colorful floral centerpiece

This colorful floral centerpiece sings, “Let’s celebrate!” Its vibrant, cheery florals and super-cool succulents can’t help but brighten up any wedding reception. Let us show you how to make it – just take a look at our instructions below!
Step 1
Use your foam cutting tool to cut a floral brick into pieces that’ll fit inside the clay pot. Fill the pot with foam pieces from its base up to just underneath the top lip of the pot. 
Step 2
Begin by forming a cluster of succulents to create a focal point within your arrangement. Trim the succulents’ stems with a floral cutter, then push the remaining stems into the foam until they feel secure. 
Step 3
Use the cutter to cut the palm branches from the main stem. Push the individual branches into the foam at an angle, so that the palm leaves drape over the side of the pot. Gently bend the palm branches to give them a natural downward curve. 
Step 4
Trim down the hydrangea’s stem and insert it into the foam that will become the back of the arrangement. This will help to fill the space behind your focal point. 
Step 5
Next, fill in the gaps between your flowers and greenery with roses, small wildflowers and additional greenery. Beautiful!

TIP: This arrangement is meant to feel loose and organic, so cut your flower and greenery stems at varying heights. Then you can bend and drape the longer stems to create a natural, less manicured effect.
