Great balls of flowers

Great balls of flowers

Last month we hung flower balls for a wedding down at the Atlantic Group, Docklands. After many consultations with the rigging company at the venue and the staging staff, we created a strategy for secure hanging. Because these flower balls are 30cm in diameter before decoration and once wet weigh in at around 18kg each (!!!), they had to be secured in a steel cage with a steel hook so that they could be suspended from the truss without risk of falling on someone. And then they were ready for decorating.
