10 Amazing Ways to Display Flowers

I am in the process of helping to plan a bridal shower for my daughter-in-law to be.  The lovely young lady who is hosting this event and I are planning on a French Garden Party theme.  Unfortunately they live in New York City where there really isn’t a French garden for us to party in, and it is August and could be 100 degrees or raining, so, we will have it in a delightful little bakery cafe.  We have to give the feeling of a French garden, so flowers will certainly be involved.  Off I headed across the internet to gather some unique ideas, and boy, did I find some unique ideas.  I found some amazing ways to display flowers and wanted to share them with you.

1.  Hanging Rose Arrangement

This is an incredible use of roses, this huge arrangement suspended above a table with all the single blooms hanging down from ribbons.  The arrangement tucked into the corner of the gilt picture frame even give a bit of a Marie Antoinette feel.  As beautiful as this is, I don’t think we will be doing this in the cafe.

2.  A simple sprig

From such a colorful and abundant display, I found this simple jar with just a sprig of baby’s breath to be just as lovely in its own way.

3.  Cage it

I happen to have a collection of pretty birdcages and think this is a lovely way to soften them by filling them with delicate blooms.

4.  Make a garland

How lovely this garland of flat eucalyptus, rosebuds and sedum is.  A garland such as this would be lovely, down the center of a table or draped on a railing.

5.  Float them

Do you have a pool, pond or fountain at the location you are using for an event?  Float some blossoms on it for a lovely look.

6.  Put them on a cake

Flowers on a cake are not just for wedding cakes, look at this beautiful chocolate cake and how the pink roses on it make it look so much more special.

7.  Make them into a poodle!

I know, who really needs a floral dog?  I just was really impressed with this sculpture, so I wanted to include it!

8.  Cloche them

Delicate little flowers tucked into a teacup and then put protectively under a crystal cloche make them seem more beautiful, like precious jewels that should not be touched.

9.  Stack them

Similar to tucking them under a crystal cloche, these glass spheres where each filled with lovely blooms and then stacked one on top of another.  If you don’t have floral arranging skills, this is a lovely way to create a centerpiece.

10.  Make them into a ball

I love spheres of flowers like these.  They are simple to make and so impressive even if they are just rested on a table like this.

Whatever the occasion or event, flowers make it seem much more special.  I know I will be continuing to search for the perfect way to use flowers at the upcoming bridal shower.

  1. I love flowers on top of a cake and those hanging roses are amazing, but that would be a lot of work and as you said not very practical. I think the spheres and the simple sprig of baby’s breath are my favorites! Thanks for sharing such great ideas!
