Flower Rings - Taking your marquee decor to new heights

Updated: Jan 17

Picture this, you step into a pole and canvas marquee, and your gaze is immediately drawn upwards to a breathtaking explosion of flowers filling the vast overhead space. ‘How is this possible?’ you gasp in awe and wonderment! The answer lies in our fabulous flower rings.

In this article we're going to tell you just why flower rings are so fabulous, how they work and how you can plan to utilise them and elevate your pole and canvas marquee decor.

What are flower rings and how do they work in a pole and canvas marquee?

Here at Peacock and Bow, we offer 1.8 metre diameter tubular steel flower rings that can be suspended around the king poles of your marquee. Flower rings are a game-changer when it comes to adding that extra touch of elegance and beauty to your marquee decor.

So, how do they work? It's simple, yet brilliant. We lower the flower rings so that your talented florist can work their magic and create a spectacular display that will have your guests completely obsessed. A pulley system is then used to raise the flower rings, allowing them to hang gracefully overhead and fill the space with colour and fragrance.

Whether you're planning a wedding, a garden party, or any other special occasion, our flower rings will take your marquee decor to new heights. They add that "wow" factor that will have your guests talking for years to come.

How can I plan for my marquee flower ring installation?

Our main tip is to ensure all your suppliers are coordinated. If you choose to hire your pole and canvas marquee from Peacock and Bow, we will be able to liaise with your florist and confirm details such as where each flower ring will be situated, the pulley system, and weight loading.

When should the flower ring installation take place?

The installation needs to be planned so that it's not taking place at the same time as the tables are being laid, or your guests might think they’ve been given some edible flowers as an amuse-bouche. Try to give your florist some space and time to work their magic when there isn’t too much else going on in the marquee. This will make things go more smoothly for everyone.

Typically, the flower ring installation and other floral arrangements should be the first item on the schedule after the marquee has been put up, and the last thing before the marquee is taken down.

How will the flower rings be installed?

If you choose to go with Peacock and Bow, we will install a pulley system for your florist, who can then raise the flower ring up into position once they have finished their arrangement. If you choose another pole and canvas marquee hire company you will need to think about things like height and access. Ask the marquee hire company what they can do, as you may need to consider other options like an access platform or a scaffold tower.

What sort of flowers are best to decorate flower rings?

You'll want to choose flowers that are robust and can withstand the excitement of your event without wilting too easily. Blooms that require less watering will make life a lot easier!

The same goes for foliage. Your florist will have plenty of green fingered credentials, so let them guide you and make the most of their knowledge and expertise. If you choose a florist and a marquee hire company who are experienced with these types of installations and know the ins and outs of creating stunning floral displays in marquees, you can rest assured that everything will go smoothly.
