Did you know there are different centerpieces made for various events? Whatever type of centerpiece you choose for your big day, make sure to see if it’s either a low flat base or a tall skinny centerpiece. Why? Because both of these centerpieces won’t block the eye level of your guests.

What you need:
- Centerpiece (of your choice)
- Selected wildflowers- 6-7 large wildflowers with 2-3 sprigs/ twigs
- Flower stem wrapping tape
- Sharp scissors
- Put out your plants, and arrange them according to their colors and size. Cut any extra greens near the stems and arrange them.
- Once laid out, arrange the flowers one by one. First, display a layer of bigger blooms, then bind them with wrapping tape. Now add extra blooms and greens outside the wrapped flowers. Keep adding until you get your perfect size.
- Now trim the stems, ensure they’re all equal lengths and do not cut them too short before displaying them in the centerpiece.
