Flowers come in various types and colors, and choosing the right ones for the occasion can sometimes seem overwhelming. Roses in pink, white, or red; marigolds or sunflowers for a more natural-looking setting. How do you choose?
Your flower choice should always enhance the theme of your setting and bring your décor alive.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect flowers for your next party!
Choose Flowers with a Subtle Scent
Highly scented flowers all over a room can disturb some of your guests, particularly during a social gathering or cocktail party where many will be wearing their own fragrances. The floral fragrance that exudes from an abundance of flowers can be overpowering and may irritate those with allergies.
Consult with your florist to find out which flowers have more subtle scents and would be more appropriate for a social gathering!
Be Cautious with Tall Flowers, Trees, and Plants
Remember that flowers or plants that are too tall should not be used for dinner party centerpieces. They will obstruct the view of your guests and get in the way of natural socializing during dinner. Tall flowers and plants can be used for walk-around gatherings, where your guests are less likely to sit down the entire evening.
Small bouquets of multiple varieties or striking single flowers work well on dinner tables. There is enough of a floral décor to be noticed and admired by your guests, but not enough to be distracting.
Consider Your Décor Colors
If your party décor is minimalist or natural, flowers can be used to add that splash of color every design craves. White flowers can be stunning and elegant if you are throwing a more fabulous and colorful event. When you contrast the colors of your flowers with your décor, you create a powerful and stylish look where no aspect of your design goes unnoticed.
