Trends in Tropical Flowers and Optional Uses

If there is something that can be considered exotic, it is tropical flowers. Just hearing the word tropical takes you to a feeling of summertime, beaches and flowers.

There are a large variety of tropical flowers, they are easily applied to any design to add a WOW factor. Since they are trendy due to the summer season, there can’t be a better time than this now to refer to them, their trends and their optional uses.

As the word says it, tropical flowers can be found in tropical areas around the world like Hawaii and Ecuador. Some of the popular tropical flowers include: orchids, heliconia, ginger, pincushion protea, birds of paradise and more.

Many people are a little afraid to use tropical flowers since they are not used in a regular basis. However, if they are applied correctly in a design, there is no need to worry about it.

An option that has been widely used is embedding the combination of tropical flowers and traditional floral products to create a floral design. This mixture of tropical and daily floral is a great way to incorporate tropical floral product into an arrangement you are already using.

In addition to this look, there are other options and trends that are drawing in attention with today’s generation.

Today’s generation is not as concerned about getting the bigger and fuller look out of a design. They are looking for a clean, unstructured look that incorporates plenty of foliage.

To accomplish that clean style with tropical flowers, be sure to include a simpler and more dynamic look. Keep in mind, there are a variety of options that you can try. The benefit of a cleaner look is that less product is needed, and it has the same impact.

Summertime is your opportunity to put tropical flowers into practice. Try to be a leader in tropical styles with these trends. Be true to your style but don’t be afraid to experiment with your options.
