5 Ways To Incorporate Flowers Into Your Table Setting

Flowers make great additions to any table, be it a small family gathering or bigger, more formal events. With so many options available to you, you can style your table in any way that you like. 

Big statement pieces or small pops of colour, fresh flowers on your table will really take the setting to the next level. 

We have put together 5 ways that you can easily add fresh flowers into your table setting.

  1. The Centrepiece
    A table centrepiece is the perfect way to add colour to a table and help bring everything together. The best part about a centrepiece is that it can be anything that you want. The freedom to make a table centrepiece anything you like means you can really get creative. For a long table you may consider a table runner kind of centrepiece that goes all the way down the table, or for small tables consider a large vase with tall sophisticated and elegant flowers. Centrepieces can also be used on small tables, say a two person table. Make your own using a vase or jar and fill it with bursting pops of colour.

  2. Place Holders
    At more formal events or where there is to be a large table, you may consider place holders. Place holders essentially tell people where they will be sitting during the event. Generally this is a piece of card with the person’s name written on it. To create a unique placeholder, incorporate fresh flowers. A single bloom laid gently in front of the placeholder can be enough to make the card stand out.

  3. Napkins
    Any table setting will have a napkin at each seating place. For formal occasions this is generally a cloth napkin folded either into an elegant design or just neatly folded. A fresh flower tucked into the napkin and placed either on the guests plate or next to their knife settings will help bring everything together. Using fresh flowers in this way is extremely sophisticated when using a neutral colour scheme as the flowers will really pop.

  4. On Plates
    If adding a flower into your napkin doesn’t sound appealing then consider a single bloom on your guests plate. Roses look fantastic strategically placed on a china white plate. The best part about this is that guests can easily remove them from the plate when it comes time to eat and your table setting will not be disturbed.

  5. On Chairs
    If your chairs are leaving a bit to be desired but you want to add a bit of flare to them, consider adding some fresh flowers. Flowers can easily be wrapped about the backs of chairs or neatly tied to latticed backing. This is an easy way to help transform tired looking chairs.

Not many hosts think to make fresh flowers the main attraction of a table setting. First thoughts tend to sway towards fancy crockery, cutlery and glassware but using fresh flowers allows you to keep your serving plates and drinkware neutral and letting the flowers add colour while still remaining elegant. For events held at home, this is a great way to change up your table setting each time you host an event without spending thousands on new crockery.

Speak to the FlowerFlow Team

If you are hosting an event and need help choosing the perfect flowers to compliment your table setting, speak to the experts at FlowerFlow. We will be able to help take your table setting to the next level. We can also provide fresh flowers to large events all year around so you can ensure your table setting will be the talk of all your guests for weeks after your event.

Fresh Flowers To Help Sell Your House

Selling your home is probably one of the most stressful things you will do during your lifetime. No matter how much you prepare the home before you sell it, there will always be a touch of doubt that you haven’t done enough. While that more than likely isn’t true, there may be one small touch that you hadn’t thought of.

Fresh flowers in the home during walk through inspections.

There are a number of reasons to include fresh flowers in your home while potential buyers are walking through. 

  1. Aesthetics
    It’s no surprise that flowers add a lot of appeal to any home. Fresh flowers are stunning to look at and add a touch of class and elegance to any property you are trying to sell. A fresh vase strategically placed in the kitchen, bathroom, hallway or by the front entrance will help to grab the attention of visitors coming for inspections, creating a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. Don’t forget, as a seller, you want to create an environment where a buyer can see themselves living. 
  2. Feel
    As we have mentioned in previous articles, fresh flowers have the power to transform a person’s emotions and help unlock creativity, relieve anxiousness and stress to create a calm feeling. This still applies when trying to sell your house. Pairing flowers with the feel of the house will make all the difference. For example, if you are trying to sell a modern property, then invest in a stunning flower arrangement that looks polished and refined. Alternately, if you home has more of a country theme, you may try something a little more rustic that helps play up the country home feel. You will be surprised how much of an impact a flower arrangement can make during these times. 
  3. Smell
    Ok, this one is a bit of a given but we all know how amazing fresh flowers can smell. You may have heard some of the tricks that real estate agents use to make a house smell nice while walk throughs are happening. Some of these include, baking a cake, lighting strong scented candles and plug in wall sprays. While these are all great ways to make a house smell nice, to some it can be overpowering and too much. Remember that not everyone loves a strong scent so fresh flowers placed around the house are a great alternative. Flowers will help make your home smell nice and fresh without overpowering potential buyers.  
  4. Surrounds
    What about the outside of your home? You don’t have to have a large backyard to benefit from some foliage outside. While this doesn’t have to be anything over the top, a splash of green colour will help draw the eye and make the area more appealing. Around the front entrance of the home consider neutrals such as roses, lilies and jasmine, all of which has been proven to increase curb appeal. Just remember not to overdo it. Less is best unless you want to give off jungle vibes!

If you are selling your home make sure you contact the team at Flower Flow to help you choose the best flower arrangements to help increase your homes appeal. Our team will work with you to create stunning pieces that will last for more than one open home and help show your home at its all time best.

What To Consider When Choosing Flowers For The Office

Fresh flowers are a great addition to any office. No matter the size, an office will thrive with the addition of colourful flowers to brighten up the working space. Not only will your workspace look brighter but employees with benefit from fresh flowers as well.

There are a number of benefits that employees get from having fresh flowers in the workplace. These include improved concentration, creativity and overall mental health. There are, however, a few things to consider before you jump in and choose your fresh flowers.

  1. Where Will the Flowers be Displayed
    Before you think about what flowers you want, you need to think about where you will display your fresh flowers. This is a big factor in the decision process as you want the flowers to fit into the space, not stick out like a sore thumb. If you are looking for a boardroom table arrangement then consider smaller bouquets or longer runner style arrangements that still allow for easy conversation. Alternately, if you are looking for an arrangement that will sit in your entrance way then you may want to look for a taller more vibrant display.

  2. How Long Do You Want The Flowers
    Longevity is another key point that you need to think about. If your flower arrangement is only being used for an event or celebration date then you can take advantage of pretty much any flower available from your florist. However, if you are looking for a longer-lasting display, speak to your florist about options available for longer-lasting blooms. Carnations and Chrysanthemums are a great addition to any long-lasting fresh flower arrangement.

  3. Colour Scheme
    Does your office or workplace have a colour scheme? Consider this as part of your flower arrangement. Your fresh blooms can work harmoniously with surrounding settings and complement your working area. Looking for something more subtle? No worries! Working with a reputable florist will ensure that your colour scheme is as subtle or as vibrant as you like.

  4. Consider Employees
    Hang on, how can flowers affect employees? For some people fresh flowers are beautiful to look at, for others fresh flowers can be an allergy nightmare. Consider your employees before you invest in office blooms. If you do have any employees that suffer from allergies and you still want to invest in a stunning flower arrangement then speak to your florist. They will be able to advise what blooms are hypoallergenic.

  5. Care and Maintenance
    Before your new blooms arrive in your office make sure you appoint an employee to care and look after the fresh flowers. While it’s easy to set and forget, fresh flowers need a little bit of TLC to keep them looking their best. Freshwater and removal of any old foliage will ensure your blooms are kept looking their best for as long as possible. You can learn more about looking after fresh flowers here.

  6. Speak to Your Florist
    If you have been tasked with organising the office flowers but aren’t sure what you need then speak to your local fresh flower supplier. They have the knowledge and expertise to help you put together a stunning flower arrangement that everyone in your workplace will love!

Upcycling Your Fresh Flowers

These days there is a lot of focus on recycling and upcycling our old items in order to become more environmentally friendly and “green”. Generally, when you think of upcycling you would think of furniture and other household knick-knacks that can be reused, but what about your flowers?

Just like many other items you can upcycle your old flowers. Wondering how you can do it? Read on.

Flower Pressing
Flower pressing is something that you probably have done as a kid one rainy day to keep yourself occupied for a few minutes, but, flower pressing is coming back in a big way. Pressing flowers is a great way to keep flowers that you have an attachment to eg, wedding flowers, anniversary flowers or even birthday flowers.

All you need to press your flowers is either a wooden flower press or a big heavy book. Put the flowers that you want to press under your book or in your flower press and leave for around 3 weeks. This will flatten the flower and dry it out, leaving you with a perfect sentimental keepsake.

Drying Flowers
Drying flowers is a really simple way to preserve your beautiful blooms. Simple to do, drying your flowers will make them last for ages and add a rustic look and feel to the area you present them. Use a rubber band or piece of string to tie the stems of your flowers together then hang them upside down in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. Over the coming weeks, you will notice the flowers dry up and the colours of your blooms change. Dried flowers can last years so make sure to put them on display for everyone to enjoy.

Homemade Potpourri
If you love potpourri then why not make your own with your favourite blooms. Using your already dried flowers add them to an old jam or mason jar and add in any extra herbs you like. Essential oil can also be included to help make your potpourri smell stronger. Put the lid on your jar and leave for a few weeks. The longer you leave your potpourri the stronger your potpourri jar will smell.


Body Scrubs
Fancy yet simple homemade body scrubs are extremely popular. If you are looking to dry some of your flowers out then you can use them to incorporate into your own DIY body scrub. Roses and rose petals are mainly used in body scrubs but you can use any flower of choice. All you need is coconut oil, sugar, essential oil of your choice (optional) and your dried flowers. Using dried flowers pretties up the scrub and makes a fantastic gift with a feminine touch.

Add To Your Bath
If you love to indulge in a bath every now and then, rose petals are a great addition. Not only do they help add hydration to the skin but they look amazing floating on top of the water. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to the water or a bath oil of your choice to add calming smells and extra hydration to the bath.

Flowers For Men – Choosing The Right Blooms

Times are changing and flowers are no longer seen as a gift just for women. With so many fresh flower choices available these days, there is always something for everyone. Masculine flowers are a great way to show someone that you care without them feeling like they have received a gift meant for someone else.

White Lilies
White lilies are a great flower choice for a man as the colour is very neutral. White lilies can easily fit into a masculine home or office setting without seeming too out of place. There are also numerous benefits to having fresh flowers in your home or office, such as adding a calm touch to the room and helping to improve concentration when focusing on difficult tasks.

Gerberas
These flowers are said to bring cheerfulness to the receiver. So, if this is the idea you are after then why not consider an arrangement containing gerberas. Consider more masculine colours such as deep reds, whites and oranges. Steer clear of pastel colours as these tend to feel more feminine.

Peace Lily
While this isn’t something that you could put into a bouquet, a Peace Lily plant is a great start for any man who isn’t used to receiving fresh flowers. The Peace Lily plant is full of green foliage with hints of white from the flower itself. A subtle piece which can be brought into any room or office. Acting as an air purifier, this plant would perfectly suit an office space to help with focus, concentration and creativity.

Bird of Paradise
More of a statement piece, bird of paradise is perfect to send to a man. It is often said that men look for statement pieces over what looks pretty and nice so, the bird of paradise makes for a perfect choice. 

Roses
While roses are often given as a romantic gesture, roses are perfect for men too. Simple yet elegant, you can’t go wrong with an arrangement of roses. As previously mentioned, stick to more masculine and neutral colours such as whites, oranges, deep reds and even purples. 

Flowers and Their Meanings
Flowers are chosen for a number of different reasons however you can’t go wrong when choosing your fresh flowers based on their colour meaning. Read our previous blog on fresh flowers and their meanings to learn more about what flower clours suit your needs.

Still Not Sure?
Speak to the experts at FlowerFlow today, we can help you create a stunning yet masculine flower arrangement for any occasion, for any man.

Fresh Flowers Allergy Sufferers Will Love

Like many of us who suffer from seasonal allergies and hayfever, coming in contact with fresh flowers can be a recipe for disaster. Runny eyes and nose, constant sneezing and itchy eyes are just some of the symptoms that come with allergies. While extremely uncomfortable and annoying, allergy symptoms aren’t a great look if you are attending a special event such as a wedding, event fundraiser, birthday celebration or even a funeral. So, are there any flowers that are actually hypoallergenic?

Yes! Even if you suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies, there are fresh blooms that you can enjoy without fear of a reaction. 

Why Do You Suffer From Allergies

Basically put, some flowers rely on the wind to help their pollen travel in order for the plant or flower to reproduce. These plants are monoecious which means either male or female. If you suffer from allergies then dioecious plants are your new best friend. These are plants that do not rely on the wind for reproduction and pollination and in turn do not cause allergic reactions. 

Roses

You can’t go wrong with a bouquet of roses.These stunning flowers are very low on pollen which makes them a great choice for allergen sufferers. A versatile bloom which can be used in a number of ways from simple thank you flowers to wedding bouquets and table centre pieces. Roses can hold their own in any floral arrangement. Best of all, you will be spoilt for colour choice as roses come in hundreds of colours options. 

Lilies

If roses aren’t quite up your alley then why not indulge in abeautiful Lily arrangement.There are some members of the Lily family that produce low pollen so are great for allergies. The best part about Lilies is the pollen pods can easily be removed. All you need is a tissue and soft touch to gently pull the pods off of their stalk. Like roses, Lilies come in lots of different colours, from vibrant yellows to deep blush reds and pinks. 

Carnations

Add a pop of colour and texture to your bouquet with Carnations. Ruffled and crimped petals really help bring floral arrangements together and that extra bit of elegance. Available in bright or pastel colours, you will be able to find a Carnation that perfectly suits your design vision.

Hydrangeas

Add volume and sophistication to your arrangement. Hydrangeas are perfect for allergy sufferers. Low on pollen but high on colour and vibrancy, you will love how full and voluminous Hydrangeas can look. Experiment with purples and blues to really make your bouquet of flowers pop and stand out from the rest.

Tulips

Tulips are one of those flowers that can stand by itself. Stunning on their own or part of a floral arrangement, Tulips are absolutely fantastic for eliminating allergy symptoms. Create a Tulip bouquet and add in a host of different colours. Experiment with whites, yellows, oranges, dusty pinks and purples. Tulips make the perfect bouquet of flowers for a friend or loved one.

What to Consider When Buying Flowers for a Hospital Patient

If you have ever been a hospital patient or have been to visit someone in hospital you will know that the rooms are generally pretty bare and boring. There are a number of reasons to send someone flowers during their hospital stay, but there are a few things to consider first.

Before we dive into the nitty gritty, let’s point out the reasons why fresh flowers are great for hospital patients.

  1. They brighten up the room
    This point may seem pretty straight forward but fresh flowers are a great way to brighten up a hospital room. Patients often find themselves staring at the walls with nothing to do during their time in hospital. A bouquet of flowers will help give the patient something to focus on that will add a bit of colour to their day.
  2. A patient will feel special
    If you are ill enough to have to go into hospital then it’s understandable that any hospital patient will feel a bit down and sad. Sending a bunch of flowers to a friend or loved one is a great way to let them know that you are thinking of them during their time in hospital. While no one likes having to stay in hospital, there are some people that find hospital a very overwhelming place so knowing that someone is thinking of them and taken the time to send flowers can help take the edge off.
  3. It gives you a reason to visit
    Hospital days can feel very long between doctor and nurse visits. Fresh flowers give you a great excuse to pop in for a visit. The patient will be happy to see a face they recognise while helping to break the day up. Delivering the flowers yourself will also mean you get the see the result that your flowers have.

What to consider

While these are three great reasons to give your friend or loved one a mood and room brightening bunch of fresh flowers, there are a few things you need to consider before picking the flowers for your arrangement.

  1. Check what part of the hospital the patient is in
    All hospitals accept flowers, right? Wrong! Flowers are generally accepted on general wards however it is important to check first. Emergency, Intensive Care, Burns and some Natal wards do not allow flowers. This is because they can pose a risk to anyone who has a high chance of contracting infection. For this reason, many hospitals will refuse all sorts of fresh flowers.
  2. Think about flower choice
    Many people have pollen allergies. While your patient may not have any pollen allergies, other patients, nurses or doctors on the ward might. Stick to flowers that don’t have any obvious pollen exposure. Safe flowers include roses, carnations and chrysanthemums. This is because the pollen is deep inside the flower and not exposed like other flowers such as Lilies.
  3. Don’t choose a big arrangement
    While it may seem tempting to buy the biggest bouquet that you can afford, a small to medium size arrangement is best. Don’t forget that hospital rooms are bare for a reason, too much “stuff” in the room can get in the way of nurses and doctors performing their jobs. So, smaller arrangements are preferred.
  4. Provide a vase or boxed arrangement
    Not all hospitals will have a vase or glass that flowers can go in. If you have the option to choose a vase or boxed arrangement then that is your best bet to ensure your flowers are able to be displayed in your loved ones hospital room.

Speak to Your Florist

Next time you are looking for a bouquet of flowers to send to a hospital then speak to your local florist. They will have a good idea of what hospitals accept flowers and if so, what rules surround acceptable flowers. Before you know it your loved one will have a bright hospital room that they won’t might spending a bit of time in.

4 Easy Ways to Help Beat the Winter Blues

Many people report feeling like they have the winter blues as soon as the cooler months roll around. While some people are able to carry on as normal through seasonal changes, others find winter a hard season to get through.

Generally this is put down to the lack of sunlight. Compared to the summer months, winter sees a lot less sunlight, making it harder for people to feel motivated and ready to face the day.

Signs You May Have The Winter Blues

There are a few signs that you may be fighting the winter blues. A few of these include:

  • Feeling less motivated than normal
  • Low on energy
  • Wanting to sleep more than normal
  • Feeling more irritable than normal
  • Not wanting to see your friends or participate in your day to day activities
  • Overeating or the want/need to eat unhealthy foods like chocolate and chips compared to your normal eating habits.

What Can You Do To Fight the Winter Blues?

While many people may agree they feel the above symptoms more during the cooler months there are a few things you can do to help feel a bit better.

  1. Get outside in the sunshine
    While this may seem obvious it can be easier said than done. Getting outside into the sunshine can really help to boost your mood. Unfortunately, for those who work 9-5 it can be hard to get sunlight before or after work. Try to get outside for 15 minutes during your lunch break in order to soak up a bit of the sun. You will be really surprised how much better you feel after a dose of sunlight.
  2. Watch Your Diet
    Eating a healthy diet during the winter months is important to help ensure you feel your best. While it may feel tempting to reach for junk food, it doesn’t do anything to help improve your mood. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to help feel light and healthy. Foods high in saturated fats and sugar work to spike sugar levels giving you a “crash” where you will often feel worse than before and more likely to want to reach for more junk food.
  3. Exercise Outside
    Invest in some warm winter clothing so you can get outside regardless of the weather. While it may be tempting to want to stay inside in front of the fire or heater, it is important you stay active. As little as 15 minutes walking a day can help to boost your mood. Plus, you don’t have to exercise during daylight hours to feel the benefits!
  4. Bring the outside in
    Fresh flowers are a great way to help bring some colour into your home or workplace. Flowers have been proven to help boost your mood and are a great way to add light to a dark room. Invest in a fresh floral arrangement that you can place anywhere within your house or workplace. Choose places that you frequently go but also consider places that you may not normally place flowers. Take a moment to take in the colours, textures and smell of your arrangement in a moment of self care. You will be surprised how much you benefit from fresh flowers.

Wedding Flower Arrangements – Churches, Gardens & Beaches

Choosing your wedding flowers is one of the more enjoyable parts of wedding planning. With so many options to choose from, the world is your oyster! Working with a florist will make the job easier and ensure that you have an expert on your side that knows the ins and outs of wedding flowers.

There are some points to consider when it comes to choosing the right flowers. You can read more about that here. A major part of choosing the right flowers for your wedding day comes down to the ceremony location.

Church Weddings

Fresh flowers in a church can look absolutely stunning. Rich dark colours with splashes of white really stand out amongst the colours generally found within a church. If you have already picked your colour scheme your wedding florist will be able to help you choose fresh flowers that suit the theme and also look great in a church.

There are quite a few flower placement options with a church that you may want to consider. First is the church alter, the part of the church where the bride and groom stand during the ceremony. Here is a great place to really show off a couple of large fresh flower arrangements. These work as a kind of backdrop to the bride and groom and is a great way to tie in the colour scheme.

The ends of pews are another great place to add some pops of colour. These are generally smaller floral arrangements that are tied on or placed at the end of pews. This also gives the impression of a “walk way” in which the bridal party walk down. It’s a great way to help guests feel like they too are part of the overall wedding.

Depending on the size of the church you may want to add some splashes of colour around the room. This can include the entrance way of the church and also outside of the church. Most couples will take photos out the front of the church so a few floral arrangements outside can make for great photos.

Garden Weddings

Garden weddings are fantastic when it comes to floral arrangements. An outdoor wedding gives the bride and groom lots of chances to include different colours and textures from fresh flowers. Working with the surrounding gardens can help to make your colour theme choice easier. Some gardens feature certain colours heavily throughout giving your florist great options to work with.

The good thing about a garden wedding is the chance to incorporate fresh blooms into your bridal arch setting. Some gardens may already have an alter/bridal arch which you can add floral arrangements too. Others may not have a static alter, this means more room to play with flowers. Creating your own arch out of flowers can really add to the romance of the day. The best part about dressing your own bridal arch means you can dress it up as much or as little as you like.

Similar to a church wedding, you can also add small arrangements to the guest seating. Garden weddings generally have less seating than a church wedding, however, still benefit from some colour. If you have individual seating a small arrangement can be added to each seat or you can add a slightly larger arrangement to the seat closest to the aisle.

Speak to your florist about adding in some loose petals that can be scattered down the aisle or used to throw by guests as the newly married bride and groom walk back down the aisle.

Beach Weddings

Often more casual than a church wedding, beach weddings can be just as elegant. Similar to a garden wedding, a beach setting allows you more options when it comes to choosing your wedding flowers. Bright and dark colours can be used here as the colours work well against the light coloured sand.

Beach weddings require you to provide your own bridal arch. This will create a backdrop that has to compete with the ocean in the background. Make sure you choose flowers that will stand out against the water, otherwise your arch will be lost amongst the similar colours. Your florist will be able to help you pick colours that work well with the beach setting and that stand out without being too overpowering.

Loose petals are great at beach weddings as they can be used to create an aisle for the bride to walk down. You have the option to go as safe or as bold as you like here as the neutral colour of the sand will make a great blank canvas. Using loose petals may reduce the need for floral arrangements at the end of each row of chairs but that is completely up to the bride and groom.

Work With Your Florist

Your florist is the expert when it comes to fresh wedding flowers and arrangements. Walk them through your wedding venue and they will be able to make suggestions that meet your needs and enhance your wedding location.

Flower Crowns – Why They’re More Than a Fashion Trend

Flower crowns have come back into fashion over the past 5 years. While they are widely popular at the moment, the idea of a flower crown or flower halo is nothing new. Wearing a flower crown has been dated as far back as ancient Greece.

While today flower crowns are more often worn as an accessory, there is a lot more to the flower crown than you may think.

The Ancient Greeks Wore Flower Crowns for Multiple Reasons

Flower crowns were extremely popular during ancient Greek times. Often worn during ceremonies as a way to honor the gods, the Greeks favoured flower crowns as a way of showing respect and achievement to army victors. Queue images of Julius Caesar and his laurel leaf wreath.

Medieval Times Saw a Decline in Flower Crowns

During this time period flower crowns became almost non-existent. The reason being was Pagan rituals often used flower crowns as a way to honor and adorn statues of pagan gods during religious ceremonies. To be seen wearing a flower crown at this time could see you tried and convicted of being a witch!

The Victorian Era Revived the Humble Flower Crown

Queen Victoria brought the flower crown back into fashion as she wore a stunning orange blossom flower crown in her hair during her 1840 wedding to Prince Albert. Like the white wedding dress, from this time on it became popular for brides to wear an orange flower crown on their wedding day.

Modern Day Flower Crowns

Modern day flower crowns have come a long way from simple laurel wreaths. These days we see flower crowns being worn at weddings, festivals, baby showers and even out to birthday celebrations. Why are flower crowns so popular? Well, besides the fact that they look stunning they are so easy to customise.

A flower crown can be as bold or as simple as the wearer likes. Use a crown as a splash of colour to a black dress or go really over the top to stand out at your local music festival. The options are endless.

How to Create a Perfect Flower Crown

Creating a flower crown is a fun way to bring an outfit together. With the help of a local florist you will be able to assemble a visually spectacular piece that everyone will love.

  1. Choose the right flowers
    Choosing the right flowers for your flower crown is essential to ensure your crown fits in with your overall look. Think about what you will be wearing on the day and the occasion that you will be wearing the crown. For example, as a bridal flower crown you may prefer a more simple, elegant design that fits in with your dress. Compare this to a music festival where you are more likely to want a design that stands out and makes people pay attention.Your florist will be able to recommend the best flowers for the occasion. If there is a colour scheme, they will also be able to help tie everything together.
  2. Get the timing right
    Fresh flowers give a real edge to a flower crown but they need to be kept fresh. Picking up your flower crown too far in advance may compromise the look and integrity of your crown. If you do need your crown a day before the event, speak to your florist to see how you can help keep your flowers fresh and looking their best ready for the event day.
  3. Consider two crowns
    Two crowns you say! Yep, that’s right! For long events such as a wedding, you may want to consider two crowns. A bride often has to be ready hours in advance of her wedding. This means your crown is generally on well before you walk down the aisle. Come the time for your reception, depending on the climate, your flower crown may be looking a bit worse for wear. Seeing as you will be taking pictures all day, a second crown can be used to refresh your look. This is also a great way to change up your look during the day. A smaller, delicate crown can be worn during the ceremony and a brighter bigger crown can be worn when it’s time to party!

No matter what the event, a flower crown is the perfect accessory. A fresh flower crown is wearable for anyone of any age. Speak to the team at FlowerFlow to see how we can help make your flower crown dreams come to life.
