Soft lighting, sheer organza, and pale hues give a romantic, dreamy quality to daytime receptions.

Charming "boxes" of miniature spray- and blue-moon roses, hydrangeas, dahlias, farida carnations, and delphiniums pile up daintily in the room. These petal presents range in height from just 4 to 11 inches (have your florist anchor blooms in oasis foam and tie with wired ribbons and China grass); the smaller the flower head, the neater the edge of the "box."
