Dinner parties can be stressful, so let Florious help with a gorgeous centerpiece. When deciding on the centerpiece for your next event, founder Melissa McCaughey suggests three rules of thumb:
Refrain from the use of strongly scented flowers. They can have an intense impact on a guest’s palate, which detracts from the taste of the delicious food you’re serving. And who wants guests sneezing and sniffling at your dinner table? There are lots of beautiful flowers with minimal or no scent.
Keep your centerpiece low. Guests gather for delicious food, and to mingle and converse. It’s important to facilitate eye contact across the table. With a low focal point of gorgeous luxury flowers, pleasant conversation will flow unobstructed.
Right-size your centerpiece. Ensure that the centerpiece size is appropriate for the table shape and size as well as the place settings. When serving a family-style meal, place the serving platters you plan to use on the table prior to selecting a centerpiece. Be sure that guests can access the platters. Then choose a centerpiece(s) to beautifully complement your table arrangement.
And that's it! Keeping our suggestions in mind, why not order the centerpiece for your next party today and cross it off of your to-do list!
