Vintage brooches and jewellery can be taken apart and re_designed and worked into a unique hair flower design to match your theme and outfit. Look for small vintage Marcasite clip earrings as these can add depth to the design and surround these with silk or lace and you have a unique yet very cost effective bridal hair flower. Wax flowers are going to be making a statement in 2013 we think. Vintage wax flowers are not always easy to come by but can be a really quirky alternative to your usual bridal headdress ideas.
Traditional red will dominate the Christmas season again this year, but watch for a greater variety of fresh evergreens, berries, roes and accents. Other popular color schemes include darker reds and crimson shades, as well as non_traditional palettes such as purple and turquoise. Textures will continue to play an important role, with flower arrangements featuring everything from pinecones and cedar to intricate handmade ornaments. Expect to see more glass bowls, cubes and vases of every size, especially in colors. With an emphasis on home and hearth, decorator cachepots and family heirloom containers will also play a part.
