The materials that I use are as follows...
The steps that I am going to show you is very simple. It doesn't involve much work but the result is amazing.
If you ever to have a great table centerpiece and prefer less hassle, I would definitely recommend this cymbidium orchid centerpiece.
First, soak a block of floral foam in clean water. After it is fully absorbed with water, cut it to form a smaller rectangle.
Wrap the block of cut foam with transparent plastic, leaving only the top face exposed. That is where you will insert the flowers. Secure the wrapping with cellophane tape.
Next, take the cypress sticks and cut them with lengths about 1cm longer than the height of the foam.
Now, wrap all the sides of the foam with double sided tape.
Take each piece of cypress stick and stick it onto the side of the foam vertically. Continue until all the sides are covered with cypress sticks.
Now, your container is ready.
With this above-mentioned technique, you can save money from buying a container. It is a very cost effective way to make a table centerpiece.
Using this technique, you can make the 'container' into any shape you want. You don't have to look around looking for the right container.
It's time to insert the flowers.
Cut each flower separately leaving a few inches of stem for insertion.
Before insertion, a good advice would be to prepare your yellow cymbidiums. When it first arrives, the petals may not be fully open yet. Use your hands and gently open up the petals one by one.
Then, insert the yellow cymbidiums into the foam.
Halfway through, insert the asparagus leaves. A few would do. The yellow cymbidiums are big enough to cover the foam.
Continue on inserting the cymbidiums until the whole container looks full.
Now, we decorate the container a bit. Take the rafia tie a bow around the container like this...
This is what it looks like. If you like it as it is, leave it at that.
If you like to add a little bit more design to it, add bear grass leaves like this...
Now, your cymbidium orchid centerpiece is ready. If you have a long table, make 2 or 3 of these. Your guests will certainly notice it from afar.
Make your own centerpiece using these other ideas, too...
