Styling a pretty table for a special occasion is always a fun thing to do. And with lots of sunshine and longer daylight, spring is a perfect time to host a fun garden party or gathering with friends.
Today I am going to share two simple spring centerpiece ideas using the charming Napa Romance florals from Balsam Hill.
While fresh flowers are always beautiful, using faux florals for a table centerpiece definitely has a few perks. One is that you don’t have to worry about keeping them looking fresh until guests arrive. They won’t wilt or droop in the sun on a warm day. And when you are done with your occasion, you can enjoy them as décor in your home.
1. Floral Arrangements on the Table
This type of centerpiece is classic. It’s just as perfect for long beautiful tables as it is for smaller ones. Spacing them down a long table creates a beautiful repetitive look. And as a result, it creates an elegant setting for your occasion.
Style Tip: Use several arrangements on a long table. I generally prefer to use 3 or 5 arrangements for a longer table. For small tables, a single arrangement in the center is perfect.
Style Tip: If your florals are tall, offset the arrangements a bit from the place settings to allow guests to be able to see across the table and have unobstructed conversations.
2. Garland as a Table Centerpiece
One of my favorite ways to create a beautiful centerpiece is to use a garland. Garlands are easy to place down the center of the table without taking up too much space. They also are low to the table which makes them perfect for conversation and keeping an open view.
Style Tip: Tuck a few fresh flowers or greenery into your garland to add a natural scent and customize the look for your style.
Style Tip: Make sure you have enough garland for the length of the table. And then some. I love to have a bit of the garland drape down at each end of the table. It creates an elegant look and is a beautiful finishing touch.
Either one of these flower centerpiece ideas will work beautifully for a spring tablescape and for tables throughout the year. Happy entertaining!
