To me, there is nothing prettier for a party than an arrangement of live flowers. I had a wonderful time checking out the Candler Park Flower Mart in Atlanta and picking out this green and white selection for my DIY centerpiece. For a more unique look, I also chose a mercury glass jug from HomeGoods to serve as my vase.Supplies: Vase or other container Flowers Greenery Branches (Optional) Clear tape Cutting shears
1. Create a grid on top of your vase with clear tape. You’ll want to leave enough room between tape strips to place a couple of stems. I didn’t have floral tape handy, so I used gift wrap tape, and that worked really well.
2. Place the branches first and then surround these with a layer of greenery and tulips, keeping them long so they don’t get buried.
3. Add a base flower (hydrangea) to serve as a bed for the smaller accent flowers.
4. Add accent flowers and finish with several tall tulips. (I used a couple of green roses, bells of ireland, and chrysanthemums to cover empty space and add visual interest.) Gently add water as a final step.
