Simple Floating Flower Centerpiece Tutorial

Step By Step : DIY Floating Flower Centerpieces This is by far our simplest and easiest tutorial thus far but that is one of the reasons why we HAD to share it with you! We just love the effect that these small glass vases has in making what appear to be floating flowers on a table spread. Often with wedding decor, the simpler a solution, the more elegant the effect and in this case that is definitely true. If you are looking for a simple way to present flowers in a cost effective and still totally elegant way, this may be just the answer for you. We found these vases as the flower market, but similar ones can be bought in bulk online. We love these more rustic vases that could be used in the same way! As far as choosing flowers, we can’t think of anything that wouldn’t work with these vases. Though, the wider and flatter the blossom the better the effect which is why we went with these gorgeous pink rannuculus blossoms! That said, I would love to see this done with peonies or magnolias. Have fun!
