radiant orchidHow does this compare with Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s colour of 2014?
I think the closest would be the Aqua Culture theme, but really none of the above mentioned colour trends seem to jive with Pantone’s colour of the year, at least not to me!

Keep your eyes open this year for an influx of weddings, parties and other events that incorporate these current trends!

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
