    • Lovely Table Setting

      Transform an ordinary table into a chic dining spot with these simple steps. Decorate the area around the centerpiece with contemporary block letters that spell out "LOVE" or the bride's/couple's names. Then add DIY tropical tea-light holders, created from small white dipping dishes filled with sand and a colorful tea light. For a quick & easy custom table topper, cut a large square from a roll of colorful gift wrap and layer it over your tablecloth.

    • Personalized Centerpiece

      Create a custom centerpiece for the bride-to-be by flipping a small white bowl upside down to act as a pedestal for larger bowl. Fill the larger bowl with sand, place a large wooden letter in the center, then lay one or two orchids' stems around the edges to add color.

    • Fresh Setting

      Customize place settings to match the colors of your flowers. Fold linen or dinner-sized paper napkins into small squares by folding each of the napkin's four corners in toward one another, then top the squares with a generously sized fresh or faux orchid bloom.

    • A Taste of Paradise

      To set an organic feel for the shower, wrap the stems of cocktail glasses with simple green floral tape, and garnish regular drinking glasses with a fresh orchid bloom.

    • Simple Accessories

      Set the tropical vibe in your party decor by repeating the decorative elements and ideas from the tabletop design, keeping everything simple, modern, and elegant. Use solid-colored dishware, vases, accent papers, and table linens so the orchid remains in the spotlight.

    • Blooming Decor

      For an easy decorative element, showcase single stems of orchids in contemporary vases or lay them out horizontally to decorate different party areas such as drink displays and gift tables.

    • Tea-Light Tumblers

      Set out purple tea lights in sand-filled dipping dishes to create a romantic ambiance. If your party is at night, adorn the room with white twinkle lights and lime green, plum, and purple paper lanterns.
