A Christmas Centerpiece Tutorial
(Centerpiece Wednesday linky party will be back next week)
Here is a fun Centerpice tutorial for you.....My cute friend Ann took me to a wholesale florist yesterday and then back to her house where she taught me how to make this fun centerpiece! Ann is very talented and has done many weddings so it was a real treat for me to learn from her.
We started with these pretty mercury vases.
Here is the collection of some of the flowers and greens we purchased. Red tulips, mini carnations, pepper berries and some Fever Few (a pretty little white flower).
This one is already starting to take on a shape with only 3 stems of peppery berry in it.
Adding in a few mini carnations and more pepper berries.
We added in mini carnations at different heights followed by the pretty white Fever Few. Tip 6- Make sure when making a centerpiece you continually turn the vase around as you work on it so you don't end up with only one pretty side. I tend to do forget that and usually only one side looks the best...sorry for those that have to look at the back LOL. Next we tucked in those cool silver woody coral looking branches with little nubs that look like mini acorns. (Don't know the name of this if you can't tell LOL)
I am so grateful for my friend Ann who was so willing to share her talents with me, it was so fun to hang out with you and learn all these techniques and tips. I'm excited to try my hand at this again and again!!
Merry Merry Christmas everyone!
Centerpiece Wednesday will resume next week!
