We here at Currans Flowers are excited for this hue's possibilities, mostly because we love a good purple flower but also because of what the color is supposed to signify. Pantone spends a lot of time coming up with it's selection, meeting with other international color experts and thinking about what color will best embody the spirit of the times as well as look ahead to the future.

Curran's Flowers is well aware of these benefits, as study after study confirms that flowers really do promote better health.

Liberate yourself from the traditional red-and-green decor of the holidays - it's time to take a breather! We here at Curran's Flowers want to remind you to celebrate all colors of the rainbow as you decorate your home for the holidays. Our flowers certainly reflect all of them. Yes, even in winter.

International Floral Distributors has released their annual trend forecast, identifying four floral design approaches that would have anyone (especially us here at Curran's Flowers) excited. It's hard to love one trend more than another, given that they all build on 2018's trend toward brighter, bolder blooms (begin saying your goodbyes to the faded, muted hues of the last couple of years) and blend of free-form flowers with a polished, modern edge.
