Back from 'the windy city', Chicago! Had a great time attending The Special Event 2013 conference. I was inspired by the speakers, trade show, and most of all the spectacular city itself. The citys cape is magnificent, the food divine, and the cold crisp air was refreshing.
My favorite module while at this inspiring conference was Flower Trends Forecast 2013. The speakers for this seminar were two IFD certified and award winning event designers Bill Schaffer and Kristine Kratt. Their creativity and understanding of floral design was brilliant. I left this seminar feeling motivated and energized for the upcoming wedding season.
They shared with us four dinstinct styles that they feel will be the top trends for this year.
Eco Chic: organic materials presented in a modern way
Heirloom: embracing the past but in a romantic manner that provides a modern feel
Enchanted: Rich jewel tones with exotic elements of fairytale and whimsical storybooks.
Personality palette: Ignite our emotions and reflect our individuality and express our bright playful side

We at Jane Productions are excited to implement these designs into our events here in Southern Oregon.
Southern Oregon weddings.... look out! I can see these design being used from the bride's bouquet to the centerpieces. We are about to have a fun season in 2013!!
