These square vase centerpieces are so simple you can actually insert the flowers in minutes once you've gotten the hang of it! Continue adding more stems, taking care not to dislodge the earlier stem insertions.
The stems don't have to be perfect, but you do have to take care that every cut stem is under water, otherwise it won't last without water.
Turn your vases around, making sure you do the same on all sides.
Insert occasionally between the "holes" created by the other flowers. Work the stems gently in between the others. Slip the shortest stems on the sides, under the heads of the first flower insertions.
Colored corsage pins come in a range of colors. You can use Pixi Pins or cut regular corsage pins shorter with heavy wire cutters..
Insert each pin head in the center of each flower head. These pins won't rust when in moist environments.
The final design is chic and modern. Use them for bridal showers or as portions of clustered centerpieces of different heights or vase styles.
Finish every flower design with a good misting of flower sealant such as Finishing Touch or Crowning Glory.
