A few weeks ago I introduced the first Loved by Coco star – the rather fabulous vintage stylist Kate Fletcher from Vintage Style Hire fame – and over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing the talents of even more gorgeous supplier finds and the latest in venue offerings, all loved by Coco… That’ll me be then.
Where did January go…?
It’s been super busy here in Coco HQ which means February certainly seems to have crept up!
Each month Amber tells us what’s hot in the world of florals, and you my lovelies can pin the useful and super pretty guide to the seasonal flowers!
So without further ado… Over to Amber.
Notes From Amber
In February, the hint of Spring is in the air…
Fragrant hyacinths are bountiful in their delicious array of ice cream shades, the wonderfully scented narcissi is a powerful scent to use in a bouquet, the fragrance will carry down the aisle and will, forever more, carry you back to your wedding day… Also, there is a fleeting opportunity to use violets with their distinctive woody floral notes. Sadly this petal comes to an end in February so spoil yourself whilst you can!
Inevitably, February is wrapped up with the romance of Valentines Day, but personally I’d avoid cliched Red Roses – instead opting for alternative shades such as the pillar box red of Anemones or the rich deep red of Amaryllis…
Though these flowers lack scent you can use lush herbs such as Rosemary, Eucalyptus or Mint to add a fresh, warm fragrance foil to these February stars.
