Baby’s breath, an ideal flower for January, they’re like little snowflakes only on a stem.
Nikas wedding was beautiful. I loved the back-drop at the reception. Kudos to Sveta, she did an amazing job! We had over 1000 of baby’s breath at this wedding. Each table held a tall vase with a big sphere of baby’s breath. The bride’s maids carried a bouquet of baby’s breath and the Bride held light pink tulips surrounded by baby’s breath. So, I think it’s safe to say the flower of choice was the Baby’s Breath.
A Huge thank you goes to all the ladies and gents that helped out. With over 30 tables to work on, it was nice to have an extra set of hands.
Ok, so the story behind this is that my phone died and I had no way of taking pictures of my work. Of course maybe if the cord was plugged in, my phone would have charged. So, I was thinking of taking pics of this process step by step starting with the centerpieces. I will do the best I can to walk you through this project. It’s actually pretty simple. We used tall vases but you can always just set these beauties on the table by themselves and they would still look magnificent. Russian weddings have a lot of food on the table so you need as much space as possible for that, so in this case the flowers had to be raised off the table. So here are the things you will need.
Glue Gun (to attach the plate to the vase)
1 Charger Plate (we used 6’ plates)
1 Pack of Flower Food
30 Stems of Baby’s Breath for smaller spheres (for larger just add more)
1 Oasis Foam (you can buy spheres all ready for the job, but if you would like to save money, go with just regular bricks)
1. First you will need to soak your foam in water. Take a bucket (or in the tub), put your flower food on the bottom and fill it with water. You want to do this at least a day ahead so the foam can absorb the water. Don’t drown your foam in water or you will create air bubbles. Let it slowly sink down on its own to be completely full of water.
2.Place your wet foam on a plate. If you’re planning on using vases it’s easier to work with your centerpiece on top of the vase for better visual.
3.Cut your baby’s breath to about 5-6” slanted so it’s easier for the flower to absorb water. Start your way from the top center and work your way down.
4.We filled our vases with just water for more elegant look but you can fill them with pretty much anything you desire!
5.Once your centerpiece is ready you can glue your plate to the vase to secure it in place.
Wal-la, Easy Peasey! You’re done!
