MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED:
- A variety of DAVE’S silk flowers and leaves of your choice
- Artificial moss
- Ribbon (we used wire-edged pink ribbon)
- U pins
- Floral foam block
- Decorative plate
- Optional: Fancy dessert stand
Step 1: Start by trimming the larger flowers so that the stems are about 2 inches in length. You might choose to have only one large flower in the center, or a few evenly-spaced throughout the centerpiece. For this tutorial, we will use roses as our large flowers.
Step 2: Use U-pins to secure moss and rose(s) to the foam block.
Step 3: Cut off lengths of your smaller flowers (baby’s breath, lilacs, buds, leaves, etc.) that are roughly the same as your roses. These will be your filler pieces.
Step 4: Begin to secure your filler flowers to the foam block with U-pins, adding more moss as you go along. Add these and any other embellishments you like until your centerpiece looks complete.
*Optional: *Optional: If you have a serving platter with an arch or other embellishment, take a length of your wired ribbon and tie into a bow, leaving 2 long tails on either side. Tie or glue your bow to the top of the arch or decoration, then wrap the tails of ribbon around it working downwards. Use a hot glue gun to glue down the ribbon every few inches or so to secure it in place.
Voila! You have your very own hand-crafted wedding centerpiece.
