As its name suggests, today’s board was inspired by a strikingly pink poppy, one among an array of eye-popping technicolor blooms arranged by Sarah Winward, the floral visionary behind Honey of a Thousand Flowers. Here we wanted to highlight some of our favorite trends—dip-dyed gowns, marbled details, cakes with clean, minimalistic lines—and show how even the vividest hues can exude a natural feel. Although the shocking brightness of these shades might make you think otherwise, many of them occur in nature. The cocktail, a twist on the classic French 75, gets its vibrant color from blood oranges, while the cake’s fluorescent glaze gets its bold hue from cactus-pear purée.
