Whether you are planning a corporate or wedding event, flower arrangements are so versatile, and a total must have in creating those unforgettable entrance moments.  Simple, elegant or over the top, whatever the style your going for, working with a florist is key to creating that perfect piece(s) for your event. We caught up with Sue Dodd from The Watering Can to discuss trends, inspiration and how being open to ideas is key when working with your floral designer.

LS) What is currently trending right now in wedding and/or corporate events?

SO) What inspires you to keep things new and fresh?

SD) We passionately believe that flowers bring joy and happiness to any event. Our designers have their masters in European design and we continue to send them around the world for inspiration.  Every designer has a niche and passion and we nurture that passion to allow full creativity.

LS) What is one thing a client should know when working with a florist?

SD) Be open and allow the designers some creative freedom- it’s all in the details.

LS) What was your most memorable event?

SD) Our most memorable event was honouring a bride and groom in hospice. We were able to bring joy and beauty at such a difficult time. We received a last minute call from hospice and every team member stopped in their tracks to be a part of this day. This memory, though simple, is still very dear to our hearts.

LS) What are your favourite pieces to work with at an event?

SD) Anything that allows us to showcase our creativity! Whether it be arbour installations, bridal bouquets or gala arrangements, we love it all!
