Every year brings with it a slew of exciting floral trends. From specific varieties to color palettes, there are plenty of energizing options to breathe new life into your home or workplace. What’s poised for 2022? The new year brings an evolving selection of trends — an exciting turn of events for anyone with an appreciation for botanical beauty.
Whether you’re planning a wedding in the new year or want some creative gift-giving ideas that you can share with those you love, there are fun and interesting trends that are sure to spark your imagination. Here’s what awaits in 2022.
While 2021 embraced soft neutrals, 2022 finds the floral world awash in rich, vibrant colors. There’s still room in the palette for the lighter, more understated tones, of course — they play such an important role in providing balance to brighter shades — but the stars of the show in 2022 are definitely the livelier colors.
Among the most popular choices are warm colors with a jolt of energy — think tropical tones that evoke visions of sun-drenched afternoons at the beach, a cocktail topped with an umbrella in hand, and waves crashing against the shoreline. Rich oranges tinged with yellow, deep pinks, and lavish golds are all strong additions to the year’s floral color palette.
On the opposite end of the spectrum are the cooler hues that capture a sense of serenity. Airy blues are perfect for the relaxation and tranquility they bring. Equally eye-catching are deep, earthy greens inspired by vegetation. These shades channel some natural optimism, providing wonderful balance for the year’s more vibrant color options.
Leave some space for neutral colors that are down to earth and pair beautifully with both warm and cool tones. Popular shades in 2022 include soft ivories, which provide a softer and more approachable alternative to crisp whites. Nutty and buttery shades are also welcome additions to any palette, offering some of their signature comfort and gentle appeal to any arrangement.
The industry is always abuzz with something exciting. These trends may give you some interesting ideas to consider when you’re looking for a pretty birthday bouquet or something to give for an anniversary, Mother’s Day, a congratulatory gift, or another celebration. Sure, you could just snag a pretty bouquet and call it a day, but these trends are sure to inspire something new.
At the top of the list are dried flower arrangements. They’re not just easy on the eyes, but easy to maintain! In fact, that could well be their key selling point. People are always busy, on the go, or otherwise occupied — and unfortunately, it can be easy to put flower care on the backburner when that happens. With dried flowers, you or your recipient never have to think about watering, trimming stems, or feeding. They look just as good in months as they do on the first day.
What’s fabulous about dried flowers is that the options are seemingly endless. Go for bright and bold with something that honors some of the year’s trendiest colors, like The Heath. The addition of a chic gilded vase adds a fashionable and contemporary touch to the design. If you love the idea of incorporating some of the year’s buttery tones into your surroundings, try The Hazel. Featuring a medley of thin and feathery petals, this textured arrangement is stunning from every angle.
Curation is another key trend that captures a more personalized feel in florals. Giving a flower subscription, for example, makes life better for everyone involved. You’ll take pleasure in knowing that your loved ones are always on the receiving end of fresh, elaborate arrangements that are destined to bring a smile to their face every time — and they’ll be wowed for the same reasons, delighting in a colorful and trendy bouquet at regular intervals.
For all the vibrant colors that promise to steal the spotlight in 2022, there’s an appreciation for minimalism, too. You’ll see it in the flower bouquets that are beautifully composed yet understated in their end result. The Unicorn is a joyous example that will turn heads with pops of jewel tones and pastels. Try The Rae if you prefer a more golden, down-to-earth palette.
Classy. Sophisticated. Relaxed. Warm. Approachable. Adventurous. Fun. There’s a sense of flexibility that dominates the floral trends of 2022. These styles radiate with style, and you’ll see it in everything from the timeless glamour of traditional wedding arrangements to the abundance of wildflower bouquets that add earthy beauty to your world.
Peonies, like the vibrant beauties found in The Sunburst, are forever favorites that feature a lush, pillowy texture. It’s the type of flower that instantly brightens up any space with its timeless beauty. Tropical stems also steal the show in 2022, as much for their resonance with romantic sunsets as for their uplifting vibe. The Catalina includes Queen Protea, a marvelous flower hailing from Maui that steals the show in any arrangement it appears.
Roses are always on-trend, too. What makes them special in 2022, however, are the unique colors you’ll find. The Morello is rich and sophisticated, boasting a series of dark cherry-toned roses that are as hypnotic as they are beautiful. Triple the Buttercream offers roses in a stylish buttery tone that embraces one of the season’s biggest color trends.
Layering flowers is another fun trend that makes 2022’s arrangements far more unique and expressive. The beauty of layering is that it allows for a variety of textures and colors to be incorporated into a single medley. Have fun mixing and matching stems you like to create a unique look that captures attention — think roses, carnations, peonies, and lush greenery to provide colorful support in the background.
Given the return to brighter colors in 2022, brides may appreciate carrying deeply saturated arrangements instead of more traditional pastels and soft tones. With their rich array of jewel tones, the roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, and ranunculus in The Amethyst are sure to capture attention as you walk down the aisle.
Ultimately, it’s all about mood and tone. Colors and textures all play important roles in conveying a sense of optimism in 2022. There’s an underlying sense of adventure that makes every choice worth exploring.
