When one thinks of trends in the floral industry, often the sole focus is on color or style. Some hot, upcoming trends in floral design for weddings and events include some unexpected items and pairings. Once thought of as completely separate elements, dried flowers, fresh flowers, and live plants are all being used together in one cohesive styling. Most classically-trained floral designers often resist the urge to use these different elements together, but by blurring the lines of how we use nature we can become immersed in a sense that all of nature’s materials are not separate, but one. As trends continue to evolve within the industry, it’s important to keep an open mind as to what may come. As they say, expect the unexpected.

IFD Flower Trends Forecast 2020 will be released on October 1, 2019. Flower Trends Forecast 2020 is being prepared by Derek Woodruff, AIFD and Helen Miller, AIFD. For more information on trends for living and decorating with flowers and floral décor, please visit
