At the end of events done by On Reserve, I like to wrap up florals from the event and distribute them to the guests who have stayed till the end of the party. I tie them beautifully in a wrapping with a tag, thanking guests for joining us in the celebration. This can also be a great idea for a party favor, for who doesn’t love flowers!
