Since Lillie's 2012 wedding season is just beginning, I thought this would be a great time to reflect on the 2011 year in flowers and see how the year's predicted color trends actually influenced Lillie's weddings and events.
Sure, I had a hunch what the outcome might be...
It seemed easy enough to guess which color was the most popular. Right? But then I went and posted.(Note to self: posting = homework) To simplify matters, I decided to stick to weddings and exclude our other Lillie's events. So, now the homework is done, lists of weddings compiled and the votes are in, and we're ready to reveal (in descending order) Lillie's top three most popular colors for weddings in 2011
~ in third place ~ brides asking for the silver grays of eucalyptus, lamb's ear, dusty miller and Brazilian gray brunia,
~ in second place with brides requesting the feminine, pale, peachy-pinks of Anna and Majolica pink spray roses, barely peach evening stock and Juliet garden roses.
~ and first place in a run away victory . . . 2011 was the year for purple. from deep royal purples to French lavender and all shades in between. Lillie's bouquets were purple from February until November last year.
Lillie's brides in 2011 requested hydrangea, lisianthus, evening stock, lavender roses, scabiosa, purple stock and lavender sweet peas!
