Color Palette for Floral Design

When your planning for a special event, one thing that you’ll have to consider is the color palette of all your event decorations. Also, take into account what the venue will look like in order to match the vibe.

Florals add a wide range of colors to an event but it’s easy to get overwhelmed. First, try to sit down and make a list of what you would like to purchase. Then stick to that list to avoid going over budget.

You can add a pop of bright color to add a burst of fun or keep it classy with more muted tones such as white or pale pastels.

Seasonal Arrangements

For the fall you might want to consider arrangements of mums or sunflowers. You can add other fall accents such as pumpkins to tie in the season. In the winter, you can try wreaths, holly, and poinsettias.

By choosing flowers that are in-season for your event, they will not only be more readily available, but they also are less expensive. Keep in mind your area may have different flowers available than others.

Pricier Blooms

No matter what flowers you are considering for your event, you can always limit your expense by choosing a mixture of less expensive flowers with pricier blooms.

The more expensive flowers tend to be roses, calla lilies, peonies, tulips, hydrangeas, gardenias, orchids, and lily of the valley. These flowers are most commonly requested, but can quickly raise the cost of your decor.

Ignite Emotion

When choosing the perfect arrangements for your event you should ask yourself how you want guests to feel. Are you trying to create a calm, soothing atmosphere? Maybe you want your floral arrangements to display prestige and luxury.

The types of flowers you choose as well as how they are arranged around a venue can create a variety of emotions for attendees. Studies show that colors have a direct affect on your mood. That’s why when it comes to your important corporate event or meeting, the right floral arrangements are key.

Impress your guests with vibrant colors and keep the energy up. Or choose lavish displays that show your business is thriving. If you’re not sure how to invoke a certain emotion at your event, you can always speak to a professional designer.

Think Outside the Bloom
