Wednesdays with Amy–Submerged Flowers–Savannah Event Designer–Harvey Designs–Savannah, GA

Submerged flowers have been a staple of contemporary designs for the last few years.   There are a multitude of flowers that work well submerged such as calla lilies, orchids, tulips, anthuriums and protea.   When the flowers are submerged, the water magnifies the bloom and creates a larger impact with fewer flowers.  Add submerged flowers  to a tall vase, vertically or in a circular pattern, to use as a pedestal for a large floral arrangement.

Add interest to a long table or ledge by choosing several flowers and different styles of vases.  Submerge the flowers in different ways, perhaps even inverted, and add floating candles.  Monstera leaves, variegated ginger leaves and manzanita branches work well to add different shapes and texture.  The persimmon manzanita branches even look like coral under water.  Incorporate shells, sea glass, pebbles, marbles, or fruit to add interest to the bottom of your vase.

Try these simple, yet elegant designs for your next dinner party.  Raid the cabinets, be creative and have fun.

Thanks for reading and have an inspiring Wednesday.  Remember to follow us on twitter and friend us on facebook.
