During the Victorian Era, people sent messages of friendship, love, and good health with tussie-mussies. They were most often made with herbs. You can convey welcome by tying a small arrangement to the back of each guest's chair. These bunches are Stephanotis and Forsythia clumped together with florist's tape. Insert the bunches into cones made from heavy art paper. Pretty buttons glued along the seams of the cones match the buttons on the napkins.
Corral silverware with paper folded and decorated like fanciful seed packets. Real ones would work, too, but these are more fun. Torn tissue paper forms the flowers.
