From table settings to outdoor lanterns, these delicate and elegant decorative accents take their cue from floral shapes and colors. Whether your gathering is inside or out, you can create the feel of a blooming botanical haven any time of year.
These dahlia-like bursts of color hang from the ceiling, adding charm to any party. Our tissue paper pom-poms can be made in the size and color of your choice.
Delicate and airy, this centerpiece composed of single blossoms lets you make the most of a limited group of flowers. Showcase each one -- we used dahlias and garden roses -- in clear glass vessels such as bud vases, jars, or even drinking glasses. To accentuate the arrangement, set the flowers on a runner with a hue that contrasts the color of the tablecloth.
A cherry-blossom branch fashioned into a place card greets your dinner guests with a sweet sign of spring. Press the stem into a small floral frog about the diameter of a quarter. Wrap a piece of pale-green grosgrain ribbon around the base, and secure with double-sided tape. Cut a leaf from a similar shade of vellum, write the invitee's name, and attach to the side of the branch using a hot-glue gun.
From the Sunflower State of Kansas, here's a way to welcome guests to the table with a great big hello. Trim sunflower stems short, so they fit into juice glasses. Cut paper into petal shapes and write guests' names on them. Then add the extra petal to the flowers with dots of tacky white glue.
