Black Accents Are Back
We’re talking little black lacquer flower vases, black pillows in the lounge area, black glassware. To keep it from looking too dark, choose a deep jewel tone like deep blue, purple, or even red. It'll give your reception that timelessly chic, formal, time-for-cocktails-and-fun feel.

Props as Centerpieces
Re-think the term, reception centerpiece and incorporate decorative accessories (like the kind you would use to spruce up a coffee table, kitchen shelf, or fireplace mantle) into your centerpieces. Sparkly spheres, brilliant mercury glass pieces, or even a retro scale topped with fruit and flowers like this one can become the focal point of your tables.

Fabric Wrapped Vases
Forget about stressing over roses versus lilies and put the focus on your vases by wrapping them in eye-catching fabrics to give them a textured look and feel. To keep he look clean (not messy), choose flowers in the same colour like this all-white table here.

A sweet mix of pink and browns are pleasing to the eye. Consider short flower arrangements to keep the focus on the colour theme.
