A Water Garden Centerpiece

by Simone Hill

“A tablescape that highlights fresh blooms in a water garden, is not only elegant, but a lovely way to bring layers to an intimate setting," says celebrity event planner Preston Bailey. A low rectangular plexiglass container filled with water, flowers, and candles add an element of surprise to an otherwise simple and chic table. By incorporating simple flower arrangements of white roses, lily of the valley, and ranunculuses, the water garden makes a bold statement without going over-the-top. The best part about this design? It's low so it makes it easy for guests across the tables from each other to interact with each other.
