It seems peach is a running theme this week…
Over to the lady herself…
Notes from Amber
From the perfectly named ‘Cafe au Lait’ with its petals the colour of the froth on a cappuccino to the brightest, boldest ‘Babylon Magenta’ whose colouring verges on the fluorescent so vibrant is it, my Floral Highlight for July would have to be the dahlia.
It makes me smile just to write that as, until last year, I was a true floral snob, believing dahlias to be solely the garish poms-poms reminiscent of Christmas decorations of old; how wrong I was!
With a colour palette that extends from pure white through gradients of yellow, every shade of pink, a rich array of reds that touch on dramatic crimson black to the aforementioned orange pom-poms there are dahlias which either blend subtly or contrast strikingly with every bridal colour scheme.
So if you are getting married in July, put your floral prejudices aside and consider the humble dahlia.
It’s really interesting to read about Amber’s relationship with the dahlia as this is the flower I see of whenever I think of Amber Persia | Flowers & Events, hop across to her delicious website and you’ll see what I mean!
This is absolutely one of my fave florals.
So, are you looking for the unusual for your flowers…?
What are your thoughts on the humble dahlia…?
Lots of love…
