Classic Blue: Pantone Colour of the Year 2020

Pantone has named its highly anticipated Colour of the Year for 2020 and we could not be more excited.

Tranquil, dependable and enduring, Classic Blue is set to dominate the world of design in 2020 and, while sure to be reflected in our interiors and wardrobes, the colour of the moment won’t go unnoticed by florists either. 

Given the focus on well-being in 2019, Pantone’s colour of choice for 2020 isn’t entirely unexpected. Classic Blue is wonderfully calming with blue hues being intrinsically linked with a focused mind, sense of clarity and calm.

What flowers lend themselves to the Pantone Colour of the Year?

There aren’t many true blue flowers in nature but that doesn’t matter – not when the stems are as gorgeous as these; delphiniums, agapanthus, scabious, cornflowers,  and hyacinths. of course there's hydrangea too – always a firm favourite in the summer, its pretty petals range from china blue to a deep midnight hue (the strength of the colour blue varies depending on the acidity of the soil they are grown in).

You can be grateful to others for a whole range of different things, or even grateful to yourself for having a great week (self-care is very important!). It’s fair to say that 2020 really hasn’t panned out how we expected. But we’d like to take the opportunity to thank you, our customers and friends, for being so supportive during these unusual times. We are so grateful for your continued loyalty and we are so thankful to be sharing our passion with you again.

 Sometimes you will see a Teddy Bear, and you’ll just know. You can see their personality and character in their face – the bear has chosen you! They are a companion, a household mascot and a comforting friend when we need someone to talk to - Teddy Bears make great listeners! They are a gift that people cherish, will keep for a lifetime, and even pass on to their children. It doesn’t matter who you buy one for, or for what occasion, Teddy Bears never go out of fashion.
