These purple candelabra flowers are created on a foam sphere and a wreath with the romance of ivy trailers.  The colors can easily be changed to match your own wedding flowers colors.

To create a similar look, you'll need the following fresh flowers and florist supplies:

Float soak both the foam sphere and the wreath in water that has been treated with fresh flower food.  Wrap florist with green stem tape.  Push two wires through the foam ball, about a third from the bottom, forming and "X" shape.  Leave these wires sticking out.  You will use these later to wrap around the candelabra cup to keep the sphere in place.

Soak the ivy in a tepid water bath.  Fasten the ivy strands to wooden picks.

Design the flowers on both the wreath and the sphere.  If you need step by step directions, check out the sphere tutorials and the wreath tutorials.

Mist well with flower sealant and secure the flowers in the foam with Floralock.  Keep in cool area until wedding day.  

Deliver to the church and carefully lay the wreath on the arms of the candelabra.  Add the votive candles to the glass globes.

Lay the wreath on the top globe support.  Wire in place.  Use ivy strands with ivy picks and insert the ivy into the top sphere and drape down over the sides of the candelabra.  Insert some of the strands in the lower wreath and allow the ivy to drape down the sides.
