of beautiful timeless floral styling trends, the fresh-from-the-garden, wild and relaxed vibe is truly a classic. However, the ‘vintage’ trend is SO last season, this term, greenery and foliage are given a bold update with the addition of seasonal blooms in punchy hues and textured florals to add a modern twist to this old classic.


The 2017 catwalks were awash with hot pink hues so it’s no wonder daring blooms have topped the trend list for wedding reception décor right now. Pink is always a favourite for big day florals, but this season it’s all about adding a few splashes of the pretty pantone to give maximum impact. To make your wedding bouquet really pop, add candy coloured tones amongst pastel shades and heaps of statement greenery – don’t be afraid to go big and bold - the wilder and more rustic the better.


For a fresh look, texture is the perfect way to update vintage floral styling: opt for green garlands, beautiful scented eucalyptus and drape across long feasting tables. For ultimate WOW, flowering branches like blousy cherry blossoms add height and drama to table centre pieces. Spring flowers are made for this trend: sweet peas in all sorts of pastel shades, super chic clouds of peachy peonies combined with antique style cottage garden roses all set the tone perfectly for a fresh nod to vintage floral styling. For a winter wedding, pick flowers in differing shades of cream and delicate tones of peach and pink, combined with cute seasonal details such as pinecones and snow berries. Remember to always choose seasonal stems to give you the freshest flowers and way more bang for your buck.


If you’re on a budget, choose a couple of statement urns stuffed full of greenery, textured branches and foliage. Wooden boxes make fun budget hacks – keep it simple and fill with cloud-like sprigs of gypsophila or small arrangements of white ranunculus with trailing green spray foliage. Here’s our pick of the season’s best.
