The perfect ways to decorate the office this Christmas

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

As we count down to the most wonderful time of the year, it’s important to keep up work moral. The best way to do this is to introduce some festive cheer into the office. These are a few ideas of how to decorate the office this Christmas season.

christmas-arrangements

The Christmas Tree

We’ll start with the big one, the Christmas tree. A Christmas tree is a Christmas essential, yet it doesn’t have to be the ginormous shrub that we all struggle to get the star on top of. The first thing to decide is real or faux. Real trees smell great and create a traditional festive atmosphere, but they can be messy. Faux can be used year in year out and won’t make a mess, however they sometimes lack that Christmas sparkle. Then it comes down to the size, type and design. Artificial trees can be experimented with. From the upside-down tree to the neon tree, and from mini electric light up trees to hand carved wooden tree sculptures, the choice is endless.

 

A Christmas desk plants

A great way to ensure everyone receives the festive feeling is to have a potted plant per desk. This can be a mini decorated Christmas tree or a lovely potted poinsettia plant. The poinsettia plant has glossy red and green leaves and is versatile enough to be potted and placed anywhere. Another option is the Christmas cactus. These can bloom into an array of red, pink, purple, orange and white blossoms. Although, be sure not to give the cactus too much water as it may result in newly formed buds falling off, other than this they are rather simple to maintain.

 

DIY cut out decorations

As the image of Buddy the elf running around Santa’s workshop making paper cut outs pops into your mind, don’t panic, the office doesn’t need to be a winter wonderland. This idea will depend on the dynamic of your office, but what makes DIY great is that you can make it as extravagant or as subtle as you wish. You can get the kids involved and they can help mum or dad get decorations ready for the office. Simple snowflakes or Christmas bunting look great and there are endless templates and tutorials online for more intricate ambitions.

 

Pick a style

This is an important one, both for making your office look great and for sticking with your office values. You will want to pick a type of theme or style for your decorations that matches your office and its atmosphere. If you have a modern office, it will look great to have modern Christmas decorations such as this year’s highly talked about rainbow Christmas tree or the upside down tree. If your office is traditional the Christmas décor should match, try using traditional round baubles in traditional reds, golds and greens.

 

Desktop Christmas Stockings

Stockings are superb because they are as much a decoration as they are a functioning gift holder. Stockings can be hung on each desk and filled with small but useful office gifts such as pens, memory sticks, staples and pads. If you want to really spread the cheer, sweets and small keepsakes are what employees value most.

Ryan Jones from ACI adds "One of the main things we find that really energises our staff during the Christmas period is livening the desks up with tinsel. While this may seem really simple, it really helps your staff get into the Christmas spirit!"

Nibbles

It is the jolliest time of the year and this means it’s okay to indulge. There is nothing we love more than being able to eat that little bit extra during the festive period. Having nibbles in the office is a great way to pick everyone spirits up for that final push before the Christmas break. The classic tin (or plastic tub nowadays), candy canes and nuts are a super choice. Filling bowls with nibbles brings that little bit of home into the office and will provide bursts of energy to your employees throughout the day.

 

8 Ways To Make Your Wedding Ceremony Amazing With Flowers

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

As important as it is to plan out your flower arrangements and beautifully decorate your wedding venue, there are lots of ways for you to create an elegant, classy and beautiful ambiance at the ceremony itself. See these 11 ways from London wedding florist Todich Floral Design for you to create an absolutely gorgeous wedding ceremony this winter.

wedding-ceremony-flowers-london-wedding-reception-flowers-flowers-for-events-london-ukWedding-Ceremony-Flowers-London-Wedding-Flowers-London-Wedding-Florist-London

1. Dome Flowers

Carnations, Roses, Ranunculus and Peonies

A classic flower dome made from carnations, red or white big-bloom roses, peonies or ranunculus in a silver vase on a pedestal is a striking, elegant way to decorate at your wedding ceremony.

2. Christmas Weddings Bring Added Joy and Cheer to the Season

Douglas Fir, White Pine, Norway Spruce, Angels and Ornaments

If you’re planning a Christmas wedding, allow yourself to be inspired by the season. Fir, pine and spruce—all evergreen Christmas trees can be set off to either side of the alter. Angel ornaments, golden stars, silver and bright red orbs are a lovely addition to your ceremony.

3. Entranceway and Archway Flowers

Blush Roses, Hydrangeas, Babies Breath, Queen Anne’s Lace

Wedding guests are always so excited by beautifully arranged flowers. So what better way to greet them at entranceways, by decorating arches and church steps, and with sign decorations? Vintage milk jug vases filled with daises, hydrangeas and blush roses, or pedestal flower arrangements, are warm ways to welcome family and friends for winter weddings. Consider a chalk-drawn ceremony sign with simple, angelic garlands made up of babies breath flowers or Queen Anne’s lace.

4. Candelabra Floral Displays

Pedestal Flowers, Candelabra and Windowsill Floral Displays

Add a lovely candelabrum decorated with flowers on your wedding day. Place candelabra near the alter, on windowsills (with the candles unlit), and on pedestals throughout your venue.

5. Church Wedding Pew Decorations

Church Pew Flowers, Roses, Green Ivy and White Ribbon

Decorating church pews and the pew ends with flowers is an enduring tradition, whether you have an English countryside wedding, a vintage style wedding, or something that’s a little more chic, with plenty of glitz and glam.

There’s lots of room for creativity, too, no matter what your wedding theme. A rosebud, tied with twine and bright green ivy is one option. Simple greenery and foliage with white satin ribbons is another. For church pew flowers, simplicity is really the key!

6. Decorate the Alter With Candlelight

Altar Flowers, Vintage Wedding Flowers

Warm the atmosphere of your wedding ceremony even more with softly glowing candles. Candles can find their way into all sorts of wedding decorations. You can light them at the alter, as well as in vintage chandeliers, or by highlighting the aisle.

7. Aisle Flowers

Pink, Blush and Bi-colored Rose Petals

Aisle flowers at your ceremony, including blush or light pink or bi-colored rose petals scattered down the aisle, are a way to have fun and rejoice in love’s abundance!

8. Christmas Wreaths for Winter Weddings

Christmas Roses, Rosemary, Jasmine, Mistletoe

At your ceremony it’s time to go classic—add a traditional Christmas wreath to rustic doors, at the entrances and doorways, and throughout your ceremony venue. Christmas roses, rosemary and jasmine, and mistletoe are other fine seasonal touches.

Tis the season after all, right? Embrace each other, celebrate your future together and add to the joy and good tidings of your wedding day by including Christmas wreaths in your wedding decoration.

Decorate your Home with Evergreens and Christmas Trees this Winter

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Traditionally associated with Christmas trees, evergreens such as firs and conifers don’t have to only be present in the tree in your home. Lovely scented fir branches (whether bright green or more silvery varieties) can be displayed on mantle pieces or make beautiful table decorations. They can also be made into wreaths to decorate the home or on your front door – and don’t forget miniature Christmas trees which are a versatile decoration that can be placed anywhere in the house. Evergreen branches and sprigs can be bought from florists, garden centres and many high street shops – and lots of places that sell Christmas trees will also have winter foliage to purchase.

Mini Christmas Tree

A full-sized, real or artificial Christmas tree is a must for most households – creating a wonderful welcome for guests in the hall, or a magical decorative treat in the living room. But mini Christmas trees are also a great decoration for the season, and if you have a small flat these can be ideal alternatives to a traditional tree. Choose small potted evergreens in festive pots (such as metallic gold or seasonal red), or go for an alternative such as rosemary trees or orange trees for a different colour and delightful scent. There are plenty of artificial mini trees to choose from too – often fully decorated to make life easier. Display on the kitchen table, use as a centrepiece, add to a windowsill or perch on a coffee table for instant festive cheer!

Deck out Your Christmas Table

Arrange your evergreen branches down the centre of Christmas table for a colourful decoration. You could also add other foliage like olive leaves, eucalyptus or winter branches. Add fruits like clementines and lemons for colour and fragrances and natural elements berries and pine cones. And for the table lighting add white candles or wind fairy lights through your display. A sprig of fir, or of a herb such as rosemary of thyme, can also be tied to a napkin for a delightful place setting. Winter greenery can also be added to Christmas flower arrangements, or added to bowls of pine cones and baubles to make a simple but striking table decoration.

Wreaths of Joy. Christmas Wreaths Ideas to Make

A Christmas wreath is a wonderful way to decorate your front door or indeed any door in your home. They can also be arranged above the mantelpiece or in the kitchen. Go for simple elegance with a circle of evergreens adorned with a bow, or choose and embellished wreath – adorned with baubles, metallic leaves, rustic berries and pine cones or fragrant cinnamon sticks and dried lemon and oranges. Head to the shops or florists to pick your perfect wreath, or get creative and make your own to ensure it’s exactly to your taste. Mini wreaths of evergreen can also be displayed in windows tied with lengths of ribbon for a more eclectic look, or used as table centrepieces.

Flowers to Bring the Magic to Christmas Events

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

The days may be getting colder but what brings a warm glow to our hearts is knowing that the Christmas season isn’t too far away. The months of November, December and January are filled with social events like work parties, family gatherings and festive events with friends – and the likelihood is you’ll be  organising one yourself. Decorations are key – and Christmas flowers are the perfect way to bring colour and vibrancy to a Christmas event. You can always turn to a trusted, creative florist for help creating beautiful Christmas flower arrangements for your event this winter. But it’s also helpful to have ideas in mind for how you want the event to look and the kind of floral displays you’re looking for.

christmas-arrangements

Red and White Christmas Roses

Roses are a classic flower that nonetheless has a versatility that makes it suitable for floral arrangements for all seasons. They create a sense of opulence and richness – perfect for special events this Christmas season. Red roses are beautiful juxtaposed with winter greenery like pine, ivy and fragrant herbs. A full bouquet of red roses will make stunning centrepieces on tables for corporate or casual events, while a single rose dotted on tables makes for beautiful additions to the occasion. Red, white and green being traditional Christmas colours, white roses also present a great option for event flowers. Create winter wonderland displays with white roses and silver or gold adornments like painted branches, baubles and fairy lights.

Green, Red and White for a Christmas Theme

The Christmas tricolore is inspired by the colours of the season: red berries, Santa’s suit and Rudolph’s nose; white snow and doves; evergreen trees and holly. Incorporating these colours into Christmas flower displays will create beautiful, classic displays for guests at any event. Greet guests with a red and white amaryllis arrangement featuring silvery branches, or choose elegant lilies and berries with red baubles – a lovely table centrepiece or addition to restaurant and hotel receptions. A Christmas wreath of pine is a perfect addition to Christmas parties – decorated with gold and silver decorations, red berries and white flowers.

Try Tropical Flowers for a Festive Flair

During this sparse time of year, English flowers are far and few between so we take inspiration for warmer climes for flowers to bring colour and joy to Christmas events. Colourful anthuriums teamed with silvery branches make for perfect Christmas event flowers – whether as centrepieces or at the reception area. Tropical flowers like ginger flowers, birds of paradise and anthuriums are all available in the rich colours of the season – red, orange and gold – and make perfect, striking event flowers for your winter parties.

And never underestimate the addition of a Christmas tree to make an occasion really special. Displayed in the entrance hall or main room of your event – even if it’s an outdoor do – a sumptuously decorated Christmas tree brings instant feelings of warmth and joy. Your London florist can help create the perfect stylish tree to suit the occasion and make your Christmas event truly special.

Christmas, a blissful season reminiscent of cosy nights in by the fire, and the suspense of waiting to open presents under the tree, comes with a number of age old traditions and tales related to traditional Christmas  flowers and plants. 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. A symbol of a man, Holly was actually used to decorate the home, and surprisingly, traditionally created long before the Christianity. Holly makes spectacular Christmas decorations along and go a long way into completing Christmas flower arrangements.

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.

Poinsettia. Renowned for bursting into flower at Christmas, Poinsettia is beautiful traditional Christmas flowering plant, grown for vibrant coloured bracts. It’s cheery foliage in hues of red and green and distinct shape make it fitting flowers to decorate the home with at Christmas or make spectacular window displays for an office or restaurant.

Amaryllis Christmas flowers; much more than just a pot plant

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Amaryllis, or Hippeastrum to quote their correct name, are very popular Christmas gifts in the UK. Event florist Todich Floral Design sends many of these Christmas flowers to clients in London at this time of the year.

With their tall height, thick, straight stems and multiple, lily-like flower heads, they are instantly eye-catching in their own right as Christmas floral decorations and are most often sold as simple potted plants. But they also look wonderful in a range of different floral designs.

A bulbous plant, hippeastrum usually first appear in UK shops, florists and flower markets around September and are mostly bought and sold in pots as they grow and flower well indoors. They are available in a variety of colours well in to March as a cut flower and if bought in bulb form normally take about six to eight weeks to appear.

At London florist Todich Floral Design, we often use Amaryllis in our corporate flowers and wedding flowers throughout the winter months, as well as in Christmas flower arrangements

So if you, like us, love this flower and fancy having a go at creating your own alternative Christmas floral displays with them at home, below are some ideas for festive designs we love.

Christmas Amaryllis design1. Take a rustic enamelled jug and simply add a couple of amaryllis stems, some sprigs of holly and pine. Tie a pretty ribbon around the top of the jug, stand it on a tray and adorn with some festive Christmas baubles

2. Pot two stems of white amaryllis in a large silver tin bucket and top with pine cones and moss. Stand on a matching silver tray scattered with more pine cones and wooden stars

3. Create a wild winter centrepiece by taking a small table urn and filling with floral foam, then adding an assortment of peach amaryllis, red and gold cympidium orchids, peach roses, ranunculus, berried ivy and flowering eucalptus. Keep the outline assymetric for that ‘just thrown together’ look

4. Pot some bright red and white striped amaryllis in a mini wicker hamper, top with moss and scatter pine cones around the base for an English country garden style Christmas centrepiece or windowsill display

5. (Pictured above) Take a white glass cube vase and fill with floral foam. Add tall twigs sprayed sparkly white, then some shorter stems of pine as a filler around the base. Cut five to seven stems of red and white amaryllis at varying heights and you have a bright, tall and modern display

Hippeastrum is a genus of about 90 species of bulbous plants in the Amaryllidaceae family and is native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Central and South America, from Argentina, north up through Mexico and the Caribbean. Ideally you should have planted them by now if you were hoping to appreciate their wonderfully striking blooms at your Christmas table, but the plus is that if you’ve missed this deadline, you can plant them in the New Year to enjoy them well in to Spring.

Todich Floral Design is a luxury London florist specialising in event flowers, including Christmas flowers delivery and Christmas decorations. The company also offers a competitively priced service for office flowers and contracts, including real Christmas tree delivery and decorated Christmas tree delivery within London and the UK.

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,

Christmas wreaths by Corporate and event florist  in Londonrestaurantshotels and for media events. Although red, green and gold is the classic colour palette for Christmas, there are many other combinations you can use to give your Christmas flowers and arrangements a fresh and contemporary colour scheme. 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!

Designing Like a Wildcrafter

Friday, November 27th, 2009

 

Sometimes it can be hard to define, what exactly we find beautiful on the cold stormy days of winter. When taking a closer look, howling winds and below zero temperatures could mean the source of inspiration for the next floral centrepiece to adorn your table at a special event. Gales carry with them what nature has discarded cones, needles, branches, seed pods and other beautiful, natural pieces of art.

 

When working with the right floral designer, nature can lead to the formation of magnificent pieces of botanical art, using city streets, country lanes, or a farmer’s field for as the source of inspiration.

 

Some have even made this their craft, those who use natural resources for their floral design have been given the title of wildcrafter. As their line of work requires it, they lead a life completely immersed in nature, developing a keen eye for possible material in the outdoors.

 

This type of designer will be very unlikely to create the traditional Christmas wreath, made of pine or cedar, instead other materials are used making a less obvious reference to the holiday. This kind of approach can be far more refreshing, a bit of originality can just as easily capture the spirit of the season, perhaps even more so, than a green wreath with a red bow that is a mirror image to the one hanging on the neighbour’s front door.

 

One wonderful example is the use of blackberry, rose hip or birch branches to create a wreath. When birch is in question, branches collected in early spring are fairly malleable, and they can simply be wound around each other, until the desired thickness is reached. Then it is up to the designer to decide what is to be used as further decoration. This can be flowers, bark from from other trees, berries or whatever you like best.

 

Using nature as a source for ideas can have more than one positive aspect. Natural design and decorations can act as a reminder to stay green, while using nature’s creations will guarantee that you stay unique. In the following few months we will all be spending a considerable amount of time going from house to house, event to event, or perhaps organizing one or several get-togethers of our own. Wouldn’t it be rejuvenating to see one unique decoration scheme after another? Our own homes or events could also see some refreshment with a little boost from the outdoors.

 

There is no need to start wandering through the woods collecting branches like a wildcrafter. But the next time you consult with a floral designer, don’t forget to think back to the last winter walk you took. With a little help from our designers you could be on your way to creating design that is earthy, yet spectacular and original.

 

 

 

Office Christmas party survival guide

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

jelka2l.jpgIt's a jungle out there! Long hours, working weekends, endlessly increasing expectations and pressure – you have to unwind and blow off some steam. Ah, the office Christmas party, let's go wild and party like there's no tomorrow. Sounds good, right? Well, wrong. This is not an occasion that should be taken too lightly.

Depending on the working environment, we will all have a different experience at office parties. Some will enjoy a relaxed, informal atmosphere in which a little loose behaviour may be tolerated, but some will end up in the unemployed waiting line if they are not careful. Here's a list with a couple of pointers on how to survive the office Christmas party season.

Don't drink too much

This may seem obvious enough, but it is very important. It's easy to get carried away and drink too much. More booze means more potential trouble as the party progresses. Almost all problems at these parties are a direct consequence of individuals not being able to control themselves having had too much to drink. Try to avoid standing to close to the Christmas trees, or pee in the office plants – the last thing you need is a close encounter with either of them. 🙂

Make an effort to attend

Do whatever you can to show up at the party. This way, you will not only make sure you are there to meet everyone, but also you will show that you see yourself as part of the "family", and the rest should see you that way as well. Additionally, if you've already told someone from your company you will attend, than you really should.

Control your emotions

No, this doesn't mean you should withhold, but don't overdo it either. Crying and emotional outbursts are not something you want to happen on an occasion like this. You will be exposed to everyone's eyes and judgment, especially from senior employees, many of whom can significantly impact your future with the company. Many of us have problems in our professional and private life. Added to every day stress and pressure, these problems are time bombs waiting for a relaxed, alcohol catalysed situation, to come out. Don't forget, it's a party, you should relax and unwind, but not turn the whole experience into a therapy session. Problems should be solved elsewhere. If you are very troubled, make a proper excuse for not showing up at the party at all, and have some quality time for yourself.

Keep your private life to yourself

This is in direct relationship with the previous point. Keep your private life to yourself. This will not only protect your integrity in the long run, but it will also help you listen to other people, engage in relaxed chit chat, and present yourself to your colleagues as a fun and enjoyable person that you are.

Be attractive, but don't show too much

Wardrobe is an important part of your appearance anywhere. Even though no one should be judged by the clothes they wear, in the corporate world, visual appearance is an important part in the grand scheme of things. Many of us will be eager to leave a strong impression on everyone attending the party, but things shouldn't go too far. Keep it simple, elegant, and moderate. Don't show too much, and you will be fine. And guys, this goes for you as well. 🙂

Relax, mingle, chat, stay connected

Ok, everything said so far may have put some pressure on you, but they are just things to keep in mind before you go to the company Christmas party. In the end, it's still just a party. You should have fun, mingle, chat and make new connections. Don't just spend time with people you know from your department, but try and meet some of the other people working at the company. There may be opportunities you are not even aware of right now, that you may learn of from others. Take a little, but also share a little, and most of all enjoy yourself!

With all the office and home decorations ahead, we at Todich Floral Design will probably be working during the holidays, but that's okay – we love to help people enjoy themselves. We will have a little office party of our own, but ready to take orders from our clients at any time. C'est la vie!

By the way, if you are organising an office party, take a look at what we can do for you.
