I get a lot of emails from readers with questions about how to create specific elements of a party like table settings, dessert tables, backdrops, etc. I’ve decided this year I will try and tackle as many of the basic “how to’s” as I can. I tend to forget that even though I can look at a photo’s contents piece by piece to analyze “what works” and why it works, many home entertainers don’t see things in that way. I’m going to try to break it down for you as best I can to help you design prettier parties for you and your guests.

I’ll start with my favorite point of display – the seated table. Specifically I want to talk about the importance of centerpieces and how to arrange them for the most visually pleasing effect.  Using some of my own favorite table designs as examples, here are my secrets to a fabulous centerpiece arrangement.

Sometimes small organic items can go a long way (and without incurring too much cost)


Tile can also serve as a creative runner and can be mixed and matched and used in many different ways.

Final Tips to Remember:

  • Table Runners – Don’t forget about adding table runners. These can add visual interest without taking up table space. Use fabric off the bolt, rolls of craft paper or wrapping paper, ribbon, or other items to create a runner effect.
  • Long Narrow banquet tables – Create mini vignettes down the middle; Create symmetry with simple items that look equally pretty from all sides.
  • Dining Room tables – These are usually much wider and provide more space to create large focal points such as a great flower arrangement or large vases.
  • Round tables – Fill the center of the table with a single vignette that showcases something unique at each direction; Using one large flower arrangement is a classic choice here.

 We are obsessed with Tassel Balloons - they are for every occasion and make quite the impression without spending a ton!

Composite bouquets are used as an alternative to the conventional bridal bouquets.

This type of bouquets has a special technique to make. They are actually flower petals, wired piece by piece to make a large bloom and become a beautiful flower bouquet for weddings.

 

Rose is the most used flower for this bouquet, even they can be made with almost any flower.

A composite bouquet or a glameria is a single bloom bouquet carried by brides who love unique ideas for their wedding, even though the glameria bouquet is not new (it was quite popular in the 1930's).
