Floral designers Remco Van Vliet and his half brother, Cas Trap, show us how to create a low centerpiece.
- Line a low, wide glass bowl with hydrangea foliage.
- Create a base with blocks of soaked floral foam, covering as much surface area as possible.
- Place large hydrangea blooms evenly to create a balanced structure that can support the rest of the flowers.
- Add dusty miller and sea thistle along the lower edges.
- Fill In with roses, echinops, astrantia, and mountain laurel, distributing colors evenly.
- Turn the bowl frequently as you work to keep arrangement balanced.
- Finish by placing stems of clematis and lady's mantle and branches of blueberries, using their color and texture as accents.
