I want to have something like this but in a larger vase & with river rock at the bottom as our centerpieces. Has anybody done something like this? How did it turn out & do you have any tips? Thanks In Advance 🙂
SMY your DIY calla centerpieces.
I’m worried the lilies won’t stay under water so someone recommended using a flower frog/pin frog (see pic below) at the bottom of the vase. Anyone have experience with these?

My Florist used them (flower frog) for my centerpieces and they worked like a charm… Ill try to post a picture

Flowers frogs have been used forever to anchor flower arrangements.
The advantage of the river rock is that it will cover the frog.
Easy DIY centerpiece.

My mom (an event coordinator) recently did a really similar arrangement for a wedding, and it turned out beautifully.
Her secret was even cheaper and easier! She put a dab of adhesive on the bottom of the lilies and stuck them in, and put the river rocks in after she placed the lilies in.

the calla lillies look beautiful and exactly what i am thinking! our color is yellow though, so i will do yellow calla lillies. i was originally thinking three in each vase since you always hear to use odd numbers while decorating, but only having two in the first picture looks gorgeous! is there a “right” or “wrong” number to use? does anyone else have pictures of theirs?

another option is to swirl the calla lilly stems…they expand to fit the vessel and don’t require anything to hold them. like this:

Where can I get the pin frogs? We are using the same idea but using shorter vases so all our stems have to be cut down and then floating a candle on top.

Should I use real or fake calla lilies when creating a centerpiece like one in the original post?
