LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - The Bouqs Company is an online flower delivery service that delivers fresh cut flowers from eco-friendly, sustainable farms around the world to doorsteps across the country.
A "Bouq" is one to seven days old, compared to the industry average of 17 days old, meaning Bouqs flowers can last up to two weeks with proper care.
Check out these summer tablescape tips from the experts:
Bud Vases (Juliet):
Add a bud vase at each table setting to round out your decor. Using a single stem in each vase gives you a lot of bang for your buck, and each flower type lends a unique feel to your tablescape. The diminutive yet ultra-elegant nature of miniature calla lilies, makes them a great option.
Tap into the table garland trend by adding bright florals and cool greenery for a look that makes your summer table absolutely sing. Start by layering the greenery together down the center of the table and steadying it with floral wire. Then toss in some focal flowers for a pop of color. Bouqs has a ton of arrangements with abundant spray roses (Carmel and Santa Cruz’n Bouqs) and alstroemeria (Wild About U Bouq) that are perfect for adding some season-friendly brightness to your garland. Just pull out a few stems and tuck them in, before featuring your Bouq front and center on the tablescape.
Floating Florals & Candles (Cabana):
Gerbera daisies are great swimmers! Before your next soiree, spare a few stems, add water to a bubble vase, and include the blooms for an easy, elegant centerpiece. Experiment with size, color and texture by mixing and matching different flower types. For day parties that flow into the evening, a tea light or two in the vase will give your centerpiece a cozy glow.
Succulent Table Setting (Wild About U):
Succulents are perhaps nature’s prettiest, most low-maintenance friend. And best of all, they’re an on-trend and easy way to complete your summer tablescape. You can pick up succulents from your local garden center or order the Wild About U Bouq to cap off each table setting. It’s a great way to hold down name cards on breezy evenings, and it also makes for a great take-home gift to offer your guests to plant for a gift that keeps on giving.
