Holiday Snow Globes

Flower Arrangement Tips For Your Next Table

Finding the Perfect Flowers for Your Table Arrangement

Floral table arrangements add a touch of elegance to dinner parties, holiday gatherings and other special events. Creating your own arrangements saves money and allows you to get creative color. You don’t have to be a pro to put together beautiful collections of flowers. A little planning is all it takes to get everything just right.

Consider the Season

The best flowers for any party are those currently in bloom. Instead of driving yourself crazy trying to find “exotic” flowers to grace your tables, look for seasonal flowers the same way you shop for seasonal produce. Some of the most popular flowers by season are:

• Spring: anemones, apple blossoms, daffodils, hyacinths, lilacs, peonies, sweet pea, tulips and ranunculus
• Summer: alliums, chrysanthemums, forget-me-nots, foxglove, freesias, gardenias, hydrangeas, lavender, lilies and snapdragons
• Fall: aster, baby’s breath, dahlias, marigolds, orchids, Queen Ann’s lace, roses, sunflowers and zinnias
• Winter: amaryllis, carnations, holly, jasmine, poinsettias, star of Bethlehem, star gazer lilies and pansies

Keep in mind some seasonal flowers have very heavy scents. Stick with lightly scented or scent-free flowers to accommodate guests with allergies and sensitivities. Tulips, roses, lilies and ranunculus are all good choices.
