Flowers Trends 2017


Fashion, music, and tech trends are well known. Think Dolce & Gabana, Taylor Swift, and Pokemon Go! A lesser known trend is everything floral. Flowers in 2016 are not the same as the cookie cutter variety ordered through FTD in days past. And grocery store roses wrapped in cellophane are gone for good. Today, flowers mean bright and beautiful shades of unusual colors and unique petals, mixed with filler that is beautiful enough to stand alone. For those of us at Riverside Flower Club, flowers are truly an art form. Thankfully, we are not alone.

Consider these Flower trends for 2016

  • This website details thoughts on flower trends into 2017, and showcases the color palette shift in flowers over the past few years as well as some noteworthy trends shaping the industry.
  • The “industrial chic” look continues – with metallic accents combined with single-color flowers such as Calla Lilies, Ranunculus, Roses in virtually every variety, and Tulips.

Locally Grown Flowers

Following the “local grown and authentic” appeal of restaurants, brew houses, and markets, flower shops such as Riverside Flower Club are also promoting locally grown flowers. Seasonal flowers provide a more foraged and “wild” look, which is ideal for everything from wedding corsages, centerpieces and get well bouquets.



Locally sourced flowers are also more sustainable and environmentally friendly. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, up to 80 percent of cut flowers in the U.S. are provided by overseas companies. This is a concern, because money spent overseas to procure cheap bouquets fails to improve local the local economy.
