Ok, I’m a little confused, but I think I’ve got it.  Your florist wants to do one bowl with water and float three white and yellow gerbera daisies in them, and that’s all?  What about the navy?  Can she do a mock-up for you?

If you like this basic idea but think it’s too bland, there are a couple of things you could do to spice it up.  You could put interesting rocks in the bottom of the vases.  A few petals or blooms and maybe some of the rocks used in the bottom of your vase scattered outside the vase would look good on their own, or with votives that have a navy ribbon tied around them.  I wouldn’t worry about candles during the day, they always look pretty.

If you want to break it up a little bit, gerbera daisies look great on their own, so you could do smaller vases, maybe of different heights, and put one bloom in each with a few rocks in the bottom, and do a similar thing with the blooms and rocks around the vase.  If you need a picture to visualize it, let me know.


Good luck 🙂

It sounds like what your florist has planned doesnt really include the navy…maybe you could add a navy ribbon or something?? Or you could consider adding some sort of navy fabric under them, or table runners! If you’re going to do gerbera daisies, they look gorgeous on their own in vases with stems and all, althought the floating look is good if youre worried about centerpieces being too tall for guests to talk over them. Maybe you could add floating candles with the floating flowers (not sure if thats a fire hazard…). See if your florist will do a mock-up for you…that’s probably your best bet at seeing what you think. 🙂 Good luck!
