3 Ways to Brighten up Your Events with Mini Orchids
May 19, 2015
Just like their full-sized counterparts, mini orchids are easy to care for and add a bit of style to their surroundings. These mini blooms come in their own festive ceramic pot and are usually no more than 12 inches tall. Here are a few fun ways you can use mini orchids.
Wedding Reception Decor
Brighten up your reception tables by using mini orchids as centerpieces. Personalize the pots to the color of your choice and place a few minis on each table. Accent them with other decorative items like table confetti or candles, or just let the blooms’ beauty stand on their own. For pot personalizing instructions and additional ideas, check out this handy guide.
You could also incorporate several mini orchids into an arrangement to create a more dramatic look for your centerpieces. Just select the decorative container of your choice, some floral foam and moss and add your orchids. It’s that easy. Add a few extra touches like decorative twigs or complementary plants for a stunning arrangement.
When creating your arrangement, be sure to keep each orchid in its clear plastic grower pot. This makes for easy rearranging if you decide to experiment with a few different looks and ensures the plants aren’t overcrowded. Take a look at this post for some tips on incorporating more than one orchid into a pot and other arrangement ideas.
If you’re keeping your mini orchids in the pot they came in, you have the option of letting your guests take them home as favors. Mini orchids make ideal wedding favors thanks to their beauty, ease of care and small size. Plus, you’re introducing your guests to the fascinating and fun hobby of orchid growing.
Baby Shower Prizes or Decor
Who wouldn’t love to take home a beautiful mini orchid as a baby shower prize? Baby showers are often filled with games, and the prizes for winners are usually home products like soap or washcloths. Give your guests something they’d be excited to take home (and compete for), like a mini orchid.
These tiny blooms easily add a touch of elegance to any baby shower. Use the pointers above to personalize each plant’s pot to the colors of your choice or create a beautiful mini orchid arrangement.
A Flower Arranging Party
Now that warmer weather has finally arrived, why not celebrate by hosting a flower arranging party?
Here’s what you’ll need:
Complementary plants like ivy, succulents, decorative twigs or raffia
Filler like moss or stones
Ribbon, twine or string if you choose to make bouquets
Additional flowers like tulips or roses
Then, invite your friends over to create their own stunning arrangements.
