My New Obsession

Good Morning!!! I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hopefully a few days off of work to spend with friends and family like I did.  The holidays can be stressful but this year for some reason, I really enjoyed Thanksgiving and being able to truly relax and spend time with friends and family.  We have a really productive and fun filled weekend, we got most of our outdoor Christmas lights up, did a little Christmas shopping, had dinner with family and even had my daughters friends over for a sleep over lol yes my daughter is only 2 :) non the less it is back to work this morning and I thought what a better way to start my day then a recap of the holiday and a beautiful blog post showing off some of my current obsessions as well as creative inspiration :)

Suspended Centerpieces!

There are always new trends coming and going when it comes to centerpieces, when I saw this one I have to say it was Love at first sight.  Rather than the centerpiece sitting directly on the table a suspended centerpieces hangs right above it.  What I love about it

  • It adds drama and interest to your table
  • It is defiantly something your guests will be talking about therefore it creates conversations
  • It is non obstructive, your guests will not have any problem conversing at the table
  • Its just Beautiful!!!

Suspended centerpieces can be achieved several ways.  You can use blooming branches similar to what is shown here which gives a beautiful effect.  You can use a large grouping of flowers, or perhaps individual blooms.  Candles are also beautiful suspended in glass containers.  Creating a grouping of flowers also simulates a floral chandelier which can be very elegant.

Thing to keep in mind:

Your venue, what type of ceiling does it have? a suspended centerpiece may not be as feasible to achieve if the venue has tall ceilings.  Be sure to get approval from your venue before hanging anything from the ceiling.  Secondly, make sure you have a method to hang the arrangement.

If this is something you’d be willing to try at your event, let us know!  IF you have achieved this look at your own event we would love to see pictures!!!!

Inspirationally Yours,
