Trend Alert: Green Centerpieces

Put your greens front and center on the table.

By |

All-greenery centerpieces are the thing: so elegant, so on trend, so easy. Jil Schlisner, owner of Park Hill’s Moss Pink Flora & Botanicals, shows us how to pull together three centerpieces just in time for your next late-summer soiree. “Summer is the perfect time to try out this trend, as it conveys that effortless feeling,” she says. “Whether you pick the greens from your backyard, alley bushes, or a local florist, this style provides countless nuances of color and texture—a graceful, thriving look.”

How To Design An All-Greenery Centerpiece
“The key is to create abundance in either the texture or volume of material. Select complementary but different textures, paying attention to subtle color variations, and create balance with lifting and trailing elements.” —Jil Schlisner, Moss Pink Flora & Botanicals
