Deck the Tables With Bows of Flowers

Posies are making their way out of bridal bouquets, off lapels and taking their rightful place as the center of attention as floral table runners.  While florals have long been used as accents and accessories, today’s couples are branching out and treating their guests to intimate, sensual whiffs of fragrance along with the main course.

Go casual chic with a show stopping display of mixed blooms and swathes of greenery.  Combine a variety of buds to complement your color scheme.  Pink peonies, lilac cosmos and deep purple anemones make for a fresh as a daisy display.  Strategically tuck in some unblemished stephanotis for an echo of your bridal bouquet.  Ivy and ferns are perfect for this stretched display, especially when draped and trailing over the sides for added interest.

Soft and Romantic or Crisp and Modern – Table Swags Do It All

Create a display that’s short, sweet and rainbow bright! Pack a footed presentation tray with low clusters of showy roses, fluffy dahlias, sweetly delicate lilies of the valley, and oversized hydrangeas. Ensure a composed display by sticking to two or three hues.  Sprinkle in some glittery votives for added sparkle and charm.

A muted, monochromatic spectacle is perfect for a classically elegant look.  An immaculate parade of snow-white blossoms is the perfect touch for your formal pageant.  Discreet bundles of white roses, beautifully scented gardenias, trumpet-like calla lilies, long lasting orchids and magnificent magnolias are the secret to this fantasy flourish.  White blooms are more prone to unsightly bruising, so keep your buds in a cool place and handle gently to keep them pure and unblemished.  Accent this presentation with twinkling strands of crystals and satin ribbons.

Whatever your style, floral table runners add a punch of polish and panache to your day in the spotlight!
