So, let’s begin with the first part: materials, here’s what you’ll need:
Iron cylinder vase
Silver Dollar Eucalyptus (5-10 stems)
White Hydrangea (4-5 stems)
Baby Blue Eucalyptus (3 stems)
7 SIMPLE STEPS TO FOLLOW:
- Prep your flowers first, by removing any thorns and any sad looking petals or foliage.
- Fill the iron cylinder vase insert about half way with water.
- Start to build the centerpiece by layering three to five pieces of Silver dollar eucalyptus around the edges, slightly bending the pieces for a dripping effect.
- Trim four to five Hydrangea stems where the bottom of the stem will sit in the water
- Trim two spray baby blue eucalyptus stems so that they are slightly taller than the hydrangea and fill in any remaining gaps with each stem. Rearrange or add additional Eucalyptus leaves
- Add more water to make sure all stems can remain hydrated
- Finally, select one stem silver dollar eucalyptus on the dish. It can highlight your rustic & modern wedding.
NOTE: Hydrangeas are notoriously thirsty flowers, so you want to give them as much water as possible to prevent wilting. If you’re getting married outside in the summer heat, they might not last long. We recommend doing a test run in a similar climate to see how they fare.
