Figs and Vines Centerpiece

Centerpieces don't have to be perfectly balanced and precisely composed. There's beauty in letting flowers and vines be their riotous, sprawling selves.

materials

  • Flowering clematis and passionflower vines

  • Fresh figs

  • Ramekin (3 1/2 inches in diameter) for the base

  • Ceramic cake stand (10 inches in diameter) for the base

  • Floral wax

  • Floral frog

steps

  1. Using a dime-size ball of floral wax, attach a floral flog to the inside of the ramekin.

  2. Using a pinch of floral wax, secure the bottom of the ramekin to the cake stand.

  3. Fill ramekin with water, and insert small, flowering clematis and passionflower vines (2 to 3 of each) into frog. Wrap 1 or 2 vines around the ramekin to conceal it, and let the others trail off the stand.
