A memorable and enriching meeting experience extends well beyond the conference room. Whether you are hosting an event in house or booking a room, florals set the tone by adding nuisances of color and scent. An aptly chosen arrangement can lighten any mood, add a focal point, or enhance the professional and creative atmosphere. For meetings with clients, florals add a personalized element that increases comfort and sends the message that details are important. Consider the benefits for your team. For internal meetings, a floral arrangement makes a conference table feel more welcoming and puts employees at ease. Here are a few tips for choosing the right meeting flowers for your next important business event.
Choosing the Right Arrangement
The size and height of your meeting flower arrangements depend on their uses, so be sure to keep your meeting type and gathering space in mind when making your choice. If your meeting is scheduled for a large conference room and the flowers will surround a podium, avoid choosing small, low arrangements with one or two sprigs that will get lost in the expanse of the room. If your meeting will take place around a conference table and the seats will be filled with important guests, avoid choosing tall, full arrangements that block the view. Bear in mind that while scents can make you happy or promote social interaction, they can also overpower. Your floral designer will have plenty of insight into the varieties that work perfectly for your meeting type.
Colors and Styles for Meeting Flowers
Choosing proper colors and styles for your meeting flower arrangements matters. Be sure to discuss meeting details with your florist. Hues and flower types determine the ambiance of the room. At an event or gathering that has a specific purpose or goal, decor can help stimulate creativity and fresh ideas. This quick guide will help jumpstart the process of choosing appropriate meeting flowers and colors.
Professional meeting flowers
For meetings with clients or C-suite executives, choose muted colors like pastels, or mostly white arrangements flowers with small pops of darker colors like plum or navy blue. Deep color accents and modern displays offer a sleek elegance that will help generate professional discussion.
Luncheon meeting flowers
If your meeting features a luncheon spread, choose simple colors like pale orange or blue mixed with whites and plenty of greenery to enhance the food display (but will not take attention away from it).
Creative meeting flowers
For creative meetings and strategy sessions, choose meeting flowers that combine elements of light and dark. The stark contrast in colors will spark creativity among meeting participants, generate an air of warmth and excitement, and help get new ideas flowing.
Celebration meeting flowers
If your company is celebrating, bright colors like oranges and yellows, and large blooms like sunflowers and lilies, will help create a joyful, festive mood. Large arrangements featuring bright pops of color will fit perfectly with any celebratory event.
