A celebration is a gathering that commemorates a good memory or event, so it’s only natural that people go to great lengths to decorate such parties with attractive and creative items. One of the most consistent components of any celebration has been the floral arrangement, and flowers retain a great significance for just about every possible occasion.
Flowers are a versatile tool for decorating due to the sheer variety of colors, sizes, shapes and styles that they possess. Whether used alone or in combination with other items, flowers can transform any celebration from a happy occasion to a glorious event. Working with flowers is both fun and rewarding, and the possibilities you can come up with means you’ll be able to find something for any events you have planned.
There are a number of different types of arrangements that you can enjoy when it comes time to plan a celebration. The most common and effective are listed here for your convenience, although you can quite literally use any idea that you’re able to come up with.
· Bouquet: The bouquet is the most classic of the floral arrangements you can use to enhance a celebration. Bouquets can be hung on the wall, placed in a vase or arranged in many other creative ways. Whether you are planning a personal party or a community event, a bouquet can work very well to enhance the spirit and enjoyment people will get out of the celebration.
If your celebration has a special them you can most often find ways to integrate it into the bouquet you are designing. When you speak to your florist about creating the bouquet, let them know what your special ideas are. They’ll be able to integrate them into the finished product, creating something that everyone will enjoy greatly.
Depending on the time of year that the celebration is taking place in, you may wish to elect seasonal flowers as the primary content of your bouquets. An assortment of lush spring flowers can be a great compliment to Easter, whereas colorful summer flowers are great for national celebrations and birthdays.
· Table Centerpiece – A centerpiece is essentially a giant and complex bouquet that rests on the center of a table. Most often used in dining rooms or banquet halls (and for the most important celebrations like weddings and graduation ceremonies), a centerpiece allows you great creative lee-way when it comes to designing the content that will be displayed.
Because of the increased size of a centerpiece, you can usually come up with such a combination of appearances that any theme you have planned for your celebration can be accommodated. Statues, candles, balloons, signs and more can all be included and attached to your centerpiece. Of course, flowers are also an integral component, and no centerpiece is complete without.
· Gift Basket – Gift baskets are a great way to say thank you to the host of a celebration and offer a great alternative means of contributing to the happiness and entertainment of everyone present. Fruit baskets are becoming very popular and have the advantage of being both healthy and delicious. You can also design more complex varieties should you desire.
Chocolates and candies are a great option for a gift basket that will be presented at a family gathering like a birthday party, especially if children are present. A gift basket provides something for everyone to enjoy meaning that nobody gets left out. Wine and cheese baskets are another suitable option, and geared more towards an adult celebration.
If you are ordering a gift basket, it is often best to contact your florist and provide them with a day or two of notice. Because of a policy that sees the florist actively acquiring each fresh ingredient from local markets, this added time compensates for unforeseen circumstances wherein a desired item is hard to find.
· Balloons – A favorite for children’s parties and celebrations, a balloon bouquet allows you to send a personalized message while simultaneously providing a cheerful and attractive decoration. These are great for a celebration held within the home, but also make great exterior enhancers for a patio or deck. Latex and the longer-lasting mylar balloons are both popular choices.
Ordering Celebration Decorations
When the time comes to plan and organize a celebration, heading down to visit your florist is a great idea. Let them know what the general theme of the event is and they’ll be able to point out popular and effective arrangements that will suit your needs.
If you are pressed for time you can order over the phone or use the florist’s online site to make a purchase, free of the need to travel. Same-day local delivery guarantees mean you can have your decorations shipped to your house or the location of the celebration the very same day you order them, saving a great deal of time.
