lets get the party started and have an affair to remember!
 
Beautiful front door decorations
 
The first glimpse of the party should be from the best vantage point, use wired hearts bound in ivory with organza ribbon or with low key swags of greenery, a tag with a small posy of flowers tied to a gate or doorhandle saying 'welcome'...
 
 
Get glowing
 
Lighting can make or break an event, create the right ambiance by flanking a doorway with dozens of luminaria, or setting the tables with either candles in lanterns or clusters of small candles around the flowers, scented candles can add to the ambiance use a scent to compliment your flowers. 
 
 
Choose a theme
 
I'm not talking in bad taste here -  just a colour pairing or a food or flower that evokes a favourite place, a repeated element helps both personalise and unify your party space.
 
 
Flowers
 
Keep floral table centres under 14 or over 20 inches high so guests can view and converse with each other across the table
..think outside the box...use frosted fruit as an edible centrepiece..
