Inspiration for Event Planners: Enhancing Events with Flowers

Floral arrangementsWith warmer just around the corner, nothing says spring like flowers. The good news is that, whether you have a generous or limited budget, event planners can enhance event decor with flowers. Here is some inspiration.

Go big or go home.....

For some events, it's important to pull out all the stops. A simple color palette is what ensures that  these bold arrangements are luxurious and elegant.

Petals can be perfectly pleasing....

Never underestimate the power of petals. Strategically placed, they can create simple centerpieces or beautify displays on wedding cakes.

Keep it simple....

Petals or a single flower floating in water a glass container that reflects the glow of candlelight sets an enchanting tone without breaking your budget.

A coaster, a flower (or blossom) and some tea lights are sometimes all that are needed to add a finishing touch to  table settings.

Blossoms in Bloom....

In Japan, it's Sakura season. At this time of year, cherry blossoms add decorative elements to indoor and outdoor events. Blossoms can also work their magic for your clients.

Creative Clusters....

Take their breath away....

My personal bias is that baby's breath can elevate just about any floral arrangement. It's not just for wedding bouquets.

Keep Current with Colors

A current color palette keeps just about any event fresh and appealing. Cvent Event Blog recently showcased Pantone's color palette for the event industry in 14 Hot Colors for 2013 Spring and Summer Events. Garden Writer and Speaker, Maria Zampini, has prepared a helpful guide identifying specific flowers and plants that match 2013 spring and summer Pantone Colors.
