This first table is one that is brimming with flowers, practically creating a floral waterfall that flows down the edge.
Whether it is red, yellow or blue flowers, you can deck this out in whatever way you like. As you can see, this is a standalone table in a circular shape.
If you have a floral design on your cake, then you can blend in real-life flowers with the floral design on the cake.
