Parade of Blooms

Martha Stewart Weddings, Winter 2004

Delicate and airy, this centerpiece composed of single blossoms lets you make the most of a limited group of flowers. Showcase each one -- we used dahlias and garden roses -- in clear glass vessels, such as bud vases, jars, or even drinking glasses. To accentuate the arrangement, set the flowers on a runner whose hue contrasts with the color of the tablecloth.

    Different heights and sizes of bud vases grouped together in the centre, each with only a couple of flowers in different colors,would look nice. Or dye the water in bud vases your colors and only use white or one color of flower. Be aware that the color of the dye can be pulled into the flowers so make sure to seal the bottom of the stems. Hope this helps:)

    Anyone have any recommendations on how to make this look "nice" with rounded tables? My wedding is in the Caribbean - therefore having limited space to pack things up to ship. My colors are bright green, pink, and yellow. The table linens provided are white. I want to use bud vases for the small amount of flowers we're having, but am stuck on how to arrange them on the rounded tables. Help! My wedding is less than a month away. ideas anyone?!
