Located inside the iconic Rittenhouse Hotel, Evantine Design is known for creating elegant weddings with that touch of glamour brides strive to find. But, they aren’t just about weddings. Evantine also creates floral designs for events like the opening of the Kimmel Center, society galas, and product launches.
The Trend: “Trends for spring include the return of the extravagant wedding, with sophisticated color palettes such as all white flowers with crystals, mirrors, and accents of white against the room," says President of Evantine Design Brian Kappra. 7500 Wheeler St., 215-492-8545
Barbara King is best known for her breathtaking designs each year at the Philadelphia Flower Show, but her day-to-day work is just as amazing—with over 40 years in the flower business, King creates one-of-a-kind floral displays for any event, from weddings to private homes for the holidays.
The Trend: "One of the hottest looks this spring is spring bulbs in vases, like a hyacinth or tulip with the bulb still attached,” says King. “Various heights spilling down a table or a cluster of different vases in the center of a table—tablescapes are also very hot.” 503 W. Lancaster Ave, 610-687-5566
Although Beautiful Blooms does everything from event planning to custom installations, it truly shines through its floral designs. From the smallest details to lavish centerpieces, the florists use the freshest blooms to create a vision that is all your own.
The Trend: "While blush and champagne have been huge the past few years and are still very popular, the trend is shifting to saturated colors and rich jewel tones,” says Jackie Baik of Beautiful Blooms. “With the Pantone color of the year being Marsala, I am finding brides gravitating towards rich wine tones and not being afraid to have fun with color.” 1016 New Market St., 215-925-9300
Known for keen attention to detail and great customer service, Robertson’s has been making local weddings and events more gorgeous for 85 years. Check out its retail stores in Chestnut Hill and Bryn Mawr or set up a consultation for custom designs.
The Trend: “A big spring floral trend is the use of pinks and corals,” says Jennifer Lima of Robertson’s Flowers. “I am seeing a huge trend in the combination of those softer pink tones accented with golds and metallics.”
With over 50 years in the business, Carl Alan has become a staple in Philly’s floral scene. And with a new design studio in Center City, the team is even more hands-on in creating the perfect arrangements for weddings and events in and around the city.
The Trend: "Trailing elements are the hottest thing in bridal bouquets this spring,” says Carl Alan consultant Pamela Primrose. “Fresh hanging amaranthus, strung pearls dripping down, or long ribbon tendrils all give the element of drama and romance without having a bulky cascading bouquet."
