Those in the floral industry know the importance of Mother’s Day, with it being the biggest floral holiday of the year after Valentine’s Day. In fact, 69% of all Mother’s Day gifts are flowers. As always, preparation is the key to success in the floral industry, and so, ordering flowers in advance and planning for Mother’s Day flowers is essential. One of the ways to do this is being aware of flower trends so you know exactly what to stock, market, or prepare. Keep the following trends in mind when preparing for Mother’s Day 2021.
Some flowers are obvious choices for Mother’s Day gifts and should be kept in mind when arranging for stock. These include roses, lilies, orchids, tulips, peonies, and carnations. Wholesalers and florists should follow trends but also make sure to stock essentials such as these.
2021 has thoroughly embraced pastel colors, making dusty pinks and sage greens extremely popular color choices. Additionally, the Pantone Colors of the Year will be reflected in floral trends, increasing the demand for yellow and grey flowers and combinations.
Sustainability is a huge floral trend that isn’t going anywhere – whether you’re a wholesaler or florist, take advantage of this by stocking sustainable packaging such as wicker baskets and parchment paper. Sustainable flower options such as dried flowers and silk flowers are also very trendy.
2021 floral trends have also focused on accessorizing instead of just depending on flowers – extras are now more important than ever. These include vessels, ribbons, and greenery.
Make It Natural
Natural, “just picked” flowers are still popular, making loosely formed and layered bouquets the preferred type. Ditch the floral foam and complete the natural look with materials like twine, wicker, and rattan.
