Floating flowers are a fun way to decorate for special occasions, or to simply create something different for your dining room table. Most flowers float pretty well on their own until they start to pool with water and slowly sink. For a longer lasting centerpiece, use bubble wrap to make little skirts for your flowers. Flower Arranging expert Louise Larabie shares her tips on the basic of a good flower arrangement with Dot Com Women. For any successful flower arrangement a well balanced shape and a proper balance and proportion are the most essential steps.
If you have ever tried arranging flowers in a wide mouth vase or bowl. Then you know that the flowers tend to just fall to the side. Making it difficult to arrange something that looks half-way decent. Just be sure that the rim of your bowl or vase is dry and your container is full of water before assembling your grid. The only downfall I’ve found with this method is that it is more difficult to change the water. Instead of the traditional vase of flowers, think outside of the vase (or inside rather), and choose one large flower or group of flowers to showcase inside of a cylinder vase or glass.
Use rocks to keep the flower(s) upright, and add just enough water to keep the stems soaked. I think this looks really stylish and unique! It’s also budget friendly considering you only need one flower to make it pretty. Although you do have to make sure the rim of your vase is 100% dry or it will slip out of place. This is one my all time favorite ways to add a little pizzazz to any vase!
