Think about the events you’ve attended. What stands out in your memory? Most likely, you remember an interaction or two with the other guests and the setting.

If you’re catering a wedding or corporate event, it’s important to keep decor classy. Orchids as event decor make it easy to avoid cheap metallic-looking or plastic event table decorations. 

When using orchids as event table decor, you can use a single or variety of colors. For variety, you can also use different sized orchids in strategic locations.

Add a Festive Vibe to Cocktail Hour With Mini Orchids

Mini orchids prove that dynamite can come in small packages. With their brilliant pops of color, these plants pack a punch while taking up minimal space. 

A festive choice for cocktail table decor, these plants will give guests something to talk about, leaving less room for those awkward pauses in conversation with strangers. 

To create an upbeat, festive atmosphere, choose brightly-colored orchids, such as a stunning red orchid.

Try this: Create eye-catching centerpieces by placing mini orchids in ornate vases or glass containers. Mix and match different orchid colors to add depth and visual interest. Add LED lights or fairy string lights to the arrangement for a touch of whimsy during evening events.

Use Mini Orchids to Create Intimate Moments

Need ideas for a more intimate setting? These small, delicate blooms are great for wedding receptions, anniversary celebrations and other special moments. Instead of brightly-colored hues, use white or pink minis.

Try this: Combine the romantic ambiance of candlelight with the delicate charm of mini orchids. Place mini orchids around the base of candelabras or intertwine them with the candlesticks for a sophisticated, unique cocktail table decor.

A Sense of Grandeur: Transform Large Tables with Orchid Planters 

Orchid Planters command attention and add a regal touch to larger tables such as banquet setups or buffet stations. These planters not only fill the space with natural beauty but also provide a lavish focal point that complements other event decor. 

Try this: Instead of traditional table runners, opt for an orchid runner that spans the length of your banquet table. Line up orchid planters along the center, creating a captivating visual pathway that draws guests' eyes. If your tables are too narrow, use mini orchids instead.

You can have the best of both worlds by using mini orchids in planters to create a vertical orchid garden as a backdrop for your buffet or dessert table. Arrange mini orchids in tiers of planters, allowing the vibrant blooms to cascade down. Your guests will be lined up to have their photos taken next to it!

With some creativity, event table decor can set the right mood for a variety of catered events and special occasions. From breaking the ice at cocktail tables to setting a more intimate tone to creating a sense of opulence at grander tables, these enchanting blooms have the power to transform any event space into a visual masterpiece. 

Embrace the elegance of orchids to create an unforgettable gathering.
