So, you just booked your dream venue. It has everything you’ve been looking for: crisp white floors, tall vaulted ceilings, and a grand staircase that’s going to make your entrance spectacular! Then suddenly, you remember that you’ve pinned about 1,000 mason jar centerpieces and are freaked that your tables are going to look empty in this expansive space. So what do you do? Do you go with the design you’ve always loved, or do you adapt to your space and choose something that is as grand as that staircase? In today’s post, we're breaking down our rules for choosing the best centerpiece for your tables and space. Of course, rules can always be broken, so you do you, girl!
In my fairytale land, I am surrounded by fields of dahlias, gardens lush with ranunculus and yards filled with peonies. I wish that I could wake up next to a huge vase of garden roses or cymbidium orchids and smell the sweet scent of lilac. But, since I don’t live in fairytale land and can’t always get my hands on my favorite premium flowers, I have curated a list of just as lovely substitutes. We use these a lot to help cut costs in centerpieces or bridesmaid bouquets, or when the premium flower isn't in season. Best part of all? We promise you won’t even notice the difference!
Jaclyn and I love hosting flower classes, and showing people what they can create with a few fresh blooms and some greenery (if you’re interested in booking a class — CLICK HERE).
