Lighting, flowers and arrangements help to set a mood and engage the senses. Inspire guests with tasteful tablescapes that provide a visual feast. Guests can pull up a chair, eat, socialize and linger with arrangements that add to the ambiance.
1. French Provincial for Upscale Rustic
A French Provincial tablescape can be used for relaxed wedding day inspiration. Linens with antique lace or applique grace the table. Set up an assortment of small bouquets with seasonable flowers. Symmetrically placed tall white candles provide elegant lighting.
2. Contemporary Yellow with a Modernist Slant
A bright sunny event calls for some yellow and white centerpieces. Get inspired from New York City floral designer Naomi deManana with lively textures in the same hue. Use white opaque vases, yellow ribbon and a combination of jonquils, tulips, ranunculus and sweet peas. These cheerful arrangements enliven the backdrop of a party.
3. Romantic with Eastern Flair
A gorgeous rose-hued wedding centerpiece, aka the Cherry Blossom Wedding Centerpiece, combines peonies, ranunculus, sweet peas and Kwanzan cherry branches. Branches add dimension and the small to larger flower blossoms add interest to the display. Clear wine glasses, simple china and classic flatware are a tasteful and serviceable complement. The pure set of crystal glasses or the Riedel set are good choices for beverages.
4. Understated Nautical Arrangements for the Season
For summer themed parties, nautical can be done with class. Seascape centerpieces can incorporate large glass candleholders with thick pillar candles, conch shells, cattleya orchids, small shells and coral elements. Earth tones can be incorporated when choosing linens and plates. Darker hues like Chocolate Brown or Khaki would contrast well with the lighter-colored elements. The Ivory with Gold Rim plates and china can be understated choice.
5. Organization for the Wine Connoisseur
Use wine bottles as markers. Use large cover-weight paper printed with table numbers and apply them over the existing labels with double-sided tape. This contemporary inclusion helps guests with seating, can be enjoyed during the event or taken home as a favor. Surround them with an arrangement of small to medium sized candles in clear votives or small vases with a few seasonal textured floral selections.
