Yep, it is officially that time of the year! No, I’m not talking about the holidays, but rather the time when Pantone announces its color of the year! For all of us design and color nerds, this news is always exciting. As you may already know, the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year is Marsala. I wanted to provide a little Marsala floral inspiration and wanted to find out what you think about it (click to view board on Pinterest). Do you think Marsala will be a popular color for weddings, events and everyday florals?
I posted the picture of Kanye’s Mother’s Day gift to Kim early May on Facebook – a flower wall which looked to be perched in their yard somewhere. Florists were saying that they were already receiving requests after that picture for flower wall type structures. Fast forward to Kimye’s wedding later that month and it is now apparent that the “simple” Mother’s Day gift was foreshadowing what we would see for the wedding ceremony’s backdrop – a ginormous flower wall. Made up of white peonies, roses and gardenias (although I think there is more to it) and very reminiscent of the 2012/2013 Dior fashion show, this flower wall picture has made social media history! Like it or not, at 2.29 million likes and over 51.8 thousand comments – THE most liked picture on Instagram EVER – this picture is worth way more than a thousand words and I’m sure will influence many weddings to come!
How many brides have you had ask about flowers walls and structures?

In this edition of the Mayesh Product Showcase, Lisa from the LA Flower Market will share a useful tips to help calculate how many bunches of roses you will need for wedding aisle petals. Using a general size of one square yard, we will demonstrate how to achieve heavy, medium, and light coverage.
To summarize, for a 3 foot by 3 foot area you will need:
- 50 roses for HEAVY coverage
- 25 roses for MEDIUM coverage
- 12 roses for LIGHT coverage
But make sure you keep in mind the size and petal count of the roses you would like to use so that you may adjust your quantities as necessary.
We were recently tagged in some swoon-worthy wedding photos that I just had to share from Posey Pop Floral Designs and Chalk Art …
A heaven where gold, chevron, and pink mix perfectly together to create a rustic and glamorous setting! Since rustic and glamour is such a big combination, we should come up with one word, like they do for celebrity couples. How about “glamstic”, “rustour”, or “ramorous”??
It seemed that last year was the year of the ghost chair – don’t you think? I still really enjoy the look of these chairs, but in terms of comfort they are so-so. At the same time, it has been super trendy to create home dining spaces that include banquet type seating, which are inherently more comfortable, and that seems to be influencing weddings and events. I stumbled across a picture of mixing couches with chairs. I think it is very eclectic and fun – what are your thoughts? Do you think this will become a new trend that we will see more and more of at wedding and event receptions?
Profit – at the end of the day that is what running a business is all about. If you aren’t making money doing what you love, then eventually you won’t be able to do it any more because money will run out. This is always a timely subject matter, but as most of you are getting ready to close out your year and have been planning for 2014, this article will contain some ideas that we hope you can incorporate into your floral business plan.
At Catersource & EventSolutions (2013), Matt Alan of MMD Events gave a run down of how to boost your profitability. Here are some highlights from his session:
