Looking Ahead to 2018!

With a new year comes new ideas and fresh perspectives.  Let's take a look at the exciting trends we are seeing for 2018!  

Dramatic shifts in decor are coming!  Blush and gold were extremely popular for several years and then marsala was added to the mix but we are now seeing a definite 180 degree shift in color schemes.  Brides are loving blue and pastel tones and brides who want to add a little flavor to their celebration are looking toward bold color combinations such as fuchsia, yellow and orange.  These new hues bring a fun and fresh vibe to your special day.  Mercury glass and other metals are giving way to clear glass and clean, modern lines.  While greenery in and organic shaping of arrangements is still popular, we are seeing less garlands and runners of greenery.  Other interesting materials are also making their way into weddings such as acrylic and leather.

Trends apply to food and drink as well.  The newest food and drink trends we are seeing include floral flavors, Persian, Israeli, Moroccan {just to name a few} cuisine influences, crisped snacks like chips made from bowtie pasta, and a variety of fresh sparkling drinks!  Champagne and French 75s are making a definite comeback!

Incorporate one {or all} of these trends to bring something unique, unexpected and fun to your celebration!
