How To: Arrange flowers at a dinner party

Arrange flowers at a dinner party

Lifestyle expert Clinton Kelly demonstrates how to throw a fabulous party. With great food, alcohol, and atmosphere you must also have fresh flowers to add ambiance. Big floral centerpieces overtake the room and have to be removed from the table when dining so that guests can see one another. Clinton recommends a low long floral arrangement that will not block guests. Staying in the same color family when choosing flowers is recommended. Start with small low container with room temperature water. If water is too cold it can shock the flowers and they will not last as long. Clinton starts by placing large peonies in the container. Add medium blooms of flowers of the same color family and small peony buds. If you do not want to put together a large arrangement you can always place fresh flowers in small bud vases or vessels. These vases or vessels can be found in thrift stores. Simply fill vases with water and place fresh flowers inside, add a green leaf in each vase and spread vases down table. Figure one two to vases per guest. Wah lah you have great floral arrangements.
