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!

Private Event Flowers – for a London party in July

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Event Floral Design

2Our florists at Todich Floral Design recently got the chance to design beautiful contemporary event flower arrangements for a private event that was being held in St John’s Wood, London.

The private party was located in a stylish roof-top apartment which had breath-taking views of London. The event included high-profile guests and the host wished for us to provide flower displays to decorate1 the entire venue.

The host has been a regular client of our flower shop in London for the last 10 years.  The client always requests the London florist to provide flower arrangements for all of her London events.

The main focal point at the venue was the buffet table; this required a stylish long and low flower arrangement that matched with the overall colour scheme and style of the 17room. Our florists created a beautiful event floral design in vibrant reds, magentas, and whites. The flower display was to be placed onto a red table 24cloth which was surrounded by red tea light candles.  The event flower arrangement sat at 120cm long and had four tall glass vases with submerged pink/purple Vanda orchids. White floating candles were placed at the top of the vases and were to be lit during the London event.  The vases were sat within a bed of red, pink, burgundy and cerise carnations. We made sure the vases had different heights so to create maximum impact.

We designed a mantelpiece arrangement which was placed next to the buffet table; the mantelpiece flower arrangement was similar but a smaller event flower design of the main flower display. It included vases with submerged Vanda orchids which were 23in a bed of red, pink, burgundy and cerise carnations; the flowers look beautiful against the floral wallpaper.

The host required a tall flower display for the entrance hall. We kept the colours and the flowers consistent throughout.  The arrangement was a front facing design including red and orange dahlias, peach roses and alchemilla.

We also designed an orchid plant arrangement which was framed by seasonal flowers. We placed the orchid into a glass vase and arranged red and orange dahlias as well as peach roses around some seasonal foliage.

The upstairs room had a small bar and coffee table which required small flower arrangements. We stylistically arranged pink Vanda orchids, orange dahlias, yellow dahlias and green alchemillas into fishbowl vases.  The 6exotic private event flowers were styled into a contemporary design and looked absolutely stunning!  We are also thrilled our client loved the flower designs too.

Surrey County Cricket Club – End of Season Awards

Monday, January 30th, 2012












We at Todich Floral Design are always proud when we are asked to provide the flowers for a wedding or event.  We love getting our florists to create beautiful new designs and coming up with new unique styles which have not been seen before.

Recently we were asked to provide the flowers for Surrey County Cricket Club as the event was to celebrate the ‘End of Season Awards’.

The event was held at the Kia Oval in Kennington, London, which was a very stylish venue of monotone colours.

In-keeping with the event, we were asked to provide low table centres, tall vases and a grand candelabra for the stage. After our sales consultant visited the venue our floral designers came up with simple stylistic designs which would match the colour theme of the event.

For our low table centres, we put together a selection of seasonal white flowers, open white lilies, white gerberas and black sprayed pampas grass, these combined flowers made stunning centre pieces on the tables; also the monochromatic displays juxtaposed the elegant black table cloths.

Our tall vases were contained beautiful white lilies, gerberas and orchids which were elegantly spiralled around the vases and left resting on the tables. We used black vases which complimented the overall colour scheme and we were conscious to providing continuity and add elegance to the ceremony.

Our candelabra arrangement was the main focal point at the venue and needed to look spectacular and eye-catching. We used a tall black vase and filled the flowers with larger gerberas and lilies. The design was contemporary and matched the other vases.

We were very happy with the results and more importantly the client was impressed with the finishing touches of the venue. The awards are a richly deserved celebration of a superb season for Surry County Cricket Club and we look forward to providing more flowers for them in the future.

If you would like us to provide flowers for yourself or an upcoming event then please do not hesitate to get in touch, We would be happy to book a consultation with you and talk you through any ideas that you have in mind.

Simply give us a call on 02077371166 and we would be happy to help.

Tips for organising a corporate event

Friday, January 18th, 2008

Event organisation is pretty tricky if you don’t take into consideration some key things. Neglecting to plan in advance is a sure way to create problems. Here are a couple of tips for organising an event that may help you at least a little bit.


Which type of corporate event are you organising?

There are basically two major types of corporate events – internal (for new employees, retirement parties, recognition for employees’ achievements, seminars, etc.) and external (events for clients and the general public). Depending on the type of event, you may want to consider different approaches in planning them, in order to keep expenses and time investment at an optimal level (ex. external events will most probably require a greater commitment of resources that internal events).

Choosing the venue

The intended size and audience are most likely to influence the choice of venue for the event. Company space may be enough, although choosing an outside venue at an attractive location will probably bring a bit of glamour and excitement to everyone attending. A venue large enough to host a bit more than the intended number of people is always better than to end up in a cramped up space.

Cintia Souza of Orange Digital adds “When it comes to choosing a venue I like to think “for whom am I preparing this event for?”. The venue has to represent the idea of the event or party. Keep in mind that accessibility, parking facilities and weather have to be considered when you are choosing the best place. Once I find a few options that will make sense to the purpose of the event, that’s where I’ll start the process of finding the best price x value.”


Stan Tan of Selby’s My advice is to allocate at least 1 month or ideally 2-3 months for your signage. The reason is because today most signage are outsourced to overseas which means higher possibilities of delays and if the color doesn’t match your corporate’s logo then it needs to get reprinted, shipped and delivered from overseas.

Food and beverage

Food and beverage are always important when organising an event. After all, all social networking, chatting, discussions, toasts, introductions, usually revolve around a nice glass of champagne (or other drinks), and good choice of food will always contribute to the overall success of a corporate event. Alex Potor, founder of ExPotor states that “catering depends on the season, location and type of group. Some venues will insist on organising the catering and some will refuse to. It really depends on the country and location. An example, for a team building incentive is finger food. It can be great if the venue is nature-related and also ensures a fluid environment for socialising.”

Additionally, make sure all the major beverage categories are available, with options if possible. If alcohol is going to be served, try to cover everyone’s transportation needs by having designated drivers available, or simply rent professional transport services (limos, vans, taxis, buses). Food should probably be a bit on the extravagant side, to give the occasion a special touch, although moderately (not everyone enjoys every kind of food).

Music and entertainment

Probably the best kind of entertainment is a band of professional musicians whose opus will include classical music and jazz (always a great choice). Naturally, if the event is of a more informal type, a more engaging music choice will work as well. It shouldn’t prevent people from mingling and communicating, but should be loud enough to spread some good vibes around the venue.

Publicity and marketing

Is your corporate event something that should be available to the media? Publicity is always good, and corporate events are great opportunities to deliver a message to the public through the media. Marketing a corporate event is something that’s necessary in order to attract media attention and general public interest, and should be tended to accordingly. Usually, if a corporate event revolved around an official announcement or figure, designating or hiring a speaker would be a great idea. Good event speakers will help capture everyone’s attention and invoke a positive attitude from everyone attending the event. Hotels offering weddings use the most of photos taken to give a realistic event.

Evaluate your corporate event

This is a necessary step – make some markers upon which to evaluate a corporate event. How can you tell an event was successful? Well, by defining what you, as the organiser, wanted to achieve. By evaluating your corporate event, you not only get a picture of how close you came to accomplishing your goal, but also get a clearer picture about mistakes that need to be corrected for the next corporate event.

Event decoration

Probably the most important part of organisation is event decoration. Believe it or not, this is one of the things that attendees will remember the most long after the event has passed. Having appropriate decorations can really help the overall success of a corporate event by bringing an aesthetic dimension to be the background of everything else that will be going on. Flower and plant decorations are usually the best choice as they bring life to the event, and create an atmosphere of serenity. Depending on the topic of the event, the choice of flowers and colours will have a big impact. Even though you will probably have a pretty good idea of what you think your event’s decorations ought to look like, sometimes it’s not a bad idea to consult a professional, at least to get an idea of all the possible options that might work.


Kim Good, Owner of Import Ants, says: “At the moment sustainability is high in everyone’s priorities and corporations are also looking at sustainability which make plants and flowers the perfect decoration for a corporate event. What could be nicer than a living decoration which avoids plastics and single use items which invariably end up being thrown away at the end of the night? A living plant in a Waterproof Paper Pot says a lot about what type of corporation you are and how you value the world.”

We hope these tips will help at least a little bit to organise your next successful corporate event. Oh, and by the way, if you need corporate event decorations, please get in touch with us. We’ve got lots of experience and are always looking forward to a new challenge. Join our list of satisfied clients!
