Center Your Table In Style

The autumn season is in full swing, and that means plenty of opportunities for seasonal entertaining in your home. The design experts at Marco Island Florist have some great tips for fall decorating and tablescapes that will make your fall gatherings everything you want.

  • Keep it relaxed by adding elements that are personalized and low-key or keep it a little less-than-perfect, allowing your guests to relax and enjoy the evening.
  • Don’t let the flowers stay at the center of the table. Add one bloom in a bud vase to each place setting. It will tie the entire look together and guests will love the extra-special touch just for them.
  • Try adding a bit of shimmer to your fall table for a glossy finish. A gold mesh runner or mirrored serving trays give off just enough shine to feel festive.

This month brings us the celebration of Sweetest Day, observed on the third Saturday of October each year. This philanthropic day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston in 1922 as a means of distributing a bit of happiness to the downtrodden during the Great Depression. Kingston, a candy company employee, gave candy and treats to orphans, shut-ins and others who had seemingly been forgotten. Today, we observe this day by bringing surprises to those in hospitals, shelters or nursing homes. The professionals at Marco Island Florist are happy to share our wide variety of floral arrangements, plants and gift baskets with you as we help you celebrate Sweetest Day this year.
