Just like Keeping Up With The Kardashians is a ‘thing’, so too, is keeping up to date with the latest floral trends. When we discovered hoops and pampas grass we were irrevocably and totally in love! This look is not just trendy but symbolizes so much more than just a ‘hoop’.
A floral hoop is round, just like a wedding ring which in turn represents eternity – a promise you make to the one you love that you will always be together and be there for one another. This is just one of the many reasons why we feel so connected to floral hoops. Over time we’ve designed and created many different types of floral hoops. These include flower girl hoops, bridesmaid bouquet hoops, and floating hoops that are suspended from the ceiling or wooden beams.
The Sky is the Limit
We have a selection of hoops to choose from such as everlasting preserved floral hoops, artificial floral hoops, and of course, the real thing (fresh flowers!). Just imagine a floating hoop with Blush Pink and Beige Pampas Grass, White-bleached Ruscus, and White Orchids.
The sky is truly the limit when it comes to these hoop designs. They are a budget-friendly alternative to table floral decor as you won’t need as many hoops as you might need flowers for your table decor. A few floating hoops and a small statement arrangement or single flower stems in small vases can create a whimsical look.
When we started Blume in lockdown, we thought of the bridal couples who are waiting to enjoy their weddings. Many couples had to postpone their weddings or opt for an elopement package. Some bridal couples even paid deposits that were non-refundable and had to think of alternative decor options as their budgets were limited. This is where we stepped in to provide a luxury wedding look for the bridal couples who have a smaller floral budget. We offer a professional service and we are always ready to answer any questions our bridal couples might have.
Can you ‘DIY’ hoops?
Sure you can! But here’s a head’s-up. It takes hours to make these stunning hoops, by a professional team who has lots of experience in making them. We would not recommend that you make your wedding or special event hoops yourself. Designing these hoops is much more than just sticking flowers on a hula hoop. Our hoops are handcrafted, satin wrapped, perfectly sprayed, and packaged. For those bridal couples looking for a classy thicker hoop with fairy lights, crystal strings, glass bubbles, and tea light candles – we’ve got you covered! We also have stunning thin hoops available in gold, silver, rose gold, bronze, white and black.
How can I order?
You can rent any of our hoops and collect them from us in Melkbosstrand, or we can deliver them to you at an extra cost. We also courier our hoops nationwide as well as to Namibia, and Swaziland. All our hoop rentals are subject to you paying a refundable deposit fee. At Blume, we also specialize in tablescapes and floral arrangements. You can book our hoops or our floral team here:
