What about colour?
My advice is simple, be brave, clash colours, but don’t over arrange, keep it simple, nothing too fussy or busy. Don’t be afraid to go BIG with giant urns filled high at entrance points for maximum impact.
Any favourite floral trends for 2017?
I try not to follow trends as they come and go and date so quickly. You don’t want to be looking back at you wedding or party pictures 10 years on thinking ‘why on earth did I do that?”.
But ‘Greenery’ is big this year and you’ll always see plenty of herbs, moss and herbaceous flowers and foliage in my work. There’s nothing worse than a flower snob – if you love a particular flower that’s not ‘on-trend’ then go for it, it’s all about how you use them. People frown on carnations but arranged in a big ball en masse they can look stunning. Gypsophila is making a real resurgence and looks wonderful mixed with white hydrangeas.
