Q I want showstopping centrepieces! What can I do that hasn't been seen before?
A Emma Fews says: For the real wow factor when you walk in the room, go big on florals and mass foliage for a wild and natural look. Hiring silk flower centrepieces can be more cost effective than fresh allowing you to go bigger for a smaller price. Choosing a good supplier that uses good quality silk flowers is a must, and your guests need never know that they're not real! Ensure your display is on a transparent vase or a stand that doesn't block the view when your guests are seated. Geometric stands are perfect as you can see right through them when sat at the table and they give a lovely height for that all important gorgeous silk flower display! Little details are also important – choose some candles at the base or hanging candles for that extra romantic touch.

Mix and match! If you have over 10 tables, consider pairing with matching low centrepieces to give a mix of heights and interest in the room. And finally, don't forget to consider your top table. Choose a luxury arrangement that complements your centrepieces, this could be an arrangement at the centre of your table, or a full-length floral runner for that added pizzazz!
