Floating Arrangements

Suspended floral arrangements don't need to drape closely to your table decor to make a statement. The candles lining this wedding table add a gorgeous glow, but the overgrown greenery and lush flowers hanging directly above bring a garden vibe to this tent reception.

Lush Greenery

These hanging greenery hoops prove a nonfloral centerpiece can be just as pretty as a classic rose arrangement. Decorated with fern leaves and vines, these hanging centerpieces bring a little vibrancy to a minimalist tablescape. The tulip accents are especially fitting for a spring wedding.

Refined Flowers

If you like idea of a garden suspended over your table, but you don't want it to look too overgrown, go with a more polished design. While these hanging flowers would fit right in at a bohemian chic wedding, their synonymous style accommodates a more traditional tablescape.

Elegant Script

Calligraphy signs are all the rave for ceremony decor, so why not add them to a hanging centerpiece at the reception? The flower boxes above this wedding table complement the low centerpieces well on their own. But a simple phrase written in elegant script adds a more personal detail to this charming rustic event.
