WF&FSA FDC2013: 2014 Floral Trends

On the last day of the WF&FSA Floral Distribution Conference Kevin Ylvisaker AIFD, CFD, PFCI, CAFA presented his thoughts on “The Latest Floral Trends”.  Below I have some highlights and a link to his presentation.  Enjoy!

Highlights:

  • Color Trends:
    • blues, greens, grays with a touch of sand – think tranquil beach scene with a heavy influence with a deep rich blue

 

 

  • bright colors
  • pastels
  • gem & jewel tones
  • yellow and gray – currently, one of my personal faves as this is the color palette I choose for our baby’s nursery!

 

 

  • Plant Trends:
    • Terrariums – I’ve definitely been seeing the popularity of terrariums grow over the last year and hope they stay around for a while.
    • Succulents – surely an ongoing trend that we all love hear at Mayesh!
  • Design Trend:
    • Steampunk – I’ve been seeing this type of design emerge over the last couple of years from events to furniture.  One of our Design Star contestants even designed a steampunk succulent boutonniere, which was super cool!

 

 

  • Kevin also conducted some research on his own by utilizing his connections with fellow florists to give us insight on wholesale flower purchasing trends and consumer buying trends.
