Distinctive, dynamic, and versatile come to mind when thinking about the table decor ideas that we are going to highlight. Trading out the single centerpiece, grouped arrangements offer endless design and styling opportunities for your wedding reception. Typically composed of three or more small arrangements, they can feature a floral recipe evenly distributed through the composition or one type of flower in each vase, exuberant color or a monochrome palette, vessels of different sizes and shapes or a uniform collection. Whether your wedding style is classic and sophisticated, contemporary chic, or whimsical garden, the creative possibilities using grouped arrangements are limitless.
