3. Different arrangements for each table
A large trend for 2016 is varied centerpieces for each table. Whether some tables have high centerpieces and others have low centerpieces or every arrangement is different, this can be a great way to add visual interest to your event overall. At the event pictured below, every vase has a different pop of color and different blossom. This can create a playful look for a fun party.

5. Blossoms at each place setting
For a really over-the-top look, add blossoms at each place setting. This could be as simple as a stick of rosemary, some delicate petals, or a striking floral stack as pictured. Blossoms at each place setting create a cohesive look and make an event feel personalized.

6. Think up!
Who says flowers have to be on the table? It may take some planning, but floral chandeliers or custom hanging arrangements like this one can create a spectacular look at any event. Custom-made birch hangers dripping with orchids and suspended glass globes were the perfect showpiece for this large space.

What's in a vase?

For any event or wedding, the centerpiece is the showpiece of the table. The chairs, the linens, the flatware all lead up to the center of the table where the flowers sit. But, also important to the overall look is the vessel that those flowers are sitting in. It is the balance between the blossoms and the vase that make an exceptional showpiece. 

For some, this balance might be a rich, full, opulent bouquet resting in a streamlined vase. Or maybe simple, studded blossoms in curvaceous, towering glass. Whatever the look you are going for may be, the vase is an important component to consider. 

Here are some fun vases we love that would be the perfect compliment to any floral piece!
