Friday Funday – Small But Mighty

From weddings, to banquets, showers, parties and other engagements, there’s always something to celebrate, and from just a few to hundreds of guests, events come in all sizes.

Though, is bigger really better?

When it comes to flowers, many florists out there are happy to work with budgets of all sizes, as long as the budget fits with the purpose and the size of the event or intention of the design. In the era of COVID-19, many events and expectations for events have been scaled back, but at the same time, they have become more intimate and treasured.

We’ve loved seeing this at Albin Hagstrom & Son. Here’s a few examples as some of our favorites from the week of August 16. ?

Bridal showers are a time for friends and family of the bride-to-be to shower the future newlyweds with love and fellowship.

They also often include some stunning floral displays, such as these backdrops created by Nicole Tan of Hiraya Flowers in Tennessee. The bright Cocculus leaves help bring out the soft pink and fuschia hues of the fresh Roses and Carnations.

From the wedding shower to the wedding flowers, it’s not the size that matters, just the bond between two special individuals who plan to spend the rest of their lives together.

These beautiful, rustic poolside arrangements and bridal bouquet of flowers and filler greens, accented by Leatherleaf and Sword Fern, are perfect for an intimate poolside ceremony, artfully arranged by The Flowerman, a florist in Ohio.

No need for a special occasion to enjoy some floral beauty! Sometimes flowers just like these are perfect for a rainy day.

This arrangement, by Emily of Flowerama of Springfield in Missouri, brings the purple and peach of the Hydrangeas, Roses, Lily and Daisy with the greens of Leatherleaf and Baby Blue Eucalyptus for quite the rainbow of colors.

Simple, but fun. Sometimes that’s all you need to get the job done, whether it’s celebrating, decorating or brightening someone’s day.

Finishing up our Friday Funday, the Sunflowers may stand alone in this small-but-mighty arrangement, but that’s all it needs, paired with Variegated Pittosporum and Weeping Podocarpus for soft and frilly touches, by Tiger Lily Florist in South Carolina.


Small, but mighty, that’s the power of flowers. Check back next week for a few more of our favorites.
