Dress it Up with Paper
To get a classic yet modern centerpiece try a bundle of hydrangea in a square vase. To incorporate your color scheme use scrapbook paper. Add an extra glow by placing votives around the arrangement.
Tulips can be difficult to arrange when stems are left long, since stems tend to bend and droop. Tulips cut shorter, like these, can be arranged tightly enough to hold each other more upright.
Mixed flowers have been arranged in clusters for this unique centerpiece. Peach roses, hydrangea, zinnias, and yellow orchids have a casual look that would be appealing for a summer wedding.
Vase arrangements are easy to create. Simply fill a vase three-quarters full of water, arrange the bouquet in your hand, and cut the stems to the desired length before inserting into the vase. For a centerpiece, make sure to choose low vases and insert so the lower flowers sit at or below the vase's rim.
Silver julep cups like this one are a popular way to arrange small bouquets. You might place three to five of these around a tall candelabra, or space several down the length of a rectangular table. Cut some of the blooms short enough so they sit on the lip of the vase and insert a few stems of frothy filler flowers for interest.
Add interest to a centerpiece by using low, medium, and high elements. These clear vases are filled with icy-looking gel beads that hold water and make flower arranging easy.
Vase Within a Vase
An inexpensive clear fishbowl vase was the start of this colorful centerpiece. White candies hold a second, smaller vase in place. The narrow interior vase holds a few inches of water and a bundle of flowers tied with a ribbon. More individual blooms are set in bud vases around the centerpiece.
Casual settings often play host to informal afternoon weddings. This centerpiece adds a bit of country flair with a tin container and arrangement of white mums, carnations, and daisies -- an budget-friendly, yet festive, way to celebrate.
Keep it simple by selecting a stunning container and filling it with a few stems of hydrangea. Our paper basket was created to cover an inexpensive cylinder vase that gives it weight and holds the flowers and water.
