Copper is very much the in colour/texture of the year for wedding flower vases/vessels. I have to say I love it's warm tones and I think it will look even better with autumnal flowers. I was lucky enough to but this gallon flagon in an antique shop in Southwold but nice looking new jugs are proving harder to find....so I am hunting antique and vintage shops for pretty jugs to add to my collection. I have discovered that copper water pitchers are available from India where they are thought to have health giving properties. So that is a possible source of new vessels I intend to explore.
The warm colour of copper would look good with most wedding flower colour schemes but white and green, apricot, peach and burgundy tones would look particularly good.
Each year something new appears on trend, last year was pewter which I also like with tankards filled with flowers. These have a dull, matt silver grey appearance and complement white and green, dusky pinks, pale blues, and apricots. Pewter is warmer than silver and so can work with warm colour schemes.
Also popular last year was gold another warm tone which looks particularly good with white and green colour schemes.
I am always on the lookout for beautiful shaped vessels and as those of you who know me probably already know I love jugs! Probably my first love closely followed by urns! More of which later....
After a career in the Health Service and then time bringing up my family, I qualified as a florist and trained in horticulture. Developing a passion for growing and arranging British garden flowers, I planted a Suffolk cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown coupled with a love of British flowers. I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make artistic designs. for weddings, events and gifts.
