Floral designer Kappi Hamilton whipped up an arrangement that saves you party-planning time: It serves first as a colorful centerpiece for your dinner table, then as a fresh favor for your guests.
What You'll Need:
Gather stems of one variety of bloom, and then add three aspidistra leaves to surround flowers on all sides. Fold down top of each leaf toward stems.
Tie the arrangement together with twine. Repeat until you have five or six bouquets.
Using a florist knife, cut your bouquets to a height best suited for your container. Personalize notes on the gift tags or simply write "Thank you for coming." Tie one onto each bouquet, and tuck up inside the leaves so the tags won't get wet.
Arrange the bouquets in a water-filled container and place as your centerpiece on the dinner table. Before guests leave, hand each one a bouquet to enjoy at home.
