It’s Fiery Flower Design News For Home Decor, This July And August

June 15th, 2017

Check out some of the latest floral design news in fashion and home decoration, arranged for you by Todich Floral Design. See what's trending, sexy and exciting this summer for when you decide to do a little bit of redecorating…

Floral Fashion: Bohemian Summer

Boho-chic, the best of both worlds, is making a small but mighty 2017 summer comeback. Bohemian and floral fashion trends combine and culminate in flowers and fringes. Think colourful floral print patterns or relaxed nature scenes in wall hangings and sofa covering. You get a look that's a little flirty, bright and vibrant, but none too neat or overly tidy and pristine like some other contemporary floral fashions.

Green Plants Rule

Introduce greenery of all varieties into your cooking and eating space, in the bedroom on your bedside table, the home office, and anywhere you may want to relax, lounge, or open a good book. This kind of monochromatic and simple floral fashion makes a 'back to nature' statement. Exotic indoor plants, varieties of succulents, and azalea shrubs or mini rose bushes are ways to bring a clean energy and greater mindfulness into your home through just a few small decorative touches. It really adds up.

Cabana Style Flow–With Woody Tones and Whites

Wouldn't we all like to snap our fingers and be by the pool with a drink in hand? Lying in a wooden cabana or gazebo? Or imagine suddenly arriving at the beach, pristine white sand, with the sea washing up on the shore and the hot, clean sun shining high overhead.

These are the summer images and colour palettes acting as inspiration for this particular floral design style. Lots of white and ethereal flower bouquets around the home and for events–hydrangeas, calla lilies, daisies and chrysanthemums. Add branches, pussy willows and other woodsy foliage. Look for blue, teal and sea green colours to use in contemporary glass vases and single candle holders.  

Floral Anatomy and Botany

Before you're put off  by any technical sounding jargon or the distant memory of weighty tomes and driest of dry text books, know that this floral trend is versatile, good for summer as well as early in the autumn season. It just depends on whether you're in the mood for a summer cabin in the woods or a hidden autumn getaway.

This floral fashion and style is more masculine, full of deep greens, beige, off-white hues like bone, and light green touches. You'll find simple straight lines in flower arrangements at home using tulips and white roses beneath contemporary light fixtures, and actual old botany prints, sepia or black and white photographs, and charcoal floral sketches.

Nordic Breeze, Whites & Blues

A cool wind and design sense in from the upper reaches is the perfect way to cool off and decorate all at the same time. It's easier if you already have some classical elements or furniture in your home, but don't despair. Instill your living space with tranquillity and quietude, with light and pale beech and pine woods or new paint on the walls. This style favours fishbowl flower arrangements, lotus flowers, orchids, lilies and the well-placed array of white rose petals.

4 Spectacular Spring Wedding Event Decorations You’ll Definitely Want

May 9th, 2017

So many beautiful spring weddings this season, with gorgeous floral decorations that we love and just have to share with you. The spring season is one of renewal, of rebirth, and of reawakening after the winter has past. Spring is also a breath of fresh air, before the heat and hubbub of the summer. And of course Spring means, too, that love is in the air—so we are all too happy at Todich Floral Design to help you make your wedding that much more magical.

Here we have gathered a quick list of 4 of the finest top wedding event decorations, ideas for you to make your wedding day truly spectacular.


Floating Wedding Flowers

Whether you choose a fishbowl flower arrangements or decide to float your wedding flowers in rounded cocktail classes, single blossoms in water are a beautiful, elegant and symbolic way for you to decorate on your wedding day.

They make perfect floral centrepieces and can accentuate either side of the aisle as the bride walks to meet her groom. Also consider floating candles for evening wedding receptions. Select from daisies, marigolds, lilies and roses petals among other springtime flowers.

Flower Art Etchings and Floral Monograms

Add a diverse, bright array of flowers in the shape of your initials, you and your partner’s letters in a floral arrangement next to each other. After the beautiful ceremony, let your guests know that they have arrived to the right place by placing your surname initial or both your initials side by side at the entrance to the wedding venue. This fun, colourful piece of wedding decor is a great way to greet guests.  

Baby’s Breath Wedding Decor

Very few flowers say spring like Baby’s Breath—ethereal, light and whimsical as the breeze that blows through the air on a gorgeously refreshing spring day, and your wedding day!

You can include Baby’s Breath in your wedding decorations in a number of ways. In silver buckets, they can serve as chair or pew decorations and table decorations at outdoor rustic weddings. You might create flower arrangements in clear glass water jugs or pair them with blush and white roses in simple yet refined floral arrangements.

Lights, Candles and Sparkling Delight

Add a touch of the fey and truly magical adornments to your wedding flower decorations and table centrepieces. Candlelight, glass, glitter and sparkling adornments help to create an otherworldly, romantic and mood-lit ambiance, perfect for spring weddings, evening receptions, and garden or rustic themed weddings.

If you want purple wedding flower decorations, try a tall glass candle holder with a purple flower and honeysuckle arrangement. Fill the glass with water and float a tiny tea light on the water’s surface. Glamorous, alluring and aromatic!
A similar flower-in-water effect can be achieved by placing a shorter-stemmed flower—a blush rose, red rose, yellow or white tulip, or gardenia blossom—inside a tall and narrow glass, then also float the tea light along the top of the water. This beautiful table arrangement will captivate and delight guests.

Event Flowers 101: Impress Your Guests With These Beautiful Blossoms

April 19th, 2017

Need a few events flowers ideas for a party or reception this spring? Whether you're planning a large-scale corporate event and want to impress your boss or important clients, or it is an intimate gathering at home, these events flowers will absolutely wow! your guests. Keep reading for the spring seasons top flowers and event planning ideas below. 



The aim of fabulous event flowers is to inspire and be inspiring: impress your guests with creative design ideas and instill an atmosphere of intimacy, intrigue and excitement, matching your event theme and festive decorum, whether you are planning a grand opening party, a business event, throwing a corporate gala or charity ball, or even simply inviting several friends and family in for the holidays.

Point being, carefully planned and expert flowers design can transform your event into a stunning, lovely affair for all to enjoy.

Spring Floral Fashion: Cherry Blossom and Branch Arrangements

Branches with flower blossoms are a way to scaffold, to structure, to frame and help set the tone and mood for your event. Sweet blossoms will also fill the surrounding area with their lovely fragrance. There are several varieties of spring branches and blossoms that you can use in decor and to accentuate the spring decorations for your event: peach blossoms, plum blossoms, cherry blossoms and apple blossoms. Their pink and white hues, with crepe thin delicate petals, are the perfect backdrop and welcome for people as they arrive.

Use branches in simple to elaborate table centrepieces, on their own, or also in combination with other floral arrangements.

Hanging Spring Flower Arrangements

Spring is a season of growth, of abundance and profusion, of green cascades and a touch of wild, energetic playfulness. Hanging floral fashions and arrangements help you to capture and present this spring fundamental. Outdoor events—garden parties, cocktail receptions, wedding celebrations—do well to decorate with flowers, vines and greenery draped over the edges of tables, hanging from balconies, on trellises, from archways and in entrances.


DIY Table Flowers and Floral Centrepieces for Events

Put together your own floral centrepieces, for events big and small, by picking out two or three varieties of flowers at your local florist. Select at least one large, full and prominent bloom—such as peonies, roses or lilies—to act as the focal point of your flower arrangement. Smaller filler flowers and accentuating notes can be achieved with asters, Queen Anne's lace, or in between blossoms, like posies and ranunculus—small in stature but no less striking than larger blooms.

Chair Flowers: Beautiful Flower Decorations Stand Out!

Sitting or standing, guests will be able to appreciate fine floral decorations for their chairs, whether they at the table or watching from across the ballroom.
Flower wreaths hung from the backs of chairs, strung with spring roses or daisies, for example, are a great way to jazz up your event flowers. So are individual blossoms tied with satin ribbon, or a combination of flowers and sheer linen or lace: perfectly draped to suggest comfort, extravagance and allure. 

Spring Floral Designs & Party Accessories: Flower Decorations You’ll Adore

April 14th, 2017

Spring is here! Along with our favourite, brightest season of the year, so have arrived all the beautiful spring blossoms for you to enjoy. Place them in traditional vases and flower pots, or, even better, use floral designs and flower decorations as seasonal home decor. Surprise and delight your friends and family. Morning, afternoon and evening—no matter what time of day or type of event you’re planning, you’ll be prepared. Here are 6 gorgeous spring flowers and ways you can turn them into home party accessories:


Tulips. Planning to serve food at your party? Well, tulips in Europe actually used to be eaten with oil and vinegar, and sometimes the flower bulbs themselves were boiled and cooked in sugar—or candied.

If edible tulips are not your preference, you can still use these beautiful bulbs as event flower decorations. Just tie fresh cut tulips with a folded napkin—a cylindrical fold, or roll works best—using a rubber band or length of twine. Red, pink or yellow go wonderfully with white napkins and tablecloths. You have yourself a homemade table setting and spring themed decoration.  

Hyacinths. Long, glorious profusions of star-like flowers make hyacinths look like spring’s own sparklers, shooting fragrantly through the air, perfect for flower arrangements in tall vases, country jugs or pitchers, and outdoor displays.

Hyacinths also symbolise the sincerest and most earnest of intentions, and accordingly come in playful, lively spring colours of lavender, bright yellow, pure white and festive pink. Whether you want to show your hyacinths inside or out, try arranging them in a brown woven basket that you can position on windowsills, tabletops, and even outside to greet your guests as they arrive. 

Daisies. Daises give you the best of both worlds—gorgeous and delicious, you can create a spring bouquet of daises or use their edible flower buds and petals to decorate, flavor and add healthy vitamins to dishes including green salads, soups chilled or hot, and sandwiches.

Daffodils. A spring perennial iconic of the season, daffodils found their way to Britain via Romans (who at the time believed daffodils had medicinal properties, when in fact their juice can act as an irritant).

White or yellow daffodil flowers still attached to their bulbs can be placed in a wide, solid cocktail glass or a heavy chalice for a modern chic springtime effect. Add water with a light amount of soil or blue and green coloured marbles or decorative stones for a marine or “out in nature” look.

Irises. The iris, with its name borrowed from the Greek goddess of rainbows, symbolises love and beauty and bodes very well for any party. Fortunately you don’t have to restrict irises to your garden or flowerbeds, but can bring them inside and arrange them in fishbowls.  

Lilies. It’s hard to find a flower more boisterous than the lily. They’re literally springing from the ground, the bouquet, blooms opening up like many starfish in an undersea formation. Or, in the case of calla lilies, like tiny trumpets—their curvaceous cups appearing perfect for holding a drop of nectar or dew. Fresh cut calla lilies also make excellent fishbowl arrangements.

Nature-Inspired, Spring Wedding Flower Decorations

April 9th, 2017

If you are looking for spring wedding flowers and decorations, there are many ways for you to take advantage of the upcoming season. You can draw inspiration from scenes in nature, depictions of new beginnings—such as young birds in flight, sapling trees, gardening, and rays of sunlight breaking over the horizon. And, of course, flowers flowers flowers! Read on to open your mind and heart to nature’s inspiration, and to make your wedding a spring delight:

Which Flowers Will You Choose For Your Wedding?

‘What kinds of flowers should I have at my wedding?’ you may ask. This can be a difficult decision as there are so many beautiful ones to choose from!

As Elise James from Easy Weddings explains: “According to a survey of more than 430 couples, the 10 most popular wedding flowers for spring are:

  • Roses
  • Peonies
  • Baby’s Breath
  • Greenery (foilage rather than flowers)
  • Proteas
  • Lisianthus
  • Orchids
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Hydrangeas
  • And synthetic flowers!

“We attribute the use of synthetic flowers in weddings to the popularity of these sorts of flowers that are not in season during spring, but are still widely popular (such as peonies).”

The following are just a few of the most popular springtime varieties of bridal flowers you can choose from:

Sweet peas. Darling little purple and lavender flowers, tiny and absolutely adorable, just as their name would suggest. Love these sweet peas!

Lilacs are light, lovely and oh-so-fragrant. Arrange these pink and fluttery flowers in a bridal bouquet or scatter them along the aisle.

Ranunculus are highly stylised, compact concentric whorls of petals that are beautiful in elaborate wedding bouquets as well as table centrepieces and flower arrangements.

Tulips. Evocative of spring, tulips are slim, slender and look beautiful in silver vases for modern weddings, or big and boisterous bunches for a wedding in the countryside.

Daisies, or gerberas daisies. Imbue your wedding event decorations with a rustic appeal using gerberas daises, or lend a rural sense of charm perfect for your countryside wedding or shabby chic theme.

Peonies. Yes, please! Round, feathery blossoms appear almost like scoops of ice cream. Peonies are just as sweet: best are soft pastels in light pink, canary yellow, and cream.

Hydrangeas. Like pom-poms with their big and beautiful blooms, hydrangeas will fill the room and make for quite a sight if you decide to use them in your wedding even decorations – try them as table runners or centrepieces.

Table centrepieces for spring weddings. Put some of those peonies or tulips to good use, too. Tie together a bunch of tulips or bundle several big and beautiful peonies, then arrange your flowers in a glass vase for guests to enjoy.

Alternatively, you can incorporate those same flowers into other components of your table decorations. Tuck fresh flowers into napkin arrangements at each place setting, or greet your friends and family with individual blossoms that instruct them on where to sit. You can easily tag each stem (a piece of heavy paper and twine). Different colours for the paper will correspond to a different table.

Spring Flower Arrangements at Every Turn

Spring offers so much in its flowers, in the energy and goodwill of the season, in its symbols, and sense and celebration for new beginnings. One such symbol of spring is the cherry blossom. Setting up an arrangement of cherry blossoms is a way to delight your guests as they arrive to celebrate your wedding. In tall vases, in doorways and entrances, and in your wedding venue’s reception area, use branches decorated sprouting bright green flower buds and cherry blossoms. They are like spring’s own confetti, to celebrate the day you have been dreaming of.

The Symbolism & Meaning Behind Spring Bouquets and Wedding Flowers

April 3rd, 2017

If you are happily engaged or planning for a spring wedding, you can be sure that some of the most gorgeous bridal bouquets and floral centrepieces will be available. Of course you don’t just want your wedding flowers to look good, you also want them to say something—something beautiful, something true and utterly exquisite to mark your special day.


So, say something beautiful and celebrate your wedding day. Appreciate and learn the symbolism behind these fabulous spring bridal bouquets:   

Light & Lofty Wedding Bouquets: Peonies & Hydrangeas

True love and a sense of levity, with riches beyond your wildest dreams—when you think about it, what else do you really need in life?

Well, that’s exactly what these wedding flowers deliver when arranged together as a spring bouquet floral masterpiece. While peonies are symbolic of strong romance and good fortune to come, hydrangeas flowers signify grace and gratitude. The word ‘hydrangea’ itself comes from Greek, and it means water (‘hydro’) + jar or jug (‘angos’).

Taken together, peonies and hydrangeas are a container for your joy, wealth, and love—as a couple, and as you grow together.

Spring Bouquet Perfection and Passion: Ranunculus, Roses & Vines

Ranunculus have their own charming mystique, rooted in mythology and a wild, pristine allure behind those ruffled, flashy petals. With a primal draw and edgy exterior that belies a ‘cute’ sensibility, ranunculus speak to the ups and down of all relationships, the highs and the lows. Combined with the passionate connotation of red roses and dark green foliage, such as natural ivy or vines, you have yourself a fiery yet balanced bouquet.     

Lustrous and Bold: Orchids-only Wedding Flowers

Little can truly rival the elegance or the bold, sweeping draw and heightened sensuality of the magnificent orchid. Orchids symbolise fertility. They are a spring flower that walks a fine line between refinement and ostentation, making it the perfect choice if you want to use only one type of blossom in your bridal bouquet. White, pink or fuchsia, or a combination of all three—you can’t go wrong.

There’s Nothing Lovelier Than Lilacs and Asters…

Purple lilacs represent the very beginnings of pure, true love; and white connotes the energy and innocence of youth. Asters, on the other hand, symbolise patience. So enhance a boisterous bouquet of white garden roses or peonies with purple or white lilacs (or both!) and add a finishing touch with asters. The collective meaning is one of tender, compassionate love and understanding that endures for a long, prosperous marriage.

Darling Freesias, Sweetly Scented Sweet Peas

Fragrance and fashion come together in this wedding bouquet. Create additional yellow accents and fragrance by adding chamomile blossoms and jasmine. Sweet peas primarily mean the most exquisite pleasure. Though they also have a secondary meaning of departures…so, in a sense, as you begin your lives together, embarking on a new path, you are in fact making the most joyous of departures.
Freesias, of course, symbolise friendship—and what better friend, if not your best friend, would you want to accompany you on this wondrous journey?

Latest Floral Design And 2017 Spring Flowers Trends

March 21st, 2017

Planning an event? Maybe you’re getting married? Then again perhaps you just want to spruce up your home décor in time for spring…whatever your reason is, you totally want to be up on floral design trends for the 2017. Todich Floral Design takes a deep dive and provides a sneak peak at upcoming spring flowers, 2017 floral designs, and flower fashions for the year ahead.


Unpacking Floral Trends and Wedding Flower Design

Trends and styles in floral design are everchanging, shifting like the seasons of the year. Floral design trends can also be a little tricky to predict as they’re tied to and influenced by world events. Needless to say, it’s difficult—practically a full-time endeavor!—to keep current with the latest and freshest, the flashiest bunches of blossoms or the more alluring bouquets, the sweet and seductive floral designs for the year, no matter what your plans or purpose.

A Shift in Floral Fashions and Most Popular Flower Colours

A momentous, unexpected year in global politics and advent of spring is rapidly shaping and shifting the floral landscape, especially when it comes to the hues, shades, and colour palettes of blossoms for the 2017 spring flower season. What’s trending, exactly? A lot of fervent and fiery petals that vie for the eye and grab your gaze have been supplanted by relatively subdued hues—apricots, creams, beige, bicolored roses, verdant whites, peach, pale pinks—and underlying shades of white or grey.

Why is this the case? The lighter colours provide an emotional balance and equilibrium in bouquets and event flower arrangements that balance out our psyches and mental states, as it’s easy to get caught up in the news and the year’s more tumultuous events.

Spring Flowers and 2017 Wedding Flower Trends

Falling in line with the general colour shift, wedding flower styles are shifting to assuage generalized concern and unease, and instead focus on tender, more feminine bouquet compositions and nuanced colourations. No bold, brash and I-speak-louder-than-thou palatial floral displays here—or, if there are, then floral design aesthetics at least balance the piece as a whole.

For example, we are seeing lots of rustic style wedding bouquets coming back in fashion, bucolic and evocative of countryside innocence, splendor and times that were more carefree. Even at a joyous occasion such as a wedding, where we look forward to a bright future full of love, a sense of nostalgia and looking to the past can find its way into flower designs. Sprawling, winding bouquets that drape across tables or hang luxuriantly within the brides grasp are made from vines, greenery, tiny buds and white hued to cream-coloured blooms with slender, feathery blossoms.

A natural sense of romance is key in this spring’s wedding designs and styles, a sense of wildness and the raw potential and allure of nature, without the chaotic or unnerving connotations of urban living and modernity. This spring you can expect lots of fresh flower varieties with profuse petals, including English roses, hydrangeas, marigolds, ranunculus and gerberas daisies, balanced by wildflower frills and ruffles of garden greenery.

Wedding Flower Ideas in Eight Different Colours

February 24th, 2017

There are so many different colour choices for wedding flower designs and the choice can be for single colour shades, multi-coloured celebrations or colours to suit the season. Spring floral colours generally tend to reflect the blooms available this time of year in yellows, blues and white while summer presents the option for more colours including pinks and purples. Wedding florists will have plenty of ideas for designs and flower choices to suit any taste and style – from classic and elegant to quirky and modern. Here’s some inspiration for flowers in popular colours for a spring or summer wedding.


White. White is often a prominent colour at weddings – symbolising purity and beauty, especially in the bridal gown. Although particularly popular for winter wedding decorations, white flowers are also beautiful choices for weddings in spring and summer. They can be stand-alone bouquets and decorations, or incorporated into bridal bouquets and other wedding flower arrangements to complement and enhance brighter colours like red and purple. White flowers like roses and lilies make wonderful showpiece blooms, while more delicate flowers like baby’s breath and lily-of-they-valley are perfect complements to harmonious bouquets and arrangements. A teardrop bouquet of calla lilies is an elegant, understated choice while white roses can complement pinks and greens in a romantic rose bouquet.

Red. The colour of passion and love, red is a bold and striking choice for wedding flowers. Although particularly popular in winter, as in this crimson rose and berry bouquet red can be suitable for any season. Spring and summer red blooms to choose from are daisy-shaped gerberas, tulips, carnations, anemones and roses. Red blooms harmonised with pink flowers makes for a particularly romantic look, while a rich, dark red bridal bouquet for red roses will looking sumptuous and striking against a white wedding dress. In the winter, red perfectly suits a Christmas- themed wedding and flowers can incorporate winter greenery like holly and ivy.

Yellow. Yellow flowers for bridal bouquets and floral wedding decorations are perfect for spring and summer weddings. Symbolising happiness and joy, these cheerful blooms will add colour and brightness to décor and make perfect complements to bride and bridesmaid’s dresses. Roses, lilies and gerberas are all available in bold shades, while more pastel shades of daffodils and hydrangeas are also an option. Yellow blooms look beautiful pared with white flowers and juxtaposed with sprigs of greenery to really make the colours pop. Yellow tulips make for show-stopping wedding centrepieces and white and yellow roses with ivy make for beautiful brides flowers.

Blue. While rarer finds, blue flowers make unique additions to wedding flower designs – symbolising inspiration, creativity and hope. They also account for the traditional ‘something blue’ for good luck! Aqua blue wedding flowers complement white blooms in arrangements, while deep blue flowers will complement white and yellow shades and are harmonious with greenery. For deep blues consider anemones, roses and cornflowers, and for pastel spring shades there’s the choice of hydrangeas, hyacinths, forget-me-nots and irises.

Purple. Purple has long been associated with richness and royalty, so it’s no surprise this regal shade is popularly requested from bridal florists for wedding flowers in bouquets, reception arrangements and centrepieces. Purple flowers to choose from are anemones, sweet peas, delphiniums, stocks, calla lilies and rose. Shades vary from very pale to deep shades, to suit all tastes and styles. Purple blooms can be anything from dramatic to pretty, traditional to rustic. Purple orchids and pink roses make an exciting bouquet, while pastel mauve roses are adorned with white freesias for true romance in a more subtle arrangement. Add to white floral bouquets or juxtapose with orange or yellow blooms for something more striking.

Pink. Pink wedding flowers are particularly popular in spring and summer and create the perfect feminine, romantic look. Pink blooms are very versatile and can be made prominent in white arrangements or complement red floral bouquets and wedding centrepieces. Pastel pink shades are harmonious with mauves, whites and blues in a romantic floral centrepiece incorporating roses, hyacinths and hydrangeas. There’s plenty of choice of style and texture when choosing pink flowers for weddings: from classic roses to exotic orchids and cheerful gerberas. More rustic choices are sweet peas, stocks and delphiniums which to be incorporated into wedding flower designs and bouquets. Coral wedding flowers such as roses and ranunculus are lovely, understated shades that work well in bouquets of white and cream flowers.

Orange. Signifying happiness and joy, orange wedding flowers make lovely additions to summer and autumn decorations and bouquets. Whether pale, pastel shades or richer colours like burnt orange wedding flowers, this colour is surprisingly versatile and suits many looks and tastes. Dahlias, chrysanthemums, gerberas and roses are all flowers that come in shades of orange. They work very well with pale pinks, white, creams and greenery in bouquets. Orchids and calla lilies are alternative, more exotic choices that make great wedding buttonholes and corsages. Orange is ideal for autumn when the abundance of fruits, flowers and vegetables makes for a celebratory season perfect for weddings.

Green. There are pale green shades of hydrangeas and tulips (green hydrangeas can complement pink and cream roses) but a green bridal bouquet tends to be about white blooms complemented by green foliage or wedding floral displays made prominently of greenery: vines, leaves, ferns or more modern plants like succulents which can be used to create quirky and unique arrangements. The original wedding bouquets were made up of fragrant herbs to keep evil spirits away, so a green bouquet can be in keeping with an old tradition. Rosemary, sage and lavender are lovely choices and will perfectly complement full white bridal flowers such as roses and peonies. Succulents and mini potted plants make delightful place settings and wedding favours, while greenery such as branches and vines can be used to create a woodland wonderland look.

All the colours of the rainbow awaits when choosing floral designs for the perfect wedding, and there’s no end to where your inspiration could take you!

Corsages and Buttonholes to Suit all Wedding Styles

February 14th, 2017

Whether a single flower or a mini bouquet, corsages make gorgeous addition to wedding outfits. They can harmonise with a dress in paler shades of pink, cream and peach, or can really pop against a wedding dress in dramatic shades of red, purple or yellow. The flowers of the corsage can be mirrored in the more-subtle buttonholes of the groom and groomsmen, and of course in the bride and bridesmaid bouquets and table decorations. It’s a lovely extravagance to have at such an important, romantic event! Wedding corsages can be created to suit any themes and styles.


Rustic. Simple, delicate blooms are ideal for a rustic wedding, invoking ideas of gardens and a care-free spirit. Sprigs of baby’s breath or wildflowers can be used to create corsages and buttonholes, and can play the starring role in wedding bouquets and table decorations. Herbs like rosemary and lavender can make delightful corsages and button holes, adding subtle shades and an aromatic fragrance. Materials like hessian, twine and black ribbon can add to a boho look. Fashionable succulents can even be added to a wedding corsage to create a beautiful, quirky look.

Woodland. There are so many beautiful choices of greenery for wedding flowers that they can be the starring role in your corsages and button holes. Ivy and ferns can be styled into beautiful miniature arrangements, or form the base for floral corsages made up of a flower such as roses. More unusual foliage like thistles can be added (especially appropriate for a Scottish wedding!), and forest features like tiny pine cones, moss and woodland flowers can also be incorporated to create the perfect designs.

Classic. For many planning their wedding, it has to be roses! These versatile, timeless blooms have long been associated with romance. Available in myriad shades, shapes and sizes, it’s easy to create any look for wedding corsages and buttonholes with roses. Pale yellow roses will perfectly harmonise with a white or ivory wedding dress, and a single bloom will make an elegant addition to a dark suit. Ribbon, tulle and delicate embellishments of fine foliage and flowers can add to an classic rose corsage. Calla lilies also make stylish, classic choices for corsages and buttonholes, their white or yellow blooms perfectly fitting with any wedding colour-scheme.

Orchids. These mysterious and exotic blooms make perfect wedding flowers. Their elegant shapes make them fitting for a starring role on a corsage or button hole, and will certainly create a wow-factor. A single orchid can be the perfect choice – and of course there are so many colours to choose from. From classic white or pale yellow, to romantic reds and pinks or unusual purple or green, orchids corsages are available in any bride’s favourite colour. For a more extravagant look, an arrangement of deep pink orchids and intricate greenery will look truly stunning on any bride, adding a dash of colour and drama to her look. A single bloom of these will make a perfect, complimentary buttonhole.

Going To Winter Wonderland: Transform Your Wedding Or Event!  

January 30th, 2017

There is a magical winter wonderland out there, waiting to be discovered. You just need to bundle up, go out and seek it for yourself. Or maybe you want to bring the best parts of nature and the wintry outdoors inside, instead: for you and your guests, your family and friends or coworkers to enjoy!

Be it a private event, party, or even a wedding, Todich Floral Design has some fabulous tips for creating your own winter wonderland and winter themed flower arrangements:


Winter Branches and Wild Flowers

Silver brunia, tallow-berry branches, olive branches, cotton sprigs

For a natural forest and snow-kissed vibe, introduce tallow-berry branches, cotton sprigs and olive branches to any number of flower arrangements. Add brunia berries for an especially frosty effect. These adorable little berries are like tiny pearls or Christmas ornaments, round and silvery grey.

Fresh Greenery For A Naturally Rustic and Fey Feel

Maindenhair fern, camellia leaves, smilax and jasmine vines

Part of the magic and splendor of winter are the flashes of color we see against a white snowy landscape, or the yellow lamplight and brilliant stars that sparkle for us as they stand out against an early dusk, and so illuminating the night.

Add a splash of green and white to your winter bouquets. Wavy leaflets of maidenhair fern, glossy green and almond-shaped camellia leaves, smilax with their clusters of burnished bright red berries, and jasmine vines sporting white flowers and exotic fragrance. Creating a magical ambiance, based in nature, akin to fairyland, that is playful and alluring, requires a careful balance.

Also consider a blue bouquet approach, adding blue, light purple and green flowers to your arrangements.

Winter Fruits And Berries Filling Your Flower Arrangements

Ornamental blackberries, pepperberries, holly berries, kumquats and persimmons

Seasonal fruits and berries, some edible and some not, are a fun way to bring something unique to your flower arrangements, especially if you are striving to create the backdrop and ambiance of your very own winter wonderland. Whether it is a bouquet you want to send as a gift to someone special, or a part of your own wedding flowers and decorations, you can deliver a sprinkling of truly delightful winter magic.

Blackberries, pepperberries and sprigs of holly introduce a dash of colour and festive spirit to your bouquet. Kumquats and persimmons in your holiday flower gifts provide them with a tad-bit of sweetness!

Stimulate The Full Array of Senses

Rosemary, Lavender, Mint, Pine and Cedar…and Feathers, too

No wonderland experience is complete without a full array of sensory stimulation. Now that you have taken care of sight and taste, combine spices, herbs and other accouterments to cover smell and touch.

Let feathers tickle the senses! And rosemary, lavender and mint leaves each lend their own unique, sharp and naturally distinct smells to bouquets and flower decorations. Pine needles and cedar bark carry a fresh, clean woodsy odor that will carry and fill your event, venue or reception hall—all throughout the evening.
