Spray Wedding Centerpiece

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2011
When to start: The day of the wedding

1. Soak a piece of floral foam in water, and place it inside a plastic plant saucer. Attach the foam to the dish with a few lengths of green adhesive floral tape.

2. Position the dish on top of the candlestick, and secure it in place with more floral tape (this will later be covered by flowers). Begin inserting stems into the foam. Tip: Create the overall globe shape out of miniature daisies first, then add volume with the Queen Ann's lace and baby's breath. As you're working, keep an eye on the outer perimeter so the lengths stay the same and the silhouette remains intact.

    The "miniature daisies" are actually a type of spray aster aka Monte Casino... This is what it is called by the florist. Another thing, as a 25 year veteran florist, I would not consider this an "inexpensive" centerpiece at all.

    How many of each flower will I need to make this centerpiece?

    I am having trouble finding miniature daisies on wholesaler lists. I want to be sure I order exactly the right flowers. Is there another commonly used name for them in the floral design industry?
