For a reception, brighten plain dinnerware with a sprinkling of cheerful blooms that coordinate beautifully with your centerpieces.

  1. Arrange the flowers (we used cosmos, larkspur, marigolds, and verbena) on chargers, then cover them with clear glass plates.

  2. Place cards, featuring a pressed bloom attached with double-sided tape, tie it all together. For maximum impact, we set our colorful floral motif against a white backdrop.
