Skip the Florist

Arrange inexpensive grocery store flowers, such as mums, daisies, alstromeria or carnations, in simple, tightly clustered bouquets placed in small ironstone pitchers. Stack arrangements on glass cake pedestals of various heights for added impact.

Fun Meets Flouncy

Instead of basic white linens, opt for color and a touch of pattern, like these lime green and white houndstooth placemats. The upbeat pattern and color keep the traditional china from looking too formal and fussy.

A Tisket, a Tasket

Fill miniature baskets with Spanish moss and speckled candy eggs as a sweet treat for guests. Finish each basket with a small tag cut from iridescent scrapbook paper. Label each tag with a guest's name, then attach with twine or ribbon. Place one at each place setting so the favors can also function as place markers.
