Submerged Flower Centerpiece

Pink flowers for wedding pink wedding centerpiece

Back in the day, when I was a wedding planner there was a summer when nearly every single bride brought me the same photo as centerpiece inspiration. In it were three cylinder vases with flowers submerged under water. It was a tad modern but the cherry blossoms in the shot made it feel sweet and perfect for a wedding. I thought it would be fun to recreate this submerged flower centerpiece for you readers because the whole put it under water thing means that you don’t need any actual skill to pull this off! Try it for your next party or just as a fun way to pretty up your coffee table! ~Rachel

    Great tips! I love topping this look with floating candles – they help keep the flowers submerged!

    Ooh! This is a nice idea! So simple, too. I’m currently plotting out the floral arrangements for my own wedding and I’m considering a mix of fresh flowers with dried accents. This could be really cool, too. Plus, DIY!

      You know, I’ve never tried it with fake flowers Brittany but I think it’s worth a shot! I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t work.

    Cut tulips about 1″ shorter than desired length as they will continue to absorb water into their stems & grow

    Type flower to submerge in water. Is it fresh flowers. Plastic flower, latex flower or silk flowers. Please respond thank you.
