Consider Your Table Size
For tables that seat 4-6 people, I like to do a grouping for my centerpieces. For this, I focus on collecting pieces of varying heights, then dispersing my flowers throughout. It can be dramatic and lovely to add a single sprig of blooms to a tall vase.
Seriously, ribbon is my favorite. Add a wide, textural ribbon to the vase for another pop of green.
