Choosing Colours: Spring

Spring is one of my favourite seasons. When I think spring, I think fresh, everything is new again.

Pastels often scream Spring. Other colours such as yellow, purple, pink and green can also be included with the right combination of pastels.

Many flowers only appear at this time of year. For example: Lily of the Valley ( my all time favourite flower ) lilacs, genista, hyacinth, daffodils, stocks, and so many more.

Choosing Spring flowers reminds me of my childhood. I think of playing in a field of wild flowers, oh so beautiful! Bouquets generally are quite lush and hold a number of different varieties of flowers. Arrangements are more natural rather then formal in appearance.

Themes at this time of year are fun too. You can choose a simple flower like lilacs to run throughout your decor or you can choose a symbol like a butterfly and have it be on your stationary and wedding cake.

Some receptions and ceremonies are inside, some are outside. At this time of year it is probably best indoor here in Canada. The neat thing to do with your decorations is to bring the feeling of Spring indoors. Lush plants and arrangements of fresh flowers in decorative containers, fresh apple blossom branches, fabric napkins and linens in a spring print can all add to enhance your wedding day and set a stage of Spring.

We all at Special Events look forward to Spring! Enjoy Lynne
