Romance is thinking about your significant other, when you are supposed to be thinking about something else. – Nicholas Sparks
What better way to create an air of romance that to spell out LOVE! Use simple tin pails and a stencil kit from your craft store to create these sweet containers for your flowers. Choose old fashioned beauties such as these white hydrangeas to complement the look.
Add some romance with special touches to embellish your floral displays. Try adding pearls, mercury glass vases, or touches of gold or silver to give your tables a gorgeous old world charm. You could also add some “bling” and sparkle using glass beads, rhinestones or faux diamonds and gluing them to your vases.

Candlelight is always super romantic! Be sure to include lots of candles of all sizes in your decorating plans. Placing mirrors under your centrepieces will boost the romantic atmosphere even more as the candlelight is reflected and adds a beautiful ambiance to your venue.
Tall and Lush
Create some tall arrangements that are full and lush and this will help get romance flowing. Believe it or not this is not an impossible DIY task! Check out this helpful BunchesDirect video for tips on how to make your own tall arrangements for either church or reception!
Try vases of clear glass, china, containers that are tall and elegantly footed, or traditional urn-shaped containers to add some romantic charm to your tables and venue.

Just about any color palette can be used to create romantic ambiance. Try red for a more passionate and dramatic look, or go with soft old world shades of pink, peach, cream and white. Purple can also be used very effectively in romantic flower designs.
