It’s dyed baby

Dyed flowers are so trending, find out why

Yeah…. you probably already know that dyed flowers are so in trend right now.

I mean, everywhere I look I see colors…, lots of them. I see dyed flowers that managed to evolve from an ‘unwanted’ to a ‘must have’ just because they perfectly fit with this new trend.

Let’s take Gypsophila for example. I would never ever thought that I would say I like it and yet this is exactly what I am doing right now. I love the rainbow dyed one, the purple, turquoise, yellow, pink ones too.

And have you seen the Antonov chrysanthemums?  WOW!!!! They are so beautiful.

And the new colors of dyed dianthuses are so ice cream like that you would want to eat them.  😀 I’m not joking!

Carnations come in many colors now when dyed.

In Romania, where I come from and live, these type of flowers were always used for funeral work and we’ve always associated them with sad events but now….they’ve been through such a huge metamorphosis that you can easily do a bridal bouquet with these dyed varieties and no one will ever notice and everybody will love it. And it’s the same thing with many other flowers, you just have to find them to match the design you create.

I’ve recently had a Floral Master class with German florist Timo Bolte and we created a special design for luxury weddings only with dyed flowers. You should have seen the reactions, people could not believe that the flowers are real.

As a florist, I carefully select and combine flowers. For example, I have a personal rule: never mix an exotic flower with a country more rustic one, and yet with this dyed/ painted flower trend it’s easy to combine them. Anyway, whoever invented this ….he or she was a genius, my friends.

I’m looking forward to seeing how florists all over the world incorporate dyed flowers in their compositions.

Until next time, a big warm hug from Romania!!
