This weekend we were at Guildhall, one of our favourite London venues for large, prestigious events. We were asked to provide cost effective table centres for 70 tables for a charity dinner and auction. With such a large and ornate space, tall table centres are key and so our wrought iron candelabra were ideal, offering high impact at a low cost. These were simply decorated with ivy and placed along the centre of the tables. The space in between the candelabra was dressed with pots of spring bulbs including narcissi and hyacinths. Potted plants are a very reasonable way to decorate tables and they are available from all garden centres at this time of year. Moss and clusters of votives around the base of the pots finish the effect perfectly and for weddings, these centrepieces can double as favours, with guests able to take away a living plant at the end of the evening.
