Predicting For What's Hot In 2011
2011 is looking to be a HOT year. Last summer's trends were all about bright, BOLD colors and dynamic patterns. Do you think this will change in the upcoming year, or stay the same? Here are a few of my predictions for 2011.
Hottest Colors? I think the fab colors for 2011 are going to be light and airy, especially in spring. With Pantone selecting a honeysuckle pink for their color of the year, and 2010's fall being so dark, I think we will all be popping for pastels! However, I don't see them being straight hue, they will be slightly muted.
Hottest Flowers? I think, this year, it's going to be all about great textures! It began in 2010 and I think we will see even more in 2011. The 'Barbatus Green Ball' Dianthus and the uniquely colored carnations are going to be a hit! Also unique focal flowers like ranunculus, protea and anemones will be a hit with chic flower fans.
Hottest Centerpiece Trends?Because we are all used to customizing everything to fit ME ME ME, I see centerpieces going the same direction. I predict medium-high centerpieces that are very organic. Perhaps even use a bit of wood or a branch from the hostess yard. For weddings, bring in even more personal items: textures from grandma's quilt, an antique brooch of your mothers. Also things from the garden are going to continue to be popular in 2011, and not just veggies. Bring in herbs, fruit, etc. â€” especially if they are from your own garden.
Hottest Wedding Colors?Again, 2011 is all about bright, beautiful wedding colors. Expect to see lots of pinks, corals, oranges, blue-green to greens and purples â€” with gray as a neutral accent. For dark colors: navy blood, deep reds, hunter green, chocolate browns.
Hottest Wedding Bouquet Styles?Again, it's all about texture. I think the hand-tied clutch bouquets and Juliet nosegays are what the brides will be looking for. Also unique arm bouquets and cascading bouquets are not far behind! Do keep and eye on the cuff bouquets and even the tight pomander!
So... those are MY predictions... now it's time for you to share YOURS!
