This fall centerpiece needs some lighter blooms to provide a nice contrast.
I cut the stems apart, and wired and taped with stem wrap.
By doing this, I can cut apart and use the flowers in different lengths. Again, take note that the ends droop in a natural curve to the table top.
I began tucking in the flowers in different places, pushing some stems in deeper to give depth to the centerpiece.
A side view shows the nicely domed effect and how the stems of flowers all angle out from the center and top.
