Don't have the skill or inclination to do a formal flower arrangement? If, like me, you're not a very talented flower arranger, this is an easy floral piece you can do without an oasis.
This centrepiece won't stand the test of time, or withstand the rigours of a formal event, but is ideal for informal, candle lit dinner parties. A great way to display flowers from your own garden, too. Substitute your favourite seasonal flowers for the poppies and pansies, if you prefer.
Proceed as follows: place a big candle in the centre of a dinner plate, (or dish with slightly raised edges). Pour a shallow layer of water into the plate. Surround the candle with flower heads, with their stems in the water. Stick smaller, contrasting flowers and foliage into the gaps.
A quick, more environmentally-friendly way of arranging flowers.
A great decoration for a coffee table, especially for afternoon tea parties. Use several pieces of your tea service to create this easy centerpiece. We used candles, crockery and flowers in warm, autumn colours to complement the brass candle holders, but adapt the colours to suit your own seasonal taste and dècor.
A shallow, oval dish
2 taper candle holders
1 ball candle, 2 taper candles
A round bowl, which the ball candle fits into
Flowers, (we used asters)
Place the bowl into the oval dish. Place 2 candlesticks on either side of the dish, with taper candles in them. Pour water into the dish and arrange the flowers loosely around the bowl with their stems sticking into the water. Put the ball candle into the bowl.
You need no special flower arranging skills to achieve this simple flower and candle centerpiece, with the rustic look.
An earth-toned vase or ceramic flower pot
A tall cylinder candle slightly narrower than the opening of the vase Use an ivory candle or one matching the colour of your vase .
Yellow, orange or rust-coloured flowers
Add some water to the vase. Place the candle in the vase. Stick the flowers in loosely around the candle in a way that is pleasing to your eye.
Other flowers you can use: marigolds, daisies, any other long-stemmed flowers. Not delicate, sophisticated flowers such as orchids and roses.
