Reception Design 3

Reception Design 3: Floating Orchids

Crisp. Clean. Modern.

Each table will have a square pilar of floating orchids. Some will have white catalayas, others will have red cymbidiums, and even still others will have white dendrobiums. Around each column will be square votive holders. The variety of orchids and three different heights will provide texture and visual interest while the uniformity of shape will create a feel that is modern and simple.

alternations might include: Having a very large centerpiece of orchids on the buffet or on the cake table.

If we place a small mirror under each arrangement then the ambient light will reflect upwards and appear to illuminate the orchids which is part of the appeal you probably found in the photos you sent me - lighting.

pairs well with: Escort "cards" made of polished river rocks on a bed of green moss. Guests might enjoy a favor table with chocolate bars with the couple's name printed on the outside and chocolate covered cherries for sharing.
