It almost feels sacrilegious to say this…

Foliage might just be our new favourite kind of flower.

We know, we were taken aback too.

But it’s organic, rustic, and oh-so-chic.


 

XOXO!

Whether you're getting married in the country or throwing a casual wedding in the city this season, we love the look of fresh wild flowers arranged with a rustic touch. Between fiery foliage color schemes and warm, woodsy accents, wildflower wedding centerpieces can transform your venue tablescapes. Bring the outside in and embrace the changes around you with in-season flowers, on-theme colors, and motif-filled add-ons that welcome the cool weather.

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.
