When you plan to decorate your table and use teapots as vases, you need to make sure that they blend harmoniously with the overall style of the decor.

Colorful polka dot teapots will bring a smile to everyone’s face. Metal teapots add vintage glam and chic to the table decor, so you have different options to choose from that will blend with the overall decoration idea.

What flowers can you use for your teapot centerpieces?
There are no limits or restrictions for creativity and fantasy. You can use any flowers – seasonal, field flowers, you can combine them and add beads, sequins or other decorations suitable for the theme and style. Carnations, chrysanthemums, hydrangea, roses, alstroemeria, eustoma, spring flowers like daffodils or tulips, roses, the list is endless.
For a more refined table setting with flowers, try to pick flowers to match the candlesticks, for example, delicate orange roses and glass candlesticks on a white tablecloth and white dishes will look amazing. Small delicate pink roses do not need a selection of color combinations and are suitable for almost any table and any style. Bright red and burgundy roses usually attract all the attention so it is better to leave the general background neutral – white or cream shades will be perfect.
If your flowers are not bright enough and get lost on the background of festive dishes, use contrasting colors to highlight them. For example, yellow flowers will become brighter on a violet background, orange – on blue, pale pink – on green. Use colored napkins, draperies, candle holders to create a contrasting background around the bouquet.
