What did you use to hold the baby’s breath in?  Floral foam?  If so, how did you get the floral foam to stay on the candle holder?  I am also doing baby’s breath and I’m not sure how to get the foam to stay on the top and yet not drip water on the table (since I’m told to soak it in water to keep the flowers hydrated). 

Also–we went to Home Depot and bought stair spindles for $2 each, cut 6 inches off each end and then screwed it to a wood base–it’s tall enough and cheap.  Then I spray painted the whole thing gold.  My plan was to screw a plastic bowl to the top to hold the floral foam but I’m trying it out at Christmas so I’m not sure yet if that will work.  Suggestions welcome!

I have heard that a ot of grocery stores and chains get the picked over left over flowers. So whatever the wholesaler doesn’t sell to the florists they sell to the grocery stores. Therefore it is older stock and usually doesn’t last as long, but with baby’s breath I don’t think that would matter much.

Good Job this is a great alternative to the heavy price of fresh flowers if it’s not in your budget.

Looks good. ~Kay

Hey, That looks really great!  I am surprised to be saying that because I wouldn’t think that Baby’s breath alone could look so lovely-great job!
