It is a better idea to pre organize the table so you can leave plenty of space for everything else you will need.


Like table ware, glasses, plates and food etc. The centerpiece should bond with the rest of the decorations.

When you arrange your centerpiece don’t just place a single item in the center of the table. Place assorted decorations around it.
