I'm hosting a brunch, and with the arrival of spring, I thought it would be nice to use some of our daffodils from the yard to create a few centerpieces for the table. I arranged these as small bouquets, so each invited couple can bring one home with them.
I placed the bouquets in three matching iron urns, to create a topiary effect, and arranged them down the center of the table.
Helpful Hints for Arranging Bouquets and Topiaries
Gather the cut flowers in one hand, just under the blossoms, forming a small bunch. Secure the bunch with a rubber band placed as close to the flowers as possible. Gently twist the stems and secure them with another rubber band in the middle. With a sharp knife, cut the bottom of the stems, to the height you wish, so all ends are the same length. I embellished my bouquets with a burlap and ribbon sash and attached a vintage rhinestone. To form the topiaries, nestle a small glass in the bottom of the urns and surround it with scrunched paper to secure it. Place the bouquets inside and add dried moss to keep the bouquets standing straight in the urns.
At the conclusion of our brunch, I just have to slip the bouquets out, dry the ends off, and they are ready for our guests to bring home!
