I only purchased 1 bunch of flowers. I split them up and used them through out my party. I wish I would have had more, but I make the most with what I have! Each table setting is a tad different. The variety of different cups makes for fun conversation and helps you decide where you want to sit. (you tend to choose your favorite tea cup) I also like to do a buffet. This way people can get up and move around. Join in on different conversations.
