Step 1: Supplies
Here are the supplies needed to create a great floral centerpiece
Orchids - Some great colors will really pop
A large Vase
Step 2: Place Pebbles
Start by placing the pebbles you have at the bottom of the vase. You'll want your pebbles to sit about 2" deep in the vase so they will somewhat anchor the flowers once they are placed.
Having the pebbles a similar color as the flowers really brought out the blue color. I would recommend getting pebbles that complement your flower color
Step 3: Add the Flowers
Now its time to add the flowers to the vase. Unlike most arrangements the flowers are actually fully encased in the vase so make sure the stems are cut so that the flower sits comfortably into the vase.
Be sure to stick the stem as far as you can into the glass pebbles so the flowers are less likely to move around.
Step 4: Add Water
Next it is time to add the water.
Distilled water works the best with flowers so that the flowers would last in the vases as long as possible. Fill the water to the top of the pebbles. It gives the vase a great look of not having water while still having water for the flowers to sit in.
Step 5: Display
Finally you have a great centerpiece to display on your tables. The piece will look great and give the tables a pop of color while still protecting the flowers and keeping them in good shape for as long as possible.
