Flowers can make fabulous favours, especially for your female guests. If your favours are presented at table settings, they also add extra decoration to your tables. Here are a few ways they work well:
- tiny posies of flowers on the napkin of each female guest
- a fresh flower tucked in to a bow on a favour box
- a fresh flower in a tiny individual vase (or candle votive) for each guest.
Flowers at the reception venue
From table centrepieces to chair back decorations, flowers are a crucial part of your reception venue decoration. Your reception venue is the place where you'll be spending the most time. It's the setting for your wedding breakfast, speeches and the cutting of your cake, and probably for your evening entertainment, so it's wise to spend the most money on decoration here. Depending on your venue, you might consider:
- pedestals in the entrance areas
- chair back decorations
- table arrangements
- fresh petal confetti over the tables
- floral favours
Flowers for chair backs
Adorning your chair backs with floral decorations can look stunning. Keep costs down by opting for simple arrangements, decorating every other chair or just decorating the chairs on the top table. The key is not to have the top table chairs against the wall so this works best with a round top table in the centre of the room.
Flowers for tables
Some kind of table arrangement is a must for your reception tables -We can suggest to fit in with your budget and reception style. The most successful arrangements are either tall enough to allow your guests to see each other underneath, or short enough to allow them to see each other over the top.
