· ·



A few weeks ago I was visiting my daughter (Ashley) in Miami and she thought it is fun to plan a fall floral-inspired party in honor of my visit. I was so excited!

Florals are very much part of the decor in Miami. There are lots of ornate flower fixtures all over this beautiful city.  So, to get inspired, Ashley and I headed to one of these fixtures down the road from her apartment.

We both were clear in our minds we wanted something colorful & eclectic. We were pleasantly surprised to find exactly what we wanted – bright yellow roses to lavender daisies. It was the first time I had worked with so many different varieties of flowers for the table, and I was hooked.

Here is a 4-step D.I.Y to get gorgeous fall flowers to swoon over:

Step 1: Choose six types of flowers

To get the fullness, we mixed 6 different types of flowers in tall, medium, and small white vases.

Step 2: Start with the taller vases

Since color is very important, but the brighter colors in the taller vases so they can really be on display. Cut the stems so the flowers are able to spread out. Place the smaller vases at the ends. (Use your own judgment in placement. Anything goes as long as there are even mixture of color)

Step 3: Adding the china & pumpkins

While Ashley was placing the china, I filled her dessert bowls with nesting material where the mini pumpkin was to be placed. I then tied the place card with the guest’s name.

Step 4: Final step

As a final touch. We added a white cake stand along with vanilla butter iced cupcakes. I loved the look.

Here are some pictures right before the dinner party started. My favorite is this pic of the floral arrangements in the mirror. Enjoy!
