Floating Flowers Platter Centerpiece

Created By: Johnny Miller/Brown Bird Design

Introduction

It's a cheese board; it's a centerpiece; it's a place to corral cocktail garnishes. It's a basic white platter (this one's from cb2.com), the most versatile item in your cupboard. 

Float flowers like these peonies in small bowls, and arrange them with votive candles for a quick, modern centerpiece. On a long table, you can place a few platters down the middle.

    this idea is really pretty, but i fail to see how this is a craft, and not just an idea to buy a few things.

    Cynthia- if you have access to a HomeGoods, I'm sure you could find some options for the bowls. Or try a TJMaxx-- you never know what you'll find...

    Natrivinos- I think the Large cuatro platter, 16.75"Wx10"D, from CB2 would work wonderfully and serve as a great multitasker. I love their cuatro platter set- I could create a collection of the serving pieces pretty quickly...

    Hope this is helpful!

    I would also like to know where to find the bowls and is the cheese board the plato plater from cb2?

    Does anyone know where to find the small, white lotus bowls the flowers are floating in? I used to find them at Pier 1, but cannot now.
