Dazzling Ways to Wear Flowers this Summer

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

It’s that time of year when calendars are booked with hen dos and weddings and the glorious weather brings on impromptu garden parties, barbeques and picnics in the park. Wedding flowers of choice this season are often full of colour – such as sumptuous roses, vibrant sunflowers or wildflowers grown especially for the occasion. But flowers aren’t just for display: this summer they’re on clothes, in hair, even painted onto skin! There are many ways to wear flowers for an occasions, whether it’s a relaxed music festival or a classy look for a wedding. A flower crown can really soften a punky outfit, while a floral temporary tattoo creates a truly unique look. Here’s some wearable flower design inspiration to suit any occasion.

pink-wedding-corsages-buttonholes-london-uk-wedding-florist-bridal-bouquets-affordable-prices

Hippy hairstyles. One of the most romantic and bohemian ways to wear flowers this summer is in your hair. Flower crowns are ever popular at festivals, and make beautiful wedding flower looks for brides, bridesmaids or guests. This bold look hearkens back to 70s flower power and is loved by celebrities like Lana del Ray. Crowns can be made of fabric flower and bought ready made, or London florists can create the perfect look. Bridal headdresses can be made to any specifications – whether a ring of blooms or flowers attached to combs for a more subtle style. The wedding flowers for hair can also match corsages and buttonholes, and the bridal bouquet.

Favourite choices are roses and peonies, especially for weddings, but many flowers can be woven together using floral wire to create flower crowns and headdresses. The look can be bold or subtle with a more delicate flower like baby’s breath. Smaller blooms like daises and miniature roses can be woven into the hair, or of course a classic daisy chain makes an instant nostalgic, pretty look for summer. Add a single bloom like an orchid or rose to an up-do, like a bun or chignon, for a subtle and stylish event flower look. They can also be woven into braids or added to a scarf or head wrap.

Bracelets and corsages. Looking for a less bold look? A floral bracelet could be just the ticket. To DIY one, all that’s needed is floral tape and floral wire, ribbon and scissors – and of course, the flowers of choice. Ranuculus are great choices as they’re colourful, small and sturdy – but more delicate blooms could be used instead. A floral bracelet could be lovely for the brides flowers at a wedding – either matching the bouquet or instead of one. Bridesmaids could also wear matching flower bracelets. But the look can equally be very casual depending on the flowers used, and is sure to be a talking point that brightens up any outfit.

Wedding corsages, traditionally worn by the bridal party and matching the brides bouquet, can be worn on the wrist. Romantic looks made of roses and orchids (perhaps with a sprig of greenery) are popular, but tropical flowers or solely greenery are unique alternatives. A bright pink orchid corsage is perfect for a summer wedding, and can be incorporated into white blooms in the bouquets. And a corsage doesn’t have to be subtle: while some will opt for a single bloom and sprig of greenery, a wedding florist can create much more extravagant looks if desired such as long cascades. These could be worn to a wedding – or a very fancy prom!

Make a pressed flower pendant necklace, or a fresh flower chain in a similar way to the flower bracelet. Sturdy stemmed flowers like roses can be sewn together, or a piece of cardboard can be used as the base and flowers, foliage (even moss, succulents and feathers) glued to it to make an amazing statement necklace – that could also be used as a corsage or head piece.

Tattoos. Tattoos are very popular at the moment, and any quick perusal of Pinterest will bring up hundreds of beautiful natural and floral designs. Intricate black and white designs and colourful choices are all popular, and for permanent designs the meaning, as well as the look, may be very important. But if the idea of permanence (and the pain!) is too much, then temporary tattoos could be a great option. No longer just for kids, there are many talent designers creating exquisite temporary tattoo designs inspired by flowers such as daisy chains and Victorian-style floral paintings. Beyonce is a big fan of temporary tattoos – especially metallic styles that are perfect when matched with bikinis or floaty floral dresses. Choose the perfect summer flower design from quirky shops and online marketplaces like Etsy.

Floral fashion. Floral prints are big this summer – from wildflower designs to tropical looks, this summer fashion staple is so versatile. Couture looks were particularly inspired by flower design and nature this season. Chanel’s catwalk displayed a garden party inspiration, Armani showcased bamboo prints and at Dior the look was used on extravagant ball gowns for glamorous, red-carpet styles. Flower patterns can make for a stylish outfit to wear to a wedding, a relaxed dress for the daytime or a poolside statement look. This look appears on everything from the high street to high end this summer including shorts, skirts, dresses and trousers. Even wedding dresses can feature flower patterns!

Jewellery designers have long been inspired by the fragile beauty of flowers –Vogues jewellery editor even released a book about it last year – and this summer is no exception. Floral inspiration can be found in rings, earrings and necklaces in both coloured and simple silver and gold designs. What better way to get into the spirit of summer?

There’s no limit to creativity when it comes to creating wearable flower designs, and London flower shops can help with choosing the best blooms and even creating special looks. Although they won’t last long, there’s something romantic about their fleeting nature and there’s no doubt that the colour, delicacy and vibrancy of real wearable flowers can’t be matched.

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.

Our Living Dress of Plants and Spring flowers for London Fashion Week

Friday, February 27th, 2015

To mark the beginning of London Fashion Week, corporate floral designers at Todich Floral Design have created a show-stopping window display for Brasserie Chavot. During this prestigious fashion event that brings fashion designers, writers and models flocking to the capital, a beautiful floral dress will take centre-stage in the windows of this central London restaurant.

IMG_3188 IMG_3194

Fashioning a living dress. Inspired by the colours and new life of spring the Todich Floral Design team, lead by Todd Z. Todic, have created a living dress made of plants and flowers to adorn the windows of this Michelin starred restaurant. An antique manikin was the start of the creation: a fitting base for the natural adornments. The frame of the dress was fashioned from chicken wire, while natural sphagnum moss was used as a dress filler and fine carpet moss attached to the front of the garment. Then came the embellishments: light pink hydrangeas to add bright but harmonious colour to the greenery and convey the promise of spring, with ivy and ferns winding round the figure.

And the dress doesn’t only serve as a magnificent decoration for the restaurant: herbs have been incorporated into the creation so that chefs can pick and choose them for their meals. They will be literally ‘cooking the dress’ throughout fashion week! The finished result is a truly stunning creation that is bound to have passers-by, whether interested in fashion, flowers or just beautiful things, stopping and staring at this unusual display.

A perfect partnership. Todich Floral Design regularly creates window displays for Brasserie Chavot, who always have a large window display filled with flowers, plants and herbs. With fashion-lovers arriving in London this week to see the best and brightest designers displaying their creations, focused at the neoclassical Somerset House, this is the perfect opportunity to create a display that marries floral design and fashion. Though London Fashion Week is in it’s 61st year, there’s every opportunity for visitors to the capital to still be wowed.

Event florist Todich Floral Design are experts in creating event and corporate floral displays, and understand how to best reflect the artistry and passion of Brasserie Chavot. The restaurant boasts rave reviews and is considered the top-end of fine, French dining in London. A window display to reflect the quality of the food, skill of the chefs, and the special experience of eating at the brassiere was key to creating this floral window display. We’ve been thrilled to work with this restaurant and look forward to designing future, seasonal displays.

Winter wedding flowers and winter flower arrangements

Winter bridal bouquets are best designed as a balance of white and bright colours or soft pastel contrasts. Blue & white design winter wedding bouquets strike this balance perfectly—like in the white ranunculus design. A compact bouquet of creamy white ranunculus decorated with the smaller buds of pink ranunculus and Grape Hyacinth (also known as Muscari); this is one of the most popular winter wedding flowers bouquets. A profusion of tight blossoms and cones plays with the traditional geometry of bridal bouquets. Long stemmed flowers and dusky, green-tones for foliage frame this London wedding flowers theme somewhere between the stark beauty of winter landscape and the fresh promise and

renewal of the New Year. Winter wedding bouquets come in all sorts of shapes and colour themes. Depending on the theme and style preferences for each couple, everything from bridal bouquets to the winter wedding reception flowers can take on a brighter or more subdued look, something that is edgier and bolder, or blended and a part of the entire landscape of the venue. Todich Floral Design has one such edgy yet refined bouquet, made up of blossoming red roses and peach peonies (also great for winter wedding corsages), green and lavender Grape Hyacinth buds and a combination of bright green foliage—flat-leafed and serrated edges.

Mocha roses are another top fashionable wedding colour theme this year. Ivory, cream, pink and orange hues, merengue yellow, and various shades of brown are blended together into some truly beautiful winter wedding flowers. The overall effect is satiny smooth and a crisp outline for each distinctly coloured blossom. And not only does the Mocha colour theme turn out to make great winter bridal bouquets, but they are versatile, equally elegant and fitting for winter wedding corsages and buttonholes. In a combination of rustic and regal, this colour theme is uncommonly warm and striking for winter wedding buttonholes.

It also isn’t surprisingly to find grooms unusually excited about their wedding flowers! Of course bride and groom are the focus of attention, reflected in the care and thoughtful design Todich Floral Design’s florists put into each of their winter wedding bouquets and winter wedding flowers designs.  But equally important, in order to truly transform the venue and create a living memory for bride and groom on their special day, are winter wedding reception flowers. Table designs (like table clothes and place settings, table bouquets and decoration), fishbowl vases, pristine white ceramics and contemporary glass designs are several popular methods for incorporating flowers into the layout and architecture of any venue. It’s only the start of the year, but Todich Floral Design’s London wedding flowers show promise for a fabulous wedding season.

White Wedding Flowers 

White is the word for a winter wedding – so look to the beautiful snowy blooms you could choose to create the perfect bridal bouquets. Full white blooms like roses, ranunculus and peonies are will make the perfect addition to your bouquet – creating a fullness and sumptuousness that you can embellish with other blooms and foliage. With its silvery tones, eucalyptus makes an elegant addition, or you could go for more unusual choices like purple kale flowers or star-shaped succulents. Hydrangeas and anemones are also beautiful choices for your white wedding flowers. For embellishments to winter bridal bouquets think of miniature pine cones, sparkly baubles and glass jewels.

Of course, your bridal flowers could add a dash of colour to the décor and have a natural look- you could have a bouquet of spruce and red berries tied with twine and hessian, or a bouquet incorporating pine cones, winter greenery, berries and roses. Or choose red and white roses with berries and a hint of greenery, tied with black velvet ribbon, for rich, deep coloured bridal bouquets. You could also paint the edges of your blooms with sparkle- gold for red and silver for white – to add that extra special shimmer to your winter wedding flowers.

Wedding Dresses

You could say that every white wedding dress fits the bill for winter wonderland wedding dresses, and whatever you choose will look stunning on the day. But if you want to wrap up from the chill, you could incorporate a faux fur stole or cape to create a period-drama look for your dress, and choose bridesmaids stoles to match their dresses. Sparkly nails for the bride and bridesmaids will also jazz up the bridal bouquets and will look lovely in photos.

Lace and sparkle certainly fit the bill for the dress of a winter bride, and these can be incorporated into the hairstyles too. And a while a white wedding flowers will create a harmonious look, a contrast of deep purple (such as calla lilies or irises) or green foliage and red berries for bridal bouquets will create a striking look. You could choose to dress your bridesmaids in shimmer and sparkle (whether gold, silver or off-white) but dark colours such as purple, black and dark red will also work beautifully for a winter wedding.

Wedding Floral Decorations

There are so many possibilities for decorations for your winter wonderland wedding theme. Whether your reception is in a hotel, a country house set in beautiful grounds, a castle or a garden, winter wonderland wedding venues offer plenty of inspiration for creating a magical setting for your marriage. Start creating the magic at the ceremony, and dot the aisle with lanterns or candles. You could add a scattering of snow, silver baubles, and even line the aisle with sparkly winter trees or wind fairy lights around trees or branches. This is also a wonderful idea for the outside of the venue – add glittery lights to the trees as guests arrive to set the scene.

Wedding flowers for a winter wedding are traditionally white, and you may choose for the centrepieces and floral decorations at the reception to match the brides and bridal bouquets. Roses, lilies and ranunculus are all beautiful choices and can be made into elaborate displays or displayed in glass vases for a simpler but nonetheless elegant look. Display your flowers in silver or sparkling vessels, or fill vases with baubles. You can even add a silvery finish to your blooms, or add gold or silver painted foliage to floral displays.

Winter wonderland wedding colours take inspiration from the surroundings of the season: white, silver and sparkle to reflect the twinkling frost, or warmers shades of green and red like the evergreens and berries that adorn gardens and forests this time of year. Of course, you can mix them up for your winter wonderland wedding decorating: offset white and silver decorations, white chairs and tablecloths with vibrant green and red floral centrepieces.

Take a cue from the natural surroundings for your winter wonderland wedding decorations and stand your place settings in pine cones; add a sprig of pine, holly or a coil of rosemary to napkins; or write guests names on baubles – both a lovely surprise and a favour to take home! Candles on tables are a must to create the perfect atmosphere – and these can be small candles dotted over the tables or larger white ones that can be incorporated into centrepieces. Or your centrepieces could be miniature trees or displays of winter branches, embellished with jewels hanging like icicles or coiled with fairy lights.

If you’re looking for crimson-themed winter wonderland decorating ideas, consider using red flowers like roses, gerberas, amaryllis or tulips in your displays, or add red berries and holly to centrepieces. You could fill vases with red baubles, or add them to a bowl of water topped with floating candles for a beautiful embellishment on tables.

Restaurant Flower Trends for Autumn

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

Displaying flowers in your bar or restaurant are the perfect way to create a welcoming atmo- sphere and add colour to your décor. Flowers displayed at the entrance set the tone and flo- wers on tables, carefully arranged so as not be intrusive, are a wonderful addition to your customer’s experience. Your restaurant flowers can be anything you want them to be, and the team of expert restaurant florists at Todich Flower Design are on hand to create the perfect arrangements to enhance your bar or restaurant.

You may have in mind the exact kinds of restaurant plants or flowers to complement your eatery, or you could take inspiration from the current trends in restaurant flower design. We’ve taken some of the key flower trends of 2014 and looked at them with particular focus on autumnal ideas to bring colour and opulence to interior design as the shorter days draw in. Take a look at these for inspiration – whether you run a high-end restaurant or a relaxed gastro-pub, these trends can be adapted to suit any establishment.

1157426_10151662753273897_1111841883_nRustic richness The trend for bri- nging the outdoors in has been key throughout 2014, and the autumn months offer no end of inspiration to creating rustic displays and outdoor additions to your flowers. As the leaves turn spectacular shades of red and gold, conkers litter the ground and bright red berries dot the trees, you can look to Mother Nature for ideas for your arrangements. Restaurant florists in London will be able to help you create the perfect displays of rustic richness for receptions, bars and tables.

Berries like rosehips and hyperi- cums are wonderful additions to bouquets of roses, dahlias or chrysanthemums – which you can find in autumn shades of yellow and red. Don’t be afraid to add fruits like apples or grapes to your flower displays at your restaurant or bar’s entrance. This is the season of richness and abundance, and brightly coloured fruits can perfectly complement a display of vibrant blooms. You could even add chillies for an exotic edge, still keeping with the rich tones of autumn. Bark and twigs can be added to flower design and work well for attention-grabbing welcome displays and more discreet table flowers. Bark can be wrapped around stems, or pieces added to an arrangement. You could even incorporate autumn branches and leaves which of course can be found in a dozen different beautiful shades.

Vintage revival 1920s Gatsby-era glamour was a key interior design and floral trend for 2014, and the opulence of Autumn makes it perfect choice for your restaurant or bar flowers design. Metallics are a particular focus for this trend and flower vessels in silver, gold or bronze will add real decadence to your interior design. Roses and lilies make a great choice to fit with this trend – choose elegant white, or bring a splash of colour with red or pink blooms. Roses are also available in muted shades of mauve, off-white and pale yellow which will bring a real old-glamour feel to your interior design.

Photoshoot-6-001_900If the décor of your bar or resta- urant is more rustic, then decadent blooms will look unique and unusual in vintage vessels like antique coffee pots or mismatched glass bottles and jars. Tea cups are also a popular way to display flower heads on tables, or to grow succulent plants in. Fishbowl vases are also a beautiful way to display your flower arrangements – both at the entrance to your bar or restaurant or on tables.

Autumn abundance – Keats descri- bed it as a ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’, and autumn certainly is a time of richness and abundance. Celebrate this in your restaurant design by incorporating seasonal pumpkins and squashes into your display (especially appro- priate at Halloween!), or you could even hollow the gourds out and use them as vessels for your flowers.

An bountiful arrangement at the end of the bar or reception is the perfect way to greet your guests, and an autumnal display of rich oranges, reds and yellows is sure set the right tone. Whether you’re looking for an elegant, high-class look or a more rustic feel, the experts at restaurant florists Todich Flower Design can recommend the flowers and design to suit your bar or restaurant.

Roses are a great choice as they are available in so many shades – including autumnal oranges and reds. Make a statement with a bountiful bouquet at the entrance to your bar or restaurant, and choose single roses snipped near the top of the stem for tables. Dahlias are sumptuous blooms that make great flowers for restaurants. They also bloom in lots of different shades, so you can choose autumn colours or go for bright pinks and purples.

482395_10151482327088897_1607675688_nColour celebration – You don’t have to stick with the traditional autumnal colours to be on-trend this season: a vibrant rainbow of different shades has been a key look in flowers for this year. The flowers available this time of year come in an array of different colours, so you can create a bright display to greet guests and add splashes of colour to tables.

Roses, dahlias, gerberas and orchids are available in dozens of bright shades so you can choose a single strong colour or mix it up. Blue has been very popular in interior design this year, but if you feel blue flowers may be too cool for an inviting restaurant, you could always incorporate this into the design by choosing blue vases, like vintage bottles or willow-pattern cups to keep with the 1920s glamour trend.

There’s no doubt that both the colours and richness of autumn and the ideas in these flower trends for 2014 offer plenty of inspiration for your restaurant or bar flower design, and can also work for hotel receptions. Todich Flower Design will be able to give you even more ideas and, as experts in corporate flowers, will work with you to create the exact look you need to create the perfect experience for your guests.

Now we’re going to delve into how to make sense of some the trickier, more nuanced details and underlying meanings of wedding flowers arrangements, especially for the upcoming 2015 season. So get ready to see what’s trending! This way you’ll be able to avoid any flower faux pas, and make sure you pull off your absolute dream wedding into a cohesive, well designed finish. The first stop on our list is that of vintage wedding flowers

Vintage Wedding Flowers

This type of classically styled, elegant wedding décor is still very popular. When you think of weddings with a vintage theme there is going to be lots of thin lace, pearls, feathers, brooches and ivied columns. Lavender and white table clothes are wonderful choices. Heritage rose are second to none when it comes to selecting vintage wedding flowers—popular colours and variants on shades are dusky pinks and sweet corals, eye-catching thulian, antique peach, and lavish almond. Green foliage, white (to complement the lace), and yellow are excellent ways to balance pink hues. Other types of blossoms apart from roses—but equally refined—are gerberas, carnations and peonies. Sweet Williams are also delightful!

Rustic Wedding Flowers

A rustic wedding flowers the- me will be somewhat remini- scent of the vintage style. But the key difference is in that, while it remains somewhat nostalgic and unpolished, it’s very much bucolic. This emphasis on nature remains the biggest factor in rustic wedding flowers and similarly styled weddings, regardless of whether or not the ceremony is held in- or outdoors. The types of décor are often full of whimsy, delight and airiness. Think tulips and hyacinths, cascades and arrays of green ivy, spots of bright daises. Giant sunflowers are also a great way to mix up the dainty and more childish aspect of smaller and more delicate flowers, while losing none of the colour power, brightness or beauty. Tables spotted with French lavender or using succulents for any man’s boutonniere will make for a nice country chic look. For the ladies aiming for the rustic style, they can’t go wrong with flower headdresses or long stemmed flowers in bridal bouquets. Still need some rustic accents? Try a little burlap, twine or the muted flair of an aged ribbon.

Flamboyant Wedding Flowers

Flamboyance is all about making a scene. It’s grandiose, opulent, lavish in all aspects of wedding décor. In other words, it’s as far as you can get from the toned down luxury of the rustic and vintage styled weddings. Instead, this livened up wedding is likely to employ lots of contemporary centrepieces, slim glass vases, busy and exotic flower arrangements, and candles of varying height. True extravagance! Flower arrangements often use calla lilies, lush velvet roses, sensuous flowers such as anthuriums and flowers of paradise, orchids and blue roses. Flowers used around the base of these arrangements are better as ivory or white, to balance the colour array above. A few more affluent additions: any gold or brass ornaments, as well as rhinestones and crystals scattered across tables or draped over candelabra.

No matter what type of wedding and theme you prefer, remember that above all it’s harmony that matters. Colour, arrangement styles, personal tastes must blend together for a truly wonderful wedding. More than simple coordination, which only makes sure that nothing clashes, achieving true harmony amplifies the entire effect of your wedding décor. Just like the happy couple, it should be clear that every element is meant to be.

Season’s Best Hotel and Private Event Floral Design

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Private event floral design and event flower design is a year round endeavor. Every event florist knows that each season is unique, with flowers specific to festivals and holiday celebrations, or birthday flowers attached to certain months. Corporate florists and specialists in hotel flowers or hotel plants also use their flower arrangements and floral art to mirror moods created by weather and landscape, themes unique to special occasions (like new or lasting love at a wedding or anniversary), and embody the spirit of a particular season.

Autumn floral arrangements - Restaurant flowers and hotel flowers london UK by top event florist and corporate florist in London Todich Floral Design LTDWhen people think of event flowers or private events—including expert florists and floral designers—they are often searching for a design that is bold yet elegant, or subdued and perhaps slightly provocative to the eye. This can be achieved through balance of colour and texture; different petal shapes, method of arrangement, foliage, and complimentary colours (magenta and pinks, yellow and white, red roses in a brown wicker basket, or with seasonal and green foliage). Event florists in London seek to evoke or inspire a particular mood without the event flowers starkly standing out, or becoming garish, even, and ultimately detract from the overall effect of the private event. It takes skill, experience and true dedication to floral art as well as event floral design to excel and stir up excitement for any type of customer or occasion—be it a private event, a business interested in corporate displays or office flowers, or clients in the hospitality industry, interested in flowers for restaurants or hotels.

Whether you come to us as a restaurant florist, corporate florist, or event florist, every single surface is an opportunity. Table centrepieces, table runners, chairs, bridal bouquets, buttonholes and corsages are all ways to incorporate flower colours and unique patterns into your event, to beautify and commemorate the occasion for everyone who is present.Todich Floral Design is an event florist in London that specializes in a variety of different events, ranging from private events to corporate displays. Corporate plants and office flowers, wedding flowers, party event flowers, Christmas decorations and cultural flower arrangements are just some of the different varieties of flower design we specialize in. No matter type of event or type of flower arrangement you choose, however, they guarantee to brighten up the room in which they are displayed, add joy to a given occasion or enliven the space and experience for whomever is passing by.

There are some common conceptions—and possible misconceptions—when it comes to event flower design. Because the spring and summer months are so much brighter, warmer and a little more buoyant when it comes to the effect they have on our mood, people often gravitate toward summer and spring seasonal flowers, or exotic arrangements and themes in event floral design. Think of tulip, calla lilies and hydrangea flower arrangements, found in spring bouquets, or gerberas daisies and sunflowers in the summertime. These are beautiful and special aesthetically, to be sure, but the discerning, creative eye of event florists can find what’s pleasing, and ways to accentuate the shades and shapes of different flowers, in any type of seasonal arrangement.

Autumn flower design. Restauran and bar flowers. Event flowers and corporate flower arrangements. Hotel flowers and hotel plants by Todich Floral Design LTDThe truth is that autumn—and soon to be winter—have seasonal themes and floral designs which are just as wonderful as those belonging to the brighter and warmer months. And, perhaps surprisingly for some, much of the familiar floral art and same types of blossoms from summer or spring can be seen in autumn and winter flower arrangements. Colours, textures and the mood evoked by a bouquet, centrepiece or corporate display, can be repurposed within each season. The most innovative florists behind event flower design have a way of incorporating colour and theme into fresh, new pieces that match every event, setting or special occasion.

Autumn is full of warm colours—orange, reds and yellows—and earthy tones, especially in late September and early October. Bi-color roses blend the different elements of a warm palette. Red or yellow chrysanthemums in full bloom provide a distinct, ruffled texture for any corporate display, bouquet, or a striking first greeting for patrons (when it comes to restaurant plants and hotel flowers). Sunflowers and gerberas daisies combine the best of both worlds. Sunflowers, with their large, feathered yellow petals and, by contrast, a dark, solid centre, balance the colours and the textures of autumn. The earthier colours of autumn, mostly browns and dark greens, can be emphasized in wicker basket arrangements and dried flower arrangements—which mimic the crisp, idyllic look and leaves that have fallen from trees. They also use autumn foliage such as ivy and green buds. Some autumn flower arrangements even use golden wheat, multicoloured maize husks (yellow and black, or maroon and brown), or birds’ feathers to simultaneously accentuate the earth tones and brighten the overall effect of the arrangement.

Autumn arrangementsAnother seasonally appropriate and popular way to bring out autumnal themes in flower arrangements is to trade out the traditional vase or flower bouquet for something that is more rustic in style. Woven baskets, hollowed out pumpkins or gourds, and cornucopia styled holders can achieve this effect and make great centrepieces or table decoration. These pieces evoke the ideas and motifs of a warm hearth, joyfulness and abundance, and the harvest season. Wide tallow candles, pumpkin scented candles, and in-season fruits, such as brown pears or apples, also work well in autumn arrangements, and offer a more stimulating experience, beyond the visual, through the opportunity to taste and smell.

At Todich Floral Design, we take advantage of the wide-ranging autumn colours and unique foliage for the season, coming up with the best floral design for any event, be it private, personal or professional, and in all types of flower displays and designs. Our event flowers are a gorgeous enhancement and addition for any occasion!
