Summer Centerpiece: From the Garden to Your Tabletop

By: Kim Coleman & Isabella Cirelli

A centerpiece doesn’t have to be all about flowers, use vegetables as a unique twist. Create this centerpiece using only the goodies from your garden or even any leftover produce from your fridge.

You Will Need:

  • Floral Picks
  • Floral Shears
  • Wooden Box
  • Oasis Floral Foam  
  • Fresh Flowers (To help fresh flowers from wilting put them in warm water)
  • Vegetables (We used bell peppers, kale, basil, oregano, artichokes, and parsley)

 

How To :

Step 1: Soak your oasis in warm water for about 5 min.

Step 2: Cut the oasis so it fits in your container (vase, box, etc.)

Step 3: Wrap the wire of the floral pick around the stem of the bell pepper.

Step 4: Start creating your centerpiece by establishing focal points (ours was the bell peppers and artichokes)

Step 5: Add your greenery. Remember whatever you do to one side try to match it on the other)

Step 6: Add flower accents.

Step 7: End by hiding any empty spots with greenery fillers and you’re done!

Enjoy!
