Your Table + A Fall Centerpiece = Win

By beneva on October 28, 2018 in Fall Flowers, Flowers. 0 Comments

A formal tablescape is the perfect addition to any fall home this season as we prepare to gather friends and family together all season long. Festive decor and a lovely table are easily created with the help of the design experts at Beneva Flowers. Some tips we recommend: Play with color. Use a monochromatic base for your dinnerware, tablecloth, floral designs and candlesticks. Allow a few choice accents to pop with a color contrast (think of an all-burgundy table with white mini-pumpkins scattered here and there). Play with metals. In the right proportions, opposite metallics actually work nicely with one another. Choose one style for formal candlesticks and another for flatware or floral containers. Play with texture. Add natural accents like pine cones, hypericum berries, or gourds to your tablescape to keep the entire look visually intriguing. Read More about Your Table + A Fall Centerpiece = Win

Gracious Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

By beneva on November 10, 2017 in Fall Flowers, Thanksgiving. 0 Comments

We at Beneva Flowers love Thanksgiving for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the flowers. As we gather around our tables to feast and give thanks, we're welcomed by the scent of delicious food, the richly-textured table linens, the warm glow from candles. There's chatter among family and friends, and the clink of china and silverware as we fill our plates with helping after helping of the season's best comfort food. And in the middle of all that, there's the floral centerpiece, which, when done well, really captures the atmosphere. Read More about Gracious Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

Mums, Fall’s Biggest Floral

By beneva on October 20, 2017 in Fall Flowers. 0 Comments

Mum's the word this Fall, as the season's biggest floral makes its highly anticipated debut. Since 3,500 years ago in China, mums have been celebrated for their particular beauty (as well as their healing properties!) and lauded as the "golden flower." Today, we find them cheering up gardens and doorsteps in planters, pots or set right into a waiting garden bed, a signal that Fall is here. At Beneva Flowers & Plantscapes, we're just as devoted to November's sunny bloom. Read More about Mums, Fall’s Biggest Floral

Floral Designs in Fall Colors

By beneva on September 13, 2017 in Fall Flowers. 0 Comments

Let's face it, in Sarasota we don't really experience fall the way the rest of the country may. Our change of colors is often from one shade of green to a different shade of green. Still, we love to celebrate the spirit and essence of autumn, with seasonal flowers in fall colors to infuse your home with cozy ambiance. If you are looking for a simple design that makes a stunning impression, look no further than the Simply Striking Sunflower Bowl. An elegant design of graceful calla lilies, bear grass and a classic sunflower makes for the perfect fall accent piece for your home - or a great gift! Read More about Floral Designs in Fall Colors
