A couple weeks ago we discussed winter décor, and one of the biggest trends we highlighted was the use of greenery throughout your space. Today we’re going to elaborate on that idea and include a few more options to consider if you want to incorporate greenery into your special day. Not only can you work greenery into the general décor, but you can also work your green thumb into drink ideas and apparel.
Eucalyptus. First of all, let’s look at the different types of greenery that are our favorite right now. We are in love with eucalyptus everything. It smells like heaven and looks like a dream when added to pretty much any floral arrangement; bouquets, garland, centerpieces and anything else you want to throw some extra green into!
Ferns. Much like eucalyptus, ferns are easy to add to bouquets, garlands, floral crowns and pretty much anything else you need to add a splash of green. Ferns aren’t as pungent as eucalyptus, so if you’re looking for the greenery without any scent, this may be the best choice for you.
Wreaths. Wreaths aren’t only for holidays; you can utilize this circular, floral arrangement in any unique manner to add a little extra greenery to your venue décor. Nix the holly and consider adding your favorite flowers, or your wedding flowers of choice, then hang them generously throughout your space. You will be surprised with the fresh and gorgeous ambiance they create.
Garland. We just can’t over how much beauty garland can add to any space. The best thing about garland is that it’s versatile and can be used universally. For example, you can simply drape garland around your bar to add that little bit of green without going overboard. Garland is uncomplicated and a stunning asset to a space.
Arbors. One of the best backdrops to any ceremony is a unique arbor created for you and yours framing you both as you express your vows to one another. An arbor doesn’t have to be in any particular style either. In the spirit of highlighting greenery today, a general base of greenery of your choosing infused with the flowers you love the most will be a perfect addition to your ceremony décor. Some of the most beautiful arbors are already climbing with roses or honeysuckle, combining gorgeous greenery with pleasant aromas and color.
Beverages. Some of the most refreshing drinks, virgin or otherwise, are herb infused. If you’re looking to carry on with the earthy feel throughout the entirety of your event, think about including beverages at your bar created with herb infused alcohol, such as lavender vodka or sage whiskey. Or, a mocktail like basil lemonade is always light and refreshing!
Floral crowns. Here at Elegant Affairs, we LOVE the use of floral crowns for bridesmaids, flower girls and even the bride herself! There are so many floral options when creating a floral crown, you have the freedom to make the most unique crown to express your very own style while continuing with the natural theme.
We love the use of greenery in any event, and with so many options, it’s sure to be incorporated in a unique and stunning way every time! Fresh, earthy and natural, adding that hint of green can make your day truly magical.
