Create a florist-quality flower arrangement in just a few steps. Select a couple different flowers in one main color and add interest with a flower in an accent hue. Fit floral foam into chosen vase and start experimenting with tight, full arrangements. For a natural touch, set the vases down inside bark cylinder sleeves.
Light up a floral centerpiece by scattering tea lights around the base. Black tea light holders with gold interior play off of the gold tones in the dinner plates and flatware. Trays of vegetables or fruits are always a stylish and easy way to build up a centerpiece.
Effortless and Chic
Combine a neutral hue with metallic accents for a low, eye-catching centerpiece. Cream pillar candles create a warm glow along the center of the table, while scattered potpourri in shades of gold adds visual interest.
For a simple, yet elegant, centerpiece, fill tall glass hurricane vases with pussy willow branches. They add height to the table without obstructing a guest's view.
Create a casual, backyard-style centerpiece with a concrete planter full of succulents. For a bit of whimsy, place small glass bottles with a single flower stem around the planter.
