Now, let’s have a look at some important considerations you need to have in mind when choosing a flower arrangement which will take your dinner party to the next level
- Carefully choose the scent of your flower arrangements
“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”. This Shakespeare line represents the beauty of the roses scent. But, if you are planning a dinner party, this sweet smelling flower may not be exactly what you want. People’s sense of taste is highly affected by their sense of smell, meaning when people are congested they’ll have a hard time tasting their food. The combination of tastes and scents might be a little too much.
Strong smelling flowers, such as roses or lilacs are really beautiful, but can easily overwhelm a space especially if it is a small room or if food is involved... but, essentially it’s completely up to you, these are just our friendly suggestions.
- Be aware of the height of your flower arrangements/position
Tasty food is essential for a good dinner party, but you should be aware that the conversation is just as important, and can be easily obstructed by high flower arrangements in the middle of the table. If you do have really big flower arrangements, place them in a position where they won’t obstruct any conversations such as on shelves, or book shelves.
A beautiful centerpiece can create an incredible first impression on your guests, but once they sit on the table, it can become quite unpleasant as they won’t be able to see the other guests, therefore not be able to begin a conversation with them.
- Choose the flower colours depending on your occasion
There are many rules around flower colours; which colours are appropriate and when. For example, white flowers are known to represent pure love and red carnations passion. At the same time, white lilies are known to be a symbol of purity of a soul and mourning.
