Place your stems in their appropriate vases, and fill with water. Finally, for the orchid centerpiece, place one floating candle on top, light it, and voila! You’re finished with your DIY submersible centerpiece.
Blue hydrangeas are a classic and popular wedding flower. These garden stems are perfect for a summer wedding, as they act as a gorgeous and natural accent, but don’t dominate the entire ceremony.
Assembling a blue hydrangea wedding is also incredibly easy. At the very least, you just need several hydrangea bushes, stem cutters, floral tape, large containers, and finishing ribbon for the bouquet wrap. If you want to create a more full and diverse look, you can also add in some assorted greenery or white/cream stems, such as a rose.
The visual below shows you just how easy it is to assemble your own blue hydrangea wedding bouquet.
I also fell in love with this wedding centerpiece pictured below. This is great for all you DIY brides who cannot get enough blue. The mason jars add a simple rustic touch and the blue hydrangeas definitely complete the look.
You can recreate this look by trimming off the stems from our blue hydrangea bush, and placing them in one of our blue mason jars. If you want to change it up a bit, scatter a couple mason jars around the event with white hydrangeas as well.
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!)
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.

A couple years ago, mercury glass vases entered the wedding decorations arena. They add a touch of elegance and glam to an otherwise simple wedding table arrangement. Personally, we love using mercury glass containers because they are so incredibly versatile, and add a bit of sparkle to any wedding theme.
Pair it with black and silver for a formal affair, or pair it with eggplant and burnt orange for an autumn wedding. The possibilities really are endless.
We recently created this look for an outdoor photoshoot. This table setting is perfect for a bright and cheery summer wedding. We mixed the mercury glass containers with fuchsia vintage bottles and faux flowers, which helped kept the entire look very fun and informal.
This look is way more elegant, and would be best for a late fall wedding. Keep it classy and simple with one eggplant colored rose and a couple sprays of black berries.
If you love mercury glass, but aren’t a huge fan of faux flowers, try incorporating greenery and succulents instead. We love this wedding centerpiece because the moss and greenery overflow outside the container. It is dramatic, but so easy to recreate.
This wedding table arrangement is so gorgeous.We love how the height of each piece varies. The low hydrangeas act as a gorgeous foundation to the high candleholders.
If I’m being honest, our products are actually pretty true to the way they’re pictured online. But sometimes, a photo might not clearly represent how the wedding bouquet looks in person. That is why we always, ALWAYS recommend ordering one or two samples before you place your entire order.
2. Know Your Ideal Size
Do you want a lush, full wedding bouquet or a simple, understated bouquet? Once you get your samples, bunch 2-3 bouquets together so you know how big you want your bridal bouquet to be. Sometimes, our brides will use three premade bouquets for their wedding bouquet and one for the bridesmaid bouquets, but it’s all up to you and your preference. Once you’ve figured this out, make sure you order accordingly.
3. Finish with Decorative Bouquet Wrap
If you’re ordering one of our premade wedding bouquets, chances are it is held together with green wrap or wire, but it doesn’t come with decorative ribbon around it. (Some of them do, but generally speaking, most do not). In your sample order, make sure you also pick out one or two different decorative ribbons to use for bouquet wrap. Test out each one, and when you’ve picked which one you like best, you can feel free to return the one you didn’t use, as long as it wasn’t cut.
The black and white striped ribbon is my absolute favorite, so simple and trendy
4. Don’t Forget Your Flower Girl
Sometimes our brides get so caught up in ordering bouquets for themselves and the bridesmaids, they forget to order something small for the flower girl. If she’s throwing petals, don’t forget to add some of our colorful rose petals to your cart. If she isn’t throwing petals, we recommend ordering a kissing ball for her to carry down the aisle.
These bright pink petals are so cheery, perfect for a summer wedding.
5. Fluff It
Finally, don’t forget ladies, these are faux flowers. When you pull them out of the box, there is a chance that they might be slightly bent, and will need some love. Position the flower head outward, and pull the stems a bit more towards you. This is what we call “fluffing”
