Floral Trends - Colour of the Year 2018

After the cool calming choice of “greenery” in 2017, Pantone have selected “ultra violet” as the colour for this year.

"A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade… Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future. Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet, like the vast and limitless night sky, suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, lighting the way to what is yet to come. Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, artistic brilliance, and spiritual reflection. Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and nonconformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.”

Here at Penny Johnson Flowers we like to stay current - our stunning 'Coleen Bouquet' is a lovely combination of on-trend pink and purple hues. Of course, our large range of bouquets means no matter what colour you like, we'll have something for you!

Order flowers and bouquets online or come and see us in our Flower shop in Coleshill High Street.

May Wedding at Shustoke Farm Barn

Last May we had the absolute pleasure of providing fabulous floral designs for Emma and Tom (aka - mr and mrs woodward) After their wedding ceremony at Sheepy Magna church, they headed out to celebrate with friends and family at the stunning Shustoke Farm Barns.

Emma, who works at the barns (so no pressure there :-) ) had very clear ideas of what they wanted, and was great to work with. Fabulous florals such as Peonies, scented Garden Rose blooms, mixed foliages, Senecio, Eucalyptus, Hydrangea blooms, fresh cut herbs, stocks, Astilbe and succulents. The recipe was already good enough to eat .

Bridal bouquet, bursting with beautiful pink and ivory blooms, mini spray rose blooms were used for Emma’s hair, the adult bridesmaids had similar designs that complimented the brides bouquet, and the supper cute flower girls rocked their pretty floral crowns of Gypsophila, and mini bouquets.

The reception venue, which is always a pleasure to dress, was a sea of gorgeousness large floral hanging displays hung from the existing pulleys, the top table was dressed with a full pink and ivory floral table runner, and each of the ladies chairs were decorated with lovely little tied displays to match the overall theme. Table centerpieces in rustic white washed crates, coordinating balcony floral and mini displays of fresh blooms added to the cake.

Thank you so much Hannah from hba photography for the images, they are all beautiful.

Here at Penny Johnson we love our wedding work, if you are getting married and looking for a Floriist / venue stylist  for your special day then look no further.
