Low

If you are designing a centerpiece for a table that serves as a gathering spot - whether in the den, breakfast nook or office conference room - remember that people need to see each other above the flowers. Choose low arrangements and simple designs, and make sure the flowers complement the container. The flowers will also last longer, as their stems will be short.
