It is well known that the ancient Romans used leaves and branches as centrepieces. Since then, tables around the world have seen different plants, foods and materials used as decorative displays.
In modern times, flowers and fruit are the most popular items used in centrepieces with some types and breeds used more than others. Popular centrepiece flowers include roses, hydrangeas, tulips and gerberas.
