It was quite a while ago that Lisa and I were talking about colour schemes and trends and my my comments were 'Peach is making a comeback, you mark my words'. She looked at me as though I was a little strange (it won't be the first or the last time!) probably due to the fact that she already knew that the official Pantone colour for 2011 is Honeysuckle.... but I was right!
Peach flowers do bring back memories of eighties weddings and arrangements can look wonderfully modern yet feminine if mixed with the right flowers - think David Austin Roses (pictured left), with peach tulips, monochrome anemones, and cream stocks as recommended by David Austin in the latest issue of Wedding Flowers Magazine (April 2011). For your table arrangements use pretty duck egg blue containers or gorgeous vintage mirrored vases and your reception will have the wow factor.
Or why not just have beautiful peach hued 'Juliet' roses - they look absolutely stunning all by themselves with only minimum amounts of foliage, allowing the flowers to take centre stage. An example is this bouquet (right) created by Claire Cowling for David Austin.
We are sure that whatever you choose, it will be absolutely gorgeous - and if it's peach you will be bang on trend!
