Trend Report: Floral Hoops
We love a new trend here at Ashfield House and have noticed a definite rise in the popularity of floral hoops.
What are floral hoops?
Well in this case, it’s a metal circle featuring flowers and greenery, affixed using wire. Larger hoops can feature tea lights in glass holders for a really delicate and intricate feel to your table decorations. The hoops can also be carried as bouquets or posies.
At Ashfield House, we have purposely designed our award winning wedding venue to be your blank canvas. Stylish and with enough detail for the most minimal of weddings. Also not too “in your face” so that you have the option to add your own additional personalised styling.
One thing that’s popular here are our cornices and hooks, placed at points around the venue. These allow you to add your own floral or decorative details.

How can I use flower hoops at my wedding?
The floral hoops work well at Ashfield House as they can be placed atop cornices, on different pieces of furniture like the hallway tables or hung up. We love this floral hoop table plan at Hannah and Sam West’s recent Ashfield House wedding.
Floral hoops add depth to your wedding decor. A little like you’d place lamps in your home, even though you have ceiling lights. These cool floral hoops are different and eye catching, adding in a little circular depth and texture to your wedding venue dressing.
We have loved seeing the floral hoops as table decorations at wedding breakfasts and then used on our ‘Wall of Stuff’ for the evening reception.

Of course the biggest bonus for flower hoops is as a bouquet! It’s super genius really. Rather than a posy, which always requires a hand, you could in theory place the floral hoop over your arms, like a handbag. Hands free for drinks, selfies, applying lippy and giving all important hugs and high fives to your friends and family.
We asked our good friend and florist extraordinaire, Sarah Crookston from The Rose Boutique in Wigan for her verdict. Sarah said;
“It’s ALL about floral hoops this season! I’ve had so many requests for them. They started taking off as bridesmaid flowers for younger bridesmaids but soon the grown ups were realising the versatility of floral hoops.
“The shape helps to add a consistent theme across the wedding posies, table centre pieces and additional decorative details. Floral hoops work with a variety of flowers and foliage and do look particularly impressive on columns in the Ceremony Room.”
We at Ashfield House think they’re great, because they’re a definitely different new trend to jump on.
