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

​Yellow as a Winter Color

Posted by Sarah Johnson |Flyboy Naturals on

Yellow as a Winter Color

Walking out to my car this morning for the commute to work, I was greeted with a blanket of snow up that seeped into my water-absorbent sneakers and a crisp, cold face full of wind. And--after shrieking and running back inside for warmer clothes, of course--realized with a smile that it’s finally the best time of year again.

Winter makes for fantastic seasonal and sensational weddings. It’s difficult to find something new and exciting in it, because everything is a tried and true tradition associated with that seasonal struggle for warmth and comfort. Bright lights and candles, cinnamon and spices, warm drinks and loved ones, all of these things seem as natural to winter as red and green are to Christmas.

But, between the classic holiday traditions, winter weddings have their own twists and tricks that mix up the celebration. Particularly, new colors usually associated with other seasons are gaining popularity during the coldest season of the year. Amidst the recognizable whites, pale blues, and reds, couples are surprising their guests by adding bright, summer yellow to their color palettes.

I’ll admit the idea seemed a little odd at first. After all, winter is supposed to be quiet, peaceful, and even introspective. How could such a bright color work its way into popular winter trends?

It wasn’t until I saw this particular photograph from artist David Clack that I truly understood what these couples were going for:

Instead of being aggressive and harsh the brilliant yellow leaves make this winter wonderland look more crisp and clean. It’s a cheerful twist on romantic winter scenes.

And when it comes to weddings, things get even better.

In this mountainous wedding from Parker, Colorado, yellow is like a quick blast of sunlight across the cool winterscape. It is reminiscent of the stillest days in winter, where the sun shines brightly, but it’s too cold for the snow to melt. As these photos demonstrate, it needn’t be too much yellow. It’s like a hint of lemon juice: a little goes a long way! It makes a glittery, glamorous look that’s perfectly unique to wintertime.

And a sprinkle of yellow isn’t the only solution, either. For their wedding in Oak Glen, California, this couple used several different shades of yellow to make them look like gold glinting in the snowy forest. The colors range from a pale egg yolk shade, to brilliant canary, and to a dark, orangey-gold glow. Simply put, the effect is magnificent.

The best way to incorporate yellow into your winter wedding is to dot your event with expressive, colorful yellow rose petals!

Rose petals are like the best of both worlds for decoration. They’re a beautiful accent that’s subtle, small, and striking, meaning you don’t need a lot in order to have a beautiful effect. However, they’re also bold, beautiful, and an unforgettable touch to weddings. Whether dappling a wooden aisle inside a church or delicately blanketed over snow, yellow rose petals make for a dramatic, memorable winter event.  You will discover so many ways to add them to your big day...seriously; you can never have too many rose petals!

In a way, it makes sense that yellow would be a great winter wedding color. Gold is an extension of yellow, and is heavily associated with the holidays. Particular winter favorites, like Christmas lights and apple cider, feature rich, warm shades of yellow. Even when you look at photography of winter, the sun is generally shining and illuminates the snowy scenery with a pleasant, gleeful glow. Yellow may not be the most popular wedding color for the winter season, but it assuredly provides a unique, comforting, and beautiful alternative for unconventional couples. We offer many yellow rose petal options...which one is your favorite?
