Daffodil Table Scape at Celtic Manor Resort
Flowers have the incredible power to transform any space into a fragrant paradise, and at Ohana Designs, we believe in the art of creating unforgettable experiences through floral design. Recently, we had the honor of contributing our expertise to a celebration dinner at the prestigious Celtic Manor Resort, hosted in the Members Lounge at their Twenty-Ten Golf Course. The occasion was a tribute to local Welsh food suppliers, and we were tasked with weaving the vibrant hues of daffodils into an exquisite table scape that would complement the spirit of the event.

Welsh Elegance and Local Pride:
Welsh culture is rich in tradition, and our goal was to infuse the celebration with the essence of local pride. Daffodils, the national flower of Wales, were the obvious choice. These golden blooms not only symbolize rebirth and new beginnings but also carry a profound sense of Welsh identity. As guests gathered in the Members Lounge, they were greeted by a table adorned with an abundance of daffodils, setting the stage for an evening that would honor both local suppliers and the beauty of the Welsh landscape.
The Art of Floral Arrangement:
Creating a captivating table scape requires a delicate balance of color, form, and texture. To achieve this, we carefully curated a mix of daffodil varieties, each contributing its unique charm to the arrangement. The classic yellow daffodils added a touch of warmth, while the white and orange varieties provided a dynamic contrast. We interspersed the blooms with lush greenery, evoking the rolling hills of the Welsh countryside.
The Table Setting:
The venue, located within the Celtic Manor Resort’s 2010 Golf Club, offered a sophisticated backdrop for our floral masterpiece. We opted for a combination of long rectangular tables, allowing the floral arrangement to cascade gracefully down the center. To complement the daffodils, we chose crisp white table linens and gold-accented dinnerware, adding an air of refinement to the setting.
Local Suppliers’ Influence:
To further highlight the celebration’s theme, we incorporated elements inspired by the local Welsh food suppliers. Miniature baskets filled with artisanal cheeses and freshly baked bread were nestled among the daffodils, creating a visual feast that mirrored the culinary delights awaiting the guests. Each place setting featured a personalized menu, showcasing the names of the local suppliers whose contributions were being honored that evening.
As the sun set over the golf course, the Members Lounge at the 2010 Golf Club was bathed in a warm, golden glow. The daffodils, illuminated by candlelight, created a mesmerizing display that captured the attention of everyone in attendance. The fragrance of the flowers mingled with the tantalizing scents of the local dishes, creating an atmosphere that was both elegant and inviting.
At Ohana Designs, we take pride in our ability to turn moments into memories through the language of flowers. The celebration dinner at Celtic Manor Resort was a testament to the power of floral design in enhancing special occasions. The daffodil table scape not only paid homage to the beauty of Welsh culture but also served as a fitting tribute to the local food suppliers who play a vital role in shaping the culinary landscape of the region. As we continue to embark on floral adventures, we look forward to creating more enchanting experiences that celebrate the intersection of nature, culture, and community.
