Centerpieces add a certain flair and charm to what can be a plain table-setting arrangement. Candles, vases and baskets are dressed up to add an extra splash of color to the table. A way is to make the centerpiece functional involves a centerpiece with cupcakes for an event where cake is being served, like a wedding or birthday. Making a flower-pot cupcake centerpiece allows you add your own personal touch to your event.
Things You'll Need
- Terra-cotta flower pot
- Acrylic paints
- Art paint brushes
- Flower foam
- Wooden or plastic dowel rods
- Silk flowers and leaves
- Silk ribbon (optional)
Rinse a terra cotta flower pot well, if removed from the garden, and allow to air dry completely.
Paint the outside of the of the pot a color using acrylic paint unless you wish to retain the natural color for your centerpiece.
Insert floral foam into the flower pot. Trim the foam with a knife to fit inside the pot securely. Shape the top of the floral foam into a slightly rounded shape.
Bake your cupcakes as per your recipe. Allow them to cool completely. Frost them in your chosen pattern, such as a swirl or roses.
Insert wooden or plastic dowel rods into the flower foam all the way around the flower pot -- using a dowel rod for each cupcake.
Fill in the gaps between the dowel rods with silk leaves, baby's breath and flowers inserted into the foam.
Secure the cupcakes onto the dowel rods through the center of the bottom of the cupcakes. Place a colorful silk ribbon or bow around the side of the flower pot or paint the table's number on the side using the acrylic paint.
