Top floral trends for 2023: from Barbiecore to anemones, Fleurs de Villes fleuristes from across North America make their predictions.
PAMELA KLEIN, BLOOME, Chicago
"We see a trend toward beautiful, simple blocking in both element and colour. Whether designing with a single floral or greenery element or going strong with a monochromatic design, there's no doubt about the natural, organic strength in that kind of simplicity."
ANNA GRAZIANI, Fleuriste Italia, Montreal
“As we journey into 2023, I feel the floral trend will embrace the family of the pink palette from the softest tones to the boldest shades. Potential designs will showcase rustic, natural sustainable fashion embracing simplicity and harmony.”
NATALIE PARKS, Natalie Parks Floral & Design, Seattle
“I see there being a lot more colour this season paired with less traditional arbors. I am seeing plenty of warm pinks, oranges and dusty purples on the horizon along with layered ceremony backdrops. Either on pedestals or a unique ground installation, I believe we will be seeing more interesting shapes and architectural designs in ceremony spaces.”
ELLY ZHANG, Olivia’s Garden, Toronto
“In 2023, the first year of the post-pandemic era, a soft palette of pastels will be grounded by a heartfelt accent of the family of red. Viva Magenta, a strong, animated crimson red, rooted in vitality and strength, helps us to invoke the forces of nature.”
ANNA HESS, Blooms Social, Miami
“The 2023 floral trend that I am most excited about is Barbiecore—vibrant all-pink bouquets. Just drop the mic: I love Barbie!”
MARIA SHEA, Dereves Floral, Toronto
“We’ve been seeing a lot of modern black-and-white design palettes, featuring the star of the show: the anemone! We love to incorporate white florals with pops of anemone into our wedding designs. They bring such an elevated look to black chargers or napkin folds, gold candles and sleek modern stationary.”
