How to Create a Garden-Inspired Centerpiece

written by Thalia Basulto January 9, 2019

Bring a fresh springtime look into your home with a garden-inspired centerpiece using our kale garden party DIY pack! This DIY pack includes flowers like kale, lisianthus, scabiosa, and silver dollar eucalyptus— basically everything you need to create beautiful arrangements.

The unique kale in the pack adds fullness and interest while the whimsical scabiosa and lisianthus adds height. There are many flower designs you can create using this pack. Whether you’re walking down the aisle or simply decorating a tablesetting, this combo pack would be a perfect addition!

Use this pack on its own (like what we did) or add in some fun, texture-filled flowers like snapdragons, billy balls or scabiosa pods.

Read on to learn how to create your own garden-inspired arrangement.

1. Gather Your Supplies

Here’s exactly what you’ll need to create a DIY centerpiece:

  • Flowers
  • Shears
  • Tape
  • Your choice of vase

2. Prep Flowers

Upon arrival, begin prepping your blooms by trimming all stems, removing any foliage that will fall below the water level, and hydrating for at least 12 hours in cool, clean water.

3. Create a Grid with Tape

To keep the stems upright and supported, create a grid using Scotch Tape or any type of tape on your vase. Begin by taping four parallel lines across the rim of the vase. Then repeat this step facing the other side to create a grid.

4. Start with Greenery

Once your grid is complete, add in your greenery. You’ll want to green the outer edge of the grid first.  We used silver dollar eucalyptus.

5. Add Large Flowers

Then add in your large, focal flowers. In this case, we used kale as our focal flower. Its large, rose-like shape provided the perfect amount of fullness.

6. Fill in the Arrangement

Now that you have your greenery and focal flowers in, it’s time to fill out any empty spaces with your filler flowers. Filler flowers typically have a smaller bloom. We used flowers like lisianthus and scabiosa to fill in the gaps.

7. Add the Finishing Touches

Don’t be afraid to play around with the arrangement! Adjust as needed and add in more stems if you’d like.
