Fresh flowers and custom plantings are proven to provide the image of success for your business. While your venue doesn’t need to mimic a botanical garden, restaurant plants and flowers can enhance your interior design and set the tone for the ambiance. Restaurant interior design is one of the main factors that guests notice when deciding on a place to dine at. Flowers and plants can be a great component for the décor and color scheme of the venue. Floral displays at a dining scene freshens the design, making the place cozy and romantic for patrons.
If you think back to the last time you dined out, does the restaurant flower arrangements at the place you ate at come to mind? While botanical compositions may not always register on everyone’s radar, one thing is most certain though; a dedicated and talented floral designer spends every waking moment trying to amass those ravishing components to make your establishment stand out. Decorating your restaurant’s interior with nature’s finery can (subconsciously) have an impact on your customers dining experience in many ways. For starters, they make a bold statement that you have the resources to enjoy simple luxuries to your diners thus leaving them with a lasting impression of your business. Secondly, restaurant flowers breathe a new life into your dining area. Florists use flowers and plants to create focus points for guests waiting to order their meals. This is the primary reason why restaurant flower arrangements should be included in your layout design plan.
Including flowers in your restaurant arrangements can provide many benefits – whether they are plant rotations or weekly flower delivery services. Whether cost savings or using high premium flowers for your restaurant décor, finding a reliable florist can help you determine which flowers tailor to your business needs as he/she understands that they are the essential ingredient in creating an atmosphere and visual flair that you want your business to be reputable for. But foremost, reviewing your tables capacity can help you decide on the flowers you want to feature on your restaurant tables.
From the business vantage point, hoteliers and restaurateurs have understood the importance of their environment and how the right floral arrangements can improve customer experience and overall increase revenue. If you choose that avenue, there is a lot to consider from the types flowers, quality, whether they meet your individual requirements to price and other expenses that are tact such as accessories (vases) and delivery services.
If you already found a niche that works best with your decor, the right floral provisions can further express your restaurant color scheme. If you are looking to give your décor a seasonal look and a splash of color to the interior of your space, a florist can help guide you. Traditionally, many restaurants have stuck to green and white flowers as those colors tend to blend in with almost any design. But as floral design is increasingly being seen as a work of art, many themed venues are exploring different color palates. For instance, if you are trying to create a romantic mood for guests on a date night, red roses define that mood that vibe the best. Though ordering fresh flowers on a weekly basis can be expensive as fresh flowers tend to deteriorate over a course of time. Artificial flowers and plants may be a cheaper and long lasting alternative that can especially be incorporated in your outdoor restaurant design ideas.
Smell is the most powerful sense. To quote Hamlet, “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”. In this instance, this is in reference to the putrid stench of decomposing flowers at your restaurant – even after they have been removed from the scene. Albeit color and quality, floral designers suggest that fragrance should be the least of your priorities in your restaurant flower arrangements. Therefore they advise against using heavily scented flowers for your venue. The reasons being are that guests might find the aroma to be too overpowering that can clash with the food served to them. Flowers with a sweet and pungent fragrance can turn foul in a matter of days. Stenches from rotting flowers are very difficult to disguise which can interfere with one’s appetite and overall ruin your customer’s dining experience. It’s also crucial to be mindful of guests with allergies. An outbreak of hives from an allergic reaction can also stink up ones mood which doesn’t bode well for customer service – another reason why restaurateurs opt to artificial flowers as they eliminate that predicament.
Just as you would do your best to upkeep your restaurant design, service, quality of food and furniture, plants and flowers require proper care. With that being said, you don’t have to break the bank to maintain the quality of the items you use, especially flowers. If you want to give your restaurant décor a fresh look without having to worry about overspending, succulents is an affordable solution. Also with very little maintenance required, the yellow-orange hues of ranunculus gracefully welcome in summertime into your venue. For a rustic and dainty look, lilacs placed with green foliage in a tin can or in an antique pitcher will give your venue a laid-back feel. Sunflowers can give your restaurant a sunny disposition and can go several days without fresh water. Citrus aroma has a calming effect on patrons. For a refreshing flower arrangement, all you need is a bouquet of drought-tolerant roses or cockscomb placed in a vase filled with limes and sugar water. Buying locally, however, is the best way to ensure the premium quality of your flowers as well as their longevity along with occasional watering, snipping, shade and sunlight when needed.
