Spring Floral Fashion: Cherry Blossom and Branch Arrangements

Branches with flower blossoms are a way to scaffold, to structure, to frame and help set the tone and mood for your event. Sweet blossoms will also fill the surrounding area with their lovely fragrance. There are several varieties of spring branches and blossoms that you can use in decor and to accentuate the spring decorations for your event: peach blossoms, plum blossoms, cherry blossoms and apple blossoms. Their pink and white hues, with crepe thin delicate petals, are the perfect backdrop and welcome for people as they arrive.

Use branches in simple to elaborate table centrepieces, on their own, or also in combination with other floral arrangements.

Hanging Spring Flower Arrangements

Spring is a season of growth, of abundance and profusion, of green cascades and a touch of wild, energetic playfulness. Hanging floral fashions and arrangements help you to capture and present this spring fundamental. Outdoor events—garden parties, cocktail receptions, wedding celebrations—do well to decorate with flowers, vines and greenery draped over the edges of tables, hanging from balconies, on trellises, from archways and in entrances.

DIY Table Flowers and Floral Centrepieces for Events

Put together your own floral centrepieces, for events big and small, by picking out two or three varieties of flowers at your local florist. Select at least one large, full and prominent bloom—such as peonies, roses or lilies—to act as the focal point of your flower arrangement. Smaller filler flowers and accentuating notes can be achieved with asters, Queen Anne's lace, or in between blossoms, like posies and ranunculus—small in stature but no less striking than larger blooms.

Chair Flowers: Beautiful Flower Decorations Stand Out!

Sitting or standing, guests will be able to appreciate fine floral decorations for their chairs, whether they at the table or watching from across the ballroom.
Flower wreaths hung from the backs of chairs, strung with spring roses or daisies, for example, are a great way to jazz up your event flowers. So are individual blossoms tied with satin ribbon, or a combination of flowers and sheer linen or lace: perfectly draped to suggest comfort, extravagance and allure.

Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to get creative, whether it’s decorating the home or installing corporate flowers to bring plenty of cheer to the office.

Holly. This season’s traditional colours of green and red stem from the native Christmas Holly plant.

Mistletoe. Another of many Christmas flowers, mistletoe, a parasitic green and white plant, is an integral part of a fun pre-Christmas tradition. Often placed in a high place, usually above a door, two people are encouraged to kiss, if stood under it at the same time. Other than playing an interesting role, mistletoe also makes fantastic Christmas plants to decorate the home with and shine within Christmas flower arrangements.

Ivy. A symbol of women, Ivy is strongly linked to Christmas and creates a magnificent centrepiece when combined with holly. Tradition has it, Ivy is said to bring great luck and happiness to relationships. In addition, Ivy represents a number of things, symbolising true love, undying affection and eternity, making it a fitting flower for a loved one.

The Christmas Rose. A truly English flower, and universal symbol of love, the Christmas rose is traditionally red. Christmas roses are associated with the story of the shepherds who saw three wise men taking their gifts to baby Jesus. The shepherds had no gift to offer until an angel appeared and pushed aside some snow to reveal an exquisite red rose. Roses make striking centrepieces, decorates the home beautifully or as gifts for loved ones.

Floral Table Arrangements for Summer Events

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Summer is the season of warm evenings, golden light and an abundance of colourful blooms to choose for wedding flower decorations and to adorn private events. As well as weddings, there are garden parties, birthdays, baby showers and many other reasons to celebrate. Maybe even to just celebrate the sunny summer days! London florists have wonderful options for table displays this time of year – whether the occasion calls for a more natural, low-key look or glamorous arrangements. From garden flowers like delphiniums and cornflowers, to classic peonies and roses, there is an abundance of choice for floral table arrangements this time of year.

Rustic Garden Looks

Sweet Williams are delightful little flowers available in early summer. In colours of pink, purple, red and white, their frilled, velvety petals and green fronds make them perfect for creating rustic, garden looks for private events. These aren’t showy flowers, so rather than table centrepieces small bouquets could be dotted down a table in mismatched jars and bottles to act as adornments or place settings. These fragrant flowers also make lovely bridal wedding bouquets, so Sweet William table decorations for wedding flowers could be the perfect complement to the bride’s posy choice.

Cornflowers are also ideal for creating a rustic, pretty event flower look. Add them to a glass vase for a simple centrepiece at summer party, or decorate tables with small vases of these blue flowers. Dahlias, daisies and herbs like lavender can be used in similar ways. Cornflowers are also wonderful paired with long-stemmed larkspurs and delphiniums which can be used together to create harmonious displays of pinks, blues, purples and white – an ideal rustic event flower design centrepiece. Use a glass vase or a jug or even a watering can for a quirky look.

Don’t be afraid to create a party or wedding flower centrepiece that spills over the table to create a truly bountiful look. Add full, fragrant blooms like hydrangeas, geraniums and delphiniums to a pitcher or tureen at the centre of guests’ tables and dot smaller vases around the centrepiece for a full and colourful display. These flowers are available in many shades – from dark purples and pinks to pale greens, peach and white – so any look for the occasion can be created.

Glamour and Abundance

Summer is the time of year when wedding florists are called upon to create glamorous floral displays for the ceremony venue and wedding reception, including table flower arrangements. Rich, bright colours are the order of the day – with beautiful light in this warm season able to really showcase event floral design for guests to enjoy.

A silver tureen filled with candy-coloured flowers including roses, hyacinths and hydrangeas makes for a decadent floral centrepiece. Hydrangeas are a great choice for summer table decorations and add texture and fullness to bouquets. A bouquet of single coloured hydrangeas – say just white or pure pink – can create a truly elegant look for tables at events. Alternatively, incorporate other textures and colours by using flowers like roses, baby’s breath and peonies. Silvery eucalyptus leaves also work well in hydrangea arrangements, as do longer branches and twigs to create a textural feel.

Roses are perfect for weddings and any other special occasion. With their wide range of colours and shapes, these classic flowers can be used to create many different looks – whether incorporated into bouquets with other flowers or displayed on their own. Single roses in mini glass vases make great wedding flower decorations for guests’ tables and can be used as place settings. Choose colours that match the wedding party bouquets. For a soft, romantic look, choose paler shades of roses for wedding flower arrangements – like peach, mauve, white and dusty pink. When delicate foliage is added, these displays will add beauty and glamour to the proceedings in a subtle way.

Peonies are another flower available at this time of year and with their full shape and vibrant colours, another perfect choice for the glamorous look. Like roses, they range in colour from soft pinks to deep reds and can be used to create so many floral designs – from romantic, to high-end and casual. They work very well with roses and green embellishments. They can be added to table budvases too – and London florists can create these using many different flowers including orchids, roses and dahlias. These are perfect for restaurants but also work well at weddings and other private events where little details are very important.

Green Goddess

Summertime is of course a season of colour and flowers – but there are also plenty of green options to make beautiful table centrepieces. Bring the woodland to the table and use natural elements like fern, moss, branches and leaves to create centrepieces and decorations. Ornamental kale is also a great option for a quirky and on-trend look. Looking much like a flower and available in shades of green, purple and white, this is often a favourite for wedding flower bouquets and can also be incorporated into table displays at weddings and other private events. White kale flowers are paired with bright pink roses and greenery in a delightful basket arrangement that is perfect for garden parties on indoor dos with a rustic feel.

Incorporate natural elements like moss, bark, twigs and pebbles into table displays – especially for laid-back dos like garden parties or a woodland wedding. Ivy can be trailed down the centre of tables and even miniature trees can be displayed on tables for decoration. For a more exotic look, consider palm leaves either on their own or paired with blooms like orchids and bird-of-paradise flowers. Ever-popular succulents make lovely place settings and can also double as favours – whether in mini vases or as potted plants with name tags attached. With their soft shades of green, succulents also work well in floral displays using pastel shades of pink, purple and white. Take a look at more table centre flowers to be inspired for summer parties.
