Floral table decor works well for a variety of occasions including weddings, formal dinners and holidays. Creating simple floral arrangements as table decorations is an easy project and requires only a few elements. Simple floral table decor does not follow any particular design; you have the freedom to create the flowery embellishment of your choice.

Holiday and Seasonal Centerpieces

Create holiday and seasonal centrepieces by using flowers and colours of the season in conjunction with holiday decorations. For example, a floral Easter table centrepiece comprises a pedestal and a clear glass bowl filled with painted Easter eggs and adorned with fresh flowers such as carnations or lilies. Paint each egg a single, pastel shade so the eggs do not overpower the flowers, but instead complement them. Place a small amount of water at the bottom of the bowl for the flowers, and put the eggs in the bowl. Arrange the flowers around the eggs in any design you want.

Follow a similar idea during fall or for Halloween but replace the eggs with small pumpkins or gourds. Consider hollowing out a large pumpkin to serve as the display dish instead of a clear glass bowl and fill it with only flowers such as bromeliads. Place a shallow plate or dish at the bottom of the pumpkin to hold water for the flowers.

Teapot Arrangements

Use a decorative ceramic teapot to hold a small collection of flowers for a formal dinner party. Visit a second-hand store to find a teapot because you will be using it only as a vase. Second-hand stores typically have a collection of mismatched teapots, which is another option for decorating a table. Choose similar-looking or completely different teapots and fill them with a small amount of water. Add a bunch of small flowers such as daisies and violets, or a few larger ones such as peonies.

Traditional Vases

Traditional, decorative vases work well for holding dried flowers because dried flowers are not as vibrant as fresh flowers and will not visually overwhelm the vase. Some traditional or antique vases are made of porous materials and are not suitable for holding water so they must hold dried flowers, which do not require any water. Dried flowers also last longer than fresh flowers so this type of floral table decor is suitable for extended celebrations. Seek out tall dried flowers for tall vases and shorter, fuller flowers for squat vases.
