For a spring luncheon, I cut a bunch of ferns and placed them down the table. Then I wrapped ceramic pots with a fern frond and tied raffia around them and put potted primroses, ranunculas, and miniature daffodils (so I could replant them all after the party). I put cut daffodils in little vases and scattered them down the center of the table. I wrapped the napkins with a single daffodil tied with raffia and placed a little bag of chocolates at each place setting. You could use the same idea to decorate a buffet area for a party.
