Oceanfront galas, backyard barbecues, and rooftop soirées; summer event season has begun! As spring transitions into summer each year, our team at B Floral loves observing how floral color trends transform and adjust to the new season's aesthetics.

After researching new summer trends and taking inspiration from the New York City flower market, our design team has compiled a list of the top 4 floral colors for summer.

Greenery, Pantone’s color of the year, will be seen prominently throughout tablescapes and flower walls at countless summer events this season.

From greenery table runners to succulent arrangements, Greenery embodies a natural feel that will tie together a rustic setting to your event’s theme. Greenery is a rich and versatile color that can be incorporated perfectly into differing event styles such as rustic, modern, or minimalist.

 

Lilac

Lilac is a delicate purple hue that will soften any centerpiece, bar arrangement, or flower wall.

One may think that pastel shades are only for spring, but Lilac is the perfect color to add a feminine pop to your summer event. Reach for varieties such as roses, sweet pea, and delphinium in this lovely hue to any floral element at your event.

 

Peach

Peach is a sweet and elegant color that will add a warm and delicate feel to your event.

It’s the perfect summer color due to its ability stand on its own within an arrangement or provide subtle contrast to darker colors such as purple or maroon. You can find seasonal florals in a peach shade within the orchid, rose, and garden rose varieties.

 

Pink Yarrow

Pink Yarrow is a rich and vibrant pink hue that will provide a bright pop to any summer floral arrangement found at both casual and formal gatherings.

It may look similar to one of spring’s top colors, Fuchsia, but Pink Yarrow contains more pink tones compared to purples found in Fuchsia. Pair florals in shades of Pink Yarrow with either subdued or bold colored varieties to make a statement at your event.

A few of our favorite summer florals found in Pink Yarrow are peonies, calla lilies, and cockscomb.


If you're planning on hosting an on-trend event this summer, make sure to incorporate Greenery, Lilac, Peach, or Pink Yarrow into your tablescape. Take advantage of bright and bold colors throughout the season while the weather is still perfect for outdoor events!
