Here is a DIY wedding centerpiece, from Weddingstar:
When the idea for this post came up, truth be told, I panicked a little. Although I love flowers (I mean, what girl doesn’t?!) and have pulled together many arrangements in my day, I always advise (where budget allows) tonever DIY your florals. But let’s face it, when budgets are factored in not everyone has the luxury of working with a floral designer. So to all you ladies feeling brave and looking to stretch your dollar without compromising an ounce of pretty, this blog’s for you!
- good pair of shears
- floral foam (to fit whatever vase you decide to use)
- flowers, in order of appearance: lisianthus, astilbe, queen anne’s lace, spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and sedum
- main centerpiece vase / vessel (i recommend something with a bit of height to it)
- lace patterned votive holders, small and large (to act as vases)
- vintage inspired vintage candle holder
The Step by Step
Step 1: saturate your floral foam with water and place into your vase. Begin to build your floral arrangement creating a starting point for your two front facing corners. Make one over flowing with eucalyptus and the other tighter to the center with queen anne’s lace.
Step 2: continue to build your arrangement by adding another overflow on the opposite corner to the original and begin to fill out your middle with a blend of sedum and lisianthus.
Step 3: continue to fill in your arrangement, adding in astilbe. Start to concentrate on your arrangement as a whole, paying attention to all angles.
Step 4: add in spray roses. as you work on filling your arrangement make sure to fill all gaps and keep a mix of flowers throughout the whole.
The End Result
You could stop right here but for a fuller table arrangement (and some added decor), finish off the look with a couple of votive holders filled with a few floral stems, as well as some candlelight.
