Wedding Tables “No Fly Zone”

Wedding season is among us! Having flowers in the centre of each table at your wedding reception can add romance, colour, beauty and can even be a conversation piece.

There is a special rule that you should follow when thinking about wedding centrepieces. It’s called “The No Fly Zone” or rather that’s what I call it. 🙂 That’s the area- approximately 12-18 inches up from the table. You should try to avoid having the fullest part of your centrepieces in this area.

If you are planning on having full floral centrepieces it’s best to have them either in a low container or in a taller vase or container. That way when the guests are seated they will be able to see the other people at the table and enjoy the celebratory atmosphere throughout the room that you have created.

Blooming Inside & Out!

So, now that we all have our gardens filled with plants, flowers & seeds- watching and waiting for the blooms to flourish- the inside of our houses are jealous of all the attention our yards are getting!

Using gerbera daisies, lilies and other flowers in oranges, pinks and yellows are popular for summer and guaranteed to brighten up any room.

If you are planning on sending flowers to the home, remember that Mom & Dad may be very busy for the first couple days. It may be best to wait a a day or two and give them some time to settle in. This way your flowers or gift will not be set aside where it may not be enjoyed.
