romantic floral centerpiece

This romantic floral centerpiece will make your wedding guests feel as if they’re visiting a fairy tale! We’ll walk you through our simple steps to make these lovely arrangements, full of gorgeous white and pink peonies, sweet hops and lovely eucalyptus leaves.
Step 1
Cut a strip of floral foam that’ll fit inside your glass container. Make sure there’s a gap between the foam and the glass on all sides and that the foam is a bit lower than the top of the container. Use a dab of hot glue on the foam’s bottom to hold it in place inside the container. 
Step 2
Fill the gap between the foam and the container on all four sides by pushing in pieces of moss. Now, only the moss is visible through the glass, but you can still push your floral elements into the foam.

TIP: A pencil isthe perfect tool for pushing the moss down between the foam and the glass.
Step 3
Use your floral cutter to snip off the wire holding each floral bundle together. Now you can work with the individual stems and blossoms. 
Step 4
Push the individual peony stems into the floral foam, varying their heights as you go. Bend each stem slightly, so that the flowers spill naturally over the top lip of the glass container. 
Step 5
Next, cut sections of hops and add these blossoms to the arrangement, too.

TIP: As you add your flowers to the arrangement, mix larger blooms with small buds and alternate cream-colored flowers with others in a variety of pink shades.
Step 6
Cut long sections of the eucalyptus stem and insert the pieces into thefoam,so that they extend outwards on either side of the arrangement. Use smaller pieces to fill in any spaces between flowers.

TIP: Adding pieces of eucalyptus that extend out from the center will help to make your arrangement look longer than it is high.
Step 7
Once you think you’re finished adding flowers, take a photo of the arrangement with your phone to see if adjustments need to be made. Tweak your flowers a bit more if you need to. Then, add a little more moss and hot glue any of the floral pieces that feel like they might be a bit loose. Absolutely gorgeous!
