Gorgeous Florals for Special Occassions

pin it

Flowers make me happy. Whether I am gardening, arranging flowers for a dinner party or just walking through an outdoor market, I love looking at beautiful blooms!

So when its time to host a celebration, I believe special occasions call for special flowers. Here’s a round up of gorgeous florals to give you inspiration for your next festive occasion.

Stunning Floral Arrangements

Once you see these pictures, you can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon the website Tulipina, showcasing Kiana Underwood’s gorgeous florals. Kiana is an extremely talented floral designer. I could spend hours on her site looking at her beautiful work. If you live in San Francisco, you can visit her studio. Regardless of where you live, if you have an interest in learning how to design floral arrangements, she offers online courses through her workshops.  Here are some of her stunning creations.

Boxed Flowers

While perusing the internet, I enjoy finding unique floral displays. These boxed flowers are clever creations and easy to recreate. They give me inspiration for some low vases, I have, which I like for centerpieces because you can see over them.  See my former post Tablescape Inspiration.

Floral Cakes

These floral cakes are so creative and ideal for a celebration such as a milestone birthday or bridal shower. They would be a festive addition to a buffet or gift table.

Floral Topiaries

These floral topiaries from Bride’s Magazine are gorgeous. In my opinion the tall ones would have to be placed at a buffet table, not at the dining table.

You can make a statement at party with floral pomanders as shown here at Brides Magazine.

      Glad you liked them Brenda! I love the boxed floral arrangements for low centerpieces – you can easily see over them for conversation with other dinner guests!
