Hi my name is Becky Sosa with and I'd like to talk to you about how to use flowers to make wedding centerpieces. First we'll start with a simple one. We've got a vase filled with water here and we've got a gerber daisy. You want to make sure your daisy is small enough that it will fit inside your vase. Cut the stem off and set it in and let it float. And there you've got just a very simple way to use a flower. If you want to use more flowers, you can take a larger vase, put some marbles or rocks in the bottom of it. You will want to add water once you get your flowers in it. And then you're going to want to start putting your flowers in. Make sure you have enough and once you have enough you can cut the stems down to the right height. And then go ahead and start cutting these down a little bit. Always cut your stems at an angle for your centerpiece is so that they'll be able to absorb the water and stay fresh throughout your wedding reception. They don't have to be an exact height but they just need to be a similar height. Crisscrossing the stems gives it a little bit of support when you're putting it in there. Or you can put if you have flowers that need a little extra support you can put them inside floral foam and then put the floral foam underneath the marbles. Arrange them to where you're happy with them and remember that a centerpiece is in the center of the table so everyone will get to see it so you want to make sure the flowers are nice on all sides. And that's one way to use flowers in your wedding centerpieces.
