In addition to naming Honeysuckle PINK the top color of 2011, Pantone has also picked some other trend-worthy colors for the 2011 palette. But what flowers go with these fun colors? Let me help you out with that…
Lavender…yes–so many brides are in love with eggplant–but lavender is actually more trendy for 2011!!! The actual flower/herb lavender comes in this color of course, as well as stock, statice, hyacinth, lisianthus, gladioli, larkspur, freesia, carnations, roses, sweet pea, scabiosa…lots of fun goodies!
This pale pinkish peach hue is awesome–and peonies, spray roses, sweet pea, roses, stock, carnations, lisianthus, tulips, larkspur, snapdragons, dahlias, carnations, callas, orchids, and gerbera daisies all come in this shade.
I am a huge fan of gray, and luckily there are some blooms that fit in the gray family. Dusty Miller, Silver Brunia, Silver sage naturally are gray in tone and there are also “enhanced blooms” like silver thistle, silver-sprayed branches, etc. that would fit into this color scheme as well.
I hope you were enlightened by these 10 fabulous colors for 2011!!! I hope to see more of them in our 2011 weddings!
