Day 23 of 30 Days & 30 Ways to Give Your Home Some Love – Set The Table with Fun Floral Arrangement Tips from Alpharetta Flower Market
Want to take your table setting skills to the next level? Add a do-it-yourself floral arrangement that will wow even the pickiest mothers-in-law. Follow these tips from pro florist Allison Schrade of the Alpharetta Flower Market to make sure your centerpiece is perfect!
Your floral arrangement should be no taller than nine inches. No one wants a bush blocking their view of the person across the table. By keeping all flowers less than nine inches tall, your guests will be able to see over the centerpiece and converse easily.
Stock the bottom of your floral arrangement with a variety of greenery. You can find magnolias, nandinas, and laurels in most Georgia backyards. These rich green leaves provide excellent color and volume for an impressive base.
Build upon your green base with focal flowers from your local florist or your backyard. Popular focal flowers include sunflowers, orchids, hydrangeas, and lilies.
Fill in your centerpiece with foraged greenery. A popular trend with floral designers, foraged greenery can be anything beautiful around your backyard from vines and shrubbery to fern fronds. Get creative and add in small fruits like bittersweet berries or pears speared with little skewers.
