Today’s Bouquet Inspiration by Violet shows us how we can Decorate for a Dinner Party without Stress! (Thanksgiving is coming quickly)! Read on to see how you can create these Fun and Festive Fall Centerpieces perfect for a Wedding, Thanksgiving Dinner, or Fall Feast!
Wholesale Flowers Used:
- 8 bunches Orange Celosia
- 8 bunches Gold Orange Seeded Eucalyptus
- 90 stems Unique Spider Flower
- 60 stems Bronze Football Mums
Decide how many centerpieces (#1 and #2) you want based on how long your table is or how many tables you have and divide your flowers up accordingly, leaving enough for an entry or buffet piece (#3), if you want one. I would suggest using around 25-40 stems, plus about 10 mum heads to float inside, in the entry piece, depending on how full you want it and how big your vase is. For each of the long and low centerpieces (#1) I would suggest using around 8-15 stems of focal flowers (the spider and football mums) and then fill in with celosia and seeded eucalyptus. Again this number can depend on how many centerpieces you want and how full you want them. The small clusters of centerpieces with candles (#2) will require mostly seed eucalyptus, with a few mums and celosia. Now, lets go over each centerpiece style…
Use short rectangular vases or containers to create these long and low centerpieces. I would suggest using floral foam inside, especially if you don’t use glass containers, since it will help keep your flowers in place as you arrange as well as keep them fresher longer. Use a mix of the Bronze Football Mums and the Unique Spider Mums as your focal flowers, then fill in with Orange Celosia and Seeded Eucalyptus as needed. Keep the arrangements about 20 inches or lower for easy eye contact between all guests!
Centerpiece #2 – Cluster of Candles and Small Arrangements
Add in small clusters of different arrangements to keep things interesting! First, from left to right, fill a tall vase with a few mum heads (doesn’t not have to fill the entire vase), then place a candle holder over the vase opening and place a candle on top. Then fill a small short vase with a mix of flowers (you can make them all different or the same, I like them different to mix it up!). And last, decorate a short candle and candle holder by placing some seeded eucalyptus around the candle.
Centerpiece #3 – Entry or Buffet Piece
To create a large Entry or Buffet Piece use a tall weighted vase and an arrangement of all the flowers to make a stylish statement! You can also float a few mum heads in the vase for added drama and interest.
