Serve Up A Party Better Than Anna Kournikova Serves A Ball

Anna Kournikova may be able to serve up a tennis ball, but can 
she throw a party that keeps people talking and waiting for the 
next one? Well, maybe, especially if she's adding special touches 
to her parties using flowers.

Flowers are a simple and inexpensive way to make your parties 
beautiful, exciting, and the talk of your neighborhood. Of course 
there are the traditional ways to use flowers, like arrangements 
in vases and baskets or floral centerpieces, but there are also 
endless possibilities for other uses. Your florist can help you 
create any of the following floral party decorations:

* Punch up your punch: An ice ring is always lovely in a punch 
bowl, but imagine how much better it will be if there are 
brightly colored blooms frozen into it. Make certain you use 
washed, edible flowers; your florist can help you choose them.

* Make your napkin rings into party favors: You can either ask 
your florist to make napkin rings from flowers, or you can buy a 
few extra flowers to match your center pieces and tuck them into 
folded napkins or napkin rings. You'll want to make certain you 
keep the flowers in some water until just before your guests 
arrive. You should also consult your florist to determine which 
blooms will work the best.

* Make candles even brighter: Set your votive holders on a bed of 
petals. If you're using candlesticks, tie ribbons around them and 
tuck in a few blooms. Or, place large blooms in bowls with 
floating candles.

* Pretty place cards: Your place cards can double as party 
favors. Place a small vase at each setting with a single bloom in 
it. Attach the place card to the vase using a ribbon, glue it 
directly to the vase, or tuck the card into the blossom.

To make certain your flower decorations are as fresh and 
beautiful as possible, ask to have them delivered the day of the 
party. If they must be delivered the day before, store them in a 
cool place-but not one that will reach below 35 degrees. Avoid 
drafts and direct sunlight. Make sure your flowers are not stored 
near fruit. Fruit emits ethylene gas, which can make your flowers 
wilt. Mist the flowers before storing them and cover them lightly 
with a thin piece of plastic. A bag from your dry cleaner will 
work perfectly for this purpose.

Your florist can be a real asset in planning your party. Make 
sure you talk to him or her about what the occasion is and the 
atmosphere you're going for. Your florist is certain to be full 
of excellent ideas like the ones above, and may even have a few
