Afternoon lovelies! Today’s a two-post kinda day, don’t we just love those!  This afternoon Jodie from Boutique Blooms, amazing floral designer & stylist shares some of her top DIY & styling tips for recreating the look shared in this morning’s colourful cocktail & macaron shoot.

  • Pick a key ingredient from your favourite cocktail and incorporate that into your party décor
  • Any fruit with a hard skin or peel looks fabulous with a layer of metallic spray paint, purchased from your local DIY store. Make sure you have covered a large open space (preferably on a dry day!) with newspapers as protection, and spray from the recommended distance with a steady even hand. Allow to dry completely before displaying in bowls in your bar area
  • Attach fruit or paper umbrellas onto florist wires and use them as a finishing touch in any flower arrangements
  • Cocktail glasses and shakers make great vases for flowers; fill a martini glass with flowers & fruit segments and pop in a paper umbrella or flag and you have a great decoration for your drinks tray
  • Fill a tall vase with fruit (lemons or limes work well) and place your flower arrangement in the top for a striking cocktail-inspired floral display.

Don’t forget it’s all about supporting a great cause! Read all about #MacaronsForMacmillan and see more of this stunning shoot here.

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
