More than Flowers - Incorporating Fruits & Vegetables into a Design Plan

Who says your decor just has to be flowers?! Incorporating other elements into your event, party, or wedding flowers can add an element of novelty or even elegance to the overall design.

Elements like fruits and vegetables can tie your design plan together. They might hint towards a particular location. For example, lemons for a Mediterranean inspired event can add a fresh, bright pop of color and texture or Grapes for an event at a vineyard would pull in the surrounding landscape.

These additions may also ground the floral design in a particular theme. Mushrooms mixed with mosses, grasses, or twigs would create the feeling of a forest floor on the table for a rustic, outdoor themed wedding. Touches like berries or garden vegetables would be perfect for a sweet & refined garden party.

In other ways, the addition of fruits and vegetables to a floral design may simply be sentimental or aesthetic. Your first date was at a wine-tasting? Grapes of course! You simply love the natural texture of an artichoke, go for it!

Whatever your desire or inspiration the addition of fruits and vegetables may be an excellent and (delicious!) choice to incorporate into your overall design plan. Below, we have just a few of the many options to inspire you!

2. Unique Flatware/Glasses
These gold rimmed glasses and chargers are the perfect solution for a simple and elegant look. The gold detail adds a hint of warmth to the overall setting and the clear glass chargers allow the patterned tablerunner to shine through. The smallest details make the largest impression!

3. Different arrangements for each table
A large trend for 2016 is varied centerpieces for each table. Whether some tables have high centerpieces and others have low centerpieces or every arrangement is different, this can be a great way to add visual interest to your event overall. At the event pictured below, every vase has a different pop of color and different blossom. This can create a playful look for a fun party.

5. Blossoms at each place setting
For a really over-the-top look, add blossoms at each place setting. This could be as simple as a stick of rosemary, some delicate petals, or a striking floral stack as pictured. Blossoms at each place setting create a cohesive look and make an event feel personalized.

6. Think up!
Who says flowers have to be on the table? It may take some planning, but floral chandeliers or custom hanging arrangements like this one can create a spectacular look at any event. Custom-made birch hangers dripping with orchids and suspended glass globes were the perfect showpiece for this large space.
