Determining how and if guests will be seated is an important step in planning your party decorations. Be sure to avoid inviting more guests than your table or location can comfortably handle.
For low-light or candlelight use lighter or "warmer" colored flowers - such as yellows, oranges and reds. Whites and lighter colors are also excellent reflective choices for candlelight. Avoid "cooler" colors such as purple, violet or dark blue - these are considered passive colors and don't reflect light as well. For bright spaces anything goes. Since bright light is highly reflective and shows color in it's purest hue you might want to use deeper or darker tones such as burgundy, purple or deep blue.
Extra light can add dimension to any party. Add a few white "twinkle lights" to trees or try shining an inexpensive work light or can light onto a floral arrangement for dramatic impact. These can easily be hidden with a plant or cloth.
When planning your floral décor, think of the way you might make the best use of color to enhance the environment. Take a cue from the type of food you plan to serve. To make the most of a zesty Mexican meal, spice it up with bright reds and golds. If a romantic wedding brunch in a traditional setting is on the agenda, pastels may be the perfect choice. A casual pasta dinner might call for eclectic colors.
While almost "anything goes" in flowers, there are certain varieties or design styles that best enhance the look or environment you are trying to achieve. We can help you with appropriate choices that will both highlight your mood or theme and stay within your budget.
