Hello Flower Friends!
Welcome to my monthly installment of blog posts based specifically on my Monthly Flower Subscription offerings.
This series of monthly posts aims at bringing awareness and knowledge to the reasoning behind my botanical choices in the monthly subscriptions and will be a good resource if you receive my subscriptions to your door and are curious about the flowers in your home or if you are interested in having a peek in to the world of my Monthly Flower Subscriptions.
When Pantone announced the colour of the year for 2023 as ‘Viva Magenta’, I knew it had to be highlighted in my January flower subscription. Pantone describes ‘Viva Magenta’ as being brave and fearless, joyous and optimistic, full of celebration and inclusiveness; all aspects that I want to show off in my monthly bouquets and all attributes that I want reflected in my business.
I chose this colour to be shown off through one of the most cheerful flowers in our world; the mini gerbera. The bonus of this flower is that it is grown locally in the Lower Mainland! So not only does that support our local economy and helps put food on our neighbours dining room table but it cuts down on the amount of emissions going in to our environment by not transporting flowers around the world.
For the Bouquet of the Month subscribers, you would have found the ‘Viva Magenta’ germinis paired with a ‘Viva Magenta’ rose, bubblegum pink hypericum, purple limonium, and velvety soft silver dusty miller. I really wanted to highlight the Colour of the Year for 2023 so I designed for the germinis and roses to pop against that silver foliage.
What do you think about Pantone’s Colour of the Year choice? And did I find the right colour in these flowers to make it come alive? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
I hope my flowers bring you joy.
