When it comes to decorating your event with flowers, there can definitely be ‘too much of a good thing’. But, if you get it right, you could be wowing your guests with the sheer beauty of your space.
From centrepieces to flower walls and even floral frames, there’s a range of ways that florists and event planners have started rewriting the script in the world where everything blooms. If you’d like to impress your guest list (who wouldn’t?) and create the picture-perfect venue that’ll look just as impressive in photographs as it does in real life… keep reading.
It’s time to feast your eyes on these unique flower ideas that will stun even your harshest critics.
Amaze from the beginning
There’s nothing like walking into an event that makes you say “wow” as soon as you arrive. Get your event off to an incredible start by adding some flowers to your reception area. From framing your seating plans with luxe frames adorned with roses, to creating your entrance sign out of giant moss letters – more is more.
Dripping in Peonies
Create an ethereal jaw dropping space by making sure your venue is dripping with floral goodness. Whether you festoon pillars or beams within the space with elaborate floral installations or you make your own ‘forest’ out of beautiful willow branches, fairy lights and pretty décor, flowers help to create something nothing short of magical.
Don’t forget your guests
Depending on your budget, the venue and the type of event you’re hosting, decorating the guest’s tables with simple yet understated centrepieces can make a real difference. If it’s your wedding and you’re using long tables, an entire runner made from incredible flowers looks both romantic and sets the scene, while smaller bar tables only need small quirky centrepieces to grab guest’s attention. An idea if you’re hosting an event in a club or a restaurant? Hanging installations. Eye grabbing and rare, they’re one way to steal the show.
There’s nothing like a flower wall to take your event to the next level. If you’re hosting a product launch, a press day or even your own birthday party, they’re the perfect way to gain more engagement on your social media channels. And quite simply, who doesn’t love posing with their friends next to something as pretty as a wall full of roses!?
Cakes and cocktails
Almost too pretty to drink (we said almost), adding floral delights to your cakes and cocktails is another pretty and fun way to utilise the blooms of spring! From decorating your fondant with colourful fresh blooms to choosing cocktails that taste just as good as they look, we’re all for it. Our favourite? The Aviation cocktail. This gin-based cocktail has a lavender hue from crème de violette and is garnished with an edible violet too – what’s not to love.
