Step 1: Choose flowers Choose flowers that are hardy, and that match the color scheme of the wedding. Avoid flowers taller than 12 inches, as these are sight blockers. Tip Consider using colorful and waxy fruit or candles as an alternative to flowers. Step 2: Remove thorns Remove unwanted foliage and thorns from the flowers with the stem stripper. Cut the stems at an angle, 2 inches from the bottom. Step 3: Arrange flowers Hold four flowers of the same height and arrange them in a square to form the center. Then add flowers one at a time to create a dome. Tip Use floral foam to hold the arrangement in place if the vase is not transparent. Step 4: Bind the stems Bind the flowers together with floral tape 3 to 4 inches below the heads. Step 5: Trim the stems Hold the flowers up to the vase to see how much the stems need to be trimmed. Trim them at an angle. Step 6: Fill vase Fill the vase 1 or 2 inches from top with water. Then place the flowers in the vase. Step 7: Maintain the centerpieces Store the centerpieces in a cool room and spritz them with water to keep them fresh. Did You Know? According to 2008 census data, 76 percent of Americans who have been married have married only once.
