Today, I bring you a very special Tropical Styled Inspiration! This inspiration is special because, One, It is near and dear to Violet’s heart, Two, We are bringing you a sneak peek of some new products coming soon to FiftyFlowers, and Three, We had some of these products in our office last week, so I have real pictures to go along with the inspiration!! So, let’s get started…
We are going to start with a Tropical Styled Aisle, then show you how you can re-use your aisle decor as centerpieces!
You will Need:
- 10-20 Tall (24-36″) Vases – One per table or one every 2-3 aisles. You can stagger them down the aisle every other chair or so.
- Tropical Greens – Banana, Aspidistra, Cordeline, etc. You will need about 3-6 per vase – simply gently curl them in a coil and place them in the vase, stacked vertically – don’t fill vase with water til after this step!
- To Fill Each Vase – 1-3 stems of Lobster Claws/Heliconia (shown, Coming soon!) or 1-3 King Protea or 1 of our Ginger Combo Packs (shown below, coming soon!)
- 6,000 – 12,000 Mixed Rose Petals for the aisle
Here are the examples we made in the office…
Now, let’s see how we can turn these aisle decorations into centerpieces…
A Little Back Story from Violet: “I LOVE tropicals – and I cannot wait to share these Lobster Claws (aka. Heliconia) with you all. They are a particular favorite of mine because they remind me of our family in Maui – I even did a painting of them!” 🙂
Use your tall aisle vases, with 1-3 stems of Lobster Claws/Heliconia, as the center focal piece.
In addition, for each table you will need:
- 2 stems Pin Cushion Protea – Yellow or Red/Orange
- 3 stems Anthurium
- 10 Craspedia Billy Balls
- Mixed Rose Petals
- 10-15 leaves of Croton (another amazing tropical that comes with red, orange, yellow and green on their speckled/striped leaves!)
- 3 Monstera leaves
To create this centerpiece, Violet used three smaller vases placed around the large vase, and used the Monstera leaves as ‘place-mats’ for each of the three smaller vases. She filled each vase with Croton leaves and either the Pin Cushion Protea, the Anthuriums, or the Craspedia Billy Balls. Finish by sprinkling mixed rose petals around the centerpiece to tie it all together!
What do you think? Do you see a Tropical Styled Wedding in your future?!
