Event Planner Chooses Just Add Ice Orchids as Party Centerpiece

January 24, 2012

Noted Cleveland, Ohio wedding and event planner Stephen Tokar recommended using Just Add Ice Orchids when you need to quickly pull together decorations for an elegant event. Showcased on a WKYC Cleveland television segment featuring last-minute decorating tips for New Year’s Eve parties, Tokar noted that Just Add Ice Orchids are his first choice for “instant” event décor. The stunning beauty and wide color range of Just Add Ice Orchids allows them to be brought home and immediately placed on the table without additional adornment, creating an instant centerpiece that will win you rave reviews from your guests.

Tokar said he uses floral centerpieces at events to draw attention to the table and the food. When planning weddings, Tokar often uses flowers and a single, strong color to create a cohesive theme. Glossy black vases are used to create a rich, handsome anchor for the thematic color with a touch of gold or silver adding a bit of sparkle to the finished creation. To ensure perfect color matching, Tokar uses spray paint to color candles, decorative branches, floral containers and glass bowls.

To emphasize how easy it is to create event centerpieces that are quick, easy, affordable and elegant, Tokar combined a little creativity with a few found objects and items purchased during a single trip to a local hardware store, including the Just Add Ice Orchids featured in his floral creations. He said it took him about an hour to create the three stunning floral centerpieces demonstrated during the program, any of which could easily be used to dress up a wedding or special event.
