Florets - Floral Quote - # 69 - by Rebecca Tanqueray





" If you want to place flowers in the middle of the table, make sure the arrangement is not too tall; your guests should be able to see over it easily in order to chat. 
How you present flowers is up to you, but generally, the more creative you are, the more impact the arrangement will have. Instead of the usual bunch of flowers in a vase, experiment with single blooms in tumblers or eggcups, use a large bowl or even a cake stand for a pretty central display. You could even scatter petals across the tabletop. Flowers should be an eye-catching focal point, so play around with different effects and see what works best."
