Creative Florals

Flowers can really make or break a reception. Here are some amazing ways to use blooms to show your creative side.

These fun flowers are actually made of yarn! Use a couple in a vase on your cocktail tables, bar, or guest book table.

A peony can make a pretty bold statement but they are also one of the most expensive flowers you can buy. Lucky for us, they look incredible on their own. Use one stem in a tall cylinder vase with pillar candles and you have a gorgeous centerpiece.

If this isn't dramatic, I don't know what is. These floating tuplips above this display table took up all the attention so the centerpieces could afford to be subtle.

If you are using long tables at your reception (which I love by the way), go with a table runner of flowers. Use a couple stems of the same flower in a vase, space it with a couple of votives or tealights, and repeat all the way down the table.

Manzita trees look amazing in a tall space. I love the idea of the tree being decorated in a solid color, like this red one here. Alternate between tables with your wedding colors.
