5 Tips for Selecting a Florist

Five Things To Do Before Selecting A Florist Not all flower arrangements are created equal!  Here at A Legendary Event, we know our award-winning florists play an extremely important role in many of our clients events.   For your special occasion, your decor should be nothing short of show-stopping, so use these 5 insider tips to help bring your floral dreams to life. 1. Figure out your vision Maybe a decadent red flower wall (pictured) is a little too racy for your party, but there is unlimited inspiration to be found both online and in person, so go out and find it.  Decide which flowers are most important to you, and what color scheme you think you want to work with. 2. Do your research Our Floral Director Jeanna Graham has a long and impressive body of work to show our clients.  Seeing examples of a florist’s previous work is essential as it allows you to see if their style suits yours. 3. Have a chat Let the florist know your ideas, can they contribute anything to your vision, or do they want to change your original plans? The florist should be someone who supports your concepts, and brings them to life in an extraordinary way. 4. Prepare a budget Find someone who understands your budget and is excited about making the most out of every penny.  A great florist knows the tricks to extend your finances as far as possible, so make sure you always have your numbers in mind. 5. Go with your gut When you’re feeling unsure, go with your first instinct and hire the person you feel most connected with.  This is somebody who will be handling a major part of your special event, so they need to be someone you can trust.  

Celebrate Summer with Seasonal Citrus!

At A Legendary Event, our award-wining floral team is busy designing magnificent centerpieces. For color and pizzazz, we love including lemons and limes for a less predictable touch. With summer starting to sizzle, now is the time to let some sun into your celebration and brighten your home with brilliant hues of yellow and orange. Legendary Floral Director Jeanna Graham enjoys adding citrus to A Legendary Event’s table- scapes. Guests asked ‘How did you think of that?’ That’s the “Wow” factor we aim for at Legendary which is colorful, creative, and unexpected.” One of the biggest trends in floral arrangements this year is also unconventional centerpieces and using fruit to catch guests by surprise. These arrangements add vibrant colors that dazzle the eyes and citrus fruits provide a fresh aroma that brings the sunshine inside. To jazz up tables and place settings, slice freshly picked lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits, or bergamots. Combine different fruits for a fresh and clean arrangement. Try sliding lemon slices into a clear vase, and then fill it with flowers and ice water for a “Legendary” look. Simple and sophisticated, this is a solar flare that will keep your company coming back for more.
