Floral Party Decor
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.
Magnolia Blossom Table Centerpieces
Magnolia blossoms are beautiful harbingers of spring, but they're fragile and can be glorious one day, gone the next. Our wilt-free solution? Mix real leaves with gorgeous paper flowers.
Hanging Paper Flowers
With a few snips and folds, and a little imagination, you can turn humble paper bags into party-perfect decorations.
What could be easier than floating a few fresh garden roses, nasturtiums, and phlox in small bowls of water? But that's more than enough when they're placed upon a platform of pretty vintage tiles that serves as both a table runner and a trivet.
Parade of Blooms
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.
Hyancinth Bulb Centerpiece
This casual yet beautiful arrangement is perfect for a spring brunch or dinner.
Cherry-Blossom Place Cards
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.
Floating Flowers Centerpiece
Float flowers like these peonies in small bowls and arrange them on a simple white platter with votive candles for a quick, modern centerpiece. On a long table, you can place a few platters down the middle.
Mark the door to your next party with a traditional flower cone hung on your doorknob.
Sunflower Place Card
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.
