With Easter just around the corner I thought I would share one of my favourite ways to dress a table with flowers. The look is so simple and the flowers can be totally tailored to the time of year and your flower budget. I used 5 vases of varying shapes but roughly all the same height and size (as always, I got my vases at the Dollar Store- you just can’t beat them!). I used 5 different types of flowers, filling each vase with just a single type. Choosing a colour scheme is important so that there is a nice consistency when you have 5 totally different arrangements. I chose spring colours – pink, white, and yellow, and I had some repetition with the colours and also the flower types – 2 vases of mini carnations, 2 vases of pink flowers, and the centre tulips combined yellow and pink. Repetition of colour is important in order to make something pleasing and calming to the eye. The flowers which I used were: one dozen pink roses; 1 bunch white mini carnations,; 30 yellow and pink tulips; 1 bunch pink mini carnations; and 15 daffodils. The great thing about this table set up is that all of these flowers came from my local grocery store and the price was quite reasonable. To see how I made the tulip vase arrangement take a look at this post from a few weeks back – How to: Tulip Arrangements.
Different vases, each filled with a different type of flower, can work in many variations depending on the theme of your table setting. I think it would be lovely with all the vases in gold (like I did in this post) for an evening event. As a simpler variation of this I am itching to try this with just boxwood and baby’s breath in alternating vases (this would also be super cost efficient!).
