New Trends In Floral Design

We are seeing new trends in floral design this year and you are going to be delighted at the newest looks making a splash on the creative scene this season. One such trend is called Hear Me Roar. Bright colors with a special emphasis on multiple shades of bold reds and berries, stylish teal and orange, with steady brown and gray undertones, and plenty of hand-crafted texture will make strong statements. Many of these pieces combine a variety of reds or oranges for a layered look that meets the desire for distinctive design. Hear My Roar can be seen in many of the new trends designed at Ah Sam Florist this season. Read More about New Trends In Floral Design »

September Birthday Flowers & Arrangements
