The holidays are a wonderful time to host an event. People are in a charitable mood, there’s a lot of festive energy in the air and the weather is (for us anyway) beautiful! We’ve got three ways to style your event tables with flowers that will have your guests in the merriest of moods. And none of these approaches involves fake snow or mini-trees: we’ve kept it elegant through and through.
Cranberry & Plum
Don’t overlook this color story when it comes to planning the tables for your holiday event. Rich yet vibrant cranberry makes a marvelous complement to plummy purple, with its touch of majesty. Set off by evergreen and metallic accents, this color scheme is perfect for a luxe affair such as a fundraiser or a gala.
White is never so elegant as when it’s deployed on a rustic table, glammed up by gold or bronze place settings and floral vessels. The full range of whites creates a serene tablescape, especially when other earthy, organic elements are brought into the scene. This approach to holiday event flowers works indoors or out and keeps the focus on nature.
In The Reds
This classic color choice lends itself to a traditional holiday party or event. A surprising number of flowers have a red variety, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to just flowers to pull of this look. Weave in berries, evergreens and even fruits like the pomegranate shown here. Use pedestals and vessels of different heights and finishes to give the tablescape a modern look.
