Cornflower Blue
Although most people don’t usually associate May with the color blue, we feel cornflower blue is a beautiful introduction to summer. It can be made as vibrant as you like or in pastel shades due to its natural variation in color, giving brides more flexibility on the color and an easy choice of bouquet flowers.
