I have been trying to come up with some simple ways of having some floral arrangements in the house for the party. Luckily simple modern floral design is very in style right now so I feel like I can have fresh flowers in the house and still make the arrangements not too feminine. I do not own a lot of vases so I tend to use any container I can find as a vase. This tends to force me to be a little bit more creative in the styling of the arrangement. I want the colors to be simple so I’m only going to use whites, greens and browns. I need one floral for the food table, one for the coffee table and something special for our wine room (it’s not really a fancy wine room, more like the room were we happen to keep our 2 whole bottles of wine.)
My dining table is very long so I’m going to need something that can span the length of it because all of the food and desserts will be spread out across it. I plan to use my stemless wine glasses to accomplish this. I want one simple white rose with a little greenery in each glass and I want the glasses to be spaced evenly all the way down the table. I bought some green moss to intermingle through the wine glasses. You could easily add some candles to this arrangement or place ornaments in between to jazz it up for a holiday.
For the coffee table I used a large round bowl that I typically use for salads and filled it with white pom flowers. These flowers are relatively inexpensive and take up a lot of space. My mother has the most beautiful backyard with several dozen hydrangea bushes that have a million blooms on them so I asked her to cut me some for the party. Her hydrangea’s happen to be greenish white so they looked perfect with the rest of my decor. I totally forgot to take a picture of this so you all are going to have to use your imagination!
Now the wine room was the best! Our awesome friends Eddie and Barry filled the ceiling of the room with green, brown and white balloons. It was such an amazing detail and everyone wanted to take turns hanging out in the balloon room. It was simple in design but looked absolutely stunning. Eddie owns Balloon City USA which is not your grandma’s balloon company. You want a larger than life size toy soldier made of balloons at your next Christmas party you call them. Need an under the sea octopus extravaganza? Eddie can build it! Talk about some unexpected creations!!
Look at how cool that is!
