The Ultimate Guide to Decorating with Mini Orchids
September 3, 2015
Thanks to their vibrant colors, beauty and ease of care, orchids are often the flower of choice for decorators. These versatile blooms have many decorating uses and can be used to brighten up parties, homes, businesses and more.
Mini orchids — the smaller version of the Phal — are also an attractive choice for decorating. And they’re just as easy (maybe even easier) to care for than their full-sized counterparts.
Here are a few ideas for using mini orchids for decor inside and outside the home.
Using Mini Orchids in Your Home
Thanks to their tinier size, these little Phals easily add a pop of color to any room. You can even group a few of them together to really make a statement.
If you’d rather use a single mini orchid, consider placing it on a table or other surface to add instant flair. You could paint its decorative pot with a color or design that complements your existing decor. For a unique look, show off your orchids by replanting them in tiny canning jars.
For larger areas like a dining or coffee table or fireplace mantel, group several mini orchids in a decorative container to create a striking conversation piece.
Using Mini Orchids for Corporate Events
Flowers might not come immediately to mind when it comes to corporate events, usually held in harshly lit, large conference rooms — just the space that could use some color and elegance. Being around plants can help those attending an event improve their concentration — maybe even soothe their nerves.
If you’re planning a corporate event, consider including mini orchids. Here are two ways to incorporate them:
If your event has assigned seating, affix seating information to a mini orchid for a decorative place card.
Use mini orchids as favors for guests, who can then take their mini orchid back to the office to brighten up their desks.
Using Mini Orchids for Parties
Think outside the streamer for your next party and include mini orchids among the decorations. Use the bright blooms to add a touch of elegance to a Sweet 16 party, a bridal shower or a baby shower. You could also use the orchids as favors to wow shower guests who are likely used to receiving soaps or candy.
If you’re planning a party for a child, you could use mini orchids as a craft activity. Let each child paint or design his or her pot that the orchid comes in.
