Once again, I snapped some pictures. I liked the vases they had at the tables. Since they were such large tables, they paired two vases with different flowers, but kept them linked by having some long leaves bent into shapes and with the flowers poking through. Ironically, the green, white, and black color scheme was the same as at the charity event earlier in the week and the green flowers in the arrangement were the "live" version of the artificial flowers that I had learned to shape for those other decorations. A black ribbon was tied around the two vases with a card acknowledging the donor. Participants at the conference got to take these vases home. I found several black ribbons left on the tables and now I'm working on some ideas for using them. I like this idea of not wasting anything! If you intend to do a floral arrangement like this, be aware that the leaves start to brown soon after being cut or punched through, so don't use it if you are making them ahead of time.
