Hanging Floral Box



Add flowers from above using a hanging floral box. For this project I built a wood box with a cleat system to hold peg board for the florist to insert flowers and greenery which then hung above guests over the bar area. This hanging floral decor brings a natural element against the architectural lines of the space. How about over a long reception table? Or over the ceremony to create an intimate, colorful and organic feel? So many creative uses!
