Submerging flowers in clear, cylinder vases has become the latest rage. Coil silver decorative wire around a white orchid and slide carefully down into a vase. Add water slowly. The wire will help anchor the flower and keep it from floating to the top of the centerpiece.
Novel centerpiece ideas truly get creative. These cute florals can be made large or small. Using either blocks or bricks of Oasis florist foam, cut a perfect square. You can also use cages if you prefer - just cut off the handles and you'll have a perfect tray already built in. Float soak the foam and set on a waterproof plate (be sure it is deep enough to hold some water overflow). Fill in completely with short stemmed flowers. Tie a sheer bow around your "flower package". You can add pearl headed pins into the center of each flower head for an extra decorative touch.
For this centerpiece take a clear, cylinder vase and put a small amount of colored Rainbow foam in the bottom. Carefully add water and let settle. Drop in a small, hand tied bouquet. Using steel grass (which is a very round, stiff grass variety), create a "dome" over your flower bouquet.
I love these next centerpiece ideas. Using a small or large
, cut off the plastic hanging handle. Green in with assorted greens. Pictured is eryngium, ivy, bear grass and seeded euclyptus. Tuck in a few flowers, such as roses, delphinium or other flowers. Create some long trailing vines for interest. This centerpiece would look beautiful with the addition of a few Floralytes. You just pull the tab, tuck it into the arrangement and the light glows for 36 to 48 hours!
Centerpieces don't always have to be in a vase. Low flat trays are so chic filled with colored Rainbow powder and filled with short stemmed flowers. Cluster groups of the same flowers together for a more garden-style interest. This design has asters, freesia, dahlias, trachelium, lavender roses, and green button pomps. Note the unique addition of steel grass threaded through small flower blossoms and bent over the arrangement.
