There’s a reason why I don’t go that often to the flower market, and that’s because I always end up with my apartment looking like a flower shop!
Which is not such a bad thing, isn’t it?
I was there a couple of weeks ago and this time I’ve decided to do a floral inspired table setting. Hope you’ll like it!
Gather a bunch of jars and glasses that you have at home. They don’t need to match, in fact the more variety the better. I’ve used anything from shots glasses, regular glasses, apothecary jars, mason jars, glass juice bottles etc. Play with different heights and shapes.
Fill all glasses and jars with water. If you’d like your flowers to last a bit longer, you can add a tablespoon of vodka in a liter of water. I know it’s weird but it helps preserve fresh-cut flowers.
Start by cutting the stems shorter to fit the jars. Don’t get too precise, play with different heights, and variety of flowers.
Keep adding flowers and greenery until you’re happy with the result.
Place the tableware as you prefer. I decided to add folded napkins on top of the plates with some flowers and place cards.
You can download here the place cards I’ve used.
