Use Hanging Bushes to Make a Wedding Centerpiece

Last week, I talked to all our Flower Friends about how to use spring bushes to make a wedding centerpiece. This week, I want to kick it up a notch, and show you how to make gorgeous wedding or at home arrangements with our hanging bushes.

If you prefer a more romantic, whimsical look, a hanging bush will make a perfect centerpiece. The stems will flow over the container, and add an effortless, beautiful touch to your wedding or home decor.

The cerise azalea bush pictured above would be a great outdoor spring centerpiece. Wonder why I say outdoor? Because it’s waterproof :) (Waterproof faux flowers, what a wonderful world!)

Place some foam in a large container, perhaps something like the Whitewashed Natural Wood Container or the Terra Cotta Pot in Antique Blue, and then just stick the hanging bush in the foam.

Fluff it a bit, and you’re done. So easy, right?

Here’s an example of the finished product, we found this gorgeous azalea centerpiece on

If you’re more of a greenery fan, and not so much into flowering stems, vines, and garlands, check out our decorative sweetheart bush in variegated green. This so simple and lovely.

This hanging bush will look gorgeous indoors or outdoors; in winter, spring, summer, or fall. (Ok, well I don’t recommend you leave it outside in -5 degree weather, but that’s your call).

When it’s all said and done, it doesn’t take a crafting genius to put together a centerpiece with hanging bushes. It literally takes you less than ten minutes to assemble, and if you take care of your faux flowers, it could last for years.
