When you think of spring, who doesn’t think of flowers right away?  And this year, flowers are everywhere.  Look up 2015 spring fashions, and you’ll find that floral prints are all the rage right now.  But flowers like Tinted Black Roses and White Peonies themselves are a fashion as well, especially if you are planning a 2015 spring wedding.  Whether you’re planning on getting hitched soon and still working on last-minute floral designs or you are just looking for the perfect arrangement to grace your kitchen table, here are some beautiful and timely ideas to inspire you.

1) Marsala

Pantone’s color of the year for 2015 is Marsala, and you are going to be seeing it everywhere soon, if you haven’t already.  You may have already seen it in fashion and décor, and perhaps even in flower arrangements!  Marsala is a lovely color, a deep, rich, earthy red with wine undertones.  There’s just a hint of brown in it, giving it an inner warmth that really glows.  Because Marsala is close to the middle of the spectrum in terms of warm and cool tones (though still slightly on the warm side), it can work nicely with a wide variety of colors in flower arrangements.  But Pantone describes it better than I ever could.  Their words are pure poetry, and really do manage to capture the feel of this color:
“Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daring inviting tone that nurtures, exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind, and soul.  Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, which its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”
As a color which is at once grounded and passionate, Marsala makes a romantic, sophisticated choice for wedding arrangements.  It has a very balanced look, and its muted beauty will never be too flashy, even for the most subtle decor.  This is also a wonderful choice if you are buying flowers for your sweetheart or just trying to dress up a room.

2) Rustic inspiration

This year we are going to be seeing a lot of rustic arrangements with a hint of western inspiration.  Seasonal wildflowers play a big part in these arrangements; florists who put these centerpieces together for weddings do an exquisite job of marrying orderly grace with the spontaneity of that just-picked-from-the-field look.  White and pastel blooms are going to be big this spring.  Their washed-out hues create a nostalgic, wistful, romantic look which works perfectly to create a sense of rustic, old-fashioned charm.  While these arrangements are going to be a big trend for weddings, they can also make a nice touch on your kitchen table.

3) Floral crowns

This is a trend especially for weddings.  More and more brides are turning to flowers not just for their bouquets and centerpieces this spring, but for their hair accessories as well.  Small, delicate flowers can make for a very elegant look, as well as a magical sense that the flowers simply have “grown” as part of the bride’s up-do.  Full blooms can also make quite an impact though, as in this photograph.  What a gorgeous, idyllic look, and absolutely perfect for springtime!

4) More than just Marsala

While Marsala is the big color this year, it is hardly the only choice in your palette!  Pantone has also listed a number of other big color trends for this year, including Aquamarine, Scuba Blue, Lucite Green, Classic Blue, Toasted Almond, Strawberry Ice (see below), Lavender Herb, Tangerine, Custard, Glacier Gray, Dusk Blue, Treetop, Woodbine, Titanium, and Sandstone.
This is a very diverse list, and should give you some great ideas for spring 2015 flower arrangements.  Many of these colors would blend beautifully together, and each of them conveys a distinctive mood.  Scuba Blue is a fun, carefree shade, while Lavender Herb is a classic, contemplative tone, and Sandstone is a warm, inviting, earthy color.  Below you can see a gorgeous arrangement in Strawberry Ice, as well as another idea for incorporating Lucite Green into an arrangement.  As you can see, these colors not only make great choices for blooms, but for presentation as well!  Use them for vases, pedestals and more.  These ideas are all perfect for spring weddings, but also would work great anywhere around the house.

5) Go wild

Flower arrangements for spring 2015 aren’t just going to be rustic—in some cases, they’re going to look like they are fresh out of the woodlands!  Arrangements are going to be incorporating ferns, acorns, mosses, succulents, organic local flowers, and berries, not just traditional blooms.  Just look at these amazing centerpieces.  The succulents and the mosses look so natural you’d almost think these arrangements simply bloomed right here on the table.  They also work beautifully with the rustic look of the table itself.  Arrangements like these showcase your love of nature.  And when you use local renewable plants as part of your arrangements, you are also taking a very eco-friendly approach, and green is good.  Eco-friendly weddings are a growing trend as well!
Now you know five of the biggest floral trends for spring 2015.  Many of these trends will continue to be big throughout the year.  You can expect some of these trends to get even more popular as the year goes on as well, like Marsala, which will make a perfect shade for autumn.  So whether you are planning floral arrangements for a spring wedding or one later in the year, or you are just looking for ideas for a unique arrangement for your girlfriend or something charming to put on your living room table, you now have an abundance of beautiful ideas!
