Flickering Candlelight for the tables of a Fall wedding.
For the wedding of a client many years ago, the Bridesmaids carried a lantern decorated with flowers. After the ceremony, the lanterns were placed on the tables of the reception. It also was a memento from the wedding for the Bridesmaids.
You Will Need:
Small Block of Wet Foam
#22 Florist Wire
Floral Wrap Tape
To begin this arrangement, cut a small block of wet foam to rest on the lid of the lantern, just below the ring. Saturate the wet foam. Cover a piece of florist wire with floral wrap tape. Wrap the tapped wire around the base of the ring to the lantern. Place the wet foam on the lid and wrap with the ends of the wire. Twist lightly to secure, don’t break the foam.
Take a piece of ribbon and tie around the base of the ring to the lantern covering the taped wire. Place small pieces of greenery in the wet foam to cover the foam. Make a small bow and place in the center of the wet foam. Fill around the bow with small blooms of assorted flowers. Place autumn leaves on the ends of small pieces of florist wire. Secure with floral wrap tape. Place pieces of wired leaves throughout the flowers and bow. Be sure to place blooms to the back of the lantern, to complete the picture.
