With lockdowns and unsafe dining conditions, have you considered having an at-home, intimate, romantic date night? With Valentines Day just around the corner, we love the idea of treating your love to a special evening at home. How about ordering food from your favorite restaurant or caterer and set a romantic table including flowers and fun table top items?

Here is our inspiration for a modern, yet romantic dinner date table setting:

Unexpected Color Pairing

For your romantic date night we love the idea of unexpected color pairings like our teal and pink color palette. It’s fresh, fun, yet still very romantic.

Have you considered digging out the linens and fancy china for an at-home dinner together? From Valentine’s Day to special anniversaries or birthdays – we’d love to help you! Flora Nova Design can provide everything from a floral centerpiece to beautiful rental items such as linens, plates, and glasses (and don’t forget the candles!).

Blush Pink Flowers

The romantic centerpiece we created for this look contained roses in various shades of pink, pink carnations, and pink orchids. Paired with lots of pink taper candles, this was a striking tablescape which we would love to recreate for you.

Putting extra thought into the place setting, even if you get take out, can spell out love without using words. Whether it’s for a special someone or the whole family, having a romantic date night might be exactly what we need this year! The extra effort can really say “I love You!”. You may forget just for an evening that you’re still stuck at home.

We would be thrilled to be part of your special date night! Email us today at

Pampas Grass Winter Wedding: Carly & Oliver


Carly and Oliver’s formal New Years Eve wedding took place in the Garden Room at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. And what a gorgeous downtown Seattle venue they chose for their special day! For the ceremony we placed lucite pillars at different heights and added the centerpieces that would later be used for reception table centerpieces. We used both elevated and low compote arrangement styles to create an interesting and lush floral backdrop for the ceremony. The large vase arrangements were designed with hydrangea, roses, lots of greens, and of course, on-trend pampas grass for natural texture and interest.

New Year’s Eve Wedding Reception in White and Mauve

Large floral centerpieces filled with white hydrangea, roses, and greenery with pops of mauve took center stage for the reception – placed on round tables with neutral linens. We added lots of natural pampas grass for a slightly relaxed feel. Pampas grass weddings can often be ‘boho’ in nature. However we tried not to go too far in that direction for this more semi formal event. Keeping it timeless and elegant was our goal. Most importantly, to add a special New Years feel, a large holiday light chandelier hung over the dinner reception tables. As a result a cozy festive glow was achieved. By far the most eye catching element in the space. Perfect for a New Year’s Eve wedding!!

How Are You Decorating for the Holidays?

Have you started decorating for the holidays yet? Or are you overwhelmed by it all?

Today is December 1st and for me officially the start of decorating at home. At my house, I have been hanging lights above the fireplace and outside the main entrance door, and I placed a decorated wreath as centerpiece for my dining room table. Not much quite yet, but it’s starting to feel very festive. Much more decorations will follow in the coming days. This year seems especially important surrounding myself with pretty things.

But my favorite part is the dining room table. It’s where everything is happening: all meals of the day, crafting and sewing projects, playing games. So let’s talk about your holiday dinner table for a while – Flora Nova’s specialty!

Setting a Festive Dinner Table During the Holidays

Your dining room table is probably the centerpiece of your home. It certainly is for me, and I try to always have fresh flowers or seasonal decorations on it.

Whether it’s a fresh wreath, a fresh floral bouquet, or an arrangement containing seasonal elements and ornaments, please let us help you decorate for the holidays. And did you know that we can help beyond flowers and centerpieces? We can provide luxurious linens, chairs, candles, and specialty table top elements to make your intimate family dinner as festive as possible.

Here are just a few inspirations to get you in the mood:

A Dramatic Red Winter December Wedding: Meagan & Sonny at the Four Seasons Seattle

Bride with a red bouquet and full length veil makes a dramatic entrance to her winter ceremony lit by lots of candles lining the aisle | Flora Nova Design Seattle

Dramatic Winter Ballroom Wedding

Big drama was the hallmark of this red winter wedding which we brought to every detail of this special event. We loved this dramatic winter color palette of moody dark reds, burgundy, navy blue, accents of blush and loads of texture and greenery. For drama we added lucite and lots of glitzy gold, and as a result it made for an incredible dramatic evening. Which moreover felt cozy and intimate despite being in the beautiful large Four Seasons Hotel ballroom.

Unique Details Add Up To A Memorable Event

For this red winter wedding ceremony we used a bold navy blue aisle runner in place of a traditional white carpet. The full room draping in the same shade of navy created the perfect setting for their evening ceremony. Moreover we lined the aisle with lots of candles, placed next to gold chameleon chairs with red cushions. At the front of the aisle we placed four tall arrangements with long trailing greenery on lucite pillars and plenty of candles to brighten the December evening.

For Meagan and Sonny’s ballroom reception we used navy table linens paired with red and crimson patterned napkins. Gold rimmed charger plates, gold flatware, plenty of gold candles with a romantic glow completed the look. In addition we used a mix of low compote and tall centerpieces on gold stands. We used winter floral such as antique hydrangea, roses, amaranths, pepper berry, and amaryllis in rich shades of reds and blush. We then added lots of greenery and texture and to finish everything off we added a red spray rose to every napkin. As a result we created a romantic yet dramatic red winter wedding. What do you think?
