How to Create a Romantic Centerpiece
A few weeks ago my neighbor asked me to help her create some romantic centerpieces for a wedding shower she was throwing. The color scheme for the shower was pale pink, cream and gold, and I love our final product! Doesn’t it just look so bridal?
Floral Buying Guide:
So to recreate these arrangements, I used:
- Two white hydrangeas – $4
- Six pink roses – $3.50
- Six cream roses – $3.50
- Four stems of pink spray roses – $2.00
- A small bunch of Seeded Eucalyptus – $2.00
The total for the flowers was about $15 per centerpiece, so not too bad!
I have a video below with step-by-step instructions of how I put it together. (Until my mom rang the doorbell, but you should get the basic idea. Haaaa!)
To start, I used eucalyptus and greened the vase, then added my two hydrangeas. I filled in next with the pale pink roses and placed them in the four “corners” of the hydrangea and then placed another pink roses in the center/top. I then went through and anyplace it was white, added the four pink spray roses, so basically in between the two pink roses. I finished it off with adding the white roses in throughout the arrangement wherever it had a hole or needed a little more texture.
I did a total of ten arrangements and she placed them down the table and filled in with the extra greenery as though it was a table runner, which is a great way to use the leftovers! I think this would also make a perfect Valentine’s party centerpiece as well!
