Party Decorating With Flowers ~ Flower Centerpiece Ideas
Decorating with flowers is easy and makes such a beautiful statement. You can use silk flowers or fresh. The best place to use flowers in your party decorating is creative centerpieces.
Silk flowers have got a bad rap through the years. But I must say, I really enjoy using them in decorating and they make for really stunning centerpieces.
Do it yourself centerpieces are not hard when you use flowers. Every one loves flowers, so you really can't go wrong when decorating with flowers at a party or event. And if you need an inexpensive centerpiece idea, go with silk flowers.
I use them in my home, weddings, baby showers, and all the parties I decorate for. I even have a pink rose in my green Volkswagon Bug! So go ahead and use silk flowers.
Any party theme will benefit from flowers or greenery. Even parties for boys. You might not want roses, but you could have fresh grass, ivy, ect.
Flowers create instant WOW. And if they're fresh flowers, they make the party area smell so nice.
Be careful though, some flowers smell stronger than others. You don't want to drive everyone away.
You just want a subtle touch.
Basic Rules For Decorating With Flowers
- Pick coordinating colors
- Use an odd number of flowers
- Keep with the party theme and colors
- Remove leaves below water level(fresh flowers)
- Cut ends of flowers in a slant(fresh flowers)
- Cut stems under water(fresh flowers)
- Think beyond the usual vase for a container
But the best rule of all is, ignore all the rules and go with your gut. Have fun with it. This is a party! A time to relax and enjoy yourself.
It doesn't have to be elaborate. A single rose in a vase is sweet and can set a mood.
