Five alternative floral designs for Christmas wreaths

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

It seems like all of a sudden Christmas is upon us and our workshop is filled with the lovely scent of pine, festive branches, decorations and leaves. But Christmas wreaths don’t have to just be pine, baubles, bows and cinnamon sticks. If you fancy a break with the norm there are many different types you can try or buy. At London florist Todich Floral Design we love experimenting with new materials and styles and are always on the look out for unusual twists on traditional floral fashion and designs. And Christmas provides the perfect excuse to get creative as we start installing corporate flowers and decorations at London offices,

Deep purples and blues bring a luxurious feel to designs; cool whites, silvers, icey blues and lilacs help set a winter wonderland mood; pinks worked in with reds provide a softer, romantic vibe; and for a really modern look, a simple monochromatic colour scheme can look striking and chic. In terms of materials, twigs, nuts, mistletoe, berries, rose hips, ferns, herbs and of course flowers are additional natural items you can use, plus things like feathers, lace, pearls, crystal drops and of course various baubles and bows.

So without further ado, here are some of our ideas for alternative Christmas wreath designs:

Wild twig wreath with berries or rose hips: it’s possible to buy ready-made wild twig wreaths now which you can then decorate yourself, but if you want to do it yourself, you can create one using chicken wire and moss. Then make some individual bunches of twigs, before wiring these on in a spiral shape. Adorned simply with some ilex or holly berries, or alternatively plump rosehips and a red bow, this provides a really wintery-feeling, rustic display.

Natural bark & baubles: Less is sometimes more and when we want to create a natural look, our florists often use pieces of bark. These are easy to find at the flower market or in many shops and can quite simply be wired on to a mossed base. Do this first and then simply wire on a selection of different silver baubles too; a mix of matt, glossy and sparkly and then a simple silver bow at the top is just enough to finish of this design.

Purple power: Symbolising power, wealth and nobility, purple brings a luxurious feel to flower arrangements and the bountiful hydrangea, available in a range of colours from light lilac to deeper hues provides the perfect base for a wreath. Add in some roses and black-centred anemones and you really need little more in order to create quite a spectacular, eye-catching design.

A wreath full of baubles: OK, so baubles are pretty traditional, but an entire wreath made just from these gives a different twist. And the best thing about this one is the possibilities are endless! You can choose from thousands of different colours and styles, whether you want to create something shiny and bright or in more muted, understated tones.

Black and white: Nothing quite makes a statement like black and white and this design, created for one of our corporate clients, was made by glueing sprayed pine cones and baubles on to a dry oasis base. Finished off with a luxurious black satin ribbon wrapped several times around the top quarter and then trailed elegantly through and down the back, it certainly made an impact!

Haunting Halloween event flowers in top London hotel

Todich Floral Design turns Mayfair bar in to spooky old mansion house

This Halloween, London florist Todich Floral Design created spectacularly spooky Halloween flowers for an eerie night of fun in one of Mayfair’s top hotel bars. Every week, Todich Floral Design supplies elegant corporate flowers for the hotel and its restaurants, but for Halloween the team there naturally wanted something a bit more ghastly and dark to help set the scene for a scary night in their club.

Todich Floral Design is a specialist in event flowers for private clients, hotels and restaurants, and for these Halloween flowers was tasked to create a dark, moody ‘haunted house’ atmosphere that conjured images of witchcraft, monsters and spooks. Of course it also had to work well with the hotel’s décor, which consists of dark pannelled walls and gilt-edged chairs, chandeliers, columns, rich marble flooring and red carpet.

The team at Todich Floral Design consequently decided to use gothic style, silver standing candleabras and dark urns atop imposing stone columns, mixed with oak leaves, moss and battered old crates to give the impression of a mysterious old dilapidated and abandoned mansion house. These were topped and interspersed with creepily carved pumpkin faces and cobwebs which cast haunting shadows along the walls.

The props and natural materials worked perfectly with the hotel’s interior to create the desired effect, so for one night this luxury bar took on a much more sinister note!

Todich Floral Design can cater for a variety of different event flowers and budgets. To order Halloween flowers online or discuss your requirements for another event, click here to contact the team.

Ooh La la – Summer Colours at the French Brassiere

Friday, June 7th, 2013

The designers who work on the London French brassiere have been very focused on using lush greens which have included lots of seasonal herbs and other lovely plants for the last three designs.  The design team felt this time they needed ‘colour’, to fit with the lovely warm weather that England is having at the moment.  Finger’s crossed it lasts!

We looked at different options and we always like to include some height in the window so you get both impact from inside and create interest from outside of the restaurant.  There were many options and different designs discussed within the team but we finally decided to look for an old ladder which would fit with the rustic theme.  We have a wide range of props which we hire out for wedding and events and we feel it is really important, to use interesting items alongside the flower designs.

The team worked on a range of ideas and finally decided on ‘Ladders and Baskets’.  To create an impact we decided to use seasonal hydrangeas of all different colours placed in different sized baskets.  We felt this would give ‘wow’ factor as soon as guests entered the restaurant. The ladder was also styled with natural looking containers filled with seasonal plants that finished off the design; we also included jasmine which hanged down from the top of the ladder.

We installed the design at the beginning of June and will continue to change the theme; we will keep you updated for the next month.  We are already planning July and have some amazing ideas!!

A royal experience

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

Table arrangement used for the event

We’re very happy and honoured to have been given the chance to decorate a small royal event at end of July, a dinner at the Westbury Hotel, with Prince (and princess) Michael of Kent as guests of honour.

Our part of the job was to create a formal but private atmosphere, befitting the presence of such extinguished individuals. The event was decorated with table arrangements and standing arrangements in four niches.

This was a great experience, where our professional approach was shown in full light. We were very excited and nervous at the same time – expectations were high, but luckily our experience and expertise helped us hit the target dead center.

Flowers in hotels, restaurants and bars

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

One would think the decoration process is finished once the hotel lobby, or restaurant dining room or bar have been built according to the designer’s vision. In fact, many designers take into consideration plants and flowers and anticipate space for them while designing a venue. This is by no means a coincidence. Flowers and plants really do add that final touch to every space, and it’s only natural that they are considered an integral part of every day life. Just take a look at the space that surrounds you. Are there flowers and plants there? If yes, try to imagine how dull that space would look like without them, and if no, try to imagine how alive that space would look like with them.

Hotel lobby and rooms

TFD flowers in a hotelIt’s always a pleasure to see richly decorated hotel lobbies upon arrival. It really helps bring about an atmosphere of serenity and sophistication, not to mention, some very pleasant fragrances. Carefully placed plants and flowers will emphasize the overall look of the interior, and bring life to forgotten corners, that would otherwise look dull and simple. Plants (potted plants, plant walls) placed in strategic spots will help separate certain specific parts of the hotel lobby space from the others, creating an illusion of privacy.

Hotel rooms are a more delicate matter. Properly placed fresh flowers or plants will help create a welcome atmosphere, and add a touch of “home” decor to a room. Many guests request certain kinds of flowers to be placed in their room or suite. If your guests happen to be picky, you can rely on us to fulfill their wishes. We deal with special requests all the time, and it’s always a pleasure and a welcome challenge for us.

Restaurant flowers

TFD flowers in a restaurantMuch like hotels, restaurants benefit a lot by introducing flowers and plants as part of their decoration efforts. When done properly and with style, your guests will notice. Whether it’s a business lunch or romantic dinner, the experience will only be half as strong without flowers and plants to give that special touch to the occasion. Depending on the occasion and season, and the overall theme at the restaurant, we can provide you with a custom tailored solution that your guests will appreciate.

Bar flowers

TFD flower decoration in a barA place for socialising over friendly conversation and a refreshing drink, bars are simply crying for flowers and plants. The relaxed, informal atmosphere of bars demands a special approach to floral decoration. Depending on the theme, flowers and plants can be tailored to add that last layer that will communicate a welcome atmosphere to your guests.

Whether you operate a hotel, a restaurant or a bar, you’ll know that it’s the final touches that will be noticed by your clients. Flowers and plants, as part of the decoration in your venue, are that final touch. They will help you create a feeling of hospitality, sophistication, style and glamour. We at Todich Floral Design especially enjoy decorating hotels, restaurants and bars, and are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure you and your clients get the best floral experience.
