Accent Decor: Inspiration with Ian Prosser and Zoë Gallina

There are many times when a company recruits outside talent to highlight some of their products. With our excitement of having Ian and Zoë on The Flower Podcast this week, we reached out to Accent Decor to showcase inspirational images created by them. This gives us many opportunities!! First to highlight their work and also to highlight some amazing products by our lead sponsor for this season, Accent Decor.

Having been in the floral business for many years, I understand the need for inspiration. Either taking vessels you already have or seeing new products for you to use can be important when booking weddings and meeting with clients. It’s far too easy to let our work become ordinary. I hope you enjoy this post and can take a quiet moment and breathe in the inspiration.


Nature provides us with what seems like an endless number of mediums to express our visions and dreams. I love the use of tillandisas, fruit, plants, and foliage mixed with the obvious cut flowers for this vignette. Accent Decor brings in amazing talents to create these stunning visuals to showcase the possibilities for creating memorable events or weddings for your clients. Utilizing plants can be more than environmentally friendly, it can also give you inventory to repurpose or regift to your client. The flowers and plants above have been placed in the Laurent Urn. Using the natural vibrant color of fruit like cantaloupe and persimmons to carry the color from the flower designs flowing down the table and the place setting can create more impact. The candles have been placed in the Glass Lanterns with gold accents to connect with the gold in the urns. Creating more intimate light, the Sassi Votives have blended perfectly with the golds, peaches, and taupes of the tablescape.


There is a current trend that I am absolutely thrilled to see. Being in the wholesale end of florals, I am used to having multiple products in inventory but when you see new trends bringing somewhat passed over inventory to life you can’t help but be energized! I am drawn to the pampers grass. This time of year dried product is the most available. It’s not as big and fluffy as fresh, but you can reuse it if you handle it carefully and when mixed with greenery the impact created can be spectacular. This design almost mimics the popular suspended floral design by using the Clarinet Vase without the challenges of hanging florals from the ceiling. I also love the design of this vessel and its reversal capability to add variety and interest on the same table.


Farm tables may come and go with popularity, but I love all the natural elements incorporated into this tablescape The clean lines from the hanging amaranths effortlessly brings your eyes down past the Clarinet Vase to this inviting gathering of rustic charm. Including the Truce Candleholder and the Selenite Table Number Accent Decor reinforces this natural theme making the connection with the Earth. Also, in the background there is the use of the candleholders and sculptures from the Atlantis Collection made from selenite. Once again, fruit is being used to connect the bright green color of the centerpieces with the simple place setting design. Each setting creates a personal invite with the use of a Tea Rose Budvase and a delicate touch of color.


Accent Decor not only creates vessels, but also brings decorative natural pieces into their collections. The bright gold Adorn Vase looks clean and is truly a bold statement when mixed with any florals like the mix of garden roses, dahlias, freesias, hydrangea, and callas. The bold florals and lines of the eucalyptus compliment the colors of these natural Agate Slices. These create a wonderful textural addition to any event. Whether for decorative purposes or like used above to personalize a setting, incorporating natural pieces with your designs is always pleasing.


The challenge of a table centerpiece can be its height or how much it may interfere with the personal space of each guest. I appreciate the scale, fullness, color, and ambience that Ian and Zoë brought to this table. The delicate peaches and creams of the garden roses and the softness of the dahlias blend with the natural color of the chairs and the votives perfectly. Furthermore, the silver of the brunia and dusty miller compliment the simple yet elegant place setting. The votives used in the settings are Accent Decor’s Spirit Votive. Made of glass, this dramatic votive creates a delicate ambience and sets the mood of an intimate gathering. Last but not least, the Stellar Name Card Holder adds a hint of sparkle, a natural element, and overall elegance to the tablescape.


Oh my goodness! When I first saw this image, my thoughts were of cherished memories of my grandmother. I believe many of you know what I am talking about. The family cake plate admired as the vessel housing Grandma’s delectable of the day, and the fresh pick of morning flowers from the garden were essential for a day at Grandma’s.

I am loving the appeal of this table. Simple yet elegant. Classic yet Current. The beautiful color of the Zelana Cake Plates can be used for anything from the obvious decorative cake plate to perfect pedestals for floral masterpieces. Designed to compliment any color palette, I am enamored with the amazing vibrant colors of the anemones, dahlias, and roses and they pop against the timeless color of the cake plate. The table also includes textured vases from Accent Decor’s Palm Collection available in multiple sizes. The neutral color of this stoneware vessel gives it flexibility in how it is utilized in one’s overall design. Truly a modern vibe to a classic table for an overall timeless experience.
