Here is a cute idea for a floral favor at a shower, wedding, corporate event . . . a ‘basket’ made of an aspidistra leaf. So cute . . . this technique was demonstrated at a WUMFA workshop by Doug Jaeger, Certified Florist. All kinds of possibilities exist …
Love this … Bridal shower, wedding, baby shower ?
These centerpieces are ready for a September wedding shower. The bride is incorporating calla lilies in a deep purple theme for the late fall wedding. These arrangements are made of artificial callas and filler flowers that were ‘upcycled’ from another event.
Hydrangeas, sedum and Russian sage combine for an easy and natural bouquet. The vase is a chalk painted glass jar accented with a multi-strand ribbon.
Arrangements made with flowers purchased at the local farmers’ markets are colorful and inexpensive. I buy bouquets and take them apart to rearrange. Sometimes I ask for a handful of one kind of flowers like the Bells of Ireland shown here paired with Queen Anne’s lace from the ‘field.’ A few dollars worth of flowers can go along way.
Dish gardens containing succulents are easy to care for . . . dogs add personality . . . no fairy gardens here!
Sunflowers, cat tails, and earth tone accents arranged for a table top or buffet . . . The bow is wired chenille.
Many different colors are available … Long lasting too. Gerbera daisies are a reliable choice for centerpieces that are simple yet make a dramatic statement.
This centerpiece adds some glitter and light with a decorated container and a purple LED submersible light. We used Oasis foam inserted in a plastic cup which is in turn inserted in the glass bubble jar.
