English Garden DIY Wedding Centerpiece

diy wedding reception centerpiece english garden wedding flowers

via InStyle, April 2012

Inspiration: Faded floral wallpapers, glistening metallic details, high-tech brocades (from Christopher Kane's spring 2012 runway show).

The Mix: Assorted bright ranunculus, anemones, Yves Piaget garden roses, and Dusty Miller foliage, beautifully arranged in a pewter gray pitcher.

Step-by-Step DIY:
1. To establish the basic shape of the centerpiece, start by dropping vines and the Dusty Miller foilage into the vase.
2. Begin adding your larger flowers (ranunculus, anemones, garden roses) and crisscross stems at an angle to keep your blooms locked in place, and to avoid these delicate flower types from being crushed.
3. Now it's time for the smaller blossoms! Add tiny blue tweedia and orange asclepiad or andromeda to your centerpiece, while making sure to disperse the colors throughout the arrangement.

Expert Tips:

  • Turning the vase as you add each bloom will allow you to eye the centerpiece-in-progress to determine if the colors in the arrangement are evenly balanced.
  • Anemone alternatives? Poppies or Cosmos!

Isn't this centerpiece charming, memorable and perfect for a romantic garden wedding? We love it!
