Baby's Breath Submersible Centerpiece


Decorate your table with this beautiful submerged flower centerpiece. Complete with delicate baby's breath and romantic lighting, this arrangement is ideal for a wedding, dinner party or event.
Gather together your materials. For a single table centerpiece you will need 3 clear glass cylinder vases in varying heights, real touch artificial baby's breath, glass vase filler, 3 submersible LED lights and 3 floating candles.
**Tip** You can use any faux flowers for this project. We chose real touch flowers in white. If you are using a colorful, silk stem be sure to test it in water prior to making your centerpiece to make sure the color does not bleed into the water.
Fill your glass cylinder vases with about 2 inches of vase filler. We used clear glass vase filler for this centerpiece.
Turn your submersible LED lights on according to the packaged directions. These particular LED lights turn on by twisting the bottom.
Turn the light upside down and push it into the vase filler. We found the light disperses better through the clear vase filler when placed upside down. You may need to add a little more vase filler to cover the plastic bottom of the LED light.
**Tip** Read the packaging carefully when purchasing your LED lights. Many of the lights will last up to 24 hours so you can make your centerpiece early in the day and it will still be lit up at night.
Cut the baby's breath into assorted sizes.
Begin adding your stems into the vase filler. Start with the smaller pieces and work your way to the top.
Use varying heights of baby's breath stems, continuing to build it up in a circular pattern until you reach the height you want.
By working in a circular pattern you are ensuring that the arrangement looks full from all sides.
Add water, leaving an inch or two at the top for your floating candles.
**Tip** Make sure your centerpiece is arranged where you want it before adding the water. Once the water is added the vases become very heavy and awkward to move.
Light the candles and you now have a romantic table centerpiece. Because you used faux flowers you can deconstruct this arrangement after your party and use everything again!
Artificial flowers are a great choice for weddings, events or even a dinner party. You can find everything used here at Afloral.com.
