Make a Statement

If you want your Spring Racing Carnival party to be unforgettable, start by making a bold statement that will stop your guests in their tracks. Impress with a bold, larger-than-life feature centrepiece such as our antique horse installation which is available to hire for your spring racing carnival party. Adorned with a floral saddle bursting with masses of multicoloured spring blooms, this beauty brings the wow-factor and will be the focal point of your event. Whether you’re hosting a cocktail party or are in need of some memorable styling for your workplace spring carnival event, a bold installation such as this will make a wonderful photo opportunity for your guests.

Spring Garden Party

An abundance of pretty spring blooms, styled loose and naturally as if they have been plucked from the garden is the embodiment of floral styling for a springtime soiree. Whether you’re hosting a cocktail party or a seated lunch, choose full and blousy blooms such as peonies, roses and hydrangea combined with typically spring varieties such as deliciously scented sweet pea, snowball vibernum, and delicate lilac. Achieve this organic, unstructured style by finishing your arrangements with loose and lovely cascading botanicals including tendrils of jasmine, trailing andromeda, peppercorn berries and textural amaranthus. This theme works as well with pastel hues as it does with vibrant mixed colour, ensuring a garden party ambience that delights the senses. 

An Infusion of Colour

Melbourne Cup Carnival is synonymous with fun and excitement, and what better to convey this theme than with a kaleidoscope of vibrant colour. Select bold, large-headed blooms such as reflexed roses, anthuriums, and disbuds finished with luxe cascading phalaenopsis orchid stems. Opt for coloured glass or glitzy gold vessels to further infuse a sense of festivity to the occasion. Why stop there? Inject vibrant colour into table linen, crockery and glassware, and event stationery, and be sure to top your race day outfit with a stunning floral headpiece of brilliant hues. With flowers bursting in a riot of colour, your spring racing carnival event is sure to exude energy and excitement!

Whether you opt for a bold statement floral piece, a garden-inspired setting, or a burst of vibrant colour, your flowers have the power to transform your Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival party into an unforgettable experience.
