Ruled by the headstrong and determined Ram, Aries energy can be stubborn and wilful. It causes them to dig in their heels, stand their ground and refuse to be pushed around.
Aries are bold, fiery, and attention-grabbing, and they require a tangle of explosive blooms to match. To symbolize this energetic sign, this place setting incorporates festival bush, bronze Amaranthus, scabiosa, banksia, roses, and ranunculus.
2. Taurus : The Bull
The persistent provider of the horoscope family, Taurus energy helps us seek security, enjoy earthly pleasures and get the job done. Ruled by the persistent and plodding Bull, Taurus energy has two speeds.

They will patiently assess whether something is worth the investment of time and resources. Then if the green light flashes, it’s all systems go!
Taurus loves beautiful things, but also likes being grounded. To honour those inclinations, this place setting mixes softer, romantic florals with textural pods and grasses, which lend an earthiness to the arrangement. Garden roses (including Distant Drums and Cappuccino) are incorporated along with sahara spray roses, lisianthus, sumac, millet, and protea pods.

Virgo helps us to maintain a sense of efficiency and conduct in our physical realities, and can be very supportive as it’s not focused on shining in the limelight.
Virgos tend to be overly analytical and get caught up in the details, but they are also huge lovers of nature. This sentiment is represented by using many small, detailed, earthy foliages, including hellecho, sea star fern, begonia, pieris buds, hellebore, and vines, along with a mix of assorted earth-toned roses.

The Pisces- born soul is over the moon (well, under it precisely). The dreamer and healer of the horoscope family, Pisces energy awakens compassion, imagination and artistry, uniting us as one.

This table setting is a representation of everything that Piscean can identify with.
