This centerpiece is Quick & Easy To Make

And one you might be able to create without spending too much money or none at all.

What do you need?

  1. A platter or tray that will hold water
  2. Four Short Drinking glasses
  3. 1 Wine Glass with a short stem, or a taller drinking glass
  4. Assorted flowers (I bought a small bouquet from the grocery store and picked other flowers from around the house)
  5. Four tea light candles
  6. Water

Assembling the Centerpiece

  1. Arrange flowers in the wine glasses, cutting the stems so they aren’t too tall. (you do want your guests to b able to see over the centerpiece)
  2. Once the wine glass is filled with flowers, you will want to assemble the centerpiece in place

  3. Place the ‘vase’ of flowers in the center of the tray
  4. Arrange four glasses around the “vase”
  5. Fill the short glasses about halfway with water
  6. Place 2-3 flower buds in each glass
  7. Fill tray with water
  8. Float tealights between each drinking glass
  9. arrange assorted flower buds around tray./li>
