Many times when I’m doing consults, my clients will say they have wine barrels that they want to decorate for their ceremony flowers, and they can feel a bit challenged about what / how many flowers to use to adequately cover them! So, here’s a fun two-part idea and all the working parts to go with it.
This cart will easily cover two wine barrel tops and make two lovely large arrangements to go on the top of the hurricane (or other cylinder vases of your choice), creating a nice two-tiered effect. The vases can also be removed post-ceremony and used elsewhere, for example on a welcome vase, food table or other areas.
Supplies You’ll Need:
Wholesale Flower Order:
- 20 stems of lilac kale
- 5 bunches of green gladiolus
- 8 stems of antique blue jumbo hydrangea
- 5 bunches of bay leaf greenery
- 6 large wildflower centerpieces
- 5 bunches of agnois branches
This entire look could easily be swapped for a rich color palette. For example, burgundy gladiolus or bright snapdragons; as long as you have some larger sized blooms mixed in with tall flowers.
Hurricane Vase Arrangement
- 3 jumbo hydrangea (nestle it at the base of the front of the ring)
- 7 or so gladiolus
- 3 stems of kale
- 1 of the wildflower centerpieces
- 1-2 bunches (again, unlikely, you could do as little as a half bunch of each type) of greenery
Oasis Foam Wreath Arrangement
- 1 stem of jumbo hydrangea (nestle it at the base of the front of the ring)
- 17 stems or so of gladiolus (use these to disguise the cylinder vase, you may want to add them after you have placed the vase on top of the barrel)
- 7 stems of kale
- 2 of stems of the wildflower centerpieces
- 2-3 bunches (you likely won’t need to use that many, this is for safety) of greenery
- 3 more stems of jumbo hydrangea (nestle it at the base of the front of the ring)
