I think violas would be good as they are reliable flowerers and flower for a long period. You can put them in pretty pots on the tables. There are lots of different colours.
In 2012 I received my delivery of plug plants in late September, I potted them on then planted them into outside pots and troughs when I replaced the summer bedding late October. You could buy them in a GC in Spring if you wanted to or now. These are mine from 7th April having been outside and had a lot of snow in March. The sun came out from late March and they grew really well.
They went on to grow much bigger in May.
