If there is one thing that we’ve learned from creating floral designs for almost every event space in New York City, it is that nothing transforms a room and says beauty and opulence like lush tall centerpieces. With so many stunning, New York City wedding venues featuring dramatic, vaulted ceilings, we simply feel the need to play into the drama with tall floral arrangements.
While high centerpieces are often more expensive than low centerpieces, there are ways to save on costs and still wow your guests. Ask your floral designer for ideas. For starters, doing a mixture of high and low is a great way to transform your space and not max out your flower budget. We also love to use hydrangeas in high centerpieces. Not only are they one of the most beautiful and romantic flowers, but they are large and lush so they automatically add volume to your centerpiece. Another trick is to layer the flowers within the high centerpiece, adding more dimension and creating the illusion that it’s even larger.
