The right event décor can transport guests to another world. And, the easiest way to transform any space is with flowers. Whether you’re looking to throw an extravagant, Great Gatsby-themed bash or a small, minimalist elopement ceremony, the right flowers can make a world of difference. Here’s a list of 5 popular event themes and some floral style pairings that take them from meh to amazing.
Refined & Sophisticated
When it comes to black-tie events, you can’t go wrong with the classics. But no one said classic should be boring. An elegant spread of flower arrangements featuring white roses or peonies creates an elevated, expensive look. Also, having one large focal point flower arrangement either in an entryway or in the center of the room will draw eyes and dazzle without crossing the line into looking showy. To give smaller flower arrangements more pop, use elongated vases that really add drama.
Just because you’re going for a rustic, woodsy look doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice elegant details. Sunflowers instantly add a pop of color and a farm feeling to any flower arrangement. Greenery is also an attractive and diverse option when it comes to creating a rustic theme. From eucalyptus and ferns to a variety of grasses, there are so many ways to incorporate greenery into arrangements or even use stand-alone. You can also incorporate reaching branches into arrangements to make them bigger statement pieces while keeping your natural theme. For the ultimate farm-chic feel, swap out glass vases for tin buckets, mason jars, or wicker baskets.
Boho is the new go-to when it comes to shabby-chic trends. Add a bit southwestern spice to your arrangements by mixing textures and colors to create that “a little bit of everything” look. Deep-colored flowers like dark red roses mixed with pastel florals like peach peonies and lots of greenery are a perfect combination. Long, flat greenery spreads make great boho centerpieces, and unconventional vases such as clay ceramics enhance the overall earthy feel.
Tranquil & Clean
Less is the new more. Many are choosing minimalist décor to create stylish, simple spaces. Eucalyptus and white roses have become the staple when it comes to minimalist florals. Succulents and indoor plants are also a unique minimalist décor option that creates a tranquil feeling. Look for clear glass vases with hard geometric lines, and shoot for multiple small, short arrangements rather than a grand, statement piece.
Full Gatsby Glam
A little party never killed nobody! If you’re looking to create the most luxurious, extravagant event space, then tall, grandiose arrangements are a must. Look for flower arrangements that incorporate draped beads, pearls, or gems for a glam feel. Long, white feathers easily create height but also add a funky, extravagant edge to centerpieces. As far as vases, go for a dramatic look by using candelabras to sit flowers on top of or skinny, metal vases.
