’Tis the season for entertaining! Whether you’re hosting friends and family, coordinating a corporate holiday party, or getting a head start on planning that big New Year’s Eve bash, decorations are a huge part of every celebration — and florals are the crowning glory of every party.
To help you set the scene for your next big get together, we asked the event experts at our resident event venue LEVEL THREE to give us the scoop on which floral looks are trending this year. Read on for their top picks and how you can use them at your next shin-dig.
These seasonally-inspired centerpieces spotlight vibrant orange, red and yellow gourds, chocolate brown pinecones, vibrant fall leaves, and grey-green moss to create a beautiful autumnal scene-stealer. If you want your centerpiece to look more wintery, swap out the fall foliage for bright red holly berries and spruce boughs — keep the pinecones, though.
If simplicity is your cup of tea, this arrangement should suit your style perfectly. The best part? It’s super budget-friendly, yet looks classic and sophisticated. All you have to do is fill a nice pitcher with some sprigs of berries or acorn sprays.
Looking for a fresh and elegant
alternative to a floral centerpiece? Gather some seasonal fruit — think apples, pears, pomegranates and pumpkins, depending on which season you’d like to highlight — and group them together in a bowl or right on the table itself. After the party, you can turn the arrangement into a healthy and delicious snack.
Here’s one trend we’ve noticed popping up all over Instagram: Christmas trees decked out in flowers instead of traditional ornaments. Fresh blooms are great for a one-night event (you’ll have to switch them out after a few days). If you’re looking to create something that will last through the entire holiday season with minimal maintenance, opt for paper flowers.
