How many individual blooms were in each of your centerpieces, and what kind of flowers did you use? Also, if you know what the size of your vases were, that would be helpful. And of course, post pictures of your centerpieces!

I’ve been wondering the same thing as I am DIY-ing my own centerpieces, commenting to keep track of this post! Can’t wait to see what other bees say.

Ours were HUGE… Just the vases were 2′ tall. I want to say there were 2 dozen stems in each centerpiece?

@BrandNewBride: Wow! I bet that looked amazing. Our vases will be quart-sized mason jars so they won’t be nearly as big as yours. But I googled it and found something that said you’ll need 50-75 flowers per centerpiece and I was like there’s no way that’s right. It’s good to know that even with something as big as your centerpieces were, that many flowers won’t be necessary.

I’ve been wondering the same thing and wondering whether or not to go with real flowers or silk. I can say that I’ve been practicing when I go to the craft store. I use a quart sized mason jar and fill it with flowers (mostly peonies) and it takes 8 or 9 to get a full look. However, I don’t know if the size is the same as what a real peony would be.

I think it depends on the look you are going (if you want it tightly packed or the flowers a bit more “relaxed”) for and the blooms you are using. I will be including greenery in mine to bulk it out. I had a look through your old posts and saw you were looking at ranunculus. I was just looking at this page and thought it was so pretty and uses them in a lot of their arrangements http://www.petalandfeast.co.uk/gallery-flowers/ it is pretty heavy in pictures.
