A festival style essential is and will always be flowers. Many of the outdoor festivals that we go to today were inspired by the infamous Woodstock music festival that took place in 1969. Serving as the the dawn of the “hippie” and the “flower power” generation, Woodstock gave us trends that are still very prevalent.
