    A simple, cost effective centerpiece is what we often hear brides requesting, especially when they are going the DIY route. One fabulous idea is to use submerged flowers.

    A clear glass vase filled with water magnifies the flowers that are submerged inside. Using a statement flower such as a Dendrobium Orchid makes an elegant statement that is impressive to your guests without breaking the budget.

    We often get questions about what types of flowers are easy to use for making DIY centerpieces. One of our favorites are hydrangea! These beauties are so versatile, have a timeless appeal, and are pretty easy to work with.

    This past weekend we made lovely blue hydrangea centerpieces that I think are an excellent choice for the DIY bride as well. These are affordable choice … Vases are ivy bowls available at craft or discount stores for less than $2 each. Filled with 3 of our blue hydrangea the entire cost is less than $15 each!

    Summer is a perfect time for stargazing, and nothing speaks to that better than a wedding featuring Stargazer Lilies. A recent bride chose to carry a bouquet of lilies, white roses and green hypericum berry. Her table centerpieces were simple yet elegant cylinder vases with lilies and a touch of bear grass.

    Our bride Erin wanted a simple color palette for her wedding, and chose a single flower type to go with it… Beautiful Gerbera Daisies! Working with just two varieties, Shimmer and Diablo, she created a fresh spring look for her Mother’s Day wedding.

    We created her bouquet, corsages and Boutonnieres, and she made her own centerpieces from matching gerberas she bought through our DIY site.

    The Shimmer gerberas are the white with pink centers, and the Diablo are the light pink.

    Stephanie and her husband were married in Key West, Florida in mid-July, and then had a great reception back home for family and friends.    Held at the Mayernik Center at Avonworth Community Park, they themed their reception around lemons and limes for a great Florida twist.    We created two different types of centerpieces, one which featured lemons and daisies, and the other featured limes and dendrobium orchids.   The beautiful mantel was adorned with family wedding photos and our Lemon Stacks, and finished with some loose Lemon Leaf foliage (or Salal for those of you looking to use this foliage in your wedding or event).   We also showed the Lemon Stacks and the 2 types of centerpieces at the guest book area for a great feature.     We heard so many comments from the family and their guests that the centerpieces were a big hit, and that it was fun to see something different on the tables for this reception!
