Making a Floral Centerpiece In A Clear Vase requires some sort of visible filler which will match your decor and be appealing to the arrangement.
When my daughter turned 30 a while back, my son-in-law hosted a beautiful soiree at their home in her honor. He did a simply fabulous job with planning and pulled the party off without a hitch.
Pink, Gold and Black were the colors Tiffany selected for her theme and I think it turned out really pretty with that touch of pink.
Knowing my daughter’s love for Cherry Blossoms I decided to make her a pink floral centerpiece featuring faux Cherry Blossom stems. I headed out to one of my favorite craft supply stores. Lucky for me I found some sparkly gold yarn on clearance which I thought would be great for lining inside of the vase to hide the floral foam.

I did not glue the floral foam into the vase. My daughter is as frugal as I am so I knew she would be deconstructing the centerpiece to repurpose the pieces eventually. After inserting the foam, I begin to wrap the gold yard around it and tuck it down into the vase.
Then I began adding the stems. It is possible to bend the stems around to make the arrangement appear more full after getting them all added.
Because I did not glue the foam into place, it meant that I needed to use enough decor around it to hold the foam up straight. I had hoped two packages of the pretty gold yard would suffice for this.
Once all the stems are in place, now it is time to fill in the top with faux grass. I wound up having to tuck faux grass down along the side to steady the center.
The Pink Floral Centerpiece In A Clear Vase turned out beautiful and created a striking centerpiece for my daughter’s 30th birthday celebration. It is the largest centerpiece I have attempted and I was pleased with the outcome.
