Dahlias, Callas and Orchids provide a splash of Marsala, Pantone’s Color of the Year

May 26, 2015

We like our reds rich and full bodied – our wedding color reds, that is. This is exactly what Pantone had in mind when they announced their color of the year, Marsala. At first glance you might associate the color with fall and winter wedding trends, but we think that this hue is perfect for summer – either alone or paired with a subtle cool color, like French blue. When it comes to spring flower pairings, you’re also in luck – you can find this color in peonies, dahlias, calla lilies and orchids.


A wonderful warm toned arrangement with our favorite deep red is tangerine dream. It’s stocked with orange roses,  rich red callas and hydrangeas.


To add a pop of French blue, consider adding hydrangeas into the mix – a great example is our new beginnings arrangement which includes dahlias in a marsala tone, along with bright orange, yellow and dusty blue flowers with berry accents.


Orchids can also provide a beautiful splash of red – check out our untamed soul arrangement with a mix of pink and red spray roses and dark red cymbidium orchids.
