DIY Flower Centerpieces for Under $20
Posted on 25 July 2016
Flower centerpieces are far more affordable when you get creative and DIY. For any lunch, dinner, coffee, or special event you host, flowers will add the extra touch to your decorations. Here are three tips for fun and easy centerpieces with some simple materials- all for well under $20! In most cases you can recycle materials to create unique combinations each time.
Big blossoms, such as lilies, hydrangeas, roses, and peonies look gorgeous displayed in a simple mason jar for this rustic chic look. Try also using classic china such as a large teapot for one-of-a-kind vintage inspired settings. Mason jars can be quickly dressed up and personalized with ribbon. Try a mix of disbud cremons and roses.
Floating flower arrangements are my go-to centerpieces when I am short on time and creative energy, but I always get several compliments for its elegant simplicity. Mix clear glass bowls for larger tables. All you need to do is cut the flower one centimeter below the receptacle or base of the flower. I recommend using roses, spider mums, or carnations.
The classic cylindrical vase is one of the most under rated vases on the market. With a little bit of ribbon and a little creativity these vases become the statement piece of any event. You can play around with a number of materials for filling the bottom of the vase and making it entirely your own design. Some good filler materials include:
- White pebbles- great for a summer time or beach inspired wedding.
- Black pebbles- perfect for an earth-toned color pallet.
- Decorative plastic pearls- great for classic weddings and baby showers.
- Small fruit such as key limes or kumquats- for events that are bursting with colors.
