A colorful place setting perks up a plain tablecloth — but you don’t have to go to the store for new dishes and linens. Instead, let a handful of blooms and a bright napkin brighten up basic white plates. To create this thoughtful touch, simply roll a dinner nap- kin into a cone shape and wrap the bottom with a doily or lace fabric scrap. Secure with a pretty ribbon, then fill the opening with a trio of fresh flowers and snippets of baby’s breath (or your favorite floral filler). Rest one cone atop each plate.

Inexpensive mugs from the dollar store make the perfect easy-to-hold vessel for a blooming favor they’ll enjoy long after the party. Gather a few blooms into a bouquet, tie with ribbon or raffia, and pop into a mug. Finish with a message of love written on a scrapbook paper square and taped to a skewer.
