Colour Palette: Ranunculus

In need of cheering up due to this miserable winter weather, I’ve put together (with a little help from the Pantone app), a colour palette for the beautiful Ranunculus flowers. The feminine tones are rich, pretty and bashful. The fuchsias, raspberry and sorbet pink colours all tone together to create a punchy palette. I’ve also looked at how these stunning blooms can be used within wedding bouquets or centre pieces.


Below is such a pretty example of using just one colour flower within a floral centrepiece. Because the flower has many layers and intricate details, the colour variations are already there and there is no need to crowd this with another flower to fight for attention.

I love how the flowers are complimented with the timber crate and blue tones of the glass vases. So pretty and elegant.

This Ranunculus bouquet is so cheerful and fun. The soft pinks put together with the vibrant peaches create a definite wow factor. Adding the delicate white tones really brings more of a refined element making it fun yet classy. The shape of the bouquet mirrors the roundness of the Ranunculus perfectly. In the background you can just see a glimpse of a navy and white ribbon for an extra fun and personalised element.

Moving onto probably my favourite of all three examples, this centrepiece below has adopted a more rustic and relaxed feel. The Ranunculus is the feature flower and still stands proud as the focal point and sets the tone for the colour palette. Nestled into the arrangement are various foliages and smaller flowers. These act as a platform for the Ranunculus to really stand on. I love the laid back approach to this style and it really emphasises how versatile the Ranunculus flower can be.
