Summer 2013 Décor Trends: Combining Decorative Lanterns with Floral Art
Stock up on pre-filled lanterns at Briarcliff Manor’s Holbrook Cottage, or create your own rustic series of pieces with different sized lanterns, blooms, and candles for a collected aesthetic.
Lanterns aren’t just for candles anymore—they also make an attractive alternative to run-of-the-mill containers like vases for flowers. “A major trend in centerpieces is tablescapes that integrate decorative items with floral pieces,” says Sue Taub, co-owner of Holbrook Cottage in Briarcliff Manor. “We love a lantern filled with gorgeous blooms spilling out onto the table, surrounded by votive candles. Or combine different-sized lanterns—some with candles, some with florals—running down the length of a table.” The shop offers lanterns pre-filled with custom-designed fresh or “everlasting” flowers.
