Todich Floral Design, Inspired by the Caribbean and the Rose Festival

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

The natural world is in full bloom. The plants are green, the sun is bright and our flowers are displaying a vast array of colours. The natural artistry of the earth’s flowers is in full effect for the eye to see. It seems the flowers of London, are getting ready for the annual spectacle that is carnival. A spectacle that encapsulates the Caribbean flavour that is full of drama, colour, and exuberance and fun.  Thus in planning for the fun and vibrancy of the carnival season, allow us at Todich Floral Design and our event florist in London to create a feel of the Caribbean, by using our event floral design team.

As a premier London floral company, we can take inspiration from all parts of the Caribbean in our events floral designs. The differing islands are rife with individual culture and traditions. As a result we can use many differing colours in our event flowers to inspire the feel of Caribbean. The use of turquoise in your colour scheme will convey the calmness of the Caribbean seas. The use of magenta in your roses, as part of your event flower design, can be inspired by the rose festival of St Lucia. The rose festival of St Lucia actively celebrates the properties of the rose and its associated societies, with singing dancing and music. Therefore at Todich Floral Design we can take the rose flower and use it as a part of a central party floral theme designed for your private event.

The Caribbean is full of life, verve and colour. It is the ideal place to take inspiration from. As a result, we at Todich Floral Design, using our events florists, can create an inspired theme that has all the elements of the Caribbean, which you can display.

The richness of the greens, oranges, turquoises, yellows and pinks used in the costumes of the parades of carnival, demonstrates how colour plays a key component when designing your Caribbean themed event. By using our event florist in London, we can create event floral designs that are based upon a fun but lively theme. In using our event florist London service, we can use event flowers to create a fun party atmosphere.

In using floral celebrations inspired by the Caribbean, our event florists can design flowers that are rife in colour, expressing the vibrancy of the Caribbean islands. By using our local floral suppliers from Covent Garden flower market, we may even be able to design an exotic floral arrangement that incorporates the use of roses to convey the exotic feel the Caribbean can inspire. At Todich Floral Design, we always aim to think outside the box. Our event florists have the skills and know how, to interpret ideas into functional event floral designs, which will garner amazement and appreciation. By using a Caribbean theme, or inspiration we can tailor our designs to create atmosphere, and character within your private setting.

As carnival (Notting Hill) is upon us very soon, let us get you ready. We can help your create an event that will be full of atmosphere. Your private event will not be lacking of drama, through the use floral designs, and will trigger memories of how exotic and lively the Caribbean can be.

At Todich Floral Designs, using roses as part of a Caribbean theme is an ideal form of communication. For not only do roses comes in various shades and sizes, they convey the passion and love that individuals can feel, when visiting the Caribbean islands. They are a nation of people that friendly on approach and welcoming to those that visits their country. The beauty of the islands can be symbolized in the beauty of a rose petal. The variety of shades can reflect the Jamaican motto of: ‘out of many people is one nation’. The Caribbean similar to roses is a melting pot of colour that grows in different conditions and environments. Thus by using roses our event florists can create symbolisms between the Caribbean islands and flowers, whilst retaining a sense of fun.

Flower inspiration for rustic weddings by top London floral sylists and wedding florists

When you think of ‘rustic’ the first things that come to mind may be a remote log cabin or a barn on a farm, but you don’t have to be getting married in the middle of nowhere to go with this wedding theme. Reflecting a growing desire among people to reconnect with nature and towards more natural styled wedding flowers, many brides are now choosing a rustic wedding flowers theme. Nature is a great resource for decorating ideas and can also allow the wedding to include some of the groom’s tastes too.

Going ‘rustic’ doesn’t have to mean checkered tablecloths and lots of wood. Containers such as ceramic or metal milk churns and jugs can be incorporated in wedding reception arrangements, plus plant pots, crates, jars and items such as weathered old furniture, lanterns, suitcases, ladders, watering cans, wheelbarrows or bicycles. Lights, bunting, streamers, tissue paper pom poms and balloons suspended from ceilings also help create a rustic feel. The great thing is, this type of decoration can be as simple or elegant as you want it to be.

The deciding factor of any wedding scheme is usually the location, but rustic weddings needn’t be confined to rustic wedding venues such as barns, as rustic wedding decorations can provide a lovely contrast in modern venues such as warehouses, large halls, galleries or hotels. And if you’re getting married outside, or somewhere with lovely grounds, it’s a natural fit for your bridal flowers.

The key to a rustic wedding is making sure that everything looks natural. The wedding bouquets should be less structured, and a little asymmetrical, as if you could have just picked them from a garden or meadow and put them together yourself. Wild, garden-style flowers and foliage are usually used, but elegant flowers such as roses, peonies and lilies can still find their place in a rustic setting.

As a wedding florist, things we love in terms of rustic wedding flowers ideas include watering cans, milk churns and even wellies used as containers to put the flowers in. And a battered old wheelbarrow brimming full of wild flowers makes a wonderful and unusual entrance display. For a spring wedding, plush bouquets of chrysanthemums and daisies can make a lovely seasonal alternative to the traditional rose.

Muted colours and tones usually work best for rustic weddings, although pops of colour can be added to give interest and contrast. Pink is seeing a comeback in the form of soft, blush tones, and although a wedding all in pink and white might seem too girly, this pretty colour creates a really warm, natural and romantic look. For an outdoor, garden wedding a mixture of cream and light pink roses look lovely on tables glowing with candles, and combined with wooden furniture will create a very relaxed atmosphere.

To give the feeling that your wedding flowers have been picked from an abundant field and to really reflect the variety in nature, you might consider combining sweetly scented white freesia with various tones of pink flowers and lots of soft, wispy foliage such as ferns. Add in a few branches and accents of wood and you have a gorgeously romantic rustic theme.

Wedding Bouquets 140 wmAt bridal florist Todich Floral Design, we believe an important element to rustic wedding flowers is lots of greenery. Cascading bouquets and flower garlands are a great way to achieve this and are very popular for rustic weddings. Delicate flowers can be woven in to garlands of foliage such as ivy, ruscus, ferns and pine and strewn across tables, woven up posts or banisters and draped across doorways or freestanding arches to give a feeling of abundance and bringing the outdoors in.

For lighting, a great suggestion is to use antique lanterns and do not hesitate to decorate the lanterns with flowers as well, as part of the wedding will happen during the day while the lanterns are not lit. Twinkling fairy lights are lovely too and look incredibly romantic when strung outwards from a central point.
