how to make table centerpieces

You can make table centerpieces in the familiar "bubble bowl" that can be found easily in dollar, thrift or discount stores.  They are simple to design and you can change the look with your own flower choices.  Remember that flower designing begins with buying quality flowers and processing them correctly. 

The following products were used in this tutorial:

Although I used waterproof tape for this tutorial (it photographs better than clear tape) you'll want to use clear floral tape.  This helps create a grid that is virtually invisible against clear glass.  It comes in different widths - including very narrow.

Make sure your bubble (or fish) bowl is complete clean and dry.  Pour your water that's been treated with fresh flower food into the bowl about half way up.  You want to be sure any cut stems are completely immersed below the water line, but not so full that it splashes around during delivery.

Please don't skip the flower food.  Flowers are living products that need food and water as any other living plant does.  You'll extend the life of your flowers at keep them fresh longer by using a few cheap products found in every professional flower shop.
