Shades of Pink: Integrating Color into your Flower Design

A common color that couples love to pull into their wedding flowers is pink. Pink is a great shade that mixes well with various colors. The color pink is known to symbolize unconditional love and therefore is a beautifully symbolic choice for wedding celebrations. In flowers, many blossoms naturally grow in shades of pink. We as designers are able to play with tone and texture with these pink blossoms. Crepey, delicate pink lisianthus, lush, petal-loaded garden roses, & textural pink hydrangea are just some of our favorites!

From soft and powdery to bright and vibrant, get inspiration from these pink blossoms below!

Real Wedding: Fairmont Copley Plaza

This beautiful Boston wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza featured a blush palette with soft notes of pink and ivory. Cascading greens gave the bridal bouquet a natural feel mixed with lush pink peonies and soft ivory roses. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of roses and sweet pea. Their all-ivory bouquets looked gorgeous against their powdery blush dresses. At the reception, gold pillared centerpieces dripped with ivy and lemon-leaf, filled with roses, peonies, and white apple blossoms. Low centerpieces had the same mix of blossoms and glowed next to mercury glass votive candles.

Four Tables to Inspire your Next Event

1. Bold & Colorful

A bright, bold pop of color and pattern can really elevate your event. For this table, an orange & aqua color palette gave a fresh feel to the table complemented by orange blossoms & metallic vases. The organic feel of the ivy & eucalyptus in the arrangements harmonized with the greenscape of the garden.

 

2. Sweet & Textural

Blush linen with ivory lace overlay is a beautiful combination for this table. Sweetly delicate, the understated palette pairs perfectly with the cream & pink florals. This design has a feminine feel accented by the textural lace detail.

3. Rustic & Natural

For this table, no-linens with a dark wood finish give a rustic vibe. Together, the long wooden tables and loose, organic florals feel rich & tuscan. Clusters of olive leaves at each place setting only further the rustic Italian feel.

4. Ornate & Opulent

This table is all about the linens. Rich plum runners with a damask pattern are the highlight of this table. To accentuate the runners, the flowers are kept in a similar moody plum palette accented by pillared candles that offer a soft glow. Touches of gold add a richness to the overall table.
