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.

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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
