Start working on these 1 day before your ceremony.
- Cut flowers so they stand between 1 and 2 feet high. Fill floral water picks with tepid water, then place one on the end of each stem. If some stems are especially narrow, group two or three in the same tube. Refrigerate everything in buckets overnight.
- Insert picks into the wooden panels, nestling them between the pinecones and the grid of branches. Start in the middle with the greens to create a hedge, and then fill out toward the edges with the colored flowers. If some of the water tubes remain visible, go back in and cover the top of the panel with a layer of moss.
