There is no such thing as too many flowers when it comes to this stunning style! By choosing soft base colours of blush pink and gold for the tablecloths, centrepieces and chairs, it will allow the flowers to be the real star of the show. Don't be afraid to be bolder in your colour choices for the flowers - adding some deep pinks and bright violet will create a real 'wow' factor for your engagement party!
