Life's too short for boring to create amazing ambience at every table

Whether it's an intimate affair or a lavish soiree,  there are a few things to consider when choosing floral centerpieces. Nearly any event can be made more special with the right flowers, so let us guide you on how to make the right statement for your next social gathering.

Larger rooms with high ceilings will always lend themselves to grand and tall displays to really capitalize on all that space and volume. Think tall elongated branches and voluminous clusters of striking blooms to create a grand statement of style that will 'WOW' your guests as they enter the room.

A smaller more intimate venue may look overcrowded with too much in play at eye height - it also makes it more difficult to see your guests and promote social interaction. In this case it is best to stick with something low and maximize the table space to create your 'WOW' factor. Clusters of vases or pairing of candles and floral accents can bring a table space to life and set the mood for the whole event.

Knowing where your event is being held and the layout of the space is always a good place to start.

Round tables call for a detailed centerpiece that is equally stunning on all sides or a smattering of smaller jars with whimsical blooms artfully placed toward the middle of the table so each guest can appreciate a unique vignette of blooms.

A banquet table can be incredibly dramatic and welcoming with a long 'runner' of foliage's in different textures, keeping the colour scheme simple allows the length of the runner to make an impact. Bring a 'feasting table of plenty' vibe, by extending the runner to drape down to the floor OR try a repetition of a select few statement blooms placed in smaller bud vases or mini-milk bottles running down the length of the table, paired with a statement table runner.

Are you hosting an elegant and grand dinner or a casual chic cocktail party? Your desired mood for the event will dictate the flowers you choose.  Nothing says 'an evening of elegance' like roses in all shapes and sizes - Peonies, Garden Roses, David Austin's and Colombians just to name a few, neatly arranged in bespoke vessels for a touch of class. 

Your casual chic get together calls for fun and frivolity in your blooms.  Why not start with a 'left of centre' container like some mismatched jugs or brightly coloured vase ware and then keep on going with bright pops of colour in various blooms (even include some lemons or limes cut in half for something different) with textural foliage's and berries to create a talking point for all of your seated guests.

Summer fiesta's are the perfect occasion for deep red & pink blooms nestled tightly with succulents and textural intrigue. Whilst high-tea would be perfectly accompanied by clustered vases of bright yellows for an elegant afternoon with the ladies.
