Create a floral centerpiece for your next party! This is a sponsored post with Goodwill San Antonio but all ideas and opinions are my own.
Spring and Easter are the perfect time to head outside to have parties in the garden! After being cooped inside all winter, who isn’t looking for an excuse to linger outside a while? This floral centerpiece is made with thrifted items from Goodwill San Antonio, but looks high end! Add whimsy to your tea party or garden party with this fun project.
Supplies Used to make the floral centerpiece:
- Plates (3) in different sizes
- Candle Holders (2)
- Tea Cup
- Cupcake Liners
- Flowers (artificial or real)
- E-6000 Glue
Note: Choose dinner and dessert plates that vary in size. Place the largest plate on the bottom and the smallest plate on top.
Step one: Squeeze E-6000 glue on the bottom of the candle holder. Center the candleholder on the largest plate, and glue it in place. Use a ruler to help make sure that the candle holder is in the center of the plate. Let the glue dry for a few minutes before going to the next step.
Step two: Put E-6000 glue on the top of the candle holder, and center the middle sized plate on top off it. Let the glue dry for 10-15 minutes.
Step three: Add glue to the base of the second candle holder, and center it on the middle plate. Let the glue set for a few minutes before going on to the next step.
Step four: Put E-6000 on the top of the candleholder, and place the smallest plate on top of the candleholder. Again, let it dry for a few minutes before continuing.
Step five: Glue the tea cup on the top of the tower. Let the project dry.
Step six: When you are ready to set up your centerpiece, line the middle space with cupcake liners. Place a flower in each liner, and add greenery around the “cupcakes”. (I used floral arrangements I found at Goodwill. I dusted them off and cut them apart to use.)
Step seven: Fill the plates and the tea cup on top with flowers. I used artificial flowers for my arrangement, but this would be beautiful with freshly cut flowers, too. You could use wet floral foam wrapped in plastic to keep the flowers fresh.
This pretty floral centerpiece would be perfect for an “Alice in Wonderland” party. It would also look great at a garden party, bridal shower, or baby shower. Have fun crafting and creating decor for your next party!
