It’s exciting that live and in-person events are being planned again! Check out these four trends in plant décor to consider for your next live event.
1. Wide leaf “house style” plants
Just as 1970s fashion is making its way back to retails stores, plants from that era are coming back as well and they’re popping up in many of the live events taking place. These wide-leaf, house style plants require little maintenance and have proven resilient. They also bring texture, color, and life to any space!
Plants we have seen with the most requests?: monstera, fiddle leaf figs, birds of paradise, and rubber trees.
2. Plants and hedging
Plants and hedging create organic screening within your space. This type of screening is more important than ever because it’s a decorative way to provide social distancing. Hedges can be both real and artificial and can be designed in many different custom heights and widths.
You can also arrange various live trees such as ficus to create walkways within a large space to create flow and/or to keep people apart.
3. Plant clusters and vignettes
Plant clusters and vignettes are very popular right now. Rightfully so as they create a much larger impact than a standalone plant. Professionals can combine a number of different plants such as one tall bird of paradise, two short palm trees, and smaller ground cover plants like ferns.
The plant clusters and vignettes will benefit your event in the following ways:
- Combining these different plants adds variety and creates depth.
- They’ll provide additional warmth in conference spaces.
- If you use them as stand-alone pieces, they’ll be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
- Perfect for framing and showcasing signage, products or even AV.
4. Decorative Containers
An interesting, new trend seen at events has been the emphasis on beautiful decorative containers. Adding “high style” and “modern” decorative containers and planter boxes can give even the most simple of plants a very sophisticated and dressed up look. 800 PLANT IT has an ever growing catalog in all major cities and custom options can always be brought in.
