Alstromeria is my accent flower for this fall pumpkin centerpiece. Note the long lateral stems cluster on the top of this single stalk.
I actually cut each stem off to use separately in the flower design. Not all colors of the Peruvian Lily have these nice long stems, but I'm going to take advantage of it for this design.
Gently work the stems into the foam, taking care not to crush the stems during insertion. Put your fingers close to the foam and take care in pushing the stems and little at a time.
I take advantage of the nature curve of the flowers, just as I did with the greenery.
Insert the flowers randomly around all sides of the flower design.
