When it comes to decorating with flowers as centerpieces, the possibilities are plenty. Artificial floral wreaths, garlands, and arrangements set in containers are good options to try. Not only do they take the guesswork out of assembling flowers from scratch, but they also last for years.
In this post, Courtney of French Country Cottage shares some ideas for flower centerpieces. Then, we show other ways to play with seasonal blooms for your spring table centerpieces.
Romantic Flowers for Centerpieces: Ideas by Courtney of French Country Cottage
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 floral arrangement 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. First, 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. Then, when you’re done with your occasion, you can enjoy them as décor at home.
1. Flower Table Centerpieces
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, balanced look. As a result, it creates an elegant setting for your occasion.
Insider’s 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.
Insider’s Tip: If your florals are tall, offset the arrangements a bit from the place settings. This allows 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 flower garland. Garlands are easy to place down the center of the table without taking up too much space. Also, they’re not tall which makes them perfect for conversation and keeping an open view.
Insider’s Tip: Tuck a few fresh flowers or greenery into your garland to add a natural scent and customize the look for your style.
Insider’s 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!
