What our Customers Say
5 Stars! Private User said..."We learned about freeze dried petals from a friend and they worked perfectly in our decor as hurricane vase filler, fill in table decor, and flower girl petals. Flyboys' 'bridal budget' section offered lots of color choices, were very affordable, and arrived in better shape than represented in online pictures. The option to get a sample was particularly helpful. We ordered a month in advance, delivery was quick, and after following the easy storage instructions they looked just as great the day of the wedding as the day received." 1.6.2017
Pantone Spring/Summer Color Palette 2018
Even though they come back every year without fail, I find there’s an uncompromising sense of joy that follows the family of robins that has hijacked the ancient crab apple tree in my backyard. They’re infinitely more omniscient than anyone I’ve ever met. The first day their fluttering chirps fill the early morning air always matches with the first day the trees start to pop out tiny green sprouts and dormant flower bushes begin to stretch out their leafy extremities. The weather starts to take a lazy turn. Even on days where the mountains roll a windy chill down into town, the sunlight still seems more warm and pristine than in wintertime.
But, even more exciting than robins or sunshine is the colors. Spring reminds the world of the joy of color, and heralds the coming beauty of the summer months just down the road. Of course, this yearly return to bolder, warmer colors would be incomplete without Pantone guiding the way. Recently, the fashion company released its predictions for spring and summer color trends in 2018, and its choices are absolutely spectacular. While 2017 was a year filled with all shades of blue and green, 2018 is packed with pinks, purples, and the best and brightest complements in between. It will lend to an exciting high wedding season specializing in high-contrast and glamour. Best of all, it will lead to new looks and ideas for upcoming weddings. Just take a look and be inspired!
