Imagine a sphere of bright-red flowers sitting on a pedestal or floating in a pool. Whimsical globes consisting of hundreds of orange, red, fuschia, and yellow Gerbera daisies are one of the specialties of Avi Adler Flowers in Brooklyn, New York. Large or small, in groups or alone, these fanciful flower balls are like nothing you or your guests have ever seen.
Dipping the flowers into preserving solution seals moisture into them, prolonging their life. This is the magic that makes it possible to place these centerpieces almost anywhere without worrying about wilting. Sturdy flowers such as carnations and Gerbera daisies must be used to ensure a clearly defined form. You can also use Styrofoam in the shape of pyramids or cubes as a base to create a different effect.
