How to Make a Reception Ceterpiece? - as part of the Wedding series by GeoBeats.
We are going to make a simple centerpiece here in a vase and I put a bunch of flowers that I am going to use on the bench here by variety, and then I am going to make the arrangement in the vase.
One of the things that you really need to pay attention to is that no foliage can be in the water because it creates bacteria. So you just start putting the flowers at an angle in the vase, and it is pretty important to do that to make the bouquet look nice.
You just start adding the flowers. You can use all the flowers of one variety at once or you can mix and match, whichever way you want to do it. So but you always want to have the flowers directed to the opposite side of the vase.
It is not important to have a particular number of the same type of flower. You can just totally do that to use however many stems of each color and of each variety that you want.
When you make centerpieces you always want to pay attention to not make them too high so that it does not interfere with guests talking into one another.
