I wanted to bring in more gold accents, so I added detail to the leaves of the roses. To create this same effect, use a gold pen to draw a line down the center of each leaf, and several lines down both sides.
I love that the stems and leaves of the west elm roses have a wire base, because it makes them so easy to work with! Here a couple of different ways in which the roses could be incorporated into the individual place settings.
Name Cards. Use a gold pen to write your guest’s name on the leaf, and curl the stem so the rose stands on the plate.
Napkin Rings. I rolled each napkin and coiled the rose stem around it, shaping the leaf so it curves nicely over the top.
