Floral And Fabulous

19 September, 2019

Spring has sprung and the wild flowers are beginning to bloom. The leaves are coming back to life and everyone has started venturing outside again now the cold air has that crisp scent of Spring. We all know that smell; freshly cut grass hits your nostrils, the smell of floral arrangements hit your face as you wander the street. But it doesn’t have to be just an outside smell. Why don’t you gather the smell of Spring and add to your home?

We love dinner parties and inviting friends and family over to our homes and having a laugh while feasting on all the food. Before everyone arrives you go around the table and think ‘there’s something missing.’ Plates, check; cutlery, check; champagne flutes, check; why does it look bland? You need a floral masterpiece in the middle of your table to bring Spring inside and bring the vibe of the party up.

The smells and the glorious sight of a beautifully prepared bunch of flowers can make your house (and your dinner party) pop. But how do you know what to add in the middle of your table? Too big and you can’t see your guests on the other side of the table; too small and seriously what’s the point? Let us give you a few pointers on what’s what in the floral playground.

Colour
You want the colour to stand out and bring a sparkle to the party. However, you don’t want it to be too bright it’s the only thing people stare at during the entire gathering. It needs to be the correct amount of neutral colouring, plus pops of colour. Adding white flowers and/or babies breath to your arrangement, you can fill it with neutrals without it being overpowering.

Size
We all know that size does matter. Your arrangement needs to be the perfect size that is suited to your room as well as your table. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, why not have 2 half sized bundles at each end of your table? Although, one big statement piece is definitely the talk of the party. If you pop down to Chatswood Flower Market, they have everything you desire to make a beautiful bouquet for your banquet.
