get a block of floral foam, cover it with baby’s breath, and then stick it on the top of your spindles. you might want to use double-stick tape so it stays.

I was also going to suggest floral foam.

And holy crap I love the look of this! I never even thought to use baby’s breath!

Are you planning on using them after your wedding? If not, I would suggest you put a thinner wider piece of the same material that you are using for the base on the top of your candlesticks and then hot glue the foam to the base. Then you can stick the baby’s breath into the foam that way. I think it will be much more stable than double sided tape.

I LOVE these. How many bunches of baby’s breath do you use per centerpiece? And where do you buy the vases at?

Does anyone have an answer for how many bunches of baby’s breath are needed for a large display?

My florist is doing these, modeled off of this exact picture– I can let you girls know how many bunches she uses if you like. 🙂

I personally would have a nail stuck through the top of the spindle just so you can pierce the foam onto the spindle and not worry about the weight of it pulling it off.

The floral foam can be soaked and than removed before adding flowers.  Not sure on the timetable but I just take it out and let it sit in a container a minute to drain the excess water.

We have used baby’s breath for baby shower’s etc.  To make a large centerpiece like that would take 1-1.5 bunches.  Good news is that its relatively cheap. Good luck all!

Only 1-2 bunches baletrina?! That’s great. I’m looking for the most bang for my buck since I’m DIYing this.

I love what you did for your wedding. It’s so beautiful. What are the flowers hanging from the ceiling? Also, I love your DIY spindles. So crafty. If you have more pics I would love to see them.
