The style of floral arrangements also changes over time as new trends emerge. Innovations often draw inspiration from established combinations and techniques to refresh more classic proposals, or turn to the charms of the Orient, or boldly mix elements of different textures.

Whether you want to embellish a corner of your home or decorate an entire event, let’s see together what new trends in floral arrangements you can take inspiration from to make original creations.

Floral arrangements to be reused

For those with a keen eye for sustainability, reusable arrangements are a valuable option for reducing environmental impacts and in fact are really in demand. They are made with a white or green base of dried or preserved flowers, while the central flowers are fresh and are the only ones that can be changed as needed. In this way, the arrangement becomes chameleonic and can adapt to the current season or special events that you want to embellish.

For example, should you want such a centerpiece, you can create an excellent base by joining these preserved or dried ornamental plants together:

  • Reed
  • Bunny tail
  • Bleached Italian ruscus
  • Mini Pampas
  • Dodonea
  • Fern

Fresh seasonal flowers are added to this arrangement depending on the occasion or season. The most trendy customizations in recent years are:

  • Christmas: The predominant colors are red, green and white, reflecting the holiday tradition, which is why the poinsettia is the most iconic flower this season, but red berries, pine cones, twigs and white flowers are also beautiful if you want to recreate the feeling of a snowy landscape;
  • Valentine’s Day: with red roses on Valentine’s Day, you can never go wrong. They are, in fact, a great classic that is always appreciated and can pair well with red carnations and tulips to liven up the arrangement by including delicate accompanying shapes. White or pink roses are also enchanting to associate with red so that it stands out even more;
  • Easter: yellow and white are the most iconic colors of this holiday and also match perfectly with light blue and light green, as they hint at spring and its delicate freshness;
  • Mother’s Day: pink is always the most popular color for flowers to give to mothers, and in 2024 Peach Fuzz is also trending, Pantone’s color of the year, which chose peach pink to express kindness and balance;
  • Spring: During this period it is typical to turn to pastel and delicate colors, such as lavender lilac, but you can also indulge in bright and sparkling color palettes, incorporating tulips, hyacinths and roses;
  • Summer: fuchsia has undoubtedly been the most fashionable color for several years and goes well with soothing blue and purple, albeit with intense hues;
  • Autumn: this season brings warm, earthy hues. Fall flowers such as chrysanthemums, roses, and cyclamen explode in colors ranging from pink to purple-fuchsia, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Fresh flowers can also be complemented with dried fruit, such as oranges, apples and pomegranates.

Special floral arrangements: the Ikebana

Ikebana is a particular oriental art that has had its greatest development in Japan as a true practice of spiritual philosophy related to Zen. Its floral arrangements use a variety of natural elements, so along with fresh flowers, dried flowers, branches, leaves, and herbaceous clumps are also combined. The arrangement is placed in a tall or low ceramic vase, which can be replaced by other materials from nature itself such as a root or a stone.

The result is a unique composition that allows creativity to experiment with different possibilities and reconnect with the flow of emotions. This is why Ikebana is a practice that is becoming increasingly popular in the West as well, not only for the understated elegance of the compositions, but also for finding new ways of understanding nature and balance with it.

Arrangements with fluffy plants

Fluffy plants (namely soft to the touch) offer a unique opportunity to create unusual and trendy decorations. Pampas for example, with its fluffy feathers, adds a bohemian touch to the composition. Bunny Tail also makes an extremely impactful visual statement, thanks to its fluffy, round ball-shaped flowers that pair well with different varieties of grasses and herbs to create an even more ethereal texture.

What are the best combinations for such distinctive plants? Easy, to achieve modern arrangements full of character, just combine them with more classic ornamental flowers and greens:

  • Roses
  • Orchids
  • Tulips
  • Gerbera
  • Lavender
  • Italian Ruscus
  • Eucalyptus
  • Monstera
  • Fern
