5 Ways to Elevate Your Party Using Florals

If you want to know one of our favorite ways to dress up a party, just take a look at our photos and you will see that we’re flower CRAZY. The truth of the matter is that flowers are the easiest way to bring your party decor from bland to grand- as long as you know how to use them! Today, we’re sharing our favorite ways to boost your flower game.

1. Amazing Centerpiece Arrangements

Okay so we know this sounds obvious, but having a stunning centerpiece on your main table could be everything you need to dress up the room. You can then add matching single stem bud vases in other areas of the party to tie the look together, just like we did for Mandy’s amazing Backyard Baby Shower.

2. Romantic Floral Table Runners

Easier said than done? No way- DO try this at home, kids. The best option is to use a linen to protect your table and line the middle area with your greenery. We love to use ruscus or eucalyptus, but there are lots of options out there that can survive with little water while you wait for your guests to arrive. Then, add your pops of color with great flowers, like roses or peonies. Be sure to have floral water tubes on hand for ultimate freshness. Weave the stems together and hide the tubes under the greenery. Decorate the rest of the room with the same flowers in vases to tie it all together, like we did for this intimate last minute wedding.

3. Floral Topped Cake

Honestly, it’s simpler than it looks. After arranging our florals in vases, we use the leftovers for this favorite party trick. We trim the stem down to about 1-2 inches, rinse thoroughly in the sink, and start sticking them right into the cake. If your cake is small and your flowers are big, cover the top entirely, like we did for this romantic Dinner Party for Two! Otherwise, choose one edge of the cake, place the largest flower in the middle surrounded by smaller flowers cascading to the sides.

4. All White Everything

Flower Power is a real thing- if you want to make a serious statement, curate your flower selection to an extremely specific color. As much as we love every color of the rainbow, sometimes picking one theme will give your party a big WOW factor. We created this stunning floral runner for a Dreamy First Birthday and we couldn’t get over how amazing it turned out.

5. Well Rounded Floral Color Scheme

Choosing a color scheme can be difficult when planning a theme, and sometimes narrowing it down is the hardest part. Don’t feel like you have to restrict yourself, either, as long as the colors remain consistent in every part of the party. For this beautiful First Fiesta, we choose pink, yellow, and orange. We incorporated those colors into the bud vases along the table, on top of the cake, in vases on the food table, and even into the beautiful balloon garland.
