Mood Board: Candlelit Florals for Cocktail Hour

Mood Board-Cocktail-Hour-Floral-Decor



Let this mood board inspire you next time you set your table to entertain. Flowers in candlelight truly create a sense of magic and romance that makes any evening more beautiful and memorable. We love to create groupings of small floral arrangements in glass vases of varying heights. Setting the vases and candle holders on a glass or mirrored surface adds extra glimmer. Small mirrored disks or highly polished metal trays are the way to get this effect at home.

Wedding cocktail hours should feel warm and romantic. Old friends catch up as new flirtations start up! Guests experiences a moment of shared emotion before celebration and dancing. One bride-to-be asked us to create a glowing space for her guests to enjoy cocktail hour, with candles and flowers on every surface. Instead of the classic red roses in the inspiration image, we presented her with a softer, summer color palette. Big, voluptuous coral peonies, palest blush ranunculus, peach Juliet garden roses and peach parrot tulips, with their unusual, ruffled petals, will all look stunning, set aglow in candle light.
