Classic Blue is the color of the year set by the Pantone Color report, this means that every shade of blue from periwinkle to Navy is going to show up on what is “in” wedding boards and on Pinterest.
Blues are tough in the flower world because there are not that many truly blue flowers available. Below we have put together a gallery of some popular blue floral options. Some of these offerings are seasonal and several of them are available all year long with your professional florist. Sadly, this is about the bulk of blue flowers available.

So. Here is the reason whey I am writing this blog. Pantone is not choosing the flower color of the year. They are simply picking the inspirational color of the year. There are also sub-colors of the year. For example Spring and Summer Pantone has chosen Scarlet and Saffron which as a designer I am super excited about.

All of these color selections are very bold and strong and are chosen to be a back drop to the event. A blocking color if you will rather than the actual color of the flowers.
Matching the color of the year to your floral selection is about as natural as matching ones eye shadow to it!
I think we can all agree that Classic blue looks far better on a bridesmaids dress, napkin or favor than it does on our faces! I should also throw in a note for the bakers here....classic blue frosting is not going to be cute on your guests faces or come out of your dress...that should be a pass area also.
How do we use a color like Classic blue elegantly and in good taste? There are many ways! Also this is a great place to pause to note, there are a ton of ways to add blue to your florals and have them look absolutely spectacular though it usually takes a professional eye and touch to do so. I will blog on using blues next time! Maybe we will call the next blog, Blue like a Pro!
For now, see the gallery below. You will quickly find that Classic blue is a magnificently strong anchoring color for a wedding and lends itself to a ton of different looks and feelings! Here are just a few:
So, use blue, use all of the blues! Do it up this 2020 and if you need any help or inspiration give me a call or send a line!
We would also love to know what you think about Classic blue, blues or anything else floral that may be on your mind.

Plastic granules are small particles of plastic that are typically used as raw material in the manufacturing of plastic products. They are made by melting down larger pieces of plastic and then extruding the molten material through small holes to form small, uniform pellets. These pellets can then be molded, shaped, or extruded into a variety of different products. Plastic granules are commonly used in the injection molding and extrusion processes, as they can be easily melted and molded into the desired shape. They are also widely used in the production of plastic films, fibers, and resins.
