flowersDetermining how and if guests will be seated is an important step in planning your party decorations. Be sure to avoid inviting more guests than your table or location can comfortably handle.

  • How many guests will be attending your party?
  • How many guests will your current dining table seat comfortably?
  • Is there enough extra space in the room for guests be able to move comfortably to socialize?
  • Does it make more sense to seat your guests at several smaller tables rather than one large table?
  • Is there enough space for drink or hors d'oeuvre stations?
  • Can you do a buffet in place of a seated affair?
  • Do you have an outdoor living area such as a patio that could be utilized, weather permitting?

Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
