If you really want to impress your guests at your next event, whether it is an Easter party, a wedding or a baby shower, make sure you pay special attention to the flower arrangements. If you are planning an event, you have probably spent plenty of time arranging the seating chart, ordering the menu and scheduling the toasts and speeches. But have you put enough thought into the flowers? The flower arrangements should be a backdrop of your event, but should still be noticeable by all. They will, after all, be in every photo of your special day. Flowers can act as beautiful centerpieces, garlands, decorative runners along the banisters and large arrangements on the tables by the entrance. They can be the small details that really tie together the entire event.
By choosing your flowers wisely, you can create the perfect atmosphere, no matter what the occasion you are celebrating. And if you select them based on seasonality, you can save yourself a pretty penny as well. That is because when flowers are in season, they tend to be more affordable. They won’t have to be grown under special conditions and they won’t be flown in from distant locations. While it is nice to sometimes have exotic plants or flowers gracing your table or front room, it is even nicer to have seasonal blossoms that bring a bit of the outdoors in for you and your guests to enjoy. Using seasonal flowers can really enhance the mood, bringing out the best in everyone.
For a winter wedding, you may want roses and freesia to decorate your event. Winter jasmine is another good option when it comes to a winter event. Spend some time researching what is available and what will be blooming when it is time for your event, and you can find yourself amid a winter wonderland of blossoms. Colours are important too, as they can connote the season as much as the blossoms. White flowers evoke wintry feelings and you can enhance them with holly berries or ivy.
In the spring, your choices are far greater. All the blossoming fruit trees, such as apple, cherry or even the lovely apricot will display delicate, fragile flowers during this time of year. Of course, we associate spring with lovely pastel shades of pink, purple, yellow and white, which evoke sunshine and new growth. Daffodils, tulips and daisies are some of the most popular and most symbolic of spring.
