Those sound so beautiful! Gerberas are one of my favorite flowers. We’re floating the blossoms of a few in bowls for some of our centerpieces.

If they droop, would it be possible to wrap some very thin wire around the stem to help them stay upright? As far as the number to use, I’m not sure, but I did find this photo of a gerbera-and-others centerpiece in a julep cup:

I agree with Amysue- use thin floral wire wrapped around the stem- it will help hold them up.

Depending on how full you want the cup, 6 or 7 should be ok. Do a trial run- get one of the cups (since you’ll need them anyway) and get some Gerbera’s and see if it’ll work. My local florist sells them by the stem, so if yours does too, you could buy 7 of them and see if they work.

4 inched should be plenty high- your guests will all still be able to see each other.
