Decorate your holiday tablescape with this beautiful and timeless magnolia flower arrangement.
Gather your materials. You will need 8 large velvet magnolia stems, 3 peonies, 4-5 small magnolia sprays, 2 magnolia leaf sprays, 1 vase, wire cutters, floral foam, and floral tape.
Place the piece of floral foam inside the vase. It does not have to fit the entire shape of the vase, simply cover the base of the bowl. Use a regular knife to cut the foam to fit, if needed.
With floral tape, create a criss-cross pattern to hold the floral foam in place.
Using wire cutters, carefully trim the magnolia leaf stems, leaving about 1/4 of the stem. Then push the flower stem into the lower sides of the floral foam, creating a base.
Carefully trim the velvet magnolia stems. Keep these stems the same size, this will create a rounded arrangement.
Push the stems into the sides and top of the floral foam.
Use the leaves that were removed from the magnolia stems to fill in any gaps and cover any visible floral foam.
Next, trim your peony stems. Push them into the floral foam between the pink velvet magnolia stems.
Finish the centerpiece with the smaller magnolia floral stems. Cut these at varying lengths to create a sense of depth and contrast to your arrangement. Place these in any areas there are gaps, or that needs a color break.
Using artificial flowers and greenery, you can create a floral arrangement that will last through the holidays and beyond!
