Annuals might be the way to go. What about sweetpeas? Lots of different colours, lots of scent. Or sunflowers. What plants do you have in your garden which would act as a green foil to the flowers? Or as you live in Cornwall, plants like sea holly, thrift, some lady's mantle. I did table decorations for my wedding using the greenery from my garden and added freesia, ladys mantle and some gold coloured dried flowers to it. My bouquet was a bunch of white roses surrounded by white freesias and the bridesmaids was in red, the same flowers. You could get these from M&S or Tesco or another supermarket and get a nice length of ribbon from a habadashery to tie them (after using florists tape which you can get from all florists).
